Just the Way I Am
God’s Good Design in Disability
A beautifully produced coffee-table style book with inspirational verses and pictures of those who have a disability. You will see God’s providence and sovereignty in lives affected and impacted by disability.
“Knowing Krista as I do, I can almost hear her gentle voice on every page, assuring each special-needs child that God genuinely care, that he’s in control, and he had something very special in mind when he created them.”
— Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center
“For the people in this book, the sovereignty and goodness of God have become a sanctuary for the soul in a life they did not expect to live. When they affirm the goodness and wisdom of God in creating them for short-term disability and eternal super-ability, they do not do so without tears. There is no glib trifling with pain. They are learning the paradox of ‘sorrowful yet always rejoicing.’ They believe that God did not spare his own Son but gave him up for their complete renewal—spiritually and physically. This healing is as sure as Jesus is precious—infinitely precious. It is only a matter of time, a vapor’s breath, and they will be whole. Because of the grace of God, these lives and this book exist for the glory of God.”
— John Piper, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN
