Struck by polio at age six, Jack H. Emmott began learning the difficult spiritual lessons embodied in paralysis, shivering loneliness, and dark despair. Fortunately, Jack had help― people of all ages he calls his “Bending Angels,” those who have spread their wings of love and inspiration to walk the journey of faith as the devastated little boy became one of Houston’s celebrated attorneys, a loyal husband, and a devoted dad. Each chapter of this book will relate the story of a Bending Angel―from Brownie, the pup, to Mr. Ochoa, the baseball coach who understood how much of a heart it takes to win and how much of a soul it takes to lose your most precious dream. This book will inspire and uplift you as Jack H. Emmott, a life-long Christian, shares his spiritual wisdom and lessons learned.

Bending Angels was not the book that I was expecting to read; it was so much more! You feel the emotion of Jack's story of how at age 6, he had to deal with polio and all the heartaches that came with that. As Jack goes through life and encounters many obstacles, you could see how each one of his "Bending Angels" was a blessing who showed him the way in some of his most troubling times.

I'm truly glad I was able to get the chance to read this book even though I'm not usually much for books that have a heavy religious theme. But Bending Angels came at the most perfect time in my life. I have been dealing with some pretty hard stuff lately, and while reading this book, it made me realize even more that everything happens for a reason. I truly believe that people -- or items like this book -- are placed in your life for a reason. Though at first you may not like it or understand it, the outcome is well worth the journey knowing that a greater power is watching over you!

Thank You to Jack H. Emmott for sharing your remarkable story and for reminding us that we all have angels watching over us!

Author Jack H. Emmott contracted polio at the age of six.  Before polio, he knelt at his bedside with his mother Lucile and said evening prayers.  With paralysis, Jack could no longer kneel.  But he could still pray to God for guidance, comfort and healing.  The grace and love of God transformed all the bad from polio and paralysis into good.  Jack is a life-long Christian and successful family lawyer in Houston, Texas.  He is married to his wife of over forty years, Dorothy, who works alongside him in his calling.  Jack is father to two children and grandfather to three grandchildren.

Jack is the author of Bending Angels: Living Messengers of God’s Love by (Carpenter's Son Publishing, 2016) a memoir of the living angels that touched his life.  He wrote Prayerful Passages:  Asking God’s Help in Reconciliation, Separation and Divorce (Outskirts Press, 2016) to help couples in struggling marriages ask God’s help through prayer for the same guidance, comfort and healing he has received from our Almighty Father for over sixty years following polio.
