A mother's embrace of hope through trials of suffering... Cindy loves her family, her friends, and most especially, she loves God. This is HER story – her joys, her struggles, her strength, her questions, her hope, her faith. That Was God is a multidimensional epic centered on my youngest daughter’s fight back from a horrible automobile accident and the resultant physiological and emotional challenges she faced. It is a story about insurmountable adversity and about God’s goodness through it. Make no mistake – this is not a story filled with miraculous signs and happy dances all around. God shows up in so many ways, yet the reader will go on an emotional rollercoaster ride with Cindy that lasts years. One that I did not fully understand before reading it. I expected to be familiar with much of the content as I began to read. I quickly learned that Cindy and I lived the same story but experienced much of it differently. A loose analogy is how the four gospels recount identical events of Jesus’ life, but offer different perspectives. After reading That Was God, I had a deeper understanding of Megan’s experiences, as well as other family members. Most importantly, I gained a deeper understanding of Cindy’s emotional experience – albeit years afterward. One would think you know most everything your best friend is thinking and feeling. Cindy and I talk every day. And when we were in the thick of this battle, we constantly shared our thoughts, fears, hopes, and joys. We cried together then – and I cried often while reliving the story. It renewed my own experiences and exposed me to a piece of Cindy’s heart I had not seen beforehand. Perhaps you chose to read this because of a similar life event; maybe one that you are still living. Truth be told – this story is still being written too, with every step forward Megan takes. Prepare to relive some of your emotions through these pages. But, also prepare to see things in a new way – through the lens of another. My prayer is that you will be stronger and better equipped because of it. God bless… Tony Hipszer Cindy’s husband and best friend
