    Would you listen to A Place of Healing again? Why?

    I enjoyed listening to


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joni Eeareckson Tada talks opening about the chronic pain that she experiences on a daily basis, and how she must live day by day in dependence upon God. She shares many other stories about adults and children who are confined to a wheelchair due to their disability, and their stories of courage and faith in God are inspiring.


    What does Joni Eareckson Tada bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Joni narrates this book, and she does it in a conversational way that makes you feel as if you were sitting with her at her home, as she pours out her heart and shares the wisdom that she has learned through suffering. She sings a few short songs, which I have to say make this book precious. To hear her sing to the Lord through her pain is a special gift that she gives to us.


    Any additional comments?

    Joni talks about the Sovereignty of God over out trials, and how He works all things together for good. Working all things together for good sometimes means that He does not take the trial away. Joni shares how in the early days of her paralysis she prayed continually that God would heal her. She now sees the countless people who have been helped through her ministry because God chose not to heal her. One thing that really struck me in this book was when she talked about taking your eyes off your own problems and helping others. She gave examples of people she met who lay aside their own daily challenges to offer assistance to others. This book is not just for those who suffer from chronic pain or a disability. I was greatly encouraged by this book and it gave me a better perspective on how a Christian should view any kind of suffering in trials.

    "An Encouraging Listen"

    What a joy this audio is! I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to Joni talk about her life in such a positive way. This is such a practical book to help you to carry on with your life in spite of your circumstances, something I think Joni does extremely well.

    What I liked about it most, is that she is speaking from experience, and not giving pat answers to questions she doesn?t know how to answer. I?ve enjoyed hearing her whole story, from when she had the accident over 40 years ago, to how she fights to keep focused on God everyday. She is incredibly honest about how she feels each day, dealing with chronic pain, and how she chooses to give God the glory. She also tells you how you can do the same in your own life, whatever you are going through.

    The stories about the disabled people around the world she has visited and brought wheelchairs to, through her charity ?Wheels For The World?, are so encouraging too.

    Joni has a beautiful voice whether reading or singing during this audio, which really does make it a pleasure to listen to.

    Thanks to christianaudio.com?s reviewer?s program for this copy
