"...in sickness and in health..." A truly inspiring story, I expected a good love story but it was truly better than I ever expected. I appreciated the candid real life problems they have gone through and are still facing with courage, honesty and the strength that can only come from the Lord. It puts a new perspective on my marriage that with the Lord all things are really possible and He will give us the love to conquer. I have added Joni and Ken to my prayer list.
I read the very first Joni book in 1980-81. Then I went on to read 'A Step Further' (her second book), which was an amazing book as Joni shared her frustrations and growth in God. As the years passed I read some of her devotionals and then another favorite, 'When God weeps,' was also excellent... I have seen her movie (by World wide pictures) multiple times and have heard her speak in my area in person at a seminar. This book, 'Joni and Ken, an untold love story,' is one that came into my life when I was struggling with being a mom of a son with mental health challenges, and provided exactly the Godly hope and spirit-filled medicine that I needed. This book I believe is her best one yet, and is so partly because of Ken Tada's humility and obedience to the Lord as he grows in God, as God's man -- this journey is detailed in this book. As always, Joni speaks with candor and grace; and Ken provides humor, love, and an amazing godly love for Joni that is humbling... Any Christian that is willing to have an ear to hear can learn, grow, and best of all feel God's love from this very superbly told story. I will be reading this story as a resource when hurting-many times again to remind myself of God's great love, not only for Joni and Ken, but for me too!This book is great for couples for singles who are struggling with any type of pain in their life. Just reading the list of folks who endorse this book is pretty incredible and really speaks to the testimony within its pages.
