John Knight, Director for Development of Desiring God Ministries, was kind enough to give us several copies of Just the Way I Am for our resource table this weekend. If you have experienced disability or know someone with a disability I would highly encourage you to pick up a copy.
They are free for the taking on our Resource Table in the foyer of the church.
A description of the book is posted at Desiring God‘s website as follows…
Through photographs, Bible passages, and her own story, Krista Horning’s book tells of a wise and sovereign God who turns all things for good, including disability.
Born with Apert syndrome that has required more than 60 surgeries and countless hours of therapy, Krista and her family understand the severe pain and suffering associated with disability. Yet they also experience God’s grace and are able to live with hope in God because they are anchored in God’s word.
From the Foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada:
With a tenderness tempered by her own physical challenges, Krista considers it her life’s calling to lovingly lead kids with disabilities beyond their questions to discover just how wise and sovereign God really is.
