Publisher's Description

With more than 200,000 copies sold, Diamonds in the Dust has become a devotional favorite. Joni shows us precious jewels of biblical truth that lie scattered amidst the gravel of life’s dusty road. “The book you hold in your hands is my treasure trove of diamond chips I’ve collected over the years,” says Joni. “I’ve carefully selected favorite gems, ones I’ve often held to the light, turned this way and that to admire their beauty, diamonds that have made me rich in faith and wealthy in hope.” These 366 meditations uncover a wealth of promise, of eternal truths waiting to transform the events of our lives into facets that catch and reflect God’s glory. Written from the perspective of a woman who traverses life in a wheelchair, this book wipes away the surface grit of suffering and circumstances to reveal the radiant hope that each of us can claim. Diamonds in the Dust takes theology and gives it flesh, breath, and emotion. With eloquence, Joni draws from her own trials and triumphs to enrich us all with the wisdom of Scripture. But she’s not the only one whose everyday life holds such potential. “Look down at your feet,” Joni writes. “The path sparkles. God has placed diamonds in the dust of your road too!”

    This book is beautiful- it just feels good to hold it. It is a thick book, a 365 Day devotional, with a lovely cover and a beautiful title.

    Diamonds in the Dust, 365 Sparkling Devotionals. The title comes from a woman with a two year old daughter who was undergoing chemotherapy. Joni asked this little girls' Mother, whom she had met at a prayer meeting, How do you walk through this? The woman responded with tears in her eyes that God was walking them on a long and dusty road, but when they were brought low that is when they found diamonds in the dust. That story touched Joni, and she wrote this book as a collection of her favorite Diamonds, ones she has often held up to the light.

    This book is full of Scripture, each verse is a Diamond and each diamond's beauty made me gasp more than once. I rediscovered beautiful verses that, like diamonds, I had lost in the dust of life.

    Each one page devotion has a Diamond Scripture and a story from Joni that helps us meditate on the Scripture. Her stories and quotes give us rich theology lived out in daily life. She ends each devotion with a prayer from her heart. Every book written to exalt Christ must do what this devotional does, convict and comfort. This book has been called her best book, and Joni has written a lot, blessing the Body of Christ with her stories of Christ's faithfulness, so calling this book her best says a lot about it! If this is the only book of Joni's that you read, you will be blessed. I hope to read many more. I was blessed to receive this book free from Zondervan.

    If any woman could be a Titus Two woman, it would probably be Joni Tada. Mrs. Tada has known suffering, and she has known the care of God in her suffering. She is an example to us all. She has reached out her hands to those in need, and has been a voice for those who need a voice. Most of all, she has been the one who can honestly assure others that Jesus was a Man of Sorrows, who knew Grief, and that He never leaves us in our pain, our cry never falls on deaf ears, and our sorrow is never wasted. Joni is married to her beloved husband Ken, and she never stops doing the work God has given her.

    I vaguely remembered Joni from an autobiographical book I'd seen many years ago, so when I received this book from a friend, I was intrigued and amazed. My gut reaction upon viewing the cover was, " How can this lovely woman be quadriplegic?." I had recently been asking God the universal question of "How do I deal with suffering?"Surely God placed this book in my hands as an answer. Sometimes when we are suffering, and we see someone else whose dealing with a mountain of suffering, we feel guilty and ashamed that we can't even deal with the little molehill God has given us.In "Diamonds in the Dust", JET not only doesn't condemn us for not being able to cope with our "molehills", she gives us a model of how God's love and grace have transformed her suffering into jewels of truth and wisdom that others can use to draw closer to God. This book was a gift to me from 3 friends. Pat, Joni, and Jesus.
