I’ve led the music for Joni & Friends’ Family Camp for a number of years now. And each year is an indescribable blessing. There is so much to learn from those who deal with disabilities. Joni Eareckson Tada has set the example of dealing with disability in an “honest to God” kind of way that I think pleases Him. Recently, Joni learned she now has breast cancer. In the late 60’s she was paralyzed. Her new book deals with the mystery of suffering and the sovereignty of God. You can download the first hour of the book (being read by her) at ChristianAudio.com. Read below for more detail.
In this eloquent account of her current struggle with physical pain, Joni Eareckson Tada offers her perspective on divine healing, God’s purposes, and what it means to live with joy. Over four decades ago, a diving accident left Joni a quadriplegic. Today, she faces a new battle: unrelenting pain.The ongoing urgency of this season in her life has caused Joni to return to foundational questions about suffering and God’s will. A Place of Healing is not an ivory tower treatise on suffering. Its an intimate look into the life of a mature woman of God.Whether readers are enduring physical pain, financial loss, or relational grief, Joni invites them to process their suffering with her. Together, they will navigate the distance between God’s magnificent yes and heartbreaking no and find new hope for thriving in between.
