Blog Tour Book Review: Halo Found Hope by Helouise Matzelle

Machines beeping, the blur of medical staff running, a crash cart whizzing into an ICU room---was there any hope?

A young woman lay, packed in ice, as doctors attempted to somehow stop the swelling in her brain that threatened to take her life... and her family waited.

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.

My Thoughts: 

Halo found hope was a touching heartwaring book to read. It opened my eyes to see what the author had done and went through to get where she is today. I cannot say that I feel sorry for them, because they had the marcile of hope of God. To read such a tremendous story opened my eyes to the things I take for granted, even the smallest of things. God will make a way even if the money isn't there or your going through struggles. There are people out there suffering from many types of illnesses and while you complain about it they give thanks for what some people call the simplest of things. This book will change your life to see how a tumor effected a family, but pulled through no matter the odds they face.
