Product Description

Joni's story is not a story about a miraculous healing, it's not even a story about a tragic accident. It's a story of an ordinary girl who shows how God's power transforms lives. Healing may have been the amazing miracle that didn't happen but Joni's ongoing work with thousands of disabled people throughout the world is a miracle in itself. This biography for kids ages 9-14 will teach them the importance of making the best of even the most devastating situations.

Publisher's Description

Joni Eareckson is a well-known Christian speaker and author from America but there was a day when she was a teenage girl in a bathing costume with nothing on her mind but boys, make up and her beloved horse, Tumbleweed.

However, all that changed one morning when an innocent dive turned into a tragic accident. Joni's story is a wonderful testimony to God's grace and power in someone's life.

Healing may have been an amazing miracle that didn't happen but Joni's ongoing work with thousands of disabled people throughout the world is a miracle in itself.

    Joni's story is wonderful but we felt that it was not appropriate for children ages 8-12 like it stated. The content discussed boy girl relationships and temptations and that is not what we were looking for in our age children.
