Paul McMonagle was a student at Auburn in the spring of 2000 when about two weeks before finals, he suffered an excruciating headache while watching a movie with his girlfriend.
He stood up, threw up from the pressure, and passed out.
For the next two years, he only remembers snapshots of his life. Paramedics from the local hospital in Opelika, Alabama, transported him to East Alabama Medical Center after determining he had suffered a traumatic brain injury from a rupture of a genetic anomaly called an arteriovenous malformation or AVM.
In this book, he shares his inspiring story of what he’s learned living with such a brain injury. Over the years, he’s found at overcoming such a condition is impossible without God.
To follow Jesus means to be willing to lay down everything to pick up the cross. Within this narrative, you’ll find threads of grace, mercy, and encouragement to overcome anything—all while moving closer to the Lord.
