Litfuse Review: Halo Found Hope by:Helo Matzelle
About the Book:
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.
Halo Found Hope is a book about a woman that went through some of the most unimaginable things that another human being can go through. Helo underwent a surgery to remove a tumor from her brain. After the surgery her brain began to swell and as a result a lot of things went terribly wrong for this woman. And through it all she clung to the feet of her Savior, she had a HUGE reason for doing this. The reason is because He is the only one that could pull her through it.
This amazing woman can and did stay focused on Him throughout the journey. And because of this God pulled her through and stayed close by her side throughout the entire ordeal. This woman's testimony will blow your mind and it will cause you to never question God but to run to Him with arms wide open. If you allow Him His space to work in your life, he will and He will do it up big.
