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.

Amazing
5 stars By Emily , Apr 29 2017
Swimming Against the Tide is a biography on the life of Joni Eareckson. Joni was a pretty teenager who loved riding horses and swimming. Sadly, she had a near fatal accident and was paralysed from the neck down. Will Joni trust that God is in control or will she grow bitter and blame God for what happened? I found this book so encouraging. Even when bad things happen, God has a plan in it all. Great for kids aged 12 and up. Join Joni as she finds out what God has in store for her life.
