One of the most inspiring evangelical Christians alive today, Joni Eareckson Tada brings comfort to thousands in her latest devotional Pearls of Great Price
. In the introduction she says, "I have experienced more than a few irritants in my life, not the least of which is four decades of quadriplegia. The twelve months during which I wrote Pearls of Great Price
was a year of pain and hardship like none other. My bones are getting old, tired, thin, and frail...and lately, it's not been easy. But God continues to give layer after layer of life-transforming grace; he has made each irritation smooth and acceptable. All because of his help and hope."
If you or someone you love could use a word of encouragement, find it here every day of the year. Each entry opens with a passage of Scripture from the NIV which is followed by a reflection from Joni. She then calls upon you to respond and offers a prayer designed to lead you closer to Christ. Discover at a deeper level the "help and hope" that can be found only in Christ through these Pearls of Great Price.
