Do kids have strokes? Is it even possible? Can my child be at risk?
The answer to all of those are yes. Through a Dad's Eye is written by Tommy Jones, whose family was faced with a tragic brain injury to their son at an early age. At only nine, Brady Jones suffered a massive stroke for no apparent reason and was forever changed. The author tells how the situation changed his son, his family, his outlook on life, and radically altered his relationship with God.
Through a Dad's Eye is a heartwarming story about how a father has viewed and lived since June 10, 2005. Tommy has been wandering, lost for years, and has finally decided to share his family story about Brady's stroke and the years of pain he has witnessed his son have each day. As parents, we look to protect our children, but a stroke is nothing anyone can prepare for or protect against.
If you are struggling with pain, sorrow, or feel lost, this is a must read about how one man has coped with his tragedy. Tommy simply reconnected with God and learned that his plans are not always in line with our own.

I had the pleasure of meeting Tommy Jones and his son Brady at a book signing in Alpharetta. Brady’s left hand grip crushed and challenged mine, and that should be testament enough to the strength of the Jones family. The book is a quick read, but not an easy one. Mr. Jones speaks directly to all dads who think they can ‘fix’ all their family’s problems. He describes not just the chronological journey, but his own physical and emotional reckoning is the power behind Through a Dad’s Eyes. The author recounts the events of Brady’s (then only 9 years old) stroke, the assistance from friends, family, and physicians, his struggle of inadequacy, his wife’s love, and his own scare with cancer. Mr. Jones mixes the alarming with the amusing when he recounts how his trust in God came partly because of a ‘warning’ he received after crashing his motocross bike in a high risk maneuver. If you have struggled when bad things happen to you and yours, and wonder how anyone can overcome the dark times, I highly recommend this book for you or someone you know. Brady’s story, and a too-small afterward in his own words, will make your own problems seem very small, indeed. “Accept help, trust God, and GET UP AND WALK AGAIN.” Thank you, Brady, for setting the example. Get this book, read it, and share it with those you love!
Great story and journey. I didn't know this could happen.
