Another health and healing book! So why is Ordinary Woman, Extraordinary God different from all the other books? Alison has lived through many traumatic experiences, yet emerges triumphant and well, in every phase of her life: emotionally, physically, and spiritually. This book is not a step-by-step “how to be well” book, but the inspirational story of a woman facing pain and trauma and her journey—supported by written evidence of medical physicians—from death to life.

“If there was ever a person who could understandably be angry, bitter, and have a good reason to give up on life, Alison McLeod is that woman. Facing sexual molestation at an early age, living with a mother suffering the devastating effects of chemotherapy, and watching her four-year-old son die of inoperable brain cancer; these reasons would be more than enough for Alison to become hardened and throw in the towel. Add to that an unfaithful spouse, divorce, and then her own life-threatening battle with cancer, and you have a toxic recipe for tremendous suffering. And yet, because of the grace and love of God, Alison has emerged strong, healed, and is completely well, emotionally and physically. She tells her story in her soft, gentle manner because that is exactly who she is—quietly and uncomplainingly sharing her pain without requesting pity. Her inspirational strength and unshakeable faith and trust in God are rock solid and give hope to all those battling hopeless causes! Readers who have experienced the loss of a child, divorce, sickness, sexual molestation, or dysfunctional relationships will all find help and comfort in the pages of this book.” —Jan Levin

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2018

    The emphasis of this book is on Alison's relationship with her precious Saviour, the One she clung to each time the Evil One tried to crush her. Her life is one of faith, relying on God for answers to all her questions, and even though the journey has never been easy, she tells of how He provides for all her needs. Alison tells her story in such a beautiful, flowing manner, which makes for easy reading for all. My cheeks were often wet, but as I proceeded through the pages of Alison's book, the more excited I became about also experiencing that peace, letting go of the reins and letting God take full control of my troubled life. This is a book you will want to tell your friends about!
