The number 22 haunted Ellen Gillette, who lost her son one August 22—until a session with her Bible revealed chapters and verses of that number that brought her great comfort.
For years, the number 22 haunted Ellen Gillette, whose youngest son, Adam, died on August 22, 2000. Whenever Ellen saw the number 22—whether it was on a restaurant bill or a sports jersey—she relived her son’s fatal car accident.
Until one evening, Ellen opened her Bible and something incredible happened. The words blurred and the numbers came into sharp focus. Chapter 22, verse 22… there were 22s everywhere. This time, the number didn’t scare Ellen. As she flipped through 22 after 22, verse after comforting verse eased her pain—a story Ellen told in the February/March 2017 issue of Mysterious Ways magazine.
