About the Book

Book: Re-Created for Faith

Author: Ashley K. Adams

Genre: Christian Nonfiction: Inspirational

Release date: March 9, 2022 (eBook)

Re-Created for Faith is the story of Carston Ford Adams and how the spiritual and physical world collided for his existence. When all the voices were crying out “death,” his mother believed for more. There had to be a purpose for these obstacles in her son’s life, but what? How could Ashley triumph over what was sealed for his fate? She was about to find out.

Through intense devotion to God’s word and prayer every day, God gave Ashley a fresh faith and supernatural strength to relentlessly pursue saving Carston’s life. This fight was not merely material but spiritual, a battle between forces of life and death. The hospital room became her training ground of righteousness as God taught her how to use the weapons He has given every believer to fight an enemy only interested in our destruction. Refusing to give up, Ashley experienced many breakthroughs-signs, visions, and answers for some of the biggest decisions she would ever have to make. Miracle after miracle pointed directly to the only One who could truly heal, which may have baffled the experts but spurred her on to keep fighting.

Re-Created for Faith shows what is possible when one mother refuses to back down to the enemy and how to anchor these strategies in everyday life to advance in our battles. When we go beyond belief to action, believing God for a victory regardless of the visible, miracles really do occur, and God’s glory is revealed…big time.

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4)


Book Excerpt

His crucifixion, then, does not limit us only to forgiveness and eternal life but encompasses a total deliverance of all darkness that we may experience even on Earth. We are instructed in the Lord’s prayer to pray His will on Earth as it is in Heaven, where there is no hurting, no illnesses.

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these because I’m going to the Father.” (John 14:12)

Knowing these truths made it easy to trust in God’s power but still I sought after more; I was desperate to hear from Him directly, to break through the negativity swirling around me. I asked for God to help me make the right decision under the pressure I would be feeling upon Carston’s arrival. I refused to answer any of the doctors’ questions until we saw Carston for ourselves, saw what God could do. I prayed and prayed for God to break through the statistics and allow Carston to breathe on his own once he was born. In my mind, seeing Carston’s strength to simply take a breath without intervention would be the sign I was looking for—God telling me he is ready for life here. Personally, that would confirm I was to move forward in confidence, doing whatever necessary to improve his health and comfort. In return, I agreed to give God all the glory and praise for all the things He would do and has already done.
