    It must take a tremendous amount of courage and strength of character to endure and overcome the trials written about in this book.

    Jim takes his readers on a journey both terrifying and uplifting. With words of comfort, Jim offers his insight about the world of darkness and overcoming its influence in our daily lives.

    Amazing Read!!!
    What a roller-coaster ride! I would have never guessed what you have gone through in your life. It shows there are higher powers at work in our lives, that we need to reach out to, and they will be there for us. Thanks for having the intestinal fortitude to share this portion of your life so others realize they are not alone.

    Jim has Laid it All on the Line!
    Read Jim’s book about two weeks ago today. Have taken time to collect my thoughts as it is easy to ride a wave of emotion, excitement, frustration or anger.

    The Bible tells humanity there is a Satan and this is one individuals account of how he tried and failed to dupe Jim by his sly, seductive ways that initially seemed wonderful and exciting, yet ends in doom and gloom.

    Jim has laid it all on the line, allowing his successes in life to balance the rightfully anticipated thought that he is just another unbalanced unfortunate. One can certainly doubt, but it cannot be denied.

    Jim turned to a source that many overlook or due to social pressure refuse to considered. Because he was serious about finding a solution he followed the advice and direction it offers and won.

    Can’t imagine it being less than a million seller!
    I was so impressed with your book and the honesty! Can’t imagine it being less than a million seller! and guest spots on Christian programs. In fact, I’d like to hear you on Jim Daley’s show (Dr. Dobson’s and I can’t pull the name of the program right now – maybe Focus on the Family) Whatever comes of it, I’m sure you will have helped many people. I wish you the best now and in the future.

    This book is an amazing account of events. Both Alan and I give thanks for how we are blessed, yet we don’t spend much of our time just searching out the Provider of those blessings. This book has stirred up in us to become better at that; it also brought a stronger conviction to search out what bad things still are attached to us keeping us bound. Thank you, Jim, for sharing the details of your amazing journey; the transparency of your life.

    Courageous – Best Sellers List!
    I am Jim Hnatiuk’s sister, I’m a few years older than him, we were raised together. It is taking a lot of courage on my part to keep reading his book, I find myself often bitterly crying, so I am doing it very slowly and therefore not quite finished.

    It must have been very painful for you to complete such a story, Jim, you truly are a courageous soldier!

    This book will be very helpful to those who have locked up secrets of sexual abuse, hidden crisis, or if you witnessed the horrific death of loved ones. I’m so happy that Jim spells out the keys that will have victims find victory over their torments and show them that they can experience their own miracles.
    I myself have found that amazing victory.

    Best sellers list indeed!

    Interesting & Important – What Courage!
    Thank you, Jim, for a great read with many things to think about. What courage it must have taken to reveal some of the truths of what happened in your life so that we too might learn from your experiences. It was an interesting and important reading experience for me both as someone who knows about the original disaster and someone who is a Christian! Thank you for being so brave!

    Really a good read! Growing up in my early years as a neighbour of Jim and his family I was so interested in the story – a tragic happening in our little village of La Vallee and how the family coped and became the strong young people they are today.God Bless you.

    Compelling! I read this entire book in two sittings because the story of Jim’s life is so intense that you will have to keep reading. Though the torments he experienced were extremely intense the great news of the miracles will show clearly the truth of the hope he has found and that is there for you also!

    Words to Live By. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. This book is a real faith builder for anyone who has obstacles to overcome and for those of us being tormented by some form of spiritual bondage.

    If anyone has a “skeptic” in their lives then this book will encourage you to continue to pray for them and it will enlarge your vision of who God can be in their life.

    My favorite quote ” it wasn’t my pursuit to find solutions to my problems that was key: rather it was my pursuit to find God that became the solution to my problems. ” Words to live by, thank you, Jim.

    Incredibly Captivating
    This book is so well written. I am not an avid reader to say the very least. But this book was incredibly captivating. I found myself feeling exceptionally empathetic towards the writer, the victim. The amount of courage it must have taken to write such unexplainable, true horrific encounters with our creator’s ultimate opponent…amazing! For a child to witness their own mother’s very last living moments, saddens me. To have such horrible things happen to an innocent child, is the mandate of Satan. For that child to have the courage to move forward and push himself to keep going and do good things in his life and to do good for other people, despite the trauma he has faced- that my friend, is the creator’s mandate! This book is a ‘must read.’ Thank you for sharing your life’s torments and your life’s miracles. It is evident that good is supposed to trump the bad….in this seemingly malicious world we live in. Take care. God bless.

    This Book has reached the Highest Award my family can offer, that is, my wife has forbidden me to read it without her :).
    We read it together at night and have read parts of it to our children during family devotion times. An excellent, modern day example of walking out the bible and seeking after God in a raw and earnest way.

    Took my breath away. My Second Review: Torments To Miracles took my breath away. I struggled to finish the book but definitely (not because it was boring, it was anything but) and I was glad Jim encouraged us to continue reading to the end which I managed to do. I hate Satan because he’s tormented me most of my life so by finishing the book I considered it a small victory. But victory none the less.yeah!
    It’s the type of book I want to re-read and I will. Just want to thank you, Jim, for sharing part of your soul with the world in hopes that others will receive healing.

    Conquer the Challenge
    Having completed and now reread this Testimonial a number of times; one continues to find oneself the necessity to challenge his or her own reality and conquer one’s demons.
    Had Mr. Hnatiuk gone home without sharing his life experiences; many would be lost. I challenge all to pick up a copy of Mr. Hnatiuk’s writings; and read it cover to cover. As I am certain there are many who will rejoice in your failure; pick the book up of the shelf, dust it off and start over. Conquer the challenge.
    I have taken several copies of his Testimonials across this fine country of ours. Jim please know that your life’s challenges have benefitted and will continue to benefit many. A homeless man in Newmarket Ontario found peace after gifted with a copy of Torments To Miracles. He too learned to conquered demons and subsequently came to embrace our Father. He has since passed.
    Thank-you Brother Jim. I continue to take your wisdom to move forward in building a much closer relationship with our Father.
    May God Bless You and Your Loved Ones.

    There is a Power in this Book.
    I struggle to provide a review. This book is a “must read” and a “beware” read. It filled me with admiration for the courage of the author. But it also awakened a fear in me that I had never experienced before. And I have not yet sorted out why. I’m an avid reader and many books have moved me to anger, joy, sadness and loathing. But never has a book given my spirit such a physical jolt. There is a power in this book. The tale reveals the power of both light and darkness. And the darkness has scared me.

    Highly recommend reading this book!
    The author lays everything on the line when sharing his deep inner struggles due to a tragic childhood experience and from that experience, he takes you on his life changing journey to freedom and success. I would highly recommend reading this book. Thanks Jim for sharing your story.

    Your Message is Clear: Just read your book “Know This … From Torments to Miracles”. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so transparent and honest as you related to us your journey of faith with Jesus. It is so encouraging to read of your assessment of your life and your (our) absolute need for Jesus Christ in our lives. As Jesus said “Without me you can do nothing”. This was true then and is still true today! Every human being receives every breath from him, everything is held together by him! And our freedom today and our eternal life rest in him also. So often, we as the church, tend to forget who really is the source of life and revert, as the Israelites did, to our own form of religion but deny the very life giver!
    Jim your message is clear and I for one, am very glad you wrote this book, as this is a message all of us need to hear. We cannot go wrong when we follow our Lord Jesus Christ with all of our hearts. You have made us aware again, of the need to have him preside over every area of our lives, for only he is the giver of life. John 15.
    Again, thank you, Brother Jim.
    In Christ,
    Pastor Ken Penner

    A God inspired book: I first met Jim in 1977 when he joined the crew of the HMCS Huron. We have maintained our friendship for 40 some years. Jim was a man I grew to highly respect and admire. My friend Jim a leader in business, politics, the church and a visionary all by the grace of God. He had shared glimpses of his personal life with me. I knew and sensed that he had a battle going on inside of him that I did not understand. I believed him and felt not to share it with anyone else. God is great all the time in every way. When Jim became saved my prayer was answered. His book is an amazing account of his life, completely honest, truthful, and thought provoking to say the least. A great testimony to the life changing power of our Lord, that will inspire those who know our Lord to a closer relationship and an increase in faith. It will challenge and call the hearts of those who do not know our Lord yet. I personally believe this is a God inspired book. A must read for those who are seeking answers and solutions to the very deep problem of life, that they are struggling with or held captive by. If you do not know our Lord follow the good advice Jim gives about finding the Lord. Be challenged, pray and obey.
    If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. (their hearts, souls, spirits, minds, and captivities) (emphasis mine) 2 Chron 7:14-15
    Jim, may God continue to bless all your endeavors royally.

    I Was Not Expecting to Be Touched So Deeply: This was the time I needed to read this book. When Jim first told me about his book I was not expecting to be touched so deeply. Thank you, Jim, for your love and being so open to your story
