Holiness in Hidden Places by Joni Eareckson Tada

Holiness in Hidden places is a devotional thought book that incorporates Joni's life experiences, Scripture, songs, and her artwork. I appreciate Joni’s book because she presents herself as a human who makes mistakes and struggles with sin. She (and we) has to daily commit herself to the Lord because flesh fights us all. She is one I could easily put upon a pedestal because of all she has endured physically for most of her life, but she makes it clear that she isn’t perfect just forgiven and that she more than anything wants her life to count for God.

I too want my life to make a difference in God’s kingdom not because of anything amazing that I have done, but because God was able to work through me and my weaknesses to bring glory to HIMSELF. I fall short more than I care to confess, but God isn’t giving up on me and I’m holding tight to HIM.

You can write Joni at JAF Ministries, PO Box 3333, Agoura Hills, CA 91301 or go to her website for more information.

This is one book I will have to get. I finished Joni's book "Secret Strength" last month, and I love her insights and way of delivery. Thanks for posting this book synopsis!
