‘Still Lolo’ Book Review November 29, 2012

images (25)Title: Still Lolo: A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family’s Journey of Hope

Author: Lauren Scruggs and the Scruggs Family, with Marcus Brotherton

Date I Finished Reading: November 29,2012

My Rating: 5/5

Two steps. It doesn’t sound like much, compared to how many steps we take throughout the day. But on December 3,2012 two steps changed Lauren Scruggs’ life forever. It was that night that Lauren stepped out of a friend’s plane, and into a spinning propeller. It was this accident that caused Lauren to lose her hand, her eye, and nearly her life.

In the book Still Lolo,  we see the story of Lauren and her family’s trial and faith throughout her injury and recovery. As you can imagine, the whole ordeal was both physically and emotionally draining. Yet, throughout it all, their faith and confidence in the Lord held them together and gave them hope.

As you can imagine, for Lauren, life after the accident required many adjustments. As a fashion journalist, you can imagine Lauren was very conscious of her appearance. However, the Lord brought Lauren to the realization that she was still beautiful, that she could still be loved, and that he still had a plan for her. This is a lesson that all young ladies need to learn at one point or another.

I was quickly drawn into this book. I found it to be inspiring, encouraging and eye-opening. I highly recommend this book to you!! You can actually read the first chapter by following this link:
