Happy New Year! May 2009 bring you everything you desire!

I am very excited by 2009, as we have a lot of plans for Expect a Miracle website this year.
I hope that you will enjoy some of the new ideas I look forward to starting in 2009.

Reviews From Amazon "You Can Expect a Miracle" Book

By Edwin C. Burton "Ed (Australia)
Read the book front to back in one sitting. Couldn't put it down! Explains how YOU can "expect a miracle" and how Dr Hinwood and "friends" have had these miracles (big and small). Get the book, read it and expect your own miracles!

1Transformational book...great stuff!, November 4, 2008

By Dr. Nicholas Armitage
It has been said that our attitude determines our altitude. Thank you Dr. Hinwood for this transformational book which reaffirms the necessity to direct our thoughts towards positive expection for maximum success and fulfillment (in every area). Great stuff!

1 This book is a gem!, November 4, 2008

By Dr. Ely Lazar (Shenton Park, West Australia Australia)
What makes this book so great is that all the people that wrote of their experiences are co-creators of this book. While Dr John Hinwood created the idea and contributes with a number of stories, it is the varied experiences shared by all the contributors that makes this book so inspiring.

The book is broken up into themes ranging from Miracles of Attitude to Miracles of Family, to Miracles of Health. Most of the stories have inspiring quotes at the end ranging from people such as Benjamin Franklin to Arthur Ashe to Leonardo Da Vinci.

Some the stories are humorous such as"The Fickle Finger of Fate" by Dr John Hinwood, about his experience with an immigration office at LAX. Others are deadly serious such as "Space Invaders" by Dr Keith Livingstone, about his battle with a brain tumor. In fact, this I found most inspiring.

The theme that comes through and through is that Miracles are Normal and occur all around us if we take the time to look for them and appreciate them.

1The Hinwoods live an outpoured life, October 29, 2008

By Dr. Keith H. Charlton (Brisbane, Queensland)
We are so often shaped by the people we meet and the books we read. Sometimes we meet the people via their books. In the decades I have known Drs John and Judy Hinwood, they have always lived selflessly (sometimes to their cost). When faced with adversity themselves or in others, their relentless generosity of spirit shines through, and now this little tome of encouragement and inspiration will carry their message to so many who don't get to meet them face to face, but will benefit from getting to know them and the miracles message.

1 Little ripper!, September 20, 2008

By Joanne L. Livingstone -
This is a more than slightly biased review as I am the wife of one of the contributors and have known the author for years! This is an "easy read" before bed, and the stories are all true. In a nutshell- Dr John's principle of concentrating only on ultimate expectation has helped me and my husband through an extremely difficult year where he has thrived/survived a "terminal" brain tumour and 2 neuro-surgeries while writing and publishing his own book on training for middle distance. In this time we have gone from being financially crippled, helpless and hopeless at the time of collapse to now being financially independent and comfortably well off, with Keith's book being released next month on Amazon (Healthy Intelligent Training). This financial miracle required Keith to be written off for life insurance purposes, but hey, he's still here and kicking and expecting to continue, God willing. We just did as the book said and plastered John's unique "Expect a Miracle" cards (they're in the book) everywhere around the house, and bothered God an awful lot! (We're supposed to you know!). An easy read, and like anything, if you JUST DO IT your life might change forever!

1Pure Inspiration, September 20, 2008

By Stephanie Le Coz (Australia)
