Publisher's Description

It’s not what I lost. It’s what I’ve found. I was only seventeen, just a girl, when God asked me for everything I had … my health, my hopes, my independence, my dreams, my freedom, and my mobility. He took it all. I was so angry with Him that I tried to push Him away. God relentlessly held me more closely. Looking back, forty years later, I understand that God has changed and healed me—my heart and my mind—in the most unexpected ways, giving me rubies of His wisdom about an unbending faith and an experience of His mercy I can now tell you about. Was it a fair exchange, my freedom and no wheelchair for the rubies of wisdom I’ve been given? Absolutely. In this I have learned at the feet of the Lord Jesus, embracing the way that God heals us, even when we rage at Him in anger, fear, and despair. This book is not about what I lost in that diving accident so long ago. It’s about the wisdom He’s given me to live life victoriously in the face of disappointments and challenges that we all face.

Endorsements

Heaven has a special room for Joni and Ken. A room large enough to contain the crowds of people who, like me, want to tell them, “Thank you.” And all of us—friends, readers, listeners—will take our turn, though we already know what Joni and Ken will say. They will point to Christ: “Thank Him.”
— Max Lucado, bestselling author and minister

Joni’s remarkable life and ministry have been a source of huge inspiration to me. I’ve worked very closely with Joni, and I can tell you her heart beats as God’s does. All of us can learn from her. I recommend this powerful and inspiring book.
— Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship

“When I think of what Joni has endured, and then I hear her talk about loving Jesus more, I want to stop and listen to everything she has to say.”
— John Eldredge, Author, Wild at Heart

Publisher's Weekly

When a diving accident in 1967 paralyzed her from the neck down, Tada, then a teenager, questioned God and life itself. Decades later, the author and founder of Joni and Friends ministry for the disabled writes from her wheelchair that “there are more important things in life than walking.” In her latest book, Tada jumps back in time to reveal her thoughts as a young quadriplegic, then pleads with her teenage self and the reader to be patient and hopeful. In each chapter, Tada offers a “ruby” of her own hard-won wisdom (e.g., God may not always provide healing; courage in the midst of suffering is a testament to God’s love; God gives grace in tough times) and encourages readers to dialogue with God to understand the purpose for hardships. Tada then supports this argument about suffering with Scripture, folding some verses into the chapters and compiling others into three appendices. Those who are ill, struggling or hopeless may be comforted by her testimony and perhaps roused to pray and perform good deeds while awaiting relief in whatever form it may take. (Mar.)

    This book would be worth the full price and it is being sold at a great discount. Joni Tada has a deep relationship with the Lord and in this book points the reader to insights that she went through much suffering to learn. She also adds the contrast between where she was in her walk with the Lord at the time of her accident and then how He grew her through the suffering. I bought a copy for our church library, one for my sister and an extra to also give away after buying one for myself. Don't miss getting at least one copy of this book!

    A poster caption from the book says it all. "God hasn't promised me happy endings to every life situation, but He has assured me of greater faith!"

    There is no doubt that Joni loves the Lord. But it is amazing what God has done with her life. She is a miracle. God has given her talents beyond those of people to whom say they love God, but their life doesn't show it. Joni's life does show how much she loves her heavenly Father. As years have flown by, God has graced her with talent of so many kinds.

    Her adult life has been dedicated to please Him, and to serve Him in any way she can.
