Joni Earickson Tada--a hercules in the realm of suffering

 Joni Eareckson Tada is most amazing--famous even--for her inner healing and overcoming spirit.    For anyone who reads this blog who hasn't heard of her, let me summarize.  As an athletic teen, she was paralyzed in a tragic swimming accident in 1967.  Her wheelchair became her platform. With her exceptional gifts as artist, musician, writer, and speaker, she has spent her life advocating for the handicapped.  For a more complete biographical sketch, check out the Wikipedia article about her.

 She wrote A Place of Healing in 2010 as she was facing new levels of pain.  During the same year she confronted cancer.  In this book she shares her secrets for overcoming suffering.  These are not trite answers, but solid weapons forged in the fire and pressure of her own experience.

A Place of Healing is available as an audio book at Christian Audio.  Print versions are also available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Christian Book Distributors.
