About the Book

Is it possible we only see a small fraction of what this life has for us? Often, our view is blinded by the things of this world. My family’s seemingly perfect life was dramatically interrupted when a doctor described our son Payton as the sickest kid in an acute-care children’s hospital. As Payton’s life hung on the precipice, the doctors posed three daunting questions that were impossible to fathom with human understanding—ones a parent should never face. The response was not our own, and the years to follow would reveal an improbable journey of faith. Eyes of the Father: Seeing Meaning in the Mirror unlocks a series of inexplicable events that provided assurance and perspective in ways we never could have imagined and begged the question “Why?” This is a story of hope as we cast our eyes on things unseen and the glorious unfolding that is ours, despite difficulty and human despair, to see anew with eyes of the Father.

About the Author

Todd Leyden has spent the past twenty-five years growing in his Christian faith. His innate ability to see how the Lord works through various situations for His glory led him on a providential journey as he responded to the Lord’s call to leave Arthur Andersen, a $9 billion global professional services firm, on the eve of the firm’s collapse to start his own business. In 2016, another series of God-ordered circumstances led him from his prestigious role with the NCAA and college athletics to a Christian camp in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, where his family had started down a path to forge their identity two decades prior. The move required Todd and his wife Robyn, to leave their twenty-two-year-old son Chase; Robyn’s sister, Cari; and thirty-two years of life and community impact in the city of Indianapolis to start their next career in Christian ministry.
