Looking for an inspirational book to read?
I heard the story of Joni Eareckson Tada years ago. I have watched her ministry to provide wheelchairs throughout the world. I smiled when I heard she found love and married Ken. What a courageous woman she is. I admire her willingness to share her experiences and its lessons with us.
Joni and Ken – an Untold Love Story is their latest book just released by Zondervan.
Yes it is a love story but not exactly a “happily ever after” one. Joni and Ken’s 30 years of marriage has been full of challenges for both of them, but a path that has made them stronger. But like most of life, it is the day-to-day routines and problems that wears us down.
“In reality, living with quadriplegia was never normal and even the most compelling of international escapades began to fade after a while For Ken what didn’t fade was the daily-nightly-daily-nightly drudgery of Joni’s disability routines.”
Ken and Joni are honest and open about their ups and downs of their marriage. They may have felt fragile at times, but never lost their hope in God. This book brims with prayer and witness that marriage has three people: two humans and one Almighty Lord.
One of my passions is praying and supporting caregivers. This book will give the reader a real glimpse into the emotional side of caregiving and the demands emotionally, physically and spiritually they endure.
And this couple has faced problems together: Joni’s paralysis, Ken’s depression, unexpected overwhelming bouts of pain, cancer, mastectomy, chemotherapy, and pneumonia. Yet they stick to their commitment to one another and to loving and serving God.
Neat book to read!
