Model and fashion blogger Lauren Scruggs was involved in a horrific accident last December when she accidentally walked into the propeller blade of a private plane. Scruggs has had a long road to recovery and healing–she now has a prosthetic hand and eye.
“Even though I’ve lost my left eye, I’ve just realized the Lord has a strong purpose in it, and I need to use that,” Scruggs said. She is currently writing a book called Still Lolo about her miraculous story of survival. Scruggs is a fighter, and throughout her accident, her faith in God has been what keeps her going.
She was interviewed on the Today Show during the London Olympics, where she stated that Christian gymnast Gabby Douglas is her role model and inspiration.
During the interview, she received a special surprise visit! Watch the video below to see the exchange.
If you didn’t catch the original story, you can click here. I pray that through Scruggs’ book, she touches the lives of many people who are going through a recovery, or simply someone who wants to learn more about God’s provision.
