In September 2012, celebrity nutrition and fitness expert JJ Virgin got the call that every parent dreads: her 16-year-old son, Grant, had been the victim of a horrific hit-and-run. His injuries were so severe and his chances of survival so slim that doctors told his family to let Grant die. JJ decided to stop listening to the odds and start expecting miracles instead.
Miracle Mindset tells the moving story of JJ, Grant, and their community as they made the journey from tragedy to healing. This powerful and uplifting memoir offers you an intimate look into the heart and mind of a mother battling for both her son and her own future, plus the lessons she learned that are crucial to a healthy, resilient mindset.
If you’ve ever struggled with anxiety or indecision or wondered how to hold onto hope in the face of a crisis, this inspiring book will help you define what it takes to stay strong and positive. Find out the pivotal moments in JJ’s past that helped her make the tough calls, plus the insight she gained from turning her worst nightmare into an opportunity to grow and thrive.
“Miracle Mindset is a story of tragedy and triumph and the road map for each one of us to follow in our own journey through tough times to a stronger and greater place in life and in ourselves. This is a book you not only read, this is a book you live. You will be so grateful for the gifts in this book that you will want to come back again and again.”
“This book is Chicken Soup for Your Soul. It is an inspiring account about facing your worst nightmare with courage, faith, and forgiveness. Reading Miracle Mindset is like getting a pep talk from JJ Virgin, and she is the best kind of coach: one who walks the talk and isn’t afraid to tell you the truth about her own hard times and how she got through them.”
