Miriam’s Miracle: A Medical Memoir Wrapped in a Love Story

Published February 15, 2024

by Mark and Miriam Johnson

Out of tragedy comes a miracle…Miriam’s miracle!

This medical memoir is wrapped in a love story like no other, demonstrating God’s love throughout the most desperate moments and a husband’s unwavering and decades-long devotion to his wife.

Imagine experiencing a work-related injury that spirals into decades of life-altering pain and suffering. Imagine fighting a system that seems stacked against you. And imagine a husband-turned-advocate who documents the ordeal, sharing the raw details of an uphill climb through the halls of medicine and courtrooms.

As a wife, mother, and employee, Miriam Johnson’s nightmare began with a slip-and-fall accident that set her husband and nine-year-old son on a trajectory of caregiving that they never could have imagined. The Johnson family’s story is love personified — a transcendent and stubborn love made possible by faith, courage, and God’s ultimate timing.

Miraculously, Miriam recovered well after her son was grown and had a family of his own. Her husband, Mark, lovingly recounts the “then” and “now” and shares his dear wife’s victory over impossible odds.
