Recently, Brenda and Ashley had the opportunity to speak about their book at an event in St. Jacobs


Brenda and Ashley speaking about The Way I See Things at a Women’s Event at the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church on May 7, 2024

At the age of 17 Ashley Tindall was in a life threatening motor vehicle accident and was airlifted to Toronto SickKids Hospital.

Her family formed a vigil around her bedside as she lay in a coma fighting for her life. The ensuing weeks and months would involve surgery after surgery in an attempt to repair the chronic cerebrospinal fluid leaking from her brain. At the same time, she was adapting to significant vision loss and rehabilitation from brain injury.

The Way I See Things brings the reader through each stage of the journey of a mother Brenda Tindall and her daughter Ashley, a patient and caregiver as they painstakingly endure the most challenging time of their lives.

They share the raw feelings, the hope and the spiritual experiences that take these two women to places they never thought they would be.

Find encouragement and hope through their lived experience as they learn to live one day at a time.

"Profound perspective on the lived experience of brain injury." S.M.

"I am looking at my day-to-day stresses in a different light because of your book." M.A.

"It is honest, uplifting and well written." A.R.

"What a powerful story of courage and faith. I had a hard time putting it down, it is so well written, so open, honest and genuine. I wish your book was required reading for every doctor, especially surgeons, nurses and therapists. Such a powerful reminder of what it is like to be a patient and parent at the receiving end of care." J.F.

"I really do believe it will help anyone who has been suddenly thrown into a major trauma and give them hope." J.C.

"I found myself immersed in emotion, connectedness, faith, and hope. This blatantly honest book drew me in from the beginning and before long I found myself nibbling at my nails with concern, and yes, even shedding a tear now and again." G.B.

"One thing that shines through that hasn't changed in the pre and post accident Ashley is your positivity and ability to see the good in any situation." T.C.
