Breakthrough is now a major motion picture starring Chrissy Metz, Topher Grace, Mike Colter, and Josh Lucas. Discover the amazing true story that inspired the movie.
Joyce Smith felt like she lost everything when her fourteen-year-old son John fell through an icy Missouri lake one winter morning. John was lifeless for over an hour in the hospital. Joyce wasn't ready to give up on her son. All her strength and faith blended into one loud voice, crying out to God to save her son.
In one miraculous moment, John's heart started beating again.
In the days that followed, John defied every expert, every case history, and every scientific prediction. Sixteen days after falling through the ice and being clinically dead for an hour, he walked out of the hospital completely healed.
Breakthrough is about the proof that prayer really does work. This encouraging true story is a reminder to all of us that God is always with us. When we combine God's presence, unshakeable faith, and prayer, nothing is impossible.
