Book came in great condition and was sent very quickly. I haven't read it yet. It's on my list. At least now I have it with my collection.
A rare lady Dec 18, 2009
Joni is for real. There are scads of stories around about people who have overcome awful injuries or handicaps. There are many who have then done constructive things with their lives. But Joni is amazing to me. She has spoken to millions of people, especially encouraging those with challenges, both physical and emotional. She has become an exceptional artist, using her mouth to paint. She is a top selling Christian writer and has written prolifically. She has trained her voice and has produced several well received music CDs. I mean, what challenges are left for this lady?
Joni is one of the best representatives I know of the Christian faith. I heard her on radio the other night mentioning how she misses things she used to do during the holidays before the accident that left her paralyzed. It was gratifying to find a "victim" who can reminisce about her life before her accident without bitterness or self pity. I cannot say enough positively about Ms. Tada and this, her first book.
A Great Life Testimony Nov 22, 2009
This autobiography is one that may literally be a lifesaver for readers.
It is the story of Joni Eareckson Tada. Paralyzed from the neck down in a diving accident at age 17, Joni has faced suffering that few could imagine. She has endured unbelievable pain and loss. She has not even been able to do the simplest things for herself such as get a glass of water. Yet, in spite of all of that, she has excelled both spiritually and in the impact that she has had on countless others.
The author provides some terrific insights into thankfulness, suffering and God's will. One thing that amazes me is her observation about how 'being in a wheelchair became trivial' after she realized how God's perspective is so completely different from ours and she changed her own. Another is the way that she visualized Jesus telling her that He knows how to run her life much better than she does even if it meant being physically helpless.
Another interesting story deals with the thought that perhaps a prayer of hers before the accident led to that lifechanging event.
The bottom line is that this is a superb book that should be read by all Christians, those dealing with big disabilities, and virtually everyone else who is interested in a life story made powerful by Jesus Christ.

She has written over thirty books. many of which refer to her struggle as a quadriplegic. this book simply marks her beginning since so many after such experiences wish to die she proves there is life have disability. Joni is not really disabled rather she is other-abled.
