“Fallen From a Tree”: an awe-inspiring account that recounts the journey to recovery and healing of a person who suffered physical, mental, and emotional pain from a life-changing incident. “Fallen From a Tree” is the creation of published author Joseph Drda, a teacher’s aide in a life skills classroom. He grew to appreciate children and adults with illnesses and handicaps with his experiences.

Drda shares, “I chose my title Fallen from a Tree because I fell from my tree stand, and so to speak, Adam and Eve also fell from a tree in the Garden of Eden.

“I enjoy archery hunting and had no idea what was about to happen. My tree stand always was safe. But suddenly, the tree stand broke, and I was falling from fifteen feet high. My body fell helplessly to the ground. I landed on my shoulder blades. I had the wind knocked out of me. I reached for my phone. The battery was low and only had 5 percent battery life. I called my friends for help.

“At the hospital, I was given a CAT scan and X-rays. I had five broken ribs. Two days later, I started coughing and passed out while my brother Michael went for a nurse for help. I was dying.

“This book is about my near-death experience and my journey to visit God and heaven. I want to be able to share my experience and pain with people who have illnesses and doubts about God and heaven. God and heaven are real!

“I want to be encouraging to all people—those who are dying and those who have illnesses. It was a struggle for me to rehabilitate. I did not know if I would be able to walk, talk, eat, and drink and had to learn how to do these things all over again. I developed an understanding for handicapped people and those who have trouble communicating thoughts and language.
“Rehabilitation was very important to my recovery process. I worked very hard, wanting to succeed and give strength to my body and mind. I ended up having a total of eleven broken ribs. It was very painful to move.

“God wrote this book for us to share. He is the author of the book, and He wanted me to be coauthor. I fell from my tree stand and visited God. It was an amazing journey!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Joseph Drda’s new book is a powerful testimony of the magnificent presence of God in a life that faced a great battle.

The author retells his own story of pain and the grace that healed him from his fall.
