Suddenly, this athletic, independent young girl is trapped in a body that will not move. Paralyzed from the shoulders down, she finds herself no longer independent, but fully dependent on the care of others for the simplest of tasks. Things we take for granted like wiping away tears, blowing your own nose or brushing your hair - now on someone else's time table, not your own.
Understandably, this turn of events shakes her faith as she shakes her mental fists at God for dashing all her hopes and dreams for the future. Failed romances, rocky friendships, family heartaches - Joni holds nothing back in this insightful view into her world.
Through her emotional and spiritual failings, the author shares her growth and understanding of God's plan for her life and the lives of others. Using her mouth to draw and paint, the author became an established artist long before people realized that the artist whose work they were admiring was completely paralyzed and unable to use her hands. This revelation thrust her into celebrity where she has been able to make more of an impact on the lives of others than she would have ever been able to have accomplished prior to her injury.
Through her charity, Joni & Friends, the author has provided for wheelchairs for the disabled around the world and opened the doors of opportunity to wheelchair bound people everywhere.Read more ›
I read the book "Joni" and I think it's much better than the movie because it explains in much more details everything that she went through. Joni is a great writer and reading her books is a very pleasant experience!!!
I am also a quadriplegic, and Joni has brought me closer to God by her movie, books, radio programs, website, etc ... I can relate to her when it comes to how it is to live with a disability, so what she says and writes does reach me!!!
I do recommend the book "Joni" to everyone, disabled or not!! It tells the story of a young woman who did overcome a personal tragedy, found a way to keep living and now she is a happy person who helps so many people!!
As she said somewhere ..... " There are many things which are more important than walking"
