Offering Hope Through A New Heart
Return to Yours Main Page

A Heart Like Yours is a resounding encouragement for those of us without even half of the maladies that Cindy Valenti-Scinto has dealt with. After this read, I walk a little more grateful for so much that I take for granted and thank God everyday through my hardships. This is his way of sanctifying our purposes.

All who live on this fallen planet of ours will suffer to some extent. Cindy
Valenti-Scinto, however, has suffered more serious health issues than any ten people I know put together. She and Job could have some interesting conversations! Yet her story is a joy-cocktail of hope, encouragement, and the hard lessons of learning to trust in God no matter what comes. Her book A Heart Like Yours is just what the doctor ordered for anyone walking through a dark time or a difficult medical challenge.

Some are born strong. Some derive strength from adversity. Some find strength through faith, and some, a very few like Cindy Valenti-Scinto, define it!

As with the first book, this one has the reader jumping from encouraged
to joyful to disturbed (over Cindy’s treatment) and back again. It’s a really engaging ride that I found both engrossing and informative. If I ever get a serious illness, I want Cindy on my side!

I love a story of character, courage, and the indomitable human spirit. Cindy Valenti-Scinto’s newest book doesn’t disappoint. Not only does the author have something to say, but also she says it in a way that commands attention from the
first page to the last. Her book is motivating, inspiring, and, yes—entertaining.

I marvel that someone who lives so close to death can be so full of life.

A Heart Like Yours is a book of inspiration from an angel living out her days on this earth the best way she can with the situation she has been dealt. And in doing so, she is giving and offering many people hope! Her books will surely
outlive her time on earth. What a blessing we all hope to fulfill!

Often we take the heart for granted. It’s a mindless assumption that our heart will work, day in and day out. In this book, Cindy Valenti-Scinto not only expresses the value of a heart but also she knows first-hand the fear of losing one. This touching and, yes, “heart” felt story will bring you to your knees while guiding you upward to a stronger faith.

This story rips your heart out ... again and again, just like the transplant teams who have, over the years, cracked open her chest to keep the author alive. A riveting ride from emergency rooms to the throne of God.

Cindy has a God-given gift to turn intensely personal experiences into
soul-stirring, spiritual lessons. Once again she has captured into words the profound love of God. I have personally observed her seeking to live her days on earth as a vessel chosen by the Master to endure overwhelming physical challenges. With penetrating Scriptural insights, this book is sure to leave readers challenged—deeply challenged to surrender whatever trials God asks
them to endure into His loving care.
