Joni's Storyby Joni Eareckson Tada, Joe Musser (Designed by)
At age seventeen, Joni Eareckson broke her neck in a diving accident. She would never move her arms or legs again. Joni had to endure long, painful months in the hospital. She could no longer do simple tasks like brushing her own hair or feeding herself. And she had to face tough questions. Would God heal her? What should she do about her boyfriend? Strengthened by her faith, her family, and her friends, Joni learned to draw with her mouth, to speak to large audiences even to drive a specially-equipped van! And God had even greater things in store . . . Joni's Story will not only inspire the physically challenged, but will also help healthy kids appreciate the special gifts the handicapped have to offer.
