Greatness Accomplished Feb 5, 2006
Joni Woelfel's The Edge of Greatness is a set of vignettes and anecdotes that explores the quietest yet deepest realms of the human experience. Each chapter, beginning with a quotation from Scripture, is an intense nugget of wisdom borne from the depths of love, joy and suffering. This majestic book resonates with the power of not merely survival, but of triumph. With her unfailing optimism, courage and faith, Ms. Woelfel proves through the offerings of her humble insights and growth transformations that she herself is on the Edge of Greatness.
Beyond Greatness! Jan 10, 2005
This is Joni's forth book and to me it is the best thus far. I love the new interactive format, and enjoyed the commentaries from Joseph & Sheila Biernat. Joni has shared some incredible insights into her life and just gets better with each book she publishes. This book makes a great gift, is ideal for study, and has wonderful stand-alone meditations. My rating is five plus stars!
Over the Edge of Greatness! Jan 6, 2005
The only thing that doesn't ring true in this, Joni's fourth book, is the title. It is not on the edge of greatness, it is definitely over the edge of greatness! Drawing on her own experiences and the trials of medical illness, death of a child, disfigurement, and marital crisis, she leads the reader once again to the light of hope and through the journey of personal growth. The format of the book---scripture verse, personal story, "He said/ She said" and workbook page---allows the reader to open the book at any chapter and find the kind of inspiration and wisdom that Joni is becoming known for and to leave feeling refreshed and usually with a smile of a tear at one of her stories. This is truly her finest book and once again born in the crucible of a life that has been and is being lived to the fullest! I recommend The Edge of Greatness for all ages and both genders and I hope Joni is already at work on her next book!
