About the Author
Julie Papievis has a national speaking and lecturing career
a survivor of traumatic brain injury

Publishers Description
When a teenager ran a red light and crushed Julie's little sports car, it left her with a brain stem injury and close to death. She had, at best, a four percent chance of survival, let alone recovery. Suddenly she found herself on heaven's doorstep. "A penetrating light surrounded me," she explains. "I was shocked by its physical warmth. I felt as if this light was gathering me in its arms." Her two grandmothers appeared, seemingly to welcome her-but instead they told her to return to her body. "Your body will heal," they said. "Go back and be happy." A month later, she awoke to find herself paralyzed. As an athlete, Julie found the helplessness almost unbearable. Yet her memory of heaven sustained her. In Go Back and Be Happy, Julie describes her painful but remarkable recovery-she ran a 5k race just five years later, and in 2007 completed a triathlon. At the same time she has undertaken a spiritual journey to a rich and satisfying faith, which she now shares with thousands.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
No Sugar Coating  Sep 19, 2008
I had a dear friend who sustained a similar brain stem injury and know firsthand the courage recovery takes--to any extent. Julie was a highly successful career woman and athelete whose life purpose was forever altered in an instant. From the accident, Julie honestly recounts her recovery journey, from learning to brush her teeth to rediscovering a purpose for her life. She is a woman of faith and it is evident what a defining difference her faith made. Julie's account is full of many heroes who went beyond the expected. Her tale is bound to inspire.
Read it and Be Happy  Oct 11, 2007
Good, solid book, about a good solid person and her struggles to overcome the results of a life threatening car accident. I think she had a 3% chance of survival, and much less than that to become a walking, talking, upbeat person. Her sole ambition is to help others who have been injured, plus convey her experience and knowlege with lessons of prevention. The book has all the ingredients of a fall to some of the deepest depths of what life can provide back to a much higher point (in many ways) than before the accident. Good family, good doctors, solid religion, near death experience, coupled with struggles to return to basic human functionality (needs) and eventually the 'wants' that most of us take for granted.
The Inner Life  Nov 20, 2005

overcoming a car crash - brain stem injury - protracted coma
and consequent disabilities to emerge, years later, as a
crusader helping others with brain injuries.

While many people suffer traumatic brain-stem injury,
very few recover to fully competent adult life. Most
never recover physically. But among for who do, there
are still mental and spiritual hurdles to deal with, and
that is what this book is all about.

I came to this book thinking that I already knew what
she had to say - since I had read a news report of her
story in a newspaper and I had heard her tell her story
at a local public meeting. But the book was full of
surprises. All that I had known was the medical details.
Indeed, this book is more about her internal life, and I
found my eyes tearing several times.

I recommend this book.
Preservation is key.  Nov 4, 2005
Like Julie Papievis, i am a brain injury survivor. Although i have not recovered to the extent Julie has, we have many similar barriers we have faced, face, and will face in the future. Before reading Julie's story i could not find another brain injury survivor who recovered from symptoms like mine, and thus, i was giving up hope. However, after reading her book, her determination and resolve gives me hope that my brain and body may recover more than i could ever expect.
Understanding handicaps  Jul 26, 2005
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is well written, easy to follow, and makes a powerful point. As one who is handicapped myself, I found Julie's account of her experiences to be painfully honest and easy to relate to. Anyone who wants to understand the physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational challenges of being handicapped would benefit from reading her story.
