It is amazing to share with Joni this phase in her life. Despite her suffering she encourages us to keep trusting God even when you don't understand. We pray for you Joni, God uses you as an inspiration to many.
As a Christian with family members in need of physical healing this book offered real food for thought. The conviction of Joni that our suffering has a purpose and sometimes is to encourage others more than ourselves truly moved my heart. After a read like this one I can continue in my prayer life believing that God is answering in ways I cannot imagine. When Joni tells how her suffering has brought others to Christ my heart is humbled and I move on knowing God is in this regardless of what I see before my eyes. It was an encouragement. To see her heart and dedication to bring others to Christ fuels my heart!
This book has great insight for anyone struggling.

What great insight and help for anyone struggling with pain, illnesses or just about any difficulty. Beautifully addresses the age old "human" question of "why"? I am so grateful that Joni continues to generously share her insight...a continued blessing.
Joni's honesty really impressed me. She has faced the tough issues many Christians have faced (pain and suffering) but were afraid to voice. The book is her journey, but it may be that of many others, and the outcome glorifies God. It makes our struggles seem like nothing compared to hers, and yet she has allowed the Lord to overcome. I highly recommend this reading.
