Product Description

For better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health...

Anyone who has been married has said these words, or made a similar vow to their spouse. And yet, the painful reality is that half of all marriages end in divorce. Knowing this makes the marriage between Joni and Ken Eareckson Tada all the more remarkable. In their thirty years of marriage they've faced quadriplegia, depression, chronic pain and cancer together. In their weakness God has shown His strength and given them the grace to love and serve each other.

In Joni & Ken: An Untold Love Story, the Tada's share the journey of their marriage, from their first dinner date in 1980, to the present day as Joni survived breast cancer. Their story is not a love story you'll see at the movies, or read in a novel, but it's the truest kind, filled with commitment, sacrifice, and faith that defies the odds. As you read, you'll discover God's immeasurable grace to face your daily trials and to love those in your life as He does.

Publisher's Description

This is the true love story of Joni and her husband of 30 years, Ken Tada. A love story showing what it truly means for a man and a woman to live in love … in sickness and in health. 

 

Even the honeymoon wasn’t easy. Did Ken realize what he was getting into when he proposed to Joni, a quadriplegic woman? As their marriage years moved on, Ken became increasingly overwhelmed by the never-ceasing demands of caring for Joni, who begins to experience chronic, extreme, nightmarish pain. Ken sinks into depression, and the couple finds themselves on parallel tracks in life, married and living under the same roof but drifting apart emotionally.

 

But as they fight for their marriage and find their way through the mazes of depression and pain, they wrap their two lives around their rock—Jesus.

 

During Ken’s denial of Joni’s diagnosis, and Joni’s thoughts of how wonderful a quick exit to heaven would be, they experience a personal visitation with the savior you will never forget.

    Joni has inspired me since I was a teenager. I am amazed at the myriad of ways God has used her marriage and her life. God has been faithful to her every step of the way.

    "...in sickness and in health..." A truly inspiring story, I expected a good love story but it was truly better than I ever expected. I appreciated the candid real life problems they have gone through and are still facing with courage, honesty and the strength that can only come from the Lord. It puts a new perspective on my marriage that with the Lord all things are really possible and He will give us the love to conquer. I have added Joni and Ken to my prayer list.

    All of us sometimes have questions about the providence of God. Joni's life makes us realize that we do not need to have all the answers. We do need an enduring, growing faith in God.
