for the

We want to encourage you to believe for the Impossible. There are no equations or formulas to receive a miracle. Every miracle that Jesus did in scripture was different. Why? Jesus didn’t want us to rely on a formula or equation. He wanted us to rely on Him. How do we rely on Him? We believe that you can position yourself for a miracle. Which is exactly what we did in John’s situation.

How do you position yourself for the impossible to become possible? The Bible gives us some pretty specific things to do to position our lives to receive a miracle. Our prayer and desire is to be able to share with the world what God taught us through one of the most incredible miracles that we have heard of and seen in modern times. We hope that you will believe that with God any possibility that you are facing will be made possible. God is opening up some incredible doors to be able to share this story with people around the world. We look forward to you experiencing the Impossible in your own life. We want to share with you some of the doors God is opening:

Behind the Story

The Impossible is a revelation of prayers immediate and powerful impact through the true account of a family whose son died and miraculously recovered.

Through the years and the struggles, when life seemed more about hurt and loss than hope and mercy, God was positioning the Smiths for something extraordinary the death and resurrection of their son.

When Joyce Smith’s 14-year-old son John fell through an icy Missouri lake one winter morning, she and her family had seemingly lost everything. At the hospital, John lay lifeless for more than 60 minutes. They asked themselves, How could God do this to us? But Joyce was not ready to give up on her son. She mustered all her faith and strength and cried out to God in a loud voice to save her son.

Immediately, her son’s heart miraculously started beating, again! 

In the coming days, her son would defy every expert, every case history, and every scientific prediction. Sixteen days after falling through the ice and being clinically dead for an hour, John Smith walked out of the hospital under his own power, completely healed.

The Impossible is about a profound truth: prayer really does work. God uses it to remind us that He is always with us, and when we combine it with unshakable faith, nothing is impossible.


BREAKTHROUGH is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. From producer DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven) and adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (Seven Pounds) from Joyce Smith’s own book, BREAKTHROUGH is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle.
