"God has the right to design and perform His own miracles. Who are we to tell Him what they should be?" When Kimberly Boone's mother was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, Kimberly believed that she had received an assignment from God to speak life. Regardless of how dire the situation appeared, no matter what the doctors said, she was to declare God's healing power and remain steadfast in her belief that Vernita Boone would be saved. In the next months, as Kimberly watched her mother's health gradually decline, her faith was rewarded by abundant evidence of God's grace. She not only discovered her assignment for this journey, but she came to know her once-distant father, and she began to understand how both the pleasant and the difficult people are placed into one's life strategically. Through many experiences with the people who surrounded her, Kimberly began to see this entire tapestry as part of God's broader purpose. If It Were a Snake offers hope to those of us who occasionally lose sight of God in the face of day-to-day struggle. Through accounts of her mother's diagnosis, illness, and passage, Kimberly helps us open our eyes to the divine mercies that have been in front of us all along.
