Includes photos and illustrations by Joni. Joni Eareckson Tada was the victim of a diving accident that left her paralyzed from neck to feet.

The spiritual principles that this woman relies on are useful for every reader. The story of Joni will have a special meaning for those who have trouble accepting the difficulties of life.
