About this book-
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.
I remember hearing about this on the news when it happened. I remember thinking how sad and tragic, and extremely bizarre this accident was. What I didn’t know at the time was how Lauren and her family would cling to their faith in God, and use this tragedy to change their lives for the better, and be able to reach out and minister and encourage others to find faith in times of trouble. I enjoyed how this book gave the perspective of not only Lolo but her other family members as well. They each have relied on God to pull them through such a tough time, not only then but in other areas of their lives. Without giving too much away in this story, her parents have an amazing testimony themselves that they are able to share.
The book also includes several photos of Lauren both before the accident and after her recovery, and she is still as beautiful as ever.
While the book itself is a bit choppy at times, it didn’t take away from the quality or depth of the testimony within.
For an encouraging read that will challenge your own faith, I definitely recommend reading Still Lolo.
