Connie easy shopper
I thank God for Joni everyday, and if God can use a wonderful woman such as herself I know he can use me in others lives.

I have bought probably 16 - 20 of these what would be described as booklets. Usually they have been buy 3 get one free making them just ~$3 apiece. Written by a woman who has been a quadriplegic for now over 40 years, this famous speaker, writer, AND artist (using brush with her teeth) offers hope to those who might be going through hard times of all types. She refers to the famous quote from "The Shawshank Redemption" which she applauds as a movie. But she is a very strong Christian and that message will be prevalent and one I agree with. Being the size it is I have sent it to different people at various times either alone or as part of a gift because I think that is something so many of us need right now - Hope.

Nobody earns the right to be heard more than those Christian saints who have been "refined in the fire." In this little booklet Tada (a quadriplegic for the past four decades - who speaks, writes, and paints with a brush in her mouth) shares some encouraging words for those who are "in the fire" of suffering. I think that this little booklet is useful to read before, during, or after suffering as the thesis of Tada is centralized on the eventual glory we will experience because of the promises of Christ in the Scriptures.

The Four Chapters Are:

1) Hope is Hard to Come By - Tada discusses her and our battle with suffering and our selfish nature that only God can deliver us from - "He [God] wanted me to reckon myself dead--dead to sin--because if God can raise the dead, you'd better believe he could raise me out of my hopelessness."

2) Meeting Suffering and Joy on God's Terms - She writes, "To this you were called because Christ suffered for you, leaving you this kind of example that you should follow. He endured the cross for the joy that was set before him (Heb. 12:2). Should we expect to do less? So then, join me; boast in your afflictions. Delight in your infirmities. Glory in your weaknesses, for then you know that Christ's power rests in you (2 Cor. 12:9)."

3) Hope is Contagious - "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies. But we live in a dark, diseased world under the curse of sin. Hell is real. And God owes this utterly rebellious planet absolutely nothing. But aren't you glad that he is a God of love, not wanting anyone to perish? And he is out to convince this unbelieving, sarcastic, skeptical world of his power to save, his abilities to sustain, and his desire to share his hope.

I am a soldier in USARPAC stationed in Alaska. I am a woman who gets injured more easily in the Army than I did in civilian life. I have been dealing with bad ankle issues since I was stationed up here, and then during deployment it got a whole lot worse. Once back from deployment the doctors kept telling me oh you just sprained it, they give me pills and a piece of paper that says I can't run on it for so long. I have been getting this from the doctors since 2010. It is mid 2013 and I just now have been blessed with surgery, my ankle was a lot worse than the docs ever thought. I won't go into details , I will walk again, but I may not run like I used to and I dearly enjoyed running. I have been dealing very badly with depression because this injury kept coming up, even with surgery I am battling depression. Because now my husband has to help me with simple things and he is not home much, we are both military. I go back on duty soon, but won't be able to do much...I get so frustrated not being able to do much at all. This book has taken me out of the depths of the black abyss I have been living in and has pulled me into the light! I pray you read this because I fully intend to share this book with all those i meet. This book is saving my life, my marriage, my hopes, my dreams, and my faith. I thank God for Joni everyday, and if God can use a wonderful woman such as herself I know he can use me in others lives. I have been dealing with these health issues, financial issues, negativity at work because I am a woman, amongst so many other things. But this book will be in my top 5 to read every month to help keep me focused on stars not mud. I will share with you one short phrase I learned from another woman then I will go: Two women looked through prison bars, One saw mud the other saw Stars. I don't know who wrote that but I am now focusing on the stars!

Would recommend this book to anyone who loves Our Lord to see the life He wants us to live for him. Whether you are healthy or have any kind of affliction, this book is an encouraging little book of hope in Him.

Suffering is the gift no one wants, but all experience to one degree or another. To share in the sufferings of Christ with a joyful attitude will certainly beg the question, " What gives you the strength to endure?" We as Christians live on borrowed strength and never with more visibility than in the midst of suffering. This book is short and "meaty" and would be an excellent resource to share with anyone suffering any kind of adversity, not just physical suffering.
