This is a book of miracles. It is the unbelievable, inspiring true story of Julie Papievis, a successful businesswoman and athlete whose life was changed forever when her car was struck by a teenage running a red light. Julie sustained brain stem injuries that left her with a mere 4% chance to survive, and never given much hope to recover to any degree.

When Julie woke up from a coma three weeks after her accident, she wasn't given great odds for much of a recovery. But with strength and determination and a lot of faith, Julie has recovered and was eventually able to run a 5k race and then go on to run a triathlon. Her journey to recovery was not easy, but her Faith in God and her relationship with Christ enabled her to keep moving forward. Today she is an advocate for others with brain stem injuries, and spends time speaking to groups about her journey and her overwhelming faith.

This book outlines her journey. It is inspiring and motivating and had me in tears many times while reading it. For anyone who has struggled with illness, or watched someone they loved struggle with illness, reading book would be a gift. The book fills you with such hope that you can get through another day, that we all have a purpose for our life. Julie Papievis' life is nothing short of a miracle. People are not supposed to recover from what she has recovered so fully from. Experience some of the miracle yourself by reading her story. I can guarantee that you won't forget her, and you won't regret the time you spend with her story.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
