It was an unforgettable day for Mickey and Amy Clark on Oct. 11, 2015, when their 2-year-old daughter, Brynn Clark, fell off a stool and hit her head on the floor, what followed next was a direct intervention from God.
I sit overwhelmed by love, encouragement, and excitement through God’s presence and His…
Mickey said, “She was crying as I held her, and all of a sudden she just started throwing up.” They rushed her to the hospital where Dr. Timothy Strait, a neurosurgeon at T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, happened to be there to just check a few emails.
Strait diagnosed Brynn with a traumatic brain injury, an epidural hematoma, and operated on her as he thought she was facing sure death.
“It was a Sunday, so all doctors are off besides the on-call doctor — the hospital is about half shut down,” Amy said. “The fact that Dr. Strait had just happened to come in and check on some things that day right at the time when we needed him most, that was a definite provision from God.”
Dr. Strait told the Clark family that Brynn was unlikely to live, and if she would survive, then she would be in a vegetative state for life. “We were not expecting life threatening by any means,” Amy said. “When he looked at us and said that he wasn’t hopeful at all, we were just speechless.”
They immediately covered their daughter in prayer and asked God with confidence and boldness that He would heal their daughter.
As Brynn was moved from the pediatric intensive care unit to a recovery room, Mickey remembered that an Alabama college football game was on and as Brynn was an Alabama fan mostly just to irritate her father, who was a Tennessee football fan. He blurted out, “Look baby, Alabama just scored,” Mickey said to his daughter, figuring she had no idea what was happening around her.
“Me roll Tide,” the toddler replied. Those three words were the new battle cry of this family as they knew that God was answering their prayers in a miraculous way.
“It told us two things. One, she spoke. Two, she had a memory. She comprehended and had a memory of that,” Amy said. “That was so many answers just in that one little phrase.” She continued, “We love that her little tag line ‘Me roll Tide’ goes along with rolling in the crimson tide of Jesus’ blood.
“He paid a debt and we want people to see that in us, and give glory to God when lives are changed. It’s only through his blood that lives are changed.”
Brynn was moved out of the Chattanooga hospital and sent to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Scottish Rite for continued therapy.

We are so looking forward to sharing God’s Miracle Story in Brynn THIS…
There was a new miracle found in Brynn’s hearing, therapists found — her levels were somehow normal for the first time in her life. Brynn had always worn hearing aids after she was born with cochlear damage that left her with mild hearing loss in her right ear and moderate in the left.
The Clark’s have summed up the miracles that have happened in their lives: “No man of this earth has saved this baby’s life.”
