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. Paperback.
