Hundreds of people came to the Library to meet Joni Eareckson Tada, who shared how God brought spiritual healing to her life in the wake of a paralyzing accident.
Joni spoke to the crowd before signing copies of her newest book, "Beside Bethesda: 31 Days Toward Deeper Healing." Her husband, Ken, is on the left.
People of all ages heard a powerful message from Joni about how Jesus Christ gets her through each day.
When Joni became a quadriplegic at age 17, she was overcome by anger and depression and attempted suicide. "God, if I can’t die," she prayed, "show me how to live."

Many in the crowd identified with Joni's disappointment in God for letting her suffer. But they were encouraged by her faith. “I would rather be in this chair knowing Jesus than to stand on my feet without Him," she has said.
