To make God into a personal friend that binds two people together against great odds is a goal that all couples should have. I cried reading the book because their love for each other through knowing God so intimately really touched me. I don't cry that easily.
These two people have a Godly faith and love for each other , Ken put himself in a situation where strength , love for God and Joni were foremost, With her disability but she never let that stop her. Praise God for Ladies like her, and true and honest men like Ken. God Bless you both in your, marriage and in your ministry.
I thought it was an interesting read and gave insight into how their faith impacted the real difficulties of their marriage...but I was a bit disappointed..it was a bit predictable..I do love the ministry of Joni..I guess I had very high expectation.
What a Love story it is... Joni is a quadriplegic due to a diving accident at the age of 17 and has been serving the LORD with everything she does. Ken is her husband and a man who is doing the LORD's work with Joni. Joni writes about her diving accident, chronic pain, cancer and her love for the LORD. Ken tells about his depression, his love for his wife and the LORD's mission he endures everyday. You might think this book will be heavy and filled with fluffy drama, you will be mistaken. This is a love story of two people on a mission to serve GOD the way he wants them to do the work for him. It is a light read that is uplifting and makes you smile. It covers the hard days that Joni and Ken go through of the daily routines, but the hard times are the heart of this story. Joni, being in the media, famous and always being in the eye of the public to have a happy and Godly life has bad days and bad times. This book has GOD written all over it. This is the story that love is all about, through sickness and health, richer or poorer, till death do you part and it truly does show what marriage is all about when you stay true to what GOD has put on you to do with your life for him.
I loved this book and when I finished, I wanted to give it to my husband and make him read it. It is what life is all about we all go through daily trials and tribulations, and this book really hits home as to why we are here on earth. I recommend this short read to everyone!! You will not be let down of the story of this book.
