Still LOLO - A story of Forgiveness, Reconciliation and Strength

Still LOLO

Still Lolo: A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family's Journey of Hope is the title of my latest read!  By the title one could only assume that it will be a woe is me but God is good book.  To my pleasant surprise it is very much the opposite!  The story is a compilation of a family’s journey through a life changing experience of Lauren Scruggs accident.  The book is written where the members of the family are able to give their point of view of the events that bring them to where they are today, stronger and still LOLO. In addition to focusing on the events of the accident that changed the lives of Lauren Scruggs and her family; It also tells a story of a family that was once broken but reunited by the renewing of their faith and a understanding of forgiveness and God’s everlasting grace. 

The Scruggs Family

Even though the books main focus is the accident, what I felt the most meaningful message in this book is a story of reconciliation forgiveness and answered prayers.  It mirrors a real life fairytale that has a happy ending after a series of climatic events.  I would recommend this book to anyone that feels discouraged in the face of tragedy, lost or just life.  I have learned in this life that no matter what you are going through in life there is always a great cloud of witnesses that can demonstrate the goodness of the Lord through their journey.  The Scruggs family is included in that great cloud.  What he does for one he will do for another.
