I read about this book that recently came out.

This is Lauren Scruggs’ story.  The book is called STILL LOLO: A spinning propeller, a horrific accident, and a family’s journey of hope

While exiting a small plane, Lauren was hit by the plane’s propeller.

Lauren lived, but lost her left hand and left eye. Since then she has been fighting her way back.

Lauren truly is lucky to be alive. But how do you live after an accident like that; after a skull fracture from a plane propeller and losing a limb. It’s the same kind of spirit in soldiers who come home with life altering wounds. It’s the same spirit that drives Nick Vujicic, Kyle Maynard, and anyone who has suffered a life altering setback.

The questions are similar for anyone going through this: What kind of future will I have? Where is God in all this pain? Will anyone be able to love me now?

Stories like Lauren’s inspire us to live a life without fear—to overcome whatever challenges threaten to limit us, and to discover a new dream.

“(Lauren’s) attitude, joy, and faith are daily reminders of what I aspire to be.” —Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys quarterback
