Format: Hardcover
Like many Christian, I have long known of the life and ministry of Joni, who has taken her tragic diving accident that left her a quadriplegic and turned it into a ministry reaching out to the disabled for Christ. What I didn't know much about is her marriage, so when this book popped up on my Amazon Vine list, I decided I had to read it.

As you can imagine, her marriage to Ken has had good and bad times. The book actually starts with her diagnosis with breast cancer just a couple of years ago and then flashes back to them meeting, falling in love, getting married, and what happened when the daily routine of caring for Joni got to be too much for Ken. While he took his vows seriously, he did begin to withdraw. But that's not the end of the story as God used a book and good friends to speak to his heart and renew their relationship in ways neither of them expected.

The chronology is not always linear, but it is well marked, so you can easily follow the time line if you are paying attention. The book is written third person, but the details are still vivid and real as if it were told first person. This style does allow for switching points of view, something that often bugs me, but works in this case because it is handled skillfully. And we really get to know Ken, a man who I've always admired for the role he took, but all the more so now for his honesty in the pages of the book.

I pretty much expect that as I read the book, but here's what I didn't expect. God used the lessons He taught them to teach me as well. I am single, and no one in my life is in a wheelchair, so I didn't really expect much that would apply to me. Instead, I was struck by their faith and commitment to God.

I'm not sure what I expected when I bought this book. I suppose I anticipated a roses round the door type romance story.
What I found was a story of real life love and hurt.
I found echoes of my own marriage trials. I found hope that God is still interests in our marriage and praying for my husband and I is not futile.
I also am assured Jesus is more than the power cord and I'm not an iphone

Hard to imagine this is a true life story. Joni is a very courageous woman. She's been thru so much & is lucky to have a dedicated husband. Her faith is keeping her going. A truly remarkable & inspiring story.

Good stuff, if they can do it, we should be able to, a really easy read, in the English writing sense, challenging for all the right reasons, and the light of Jesus shines right through. To Ken and Joni, well done and thank you for sharing real deep issues, for being so brutally honest, it's so very encouraging and helps so much.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Joni and Ken have been very open and honest, which I appreciate very much. God is glorified in this book. I would recommend it to anyone, especially to those with a disability, and those going through hard times.

This is a very challenging book about the stickability of a marriage through thick and thin, and how it has overcome very difficult physical problems with faith in Jesus
