Book Review: Still Lolo by Lauren Scruggs

I just love this top picture! It shows just how strong Lauren is and that she is a warrior in Life and in Christ. This picture is one of the many that are featured in the book Still Lolo: A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family's Journey of Hope by Lauren Scruggs and her family. In fact, all of these pictures are ones I received from the publisher but are int he book.

The perspective of the book is written from Lauren and each member of her family and they provide a chronological and heartfelt journey of the last year that tested their faith and strength as they clung on to hope that Lauren would pull through and rise out a strong er woman. Each chapter treats you to the insight from one family member and they remember what was happening at that particular time of her accident, survival and recovery.

The story begins when her parents are first married and the spiritual journey they needed to make during those early years of marriage that created the foundation of strength and hope from God that has helped through the toughest time in their lives.

It is really hard to imagine the amount of anguish the family felt and I am sure the story only gives us glimpses, which is a testament to their strength and hope.

As it has only been a year since the accident, I am very interested in following
Lauren's journey through life and luckily enough I will be able to do that through through her online magazine Lolo Magazine.

Here is the First Chapter of the book for you to preview.
