Joni's story is not a story about a miraculous healing, it's not even a story about a tragic accident - it's the story of an ordinary girl who showed how God's power transforms lives. This book features prayers and topics for further thought.
For Joni diving off a rock was the nearest thing to flying. Standing on the edge she eased slowly up onto her toes--then, flexing her long legs she jumped--forcing her body up and out before, gracefully, it punctured the cool, dark, still, surface--but as Joni's blonde hair flashed in the sunlight to disappear beneath the water something happened to change all that. A tragic accident meant that Joni was paralysed from the neck down. Yet Joni's story was only just beginning, one of an ordinary girl who shows how God's power transforms lives. This title includes a study and prayer guide.
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.
