The intensely emotional and miraculous journey of a mother and son.
When God Changed His Mind is the non-fiction account of a teenage boy whose mother asked God, in faith, to save the life she had always believed He would take early.
When Christina Custodio dropped her thirteen-year-old son, Isaiah, off at football practice one September evening, she had no idea her world was about to be turned upside down. Just a few hours later, she found herself standing by Isaiah’s bedside in a hospital. He had suffered a brain bleed and needed emergency surgery. Doctors weren’t sure if he would survive. Amid her worst nightmare, Christina chose to trust God and look for the good He was doing among other patients and their families, hospital staff, and even those reading about Isaiah’s story.
Through her journey, she found joy even in her darkest moments and in unexpected ways that only God could have orchestrated. When God Changed His Mind is a story of faith in the midst of crisis and even finding joy and hope. It’s a tender reminder that even through heartache and suffering, God is still there—and He can use everything for our good.

In these turbulent times when the ugly stain of racism is at the forefront of our society bringing rampant division and mistrust, we desperately need ways to come together.
To build bridges of understanding between all in the body of Christ, we bring you twenty-three voices of Black Christian women, authors, ministers, educators, leaders, and mothers. Their powerful life experiences and heartfelt wisdom will shake you, open your eyes, and help you understand your sisters in Christ.
From the ways women of color are treated in our society, to raising Black daughters and sons, how a Black woman can have a white supremacist attitude, to how to respond as Christ would have us, their life experiences will be a link in bridging the gap between us with love.
-- As a Christian, my response to all the tension, the polarization, and toxic environments currently unfolding in America is to consistently ask the Lord, ''How can I best represent you?'' . . . Change starts with you, and includes repentance, listening, being willing to move out of your comfort zone and have empathy for someone who doesn't look like you. -- Mercy Lokulutu
May this powerful volume be a part of the bridge of love and understanding we need to walk across with our sisters.
