Synopsis: Are you a control freak? Have you or a loved one faced a chronic disease and struggled to remain "in control?" Do you wrestle with the truth that God really is the One in control of every detail of our lives rather than resting in the assurance that He does "work all things for good"? If your answer to any of these questions is "yes," then this book may well speak to you at a heart level. Tom and Sandra Fiser were a busy couple: parents, business owners, churchgoers, busy caring for aging parents, busy pursuing the American Dream. They thought they were in control of their lives, despite Tom's heart disease and numerous surgeries. They even stayed in control of their fears and doubts, to the point where they didn't share them with each other, thus unintentionally eroding the trust that is so crucial to a happy marriage. In this honest account, Sandra shares how Tom's heart disease and their attempts to control life rather than accepting God's control colored every aspect of their lives. Outwardly they were doing all the right things, but inwardly they were struggling to find their way. This is a story specifically about heart disease, but its lessons are apparent to anyone struggling with an illness or other "thorn in the flesh" that he cannot control. As you walk with them on their faith journey, you will see that, although it is humbling to realize we do not really have control, abundant peace and assurance and joy await those who learn to trust God even in dark circumstances. Ultimately, A Change of Heart is a story of God's grace and how He may use difficult circumstances to teach us and call us back to Him. Note from the Foreword: To a professional health care provider, the tale will tell the inside story of what being a helpless, completely dependent, yet utterly trusting patient means. It will make the physician, nurse, resident, fellow, custodian, and social worker reflect on their purpose. It will also show the foibles and hubris we in the profession sometimes exhibit. It is an eye opening tome and should make us all want to be better care givers. Hospital administrators will learn a bit more of the patient experience and that we aren't just responsible for performing miraculous surgical procedures. Rather, we must also pay attention to the soul of the patient and family. It will teach the real meaning of care and healing and, perhaps, cure. James B. Young, M.D. Professor of Medicine and Executive Dean Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University George and Linda Kaufman Chair Chairman, Endocrinology and Metabolism Institute Cleveland Clinic
