I couldn’t put the book down. I love how this mom tells her story of the accident and all the miracles & medicine that followed that kept her son alive. You will never doubt the power of prayer after reading this book. Have a tissue ready when you read it because you actually feeling like you are right there with her every step of the way.
A big shout out to Judy McKenna, Director of Nursing Education, for inviting me to come and speak with the Nursing students at Alma College. Finding Hope on Vegas was a required read last fall for many students in the Alma Nursing program. I can not wait to hear the students’ perspectives on the book and answer their questions. Wish me luck!

Need a reason to read Finding Hope on Vegas? Here are a few.
Nate’s bull riding accident is the fall 2017 cover story for the Saginaw Faith magazine. Author Erika Hirschman does a great job summarizing the events documented in Finding Hope on Vegas. Thanks to Sarah Moore Kuschell for the fantastic pictures in the hops field.

Nathan and his bull riding accident were featured in Michigan Blood’s August cover story. It is a great article that emphasizes the importance of donating blood. Donating is an easy way to save a life! You can view the article in full here.

I have been invited to speak by the Golden Agers about the events that inspired the book, Finding Hope on Vegas, tomorrow, Oct. 10, 2017, at the Sage Township Hall. If you have not heard about the story, come and join us as I summarize the miracles, support and love our family encountered on Aug. 9, 2014. It is an incredible story of faith, hope and love.
I will also touch on how my post traumatic stress journal became a book. Since I am not writer by nature, I consider the whole process from journal, to development, editing and publishing this book a small miracle all by itself.
I look forward to seeing you, and if you have not had a chance to get a copy I will have books available after the presentation.

Eighteen and three-fourths gallons of blood was needed to save Nathan Davis. Yet, throughout this tragedy the Davis family found an unexpected gift by an unsuspecting giver: hope on a bull named Vegas.
On August 9, 2014, tragedy struck the annual Gratiot County Fair. In the blink of an eye, a fifteen-hundred-pound bull named Vegas stomped seventeen-year-old Nathan Davis to near death. Initially, no one understood the extent of Nathan’s injuries as he walked with assistance out of the arena. The situation, however, grew bleak when Nathan’s health quickly took a turn for the worse and he found himself fighting for his life in a small rural hospital.
Finding Hope on Vegas details an incredible, true story of relentless dedication and determination and how a self-reliant family suddenly found themselves completely dependent on Divine Providence and intervention.
For the Davis family, excruciating minutes slowly turned into hours, days, and weeks. It would literally take miracle after miracle to keep Nathan alive, but through the outpouring of support from family, friends, and strangers, the Davis family found the strength to handle more than they could have ever imagined.
