Lauren Scruggs: A Story of Faith, Hope, and Strength

Still Lolo:  A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family’s Journey of Hope
By:  Lauren Scruggs

Publisher:  Tyndale House Publishers
ISBN #:  1414376693
Pages:  256

In December 2011, a story hit the news media about a young woman, who was seriously injured in a plane propeller accident.  This book tells Lauren’s story not only from her perspective but also from her parents and her sister, Brittany.  I found myself engrossed in Lauren’s story from page one.  Lauren tells her story with honesty and courage as if she is only speaking with you.  Lauren not only speaks about the accident and her feelings but she also gives us a look into her past and shares her belief and faith in the Lord that has given her the strength and perseverance to make it through various events in her life.    

Other chapters within the book are also written from the perspective of her sister, Brittany and her parents, Cheryl and Jeff Scruggs.  Lauren’s parents and sister write of their own worries and struggles with the accident and Lauren’s recovery, however what really shines through is this family’s faith and strength in the midst of this life-changing event. 

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book. It is well-written featuring such honesty and really showcases a message of hope and encouragement that everyone needs to read.  Lauren’s story is truly inspiring and is such a powerful illustration about how God uses us to positively impact others.
