BEAVERTON – On Aug. 9, 2014, tragedy struck Michelle Davis and her family at the annual Gratiot County Fair. In the blink of an eye, a 1500-pound bull named Vegas stomped her 17-year-old son 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.
In Finding Hope on Vegas: a memoir, Michelle details an incredible, true story of her family’s relentless dedication and determination and how their 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.
Michelle grew up in a small town in Central Michigan. She married her high school sweetheart, Tim. Together they have raised and home-schooled five children on their little hobby farm in Beaverton. Michelle graduated from Central Michigan University where she received a bachelor’s degree in computer science. After working for almost eight years in the technology industry, she left to dedicate herself to her family. A devout Catholic, Michelle believes God has a plan for everyone. She feels truly blessed to be able to share her family’s story of hope.
