Description

Joni Eareckson is a well-known Christian speaker and author from America but there was a day when she was a teenage girl in a bathing costume with nothing on her mind but boys, make up and her beloved horse, Tumbleweed.

However, all that changed one morning when an innocent dive turned into a tragic accident. Joni's story is a wonderful testimony to God's grace and power in someone's life.

Healing may have been an amazing miracle that didn't happen but Joni's ongoing work with thousands of disabled people throughout the world is a miracle in itself.

Reviews

"If you like this, you'll love this: Ten Girls who changed the World by Irene Howat. This book includes a chapter on Joni Eareckson Tada that is aimed at a 8-12 readership."

Catherine MacKenzie, Author and CF4K Editor


"TRY ANOTHER TRAILBLAZER: Corrie Ten Boom - The Watchmaker's Daughter, by Jean Watson. This title is an ideal companion volume to Swimming against the Tide. Corrie was one of Joni's own heroines and the two women knew each other well before Corrie's death."
