Review: Still Lolo
Author: Lauren Scruggs
In December 2011, Lauren (“LoLo”) Scruggs, a 23-year-old fashion journalist, suffered a sudden injury that made headlines around the world. She had been on a short flight to look at Christmas lights and, upon exiting the small plane, was hit by the still-moving propeller blade. A frantic 911 call, several major surgeries, and thousands of prayers later: Lauren lived. But she lost her left hand and left eye. And she had to face some incredibly difficult questions: What kind of future will I have? Where is God in all this pain? Will anyone ever be able to love me now? In Still LoLo, Lauren speaks out for the first time since her accident. She and her family reveal what really happened that night, what Lauren’s life is like today, what got them through their journey toward healing, and how they conquered all odds to persevere as a family. It’s a compelling and fiercely beautiful story of faith, determination, and staying true to who you are—no matter what.
A touching and inspiring story of a young woman’s journey from the door of death to the struggle to survive against all odds.
This story spoke to me in so many different ways. It told me that no matter how we look on the outside, scars, missing limbs, etc. that God loves us for what we are on the inside.
If we don’t think of what’s wrong on the outside, God can use us in mighty ways, way beyond we can ever imagine,
I sincerely hope that you decide to read Still Lolo, the story of Lauren Scruggs and her family’s journey.
