Author and inspirational speaker, Angela Alexander has ‘turned pain into power and grief into peace’ with her incredible, heartbreaking story in Miracles In Action. In 2000, Angela was in Japan on military duty when her family was involved in a fatal car crash that killed her two eight-year-old sons. Interestingly, both boys had independently written good-bye letters. God revealed to Angela that the letters should be shared and the autobiographical book, Miracles in Action was born. Angela's book, which motivational speaker Les Brown calls "a must read," is being turned into a documentary. Angela is currently in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign to fund the project.
