On February 26, 2014, Lexi Hansen, then an 18-year-old freshman at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, was riding her longboard on campus. Suddenly, Lexi was struck by a car and suffered a severe brain injury. Lexi arrived at a nearby hospital in critical condition, was pronounced brain dead at the scene and was given less than a 1 percent chance of survival.
Lexi's family created a Facebook page entitled "Pray For Lexi" that described Lexi's severe condition and called for thousands of friends and strangers to send prayers in her behalf. A week later, Lexi's family surrounded her hospital bed while singing hymns, and despite the many odds that were against her, she woke up.
Lexi's story is a miracle. God is truly aware of all of his children and their circumstances. Through faith in him, miracles and endless light can be brought into the dimmest parts of our lives.
