Pearls of Great Price by Joni Eareckson Tada was the daily devotional book that I used for 2017. This book was just what I needed for a challenging year. Joni Eareckson Tada has led a difficult life as a quadriplegic since 1967. The words in this book come from a person that knows difficulties and challenges and that is what made me love her words even more. She shares her heart and her love for Christ in a very personal way because she knows what a difficult life is like.
