Joyce's true recount of bringing her son back from the dead with her prayers is gripping from start to finish! It shows that a mother's love is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. The Impossible is a must read and will inspire even the cynic to believe in miracles!―

She retired in 2001 and lives in St. Charles, Missouri, with her husband Brian, with whom she has four sons-Joseph, Tom, Charles, and John-and five grandchildren.

JOHN SMITH was born in Guatemala. At five months-old he was adopted by Brian and Joyce Smith. John lives in St. Charles Missouri where he currently attends a local Christian High School. From a very young age, John’s parents have focused on encouraging John to cultivate a love for the Lord. When John isn’t at school he enjoys spending time with his parents, three brothers, and friends. John plans to finish out high school and then follow after the call God has placed on his life to become a pastor. He plans to stay home and attend a local Christian University. John knows God has a purpose for saving his life and he wants to share the message of God’s love to the world. He is waiting in anticipation and excitement to see what the Lord has for him in the coming years.
