Halo Found Hope
Six days turned into eight weeks. She awoke to discover that she was not the same. She saw two of everything, couldn’t feel half of her face, couldn’t hear from one ear, and could not speak. She couldn’t even tell anyone that she felt hopeless... or could she?
Halo Found Hope is the story of a beautiful, busy wife, and mother of three whose life changes instantly with the diagnosis of a rare brain tumor. An exceptional ENT, a brilliant neurosurgeon and a dedicated medical team tackle the tumor, setting off a series of unbelievable miracles.
Helo’s story is not one of survival, or of salvaging a life through a broken body. It is not about endurance through pain, but victory because of it. While the family heard her silence, God heard her prayer. Helo’s story is simply this: Wherever you are and whatever you are going through, God is right there. He doesn’t need to be recognized by you, to be there for you. He can replace fear with courage and discouragement with determination, if you let Him. Helo did, and that is how she found hope.
Helo was once told that the chapter titles of Halo Found Hope outlined an inspiring journey. God’s titles to the chapters of our lives captivate us when we pay attention. Every individual journey is designed by our Heavenly Father. We need to listen to Him when He says, “Beloved, I am with you every second, minute, hour, day, week, month and year.” Sometimes when things get hard, we need to remember that He will not abandon us.

My thoughts: This is an incredible story of one woman's amazing blessing! In some ways, it is a hard story to read, since she is so open about all that she went through. It is a scary journey that must of been horrible for her and her family to go through, and yet they came out of the surgery, scare, and rehabilitation with the knowledge that only God could do the incredible.
I received this book from Lit fuse in exchange for my honest review.
