Discover a bond that has seen the worst and claimed the best. With sixteen pages of photos, peek into Joni and Ken's challenges firsthand. Discover God's immeasurable grace along the way, as their story inspires and enriches your own relationships.
A love untold. Until now.
Ken underestimated the challenges of marrying a woman with quadriplegia. Even the honeymoon wasn't easy. Through their years together, Ken becomes increasingly overwhelmed by the unceasing demands of caring for a woman with chronic, extreme, nightmarish pain. He sinks into depression. Though living under the same roof, they drift apart. In the midst of their deepest struggles with depression and pain, Ken and Joni return to the one true answer to their struggles. One that is far from a denial of Joni's diagnosis or thoughts of how wonderful a quick exit to heaven would be. In their darkest hour, Ken and Joni encounter a heavenly visitation that changes their lives-and maybe yours too-forever.
Joni Eareckson Tada has known the grace of God for 30 years after being paralysed from the neck down in a diving accident. Joni is president of JAF Ministries, an organization that accelerates Christian ministry among people with disabilities. She is also host of 'Joni and Friends', a daily radio program in the USA operating out of the International Disability Centre and a sought after conference speaker.
She is the author of more than 30 books, including the bestsellers Diamonds in the Dust, Heaven, and More Precious Than Silver.
In 2003 she was given the Gold Medallion Award for her book When God Weeps and in 2004 for co-authoring Hymns for a Kid's Heart, Volume 1. Her award winning and best-selling autobiography, Joni, was adapted as a full-length feature film. Tada also serves in an advisory capacity to many Institutes concerned with disability, writing and evangelism worldwide. She has been given many awards and holds several honourary doctorates. Joni and her husband, Ken, live in Southern California.
Ken Tada recently retired from thirty-two years of teaching and has come on board with Joni and Friends to serve as Director of Ministry Development. He is also a member of the Board of Directors and in 2001 received Family Life Ministries Robertson McQuilkin Award honoring 'The Courageous Love of a Marriage Covenant Keeper.'
