One Woman’s Miraculous Survival in Icy Crash Proves the Power of Prayer is Real

Whether you’re traveling for holiday gatherings or just doing your daily commute, be mindful of these safety steps.

As harsh winter weather hits the nation, roadways become especially dangerous and, in an instant, the usual commute can become a life-threatening nightmare.

One woman in Indianapolis experienced this danger first hand, and it’s her prayer to God and her perfect execution of emergency crash protocol, and the Indianapolis Fire Department, that saved her life that night.

“Oh, I am so thankful,” said Karen Snyder. “It is absolutely a miracle that I survived.

Snyder’s car was one of two that hit a patch of black ice and slid off the road into a frigid pond on Monday night. “It was like I was on a sled and there was nothing I could do,” Snyder explained. “And I’m a really cautious driver.“

As if slipping off the road isn’t terrifying enough, what happened to Snyder next sends most crash victims into total panic: The car began filling with water, and Snyder was filled with indescribable fear.

On that dark, freezing night, Snyder didn’t know if anyone had seen her go off the road. She had no idea if help was coming, or if she was going to drown in her car.

Then, her miracle happened.

“I just started praying and calling out to God,” Snyder said she was listening to a radio program about angels when, surely not by coincidence, she found herself in desperate need of one.

It’s then that Snyder, suddenly filled with God’s peace and guidance, did exactly what Indiana State Police and other nationwide authorities say to do in the event that you find yourself trapped in your vehicle in water: open the window to escape.

“I was so full of fear. But God helped me to stay calm,” Snyder said of her miracle that night. “I just cannot tell you how glad I am to be here.“

While Indiana troopers say you don’t need to swim and can simply climb atop the vehicle’s roof until you are rescued, Snyder swam to the banks of the pond.

Thankfully, Snyder and the others in Monday’s accidents became a cautionary tale rather than an obituary. Their actions and the impeccable response of the Indianapolis Fire Department can serve as a life-saving example to all of us as ice-coated highways increase with the rapidly approaching winter.

Not long ago, four Indiana state troopers demonstrated for citizens how to escape through a sinking car’s windows in just moments and then stay on top of the car and out of the frigid water to await rescue. This lifesaving technique clearly worked for Snyder and the others.

“If you sit here and call 911, you drown in your car,” said one trooper involved in the demonstration.

Instead, police urge motorists to remember these simple steps: seatbelt, windows, children, out. Unbuckle seatbelts, open windows, and kids and adults escape out the window and onto the roof of the car.

If kids are in the car, the oldest and strongest should be helped out of the vehicle and onto the roof first, where they can help hold onto younger children, including babies, before adults can finally begin exiting the vehicle.

Whether you’re traveling for holiday gatherings or just doing your daily commute, be mindful of these safety steps and remember to trust and ask God for your safety each time you get behind the wheel!

12-Year-Old Hailed as Hero After Saving His Friends Life After Disturbing Snapchat Posts

We certainly hope there are many more young people like Gabe out there willing to reach out and intervene when their friends are in trouble

Most of the time, when we think of preteens using Snapchat, we think of all the scary things that can happen online. Bullying, predatory behavior, pornography. It’s a scary cyber world out there. But oddly enough, when one 12-year-old with a good heart and sharp instincts managed to use Snapchat to get his friend the help she needed in the nick of time, by responding quickly right when he noticed something was amiss. Yahoo News reports: Gabe Rongier had been chatting with his friend, who he met on the social media app through a mutual friend, when he noticed a drastic change in the girl’s emotions. According to CBS Pittsburgh, the girl shared a disturbing post that read she “wouldn’t be here tomorrow.” Want daily pop culture news delivered to your inbox? for Yahoo’s newsletter. Gabe, not knowing how to alert the authorities in Texas about the girl possibly being a danger to herself, called the suicide hotline. “I called the suicidal prevention services and it linked me to Officer Chandler [in Texas,]” Gabe told the outlet. “He went to her house, checked up on her. The next day he called me and said, ‘She’s fine. It’s real.’” Gabe’s parents, Fred and Lori, were informed by investigators that they used geotracking to locate the girl and that they arrived in time to intervene with any plans she may have had. “Of course, I’m very proud of him, but I really hope that other young people his age might see the story and also be inspired to also take action to help somebody in need just like Gabe did,” Lori said. Fred added, “When he went to bed, I always kiss him and, I’ve been telling him since that day, ‘You’re my little hero.’” Officer Chandler also sent Gabe, who wants…

Huge Fire Tears Through Church…You Won’t Believe Went Unscathed

Firefighters were absolutely shocked when they finally got inside the razed church.

Truly and utterly, there are some time in which the truth is far stranger than any conjured fiction. Here in America, we seem to love these stories and the mysteries behind them.  We’re obsessed with unsolved true crime, the paranormal, and all things hypothetical…including bizarre notions about the ancient Egyptians galavanting around with extraterrestrials. Is this simply escapism run amok?  Perhaps, but we have been drawn to the impossible and improbable throughout the entirety of human history. That is why the story of a church fire in West Virginia is so compelling. Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview. Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes. Firefighters also remarked that none of the crosses inside the church itself were damaged by fire either, adding to the mystery.
