Welcome to my website!
I'm Leigh Watson, and I hope you enjoy my book, 9 Miracles: One Mother's Amazing Journey Home after Seeing Her Son off to War. This is the true story about the extraordinary events and incredible people I encountered on MY way, to and from, seeing my son off to Iraq. It's not my son's story - it's MY story. :)
#1 happened on my way TO Florida, the other 8 things/people happened on my way HOME. Miracle #9 in particular will KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF - - but you CAN'T look ahead, you HAVE to read it in order WITH the Conclusion, to get the full context!
And yes, that is really MY hands hugging MY son! :) In fact, see my mesquite thorn scar at the base of my hand? At the time, I hated that it scarred so, but now at book signings, I can point to it and say, "See? There's my scar!" HA!
This isn't a military book, nor a Mama's book. This inspirational book is about hope and encouragement and the realization that God cares and we are never alone when we are going through our darkest hour. HE will provide the strength you need when you have none left on your own.
As the Chapters unfold, together with the Conclusion, the life lessons can be applied to ANY age and ANY life's difficult circumstances. How God's grace is overflowing and unlimited.
It never ceases to amaze me how this book touches people's hearts in so many different ways. Some have written me to say how it's changed their life and now they see things from a different perspective. Others have written to say they feel this book was written "JUST FOR THEM" because of what they were going through at that time in their own life. Someone else - perhaps Miracle #1 especially touched their heart, another - #9, or yet even someone else - #3 - it's NEVER the same for every single person. It's always exciting to see how 9 Miracles affects people differently and which Miracle resonated most with them. God is so good!
Through the Holy Spirit, it touches each person where and how they need to be touched. It's like filling a bottle with rocks - it looks full but then you add water and it goes into all the little nooks and crannies and fills it. The Holy Spirit searches out the little nooks and crannies in our hearts and allows 9 Miracles to speak to you how and when you need it. It is ALL to God's glory and none that of myself. This is God's book and it is God's message. Praise the Lord!
I hope you enjoy it. It was written with love. :)
