it was amazing
Read in July, 2009

I'm not giving five stars for writing style, which was simple and straightforward and plenty good. What I'm really giving five stars for is the incredible material. Mrs. Tada has lived a life full of adversity AND HOPE thanks to the work of Christ in her heart. What a testimony to the fact that God uses the weak, small and insignificant to accomplish his purposes (as seen most spectacularly in the poor and nomadic life of Christ, followed by his shameful death, and then his stunning victory in resurrection). Mrs. Tada could easily have become bitter and shriveled in her wheelchair; instead she has blessed countless lives through her writing, artwork and fundraising to send wheelchairs all over the world and advance the cause of the physically and developmentally disabled. She is a hero because Christ has made her one. This is the most uplifting thing I've read in some time.
