Even in Our Suffering

A diving accident forty-five years ago left Joni Eareckson Tada a quadriplegic. As she has learned to trust God she has experienced His faithfulness in profound ways. This video, updating viewers on her life since facing breast cancer two years ago, provide a poignant view into the life of this woman who has trusted God through years of intense suffering. It is also a testimony to God's faithfulness, even in our suffering.

Joni's book, A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Sufferings, Pain and God's Sovereignty, "offers her perspective on divine healing, God's purposes, and what it means to live with joy" (Amazon). It's a book that allows the reader to grapple with the really tough issues of pain and suffering, right along with Joni, and continually points them to the Father's heart.
