This beautiful rendition of the song “Alone Yet Not Alone” is performed by Jodi Eareckson Tada. Jodi is a quadriplegic with limited lung capacity due to her disability, had her husband, Ken, pushing on her diaphragm while she recorded the song to give her enough breath to hit the high notes.
Her strength and perseverance, as well as her belief in Almighty God has inspired me to place her here in “Songs of the Mountain.”
ALONE YET NOT ALONE is based on an inspiring true story taken from a novel of the same name written by Tracy Leininger Craven and depicts a family at a critical juncture in America’s history.
Fleeing religious persecution in Germany, the Leininger family seeks a new start in uncharted country – America. It is the mid-1700s and British and French forces are struggling for control over the abundant resources of this new territory.
Despite the escalating tension mounting around them, the Leiningers give thanks and praise for the sparkling streams and majestic forests around Penns Creek and above all, their freedom to worship. Carving out a homestead can be arduous work, but the Leiningers labor joyfully. After all, what the land will not yield, the cherished family Bible would, providing the everlasting nourishment of God’s promise.
Then the unthinkable: In a terrifying raid, Delaware warriors kidnap the two young Leininger daughters and attempt to indoctrinate them into native culture. Through their ordeal they never lose hope and “their faith becomes their freedom”.
“This is a well-written adventure told from the point of view of an intelligent, observant, and mature girl on the brink of adolescence, with a knack for sharing relevant detail.”
