Publisher's Summary

This is the award-winning story of a young woman who triumphed over devastating odds to touch countless lives the world over with the healing message of Christ. In a split second on a hot July afternoon, a diving accident transformed the life of Joni Eareckson Tada forever. She went from being an active young woman to facing everyday in a wheelchair. In this unforgettable autobiography, Joni reveals each step of her struggle to accept her disability and discover the meaning of her life. The hard-earned truths she discovers and the special ways God reveals his love are testimonies to faith's triumph over hardship and suffering.
The new 25th Anniversary edition of this award-winning story, which has more than 3,000,000 copies in print in over 40 languages, will introduce a new generation of readers to the incredible greatness of God's power and mercy at work in those who fully give their hearts and lives to him.
Joni has written an afterword in which she describes the events that have occurred in her life since the book's publication in 1976, including her marriage to Ken Tada and the expansion of her worldwide ministry to families affected by disability.

Inspiring story...

Wonderful, moving and inspiring story, read with real sensitivity and skill by the author. I found myself looking for extra minutes to listen to more to see what happened.

The book I've been waiting for.

This isn't a story of pity but of joy. What it means to understand no matter what our physical condition, we have a purpose in this life. I have been through many of Joni's early experiences of being paralysed in hospital. The feelings of hopelessness and vulnerability. It took Joni's book and the spiritual help from two loving cousins to realise that my life isn't over yet. I still can have purpose and meaning in this life.
