Hearing the Healing Video

Hearing the Healing

"I was…being tormented every night through vivid hallucinations… reliving events that had occurred in Afghanistan. …that's just one of the symptoms of PTS and TBI: I couldn't actually read. I'd read the same sentence 4, 5, 6 times. The words just weren't making sense. …you can't hear God's Word and not be affected. …He's turned my entire life around. I've had physical healing, emotional healing."

The Bible offers godly wisdom for the small, everyday problems that we all face, as well as hope and healing for our most significant challenges.

See how the power of God's Word transformed life for one veteran and his family, as one simple practice helped him overcome the Post-Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury that had been haunting him ever since his return home from combat.
