One thought on “Joni

  1. What an inspiring book Joni is a person who refused to let circumstances defeat her Her faith, her perseverance, her sheer determination brought about an amazing triumph of human spirit.


  2. I read this book because I m working with a client on a book and he also has quadriplegia He said that when he was first injured, this book helped him cope with his disability I hoped the book would help provide some inspiration and structural ideas for me in my client s project.Joni is a Christian, and almost the entire book is devoted to her relating to her injury in the context of Christianity I understand that her faith was important to her in coping with the whys and the hows of her injury, [...]


  3. I went to see Joni Eareckson Tada speak and was so enthralled by her that I borrowed this book immediately from the library She is such a motivating and encouraging hero of faith You will not be disappointed from reading her autobiography She tells you what happened in such details that you feel like you are right there in the hospital after her diving accident I also anguished when I read about her pain, suffering, and depression I was so happy for her when she turned back to God and realized h [...]


  4. Powerful testament to the truth that even when we don t care about God, are mad at God, are bitter at God, or are running from God, He graciously makes himself known in our lives anyway I am amazed that Ms Eareckson Tada was able to surrender to God in such a way as to praise Him each morning though her heart cries out, I can t do quadriplegia any She really does give thanks in all circumstances 1 Thessalonians 5 18.


  5. What a blessing this book was as I read it with my 3 children It lead to many fruitful discussions, and helped them see how God can work in the life of a young person like them not just old people like me.

  8. I read this when I was junior high It was very inspirational Many of my friends were reading it at that time At one point, I acquired a few back issues of Western Horseman from the 1960 s and in one of them I discovered a letter from Joni in the pen pal section of the magazine, written before her paralysis I still have that magazine.


  9. This is a wonderful book that shows faith and God s amazing plan for our lives I rate this book five stars because it shows that we are small but he is BIG

  11. This is a very good book that guides us to blindly believe and trust in the LordThe story confirms the truth that all things work together for good to them that love God.



  12. In a sense this isn t a direct autobiography We meet Joni at the start of the book when she feels as if she is drowning after bumping her head, until she is rescued by one of her sisters It s a huge shock to her system to find herself in hospital, unable to move anything other than her head From dreams of college and independence, she is entirely dependent on the hospital staff, and unsure whether she will survive.The rest of the book charts her progress, including two operations, and a great de [...]



  13. I read Joni s book when I was in my 20 s then read again just lately and watched the DVD made by I believe Billy Grahams Association The book was very interesting, a tragedy, yet a book of redemption how God can be with us and we are never alone It was a story of a young girl that faced life s challenges in a very courageous manner esp For her age I recommend it to any age but I think young people would find the book intriguing help them in seeing just how each of our lives contain choices and c [...]


  14. Although I ve known of Joni for years, I had never investigated her story fully This honest account of a few years following her accident was very informative, and it created a desire in me to read her other book knowing that she did eventually marry I had two major take aways from the book 1 We are all in danger of being caught in what she called the treadmill of life eating, breathing, and sleeping, but many of us don t realize we re not living on purpose 2 What we take in matters Joni went th [...]


  15. This is one of the first Christian biographies I read It was very inspirational Her story was very challenging and uplifting at the same time.




  16. Read this ages ago when I first became a Christian It is an amazing story of an amazing walk of faith


  17. Joni is a compelling story of an average athletic and church going adolescent Growing up, Joni enjoyed riding horses, hiking, tennis, and swimming While she believed in God and knew scriptures, her spiritual walk was lukewarm On July 30, 1967, Joni dove into Chesapeake Bay after misjudging the shallowness of the water She suffered a fracture between the fourth and fifth cervical levels, which for some have meant death but for Joni instead resulted in her becoming a quadriplegic In writing about [...]


  18. The Good Growing up both in a Christian home and with a handicapped sibling, I had heard the story of Joni Eareckson Tada over the years, but, to actually read what she went through and how she triumphed over dire circumstances was rather powerful Instead of a whitewashed account of her Christian faith, it shows how she struggled with doubt, but learned the truth about God and His love A very moving storyd all the because it s 100% true.The Bad The formatting wide margins, another title page af [...]


  19. A woman who suffers a terrible accident which renders her a quadriplegic realizes that God engineered her circumstances He used them to prove Himself as well as her loyalty that her injury was not a tragedy but a gift God was using to help her conform to the image of Christ, something that would mean her ultimate satisfaction, happiness even joy.


  20. StrugglesThis book covers the author s struggles both physically and spiritually after a diving accident leaves her a quadriplegic.I ve read this before in it s physical form but this edition adds an updated afterword and a list of resources for the disabled.


  21. In her autobiography, Joni Eareckson tells us how, in the face of darkness, she trusted God to get her through the toughest time in her life.Joni Eareckson was a normal seventeen year old Having graduating high school, having many animals, and going to college, she had a perfect life.Then, in July 1967, she dove into the Chesapeake Bay Suddenly, her head hit something hard, and the next thing she knew she was lying face down at the bottom of the bay She couldn t move, couldn t feel anything from [...]


  22. I found this book on my bookshelf My mother had given it to me 38 years ago, and I read it then, but I decided to read it again because I know people who have disabilities, and who have found Christ as their salvation, and I wanted to understand how they used their faith to overcome the mental and physical torment they suffered.Joni suffered a diving accident when aged 17 She broke her neck at C4 C5 resulting in quadraplegia I personally have C5 C6 thinning, and therefore I can relate albeit in [...]


  23. Joni Eareckson s candid, transparent recounting of her recovery from a nearly life threatening diving accident provides encouragement, comfort and motivation for all who read Joni This is the first edition of Eareckson s autobiography but several newer editions are available, I believe.While in her mid twenties, Joni shared in this book the struggles of learning to not only accept life as a quadriplegic but also to embrace and thank God for it She was only 17 when she broke her neck after diving [...]


  24. What a thought provoking and refreshing auto biography I have struggled with a health condition for many years, but a year ago, it took a turn for the worse When I was able to read, this was one of the first books I picked up from the library The copy was worn book jacket missing, yellowed pages, and that distinct odor that can only be attributed to the many houses visited But that could only mean this work of Joni s has stood the test of time The book personally made me feel as if I was not alo [...]


  25. Wow Joni is such an inspiration The suffering she endured, physically, psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually has become a guide for finding silver linings She manages to explain her faith in God without seeming like overbearing like some people who try to share their testimony Some people just come off as fake, like they don t believe a word they are telling you but they just love hearing the sound of their voice so much they just keep blabbing Joni is NOT like that She shares her story [...]
