Patrick Clark Sims, author, media personality, and pastor, believes that every life is a book. Every life is a story that carries a message and a lesson from the creator. Throughout her life, she has witnessed many stories, including one that changed her family's life forever. Although it was not her intention to write a book, the miracles that she has experienced during this time has compelled her to write one.
Sims shares her story in a book called Eyewitnessed: Believe What You Cannot See. Through a broader perspective, Eyewitnessed is a story about what Sims believes to be the worst environmental disaster in the history of the United States. This took place in North Carolina from 1957 to 1987. An estimated one million families were reported to have been exposed to unregulated chemicals in their drinking water systems. Sims has kept a journal and other documents regarding this time, and in her book, she tells the story to inform and educate others.
Moving closer, Eyewitnessed is a genuinely personal story to Sims and her family. It tells the story of an African-American family as they wade through the turbulent waters of trials, tribulations, and disease as a result of Camp Lejeune's water contamination. Sims' husband, a Marine who has served for thirty years, has contacted several catastrophic illnesses, including renal failure, congestive heart failure, and Non-Hodgkin'd Lymphoma. Lifted from her personal journal, Sims shares the very personal and honest account of being by her husband's side as he fought for his life. Through this book, she also bears testimony to the many miracles that God has provided for their family.
Through all of the disasters and trials, God has revealed himself to Sims along with his infinite grace and wisdom. Eyewitnessed: Believe What You Cannot See is Sims' personal account of the trying yet miraculous events that God has held her family through.
"Patrick Sims is the kind of woman you want on your side when you need the courage to step up for something you believe in that is intrinsically linked to your faith. She inspires me with her courage, dedication and heart-centeredness. Thank you for this courageous story."
