A Devotional for Those Who are Suffering

Joni Tada knows about suffering first hand. After suffering a diving accident as a teenager, she has been a quadriplegic for almost 50 years. While the suffering hasn’t been pleasant, it hasn’t dimmed her faith in God. In fact, it has strengthened it.

The daily devotionals consist of a short reflection with often a Bible reference and a short prayer. They cover topics such as fear, hope, suffering, disappointment and others. The reflections are short, perfect for anyone with limited time, or for someone who has difficulty reading for extended periods.

Joni draws extensively on her own background particularly depression and chronic pain. I enjoyed the book. It is uplifting to read the reflections even if you’re not dealing with a serious illness or other life crisis.

I recommend this book for anyone living with a serious handicap. It would make a wonderful gift for a year’s worth of reading.

I received this book from Handlebar for this review.
