We’re speaking to Proof of Heaven author Dr. Eben Alexander tomorrow. Send us your questions!

One morning in November 2008, neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander awoke with an intense headache.

Within hours, he would be admitted to a Lynchburg, Virginia, hospital and diagnosed with a rare form of bacterial meningitis, which was eating away at his brain. While he was in a coma for seven days, his colleagues questioned if he would ever regain consciousness.

I’m in charge of “Wonderful World,” the section of Mysterious Ways magazine that rounds up incredible news items from around the globe.

An Explosion Almost "Rocked" This Church

Watch how a massive boulder stopped just inches short of leveling this building.

Grace Ministries Church in Saugus, Massachusetts, does more than host weekly services.

It also runs a food pantry that serves thousands of underprivileged souls in its community, 12 miles north of Boston.

Maybe this was our high school reunion? I was most excited to catch up with Maryanne Klima, a friend I haven’t spoken with in years.
