Before My Heart Stops

I just read this amazing book. I saw it at Deseret Book on Saturday, bought it, and finished it Sunday afternoon. Paul Cardall is a pianist who records LDS songs and hymns that he's arranged, along with his own music. I really like his music that I've heard. In his memoir he tells his story of being born with a congenital heart defect, and his journey while waiting for a heart transplant. He shares many quotes by church leaders, and his story is so inspiring (at least to me). I found it a little repetitive at times, but the story was still interesting and helpful to me in my life. Even when we go through trials, or should I say especially when we go through trials, Heavenly Father blesses us and definitely does not forget about us.

His book is filled with blog posts that he wrote while waiting for his heart, which you can find here: He has now moved his blog here:, and his website here:
