Overview
This is the true love story of Joni and her husband of 30 years, Ken Tada. A love story showing what it truly means for a man and a woman to live in love in sickness and in health.

Even the honeymoon wasn t easy. Did Ken realize what he was getting into when he proposed to Joni, a quadriplegic woman? As their marriage years moved on, Ken became increasingly overwhelmed by the never-ceasing demands of caring for Joni, who begins to experience chronic, extreme, nightmarish pain. Ken sinks into depression, and the couple finds themselves on parallel tracks in life, married and living under the same roof but drifting apart emotionally.

But as they fight for their marriage and find their way through the mazes of depression and pain, they wrap their two lives around their rock Jesus.

During Ken s denial of Joni s diagnosis, and Joni s thoughts of how wonderful a quick exit to heaven would be, they experience a personal visitation with the savior you will never forget."

Ken Tada and Joni Eareckson have been married for more than 30 years. This book, written in third person with longtime Eareckson collaborator Larry Libby, tells the story of their relationship. It is a story of commitment and devotion despite hardships and obstacles unimaginable to most married couples. Eareckson was already a quadriplegic with a ministry to the disabled when she met Tada, a high school teacher and coach. As they settle into married life, Tada is relegated to being a peripheral character, not only by Joni’s fans but also by her staff and, at times it seems, Joni herself. Despite frustrations, depression, and the physical labor involved in caring for a handicapped spouse, Tada is determinedly committed to his wife. Interestingly, Joni reveals that while they “loved each other,” they did not fall “in love” until nearly three decades into their marriage. The longevity of this relationship is a testimony to the couple’s faithfulness; they never gave up on each other, or on God. Agent: Robert Wolgemuth, Wolgemuth & Associates. (Apr.)
