It's more about a quiet leader of sorts who does seem to have it all. He's married to country singer Carrie Underwood, living his childhood dream and has access to a vast amount of opportunities that professional athletes enjoy. Traded by the Ottawa Senators where he spent over 11 years, Fisher was traded in February to the Predators. Heartbroken, the soft-spoken player continued to make Jesus Christ a priority and reach out to others through his faith, baffling his new teammates with his work ethic. Why did you decide to write Defender of Faith? I think kids need role models. And I thought why not?
