On August 16, 2008, a small private plane carrying popular “mommy blogger” Stephanie Nielson and her husband, Christian, crashed in Arizona, exploding on impact. Though Christian was injured and burned, Stephanie bore the brunt of the explosion with burns over 80 percent of her body. Near death, she remained in a medically-induced coma for 10 weeks.
Despite Stephanie’s grueling recovery and lingering scars, she maintained her positive attitude. She chronicled her journey of healing on her blog, called The Nie Nie Dialogues, and has written a book called Heaven is Here.
Put your trust in the Lord. (Psalm 4:5)
Heal my emotional and spiritual scars, Jesus.
