    1. Listened to this on the way to work but took this few notes.Joni used an awesome story of Perlman performing a concert during which a string broke. He continued the symphony, re-fingering the whole thing. When he finished and the crowd exploded with applause he stated that a true artist takes what is left and makes a unique, beautiful sound/story that couldn't be made if something hadn't been broken/taken away.God doesn't say "be thankful." He says "give thanks."Don't ask God to change your situ [...]


    2. I bought this book for my Kindle while in bed struggling with an illness. I live with chronic pain as well. It was really helpful to me. There was so much that Joni said that I liked, I started out trying to underline it all on my Kindle. Between my Kindle freezing (which they do when you underline a lot) and finding so many good points to underline, I finally gave up! I would have underlined half the book! This book was a good reminder to me of God's love and care, even when it seems He isn't a [...]


    3. "Pain is a strange, dark companion, but a companion- if only because it has passed through God's inspecting hand. It's an unwelcome guest, but still a guest. I know that it drives me to a nearer, more intimate place of fellowship with Jesus, and so I take pain as though I were taking the left hand of God." ~Joni Tada, chapter one in A Place of Healing. In this book, written in 2010, Joni Tada shares how her life and ministry took a new turn. After forty years in a wheelchair, Joni lived each day [...]


    4. As my illness progresses and death draws nearer, this book (a type I always avoid), was just what I needed. Hope, spirit, resilience and examples are just what I needed to get through my next stage in treatment I listened to it on audible while my body recuperated and found that my body's recuperation was accompanied by the spiritual strength this book provided.



    5. I read about half of this book and stopped reading for several months. I am so glad I finally finished because the stories about her wheelchair donation crusade are worth the whole book (and they are in the last quarter of the book!). Good read if you or someone you love needs healing or has a disability.


    6. MY REVIEW:This is the raw, honest, and vulnerable sharing from Joni's heart and from the Word of God about suffering. It's a powerful look at how God is a loving God and has plans for us to bring glory to Him and grow in our relationship with Him.I enjoyed Joni's amazing perspective, steady faithfulness, and open honesty. She addresses the issue of Healing Services in a kind, yet biblically sound way. After reading this book you will have a better appreciation for your life as it is and for all [...]


    7. "Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain, and God's Sovereignty" is an apt subtitle for this book, for just like Jacob wrestled with God many centuries ago, Joni has been wrestling with God for decades, ever since she took that dive into a too shallow lake as a teenager and became a quadriplegic. Joni doesn't speak on suffering & healing as a lofty theologian, or as some shallow social commentator, but as a real woman who has walked through real suffering and pain for all her adult l [...]


    8. Wow, Joni is an amazing woman, and this book is fantastic for anyone struggling with health challenges. She has the ability to look at situations God has placed her in and praise him for his work through it. This book was super encouraging to me, and make me praise God for the capacities I have and for the challenges he has given me, that he may use me through them. I listened to it as an audiobook, but would consider re-reading it as a book too, because I'm sure I missed pieces of it by just li [...]


    9. This is the very first book I have ever listened to and it was ok. For a new Christian (not sure if I can call myself that) I did find it a bit heavy going at times but nonetheless inspirational.



    10. I got this book during a free download promotion and just opened it out of curiosity, knowing I liked Joni but not really having a specific interest in this book. However, I soon found that it was exactly the book I didn't know I was looking for. A couple of years ago my daughter was stillborn, and since then I've often struggled with all of the various dark and bitter thoughts that attend the loss of a child. A Place of Healing is not just about physical pain or disability. It's about how we, a [...]


    11. A friend gave this to me at the beginning of the year and said it helped him while he was in the hospital. Honestly, I didn't know anything about the author and the beginning chapter felt like this was one of those syrupy, sappy, cheesy Christian books, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but I've had my fill of them and don't find them palatable or filling anymore. I set it in my backpack and thus forgot about it. Ten months later I pull it out late at my mom's house and decide to at least fini [...]


    12. The fact that Joni wrote this from the midst of her pain made this so real, so relate-able, so powerful. She wasn't through it. She couldn't see the other side. She didn't know whether there would be any relief this side of heaven. She asked, "Why?" She didn't know the answer to that question, but she knew the answers God has given her through the years. She knew that He is faithful and works all things for her good and His glory. She knew that He has a purpose for her pain and that His care for [...]


    13. An absolutely incredible, profound book. I've just finished rereading it for the 3rd or 4th time. I can't recommend it highly enough. Perhaps one of the top 10 books I've ever read in any genre. So full of wisdom. So full of joy. An awesome resource for all believers, helping us wrestle with the mystery of God's goodness, sovereignty, and the problem of pain and suffering.Joni goes beyond trite answers and shares her struggles so honestly. I can't wait to see her dancing in heaven! I know I will [...]


    14. I really appreciated this perspective on this book. Joni is writing concerning her battle with chronic pain and how to find joy and contentment in the battle. She answers questions so many of us ask in our own minds about pain and suffering. Her responses are biblical and help dispel some of the "christian" answers about faith and healing and sin. The biggest idea I came away with was that God uses suffering and pain in our lives to draw us into sweet communion relationship with Him. This book i [...]


    15. WonderfulShe is such an inspiration. This book is helpful in so many ways. No matter where you are in life she offers hope and insight to get you through. The scriptures were beautiful and as always she is a great teacher.



    16. I read my father in law's copy of this book and since he suffered with chronic, and often, severe back pain, the book was much more meaningful to me. Also, I am familiar with the author's story.



    17. This is the best thing I've read in quite a while. Everything about it was beautiful and encouraging and often tear inducing. I'm considering how many copies I should buy in order to get most everyone I know to read it.


    18. A Place of Healing is Joni's look at suffering in light of God's sovereignty and goodness. If you are unfamiliar with Joni, she is a quadriplegic who has been used by God to minister to many since her diving accident led to her paralysis. As I was struggling with this issue I wanted to hear counsel from someone who had endured suffering. That being said, I trust the Scriptures an infinite times more than I do someone's experience, so I wanted someone who would open the Word of God and deal with [...]


    19. I listened to the Audiobook version of this book, read by the author. This really helped me to get in touch with what the author was saying in the book, as the voice inflections and tones were all in the intended places and enhanced the message of the book.I highly recommend this book for everyone who calls themselves a Christian, so that we all may have a fuller understanding of the purposes of God in allowing pain and suffering in people's lives. As well as that, Joni gives us a Godly example [...]


    20. This is a personal exploration of the topic of suffering through the lens of disability and the particular illumination of chronic pain. Written by Tada at a time in her life where she was actually experiencing uncontrolled chronic pain, Tada reflects on God's presence, provision and plan for her life in trying to make sense of her trial. The introduction and early chapters were somewhat repetitive, but what person in pain is consistently logical and linear? In addition, I found, in general, (ma [...]


    21. Why does God allow pain? Is God concerned with suffering and involved in it? Plato, C.S. Lewis, Rabbi Harold Kushner, Henri Nouwen, the apostle Paul and others have all addressed these age-old questions.Instead of focusing on how God is involved in the problem of pain, Joni Eareckson Tada chooses instead in her book, A Place of Healing, to examine how God can use pain to draw her closer to Himself and lift her above her human sufferings. Joni, left a quadriplegic from a diving accident four deca [...]


    22. I received this book from my sister, Sallie, this Christmas and have finally read it! Joni is such a remarkable woman and she has a deep and abiding love for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She has lived the last forty plus years as a quadriplegic, following a tragic diving accident as a teeneager. Despite her years of living with a permanent disability that requires incredible assistance in order for her to do most anything, she continues to praise God and to do all that she can to serve and [...]


    23. I have always admired Joni Eareckson Tada and the way she has lived her life through physical struggles. This book came at an opportune time for me as I have a friend dealing with stage 4 cancer. Knowing Joni has dealt with pain made her words ring true as she wrote. I came away with a renewed and stronger admiration of her, but more importantly some clarity and peace about my friend and the trust needed for watching God's plans through this hard time. I highly recommend this book and plan on gi [...]


    24. This audio book is read by Joni and hearing her voice just brings greater depth to walking out our christian faith. Joni doesn't have all the answers, but she knows the one who does and He has been faithful to her every day. This book is Joni's testimony to God's faithfulness in the midst of pain and suffering. Her times of triumph and her authenticity about her times of tears and struggle. Authentic to the core, this book encourages one to persevere in faith in the midst of trials.


    25. Touching story of how Joni was going through a severe pain that had started in her body. It's a deep reflection on praying and accepting the sovereignty of God, and how God may not grant a prayer request but use the situation to bring blessings.


    26. Always ExcellentEncouragement for all. Joni pulls back the veil of suffering and reveals a soul dedicated to the Lord Who sustains all who seek. God bless her beyond all she could ask or think!
