About the Book

There’s good news and bad news.
The bad news is, well … there is a lot of bad news out there. At least if you’re getting it from TV. Eighty-three percent of Americans believe that television news is the most negative, compared to newspapers, radio, and the Internet (The Wirthlin Report, Feb. ‘04). Author Kris Patrow admits it’s partly her fault. For nearly twenty years she was bringing it into their living rooms as a television news anchor and reporter. Bad news was her job.

The good news is, that’s not the whole story. It never was. And Kris is on a mission to prove it. I Witness News. I Witness Miracles: A Reporter’s Notebook is step one of that mission: from reporting the countless “good news” stories that never made air, to pointing out the good things that happen in everyday life; things that many people have forgotten how to see in this gloom-and-doom world painted by the media.

At a time when television news has many of us closing our doors and eyeing each other with suspicion, I Witness News. I Witness Miracles: A Reporter’s Notebook reports stories that will help people see each other and the world in a new, more compassionate way and see miracles so common, they re-thread the needle connecting us to one another.

About the Author

Ask Kris Patrow to describe herself and she’ll say, “I am a reporter of miracles.” Her many years as an award-winning television news reporter inspired her to begin writing this, the ultimate “newscast,” one filled the many behind-the-scenes miracles that never made air and the many daily miracles we’re all witness to, but have forgotten how to “see.” She hopes this and future “newscasts” will help people remember how to see and experience the many miracles in their own lives.

In 2001, Patrow married her soul mate, fellow news hound and miracle-seer, photographer Dave Ogle. They live near St. Paul, Minnesota with Dave’s son, Ryan; their daughters, Sam and Alex; and one crazy cat named Cookie, each of whom inspires her to keep looking for and writing about miracles in the everyday.
