From Publishers Weekly
When a diving accident in 1967 paralyzed her from the neck down, Tada, then a teenager, questioned God and life itself. Decades later, the author and founder of Joni and Friends, a ministry for the disabled, writes from her wheelchair, [T]here are more important things in life than walking. In her latest book, Tada jumps back in time to reveal her thoughts as a young quadriplegic, then pleads with her teenage self and the reader to be patient and hopeful. In each chapter, Tada offers a ruby of her own hard-won wisdom (e.g., God may not always provide healing; courage in the midst of suffering is a testament to God's love; God gives grace in tough times) and encourages readers to dialogue with God to understand the purpose for hardships. Tada then supports this argument about suffering with Scripture, folding some verses into the chapters and compiling others into three appendices. Those who are ill, struggling or hopeless may be comforted by her testimony and perhaps roused to pray and perform good deeds while awaiting relief in whatever form it may take. (Mar.)

Heaven has a special room for Joni and Ken. A room large enough to contain the crowds of people who, like me, want to tell them, “Thank you.” And all of us---friends, readers, listeners---will take our turn, though we already know what Joni and Ken will say. They will point to Christ: “Thank Him.” -- Max Lucado
“When I think of what Joni has endured, and then I hear her talk about loving Jesus more, I want to stop and listen to everything she has to say.” -- John Eldredge, Author

If you have questions about the tough stuff of life, or the "hard things" in life, then get this book; learn from someone who has been through them and flourished in spite of them.
More than forty years later, thru trials, disappointments, challenges, and fear, this amazing woman has produced her best book yet. A lifetime in a wheelchair has enabled her to share with us, some of the wisdom she has acquired about her faith in God.
Along with her autobiography, "The God I Love", Joni, an accomplished artist, musician, author of many inspirational books, is also an international disability advocate. She once told God "I can't live like this. If You won't let me die, then show me how to live". He did. She listened. The world loves this beautiful woman.
Reader, if you need more proof that our creator God indeed exists, check out this book and the resource pages Joni provides in back of the book that will inspire you to rise above your present circumstances. Joni's lifetime of wisdom "lifts us higher" and she has learned how to do it as a quadriplegic. You cannot help but love her and all those who have assisted her over the decades, including her devoted husband.
