My daughter Chloe is healed by Jesus!
Jesus heals! All glory be to God!
"Faith is a law." This was the first of many
messages that God gave me during this trial that rocked the very foundation of my life and brought me into a relationship
with God that has completely changed me forever--in ways too beautiful and incredible to completely describe.
Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever." (Hebrews 13:8). Jesus healed in biblical times and he still heals today.
I would like to share this healing testimony with you on behalf of my daughter, Chloe. She is healed by Jesus of a disease
for which there is no medical cure. She was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA type 1). We received the medical diagnosis
on May 17, 2006, the day after she turned six months old. The weeks leading up to that point were filled with fear, uncertainty
and tear-filled pleadings to Jesus. This trial came upon our family with the speed and intensity of a hurricane. The timeline
is staggering. However, Jesus is the "Author and Perfecter of our faith" and He is keeping His hand upon me and
my family and is guiding us through to the victory that is ours! The battle has already been fought and won by Jesus, but
we still have to walk out our parts on this journey in faith and stand on His Word.
"Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) I have been led by the Holy Spirit to live each
day of this journey wearing my faith as a banner for the whole world to see. As of this day, in the natural, my six-year-old
daughter is still unable to sit up unassited, hold her head steady, stand or walk. She is unable to receive food by mouth
and is fed via GJ feeding tube in her stomach. At night, she sleeps with a BiPapp machine to help support her lungs
and our family room has been transformed into a mini pediatric intensive care unit. However, it does not matter what I see
in the natural. I am walking by faith and not by sight. My husband, son and I have captured God's truth so deeply in our hearts
that we know without any doubt that Chloe is healed and that she will soon be doing all the things other little girls her
age are able to do. I thank God that He has reinforced this truth over and over again with words from heaven, dreams and visions.
We have been diligent in keeping our eyes on Jesus no matter what things look like in the natural. We have prayed to hear
God's voice clearly and have tried to always be completely obedient to everything He has told us. This journey has been the
hardest thing our family has ever experienced--from the horrible medical diagnosis and prognosis to hospitalizations to job
loss--but just as His Word promises, God's grace has been sufficient. My prayer is that many will see and hear about our family's
faith journey and choose to give their lives to God, stand on His Word and His faithful promises and experience victory in
Before I go into all the details of how this trial began and how God led us through it, I must tell you
what I know about the Lord. God is merciful and kind, loving and forgiving, patient and faithful. He keeps His promises. He
reveals Himself to those who seek Him with all their hearts, those with a desire to know Him personally, those who surrender
to Him completely and want His perfect will for their lives. I am so grateful and thankful and humbled by His love and mercy.
I think about my life before this trial and my life during this trial. I realize that a total metamorphosis has occurred.
I have been transformed by a renewed mind, moved from a self-centered life to a God-centered life and have more peace and
joy than I ever thought possible.
Through this journey in faith, God has not only redeemed my daughter's life from
destruction, but He has given me an abundant life here on earth--a life where I can enjoy and cherish my three beautiful children
and my husband, free from the curse of the disease that was once upon our lives. As if this wasn't enough, God has doubly
blessed us with His promise of an abundant eternal life after this life is over!! All glory be to God!! Sometimes I just sit
and ponder on the magnificence of God's plan for my life, but even then, I know I'm just scratching at the surface. I realize
that my human mind can't even truly begin to comprehend the scope and depth of God's love for our family and His plans for
our future. I can only give thanks and praise and love to the One who sees the desires of my heart and hears and answers my

2010 UPDATE CHLOE'S A BIG SISTER NOW!"Children are a gift from the
Lord; they are a reward from Him." Ps. 127:3
God blessed our family
with Baby #3! On April 19, 2010 our beautiful, healthy, baby boy Isaac Aaaron Korson was born weighing in at 7 lbs. 9.5 oz.
He is truly a gift from God. Chloe was the first to know that I was pregnant and she also knew that it was her baby brother
in there! When she met Isaac for the first time she said "I'm gonna love that baby!"
2009 END-OF-THE-YEAR UPDATE
"Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out
of them all." Ps. 34:19
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be
mature and complete, not lacking anything." James 1: 2-4.
2009 was a year of trials and testing for
Chloe and our family. Chloe triumphantly overcome many afflictions last year: Her Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World in February
was interrupted by a severe bout of pneumonia; pancreatitis landed her in the hospital for 21 days in March where she had
to be put on a ventilator; the end of September brought yet another 12-day hospitalization with pneumonia; the dreaded H1N1
virus at the end of October caused a 20-day hospitalization with pneumonia and Chloe on a ventilator (Chloe celebrated her
fourth birthday on November 16 in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Sparrow Hospital and she also had a surgery to place
a feeding tube in her tummy instead of the NJ tube that she had in her nose for the past several years.); and, three days
before Christmas, Chloe was rushed via ambulance to the ER with high CO2 levels because a mucus plug had shut down her lungs.
God gave us a miraculous turnaround in each of these horrific situations.
One undeniable constant through
each of these trials has been the presence of our faithful, Almighty God. Through these trials He has manifested new strength
and endurance in Chloe (as well as each of us). Being almost five months pregnant with baby #3, God sheltered me from the
H1N1 virus so that I could be right where I needed to be: by my daughter's bedside speaking the Word of God over her. My constant
prayer/conversation with God through it all has simply been: "Lord, I don't understand, but I trust you. Just show me
what to do." God gave me a blueprint that has not changed: "Give thanks and praise, that's my will for you."
As I speak His Word over Chloe, I remind her of His promises and bring to remembrance the faithfulness of God in
God's grace sustains us as He perfects that which concerns us. What would we do without the
hope we've found in Jesus? Our prayer is that those who are blessed to see the faithfulness of God in Chloe's life and trials
will know that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD. I am thankful every day for what God has done and continues to do in our
lives. All our faith, hope and trust remains in Him who is bigger than our problems and situations. Thank you Jesus! All glory
THE FULL MANIFESTATION OF CHLOE'S HEALING
The rest of this section is reserved for how
God manifests Chloe's miracle. Chloe's healing is a done deal. It was done over 2000 years ago on the cross at Calvary. I
know that I know that I know she is healed. I don't know exactly how or when God will manifest her healing completely in the
natural. Each day is lived with excitement and anticipation in the midst of storms. No matter how hard or bad the day has
been, one truth remains: CHLOE IS HEALED!
There is so much information I want to share with you so I will add
updates to this site as time permits. The step-by-step details of how this journey began are listed under the "Faith
Journey" tab on this site. I am looking forward to sharing exactly
how God delivered on His promise!
God bless you, Nichole, Jason, Noah, Chloe & Isaac

November 2007 Chloe Update: Look who's 2!
16, 2007 was among the many blessings and promises of God fulfilled: Chloe turned two years old. Just over a year ago, Chloe
was facing her first hospitalization and I was being told that by the way things were looking, she most likely would never
be coming home with me again. From the day of Chloe's SMA Type 1 medical diagnosis back in May of last year and through every
storm that has followed, I have never stopped trusting God and believing His report: "By the stripes of Jesus, Chloe is healed."
All glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than
we might ask or think." (Ephesians 3:20). That scripture has literally come alive in my life and in Chloe's life. God has
given her the physical strength and will to survive and thrive when it looked like she was just a few steps from Heaven's
door. And, His grace and mercy has given me the strength and courage to continue to walk by faith and not by sight when--at
certain points--everything in the natural looked as if we'd reached the end of our journey. It was the power of God that brought
me to my daughter's bedside speaking words of life--the living Word of God--over my daughter the horrible day in the hospital
when she was completely blue and unable to take a breath. And it was that same power of God that kept my feet on solid ground
in the days that followed when I was being advised to just "let her go."
Those who know me well know that I never
make a move that God has not directed me to make. I wait--despite the pressures around me in the natural--to hear the still,
quiet voice of God speaking wisdom and direction into my life. I praise God for perfecting the fruit of patience within me.
Waiting is the hardest thing we as humans have to do. But if you reverence the Lord and need an answer that only He can provide,
I encourage you to wait on Him and, expect to be blessed.
We celebrated Chloe's birthday all day long. We praised
and worshiped God and gave thanks for all the things He's done, is doing and will do. And, as a Mom, I quietly reflected on
the day when my life changed radically and forever two years ago when my precious baby girl was born. I've told many the testimony
of how I felt the power of God all over Chloe when I reached out to touch her for the first time after she was born. I had
no understanding at that time of the incredibly special gift God had given me and how the entire course of my life would be
completely altered. "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to
give you a future and a hope." (Jeremiah 29:11) Praise God for His Word!!!
The beautiful thing now is that Chloe is
able to speak the Word of God too! She prays every night when we have Holy Communion as a family. She has memorized portions
of Psalm 91 so that she speaks the Word right along with me. She even laid hands on her brother (after he fell and hurt his
hand) declaring, "Noah, you're healed!" I stood there in amazement as I watched my baby girl pray for my baby boy and then
Noah RELEASED HIS FAITH to RECEIVE and jumped up saying "Mama, God did it! He healed my hand! All the pain is gone! Thank
you Jesus!" If we could all have faith like a child!
I hope you will be blessed by this message and by the updated
photo (I'll try to add photo updates as often as possible).
Love and blessings,
Nichole, Jason, Noah and Chloe

Prior to Chloe's medical diagnosis, I had never heard of SMA. While we don't deny the reality of Chloe's medical
diagnosis we know that God has the final Word on her prognosis. We choose to focus on Jesus--the Great Physician, Chloe's
Healer and exalt His Word above the word of man. We have called on God's divine wisdom through many medical interventions
and have taken whatever steps necessary to provide medical care for our daughter in the natural. While there are ongoing research
studies, there is no medical cure for SMA. Only God can get the glory for doing what is impossible for man.
decision to truly trust God and believe His Word must be made in your HEART not your HEAD. Satan has a way of trying to deceive
us through negative thoughts. That's why it's important to take every thought into captivity and bring it into submission
to the Word of God. I am guided on this journey by what God has written on my heart and revealed through His Word about my
daughter. I cling to His truth and test everything against the Word of God. I don't accept ANYTHING in my spirit that does
not line up with His Word. I "walk by faith and not by sight." May you be blessed as you follow our family's journey.
