Our Dear Friend, Joni

Radio Guest: Mrs. Joni Eareckson Tada

Her faith is strong, her heart is pure … and for over 40 years she’s lived with grace and dignity as a quadraplegic. We’re all familiar with Joni Eareckson Tada’s story. Dr. Dobson and LuAnne Crane speak with Joni, who reveals how she is facing her NEXT great challenge: cancer. It’s a tender conversation with a lady we love, and it’s one you won’t want to miss!

Dr. Dobson, after enduring a particularly difficult loss, penned the book When God Doesn’t Make Sense. It has sold over a million copies. We’d like you to receive it today! Just call our toll free number, (877) 732-6825 to request a copy. You can also obtain one here on our Web site.

In 1967 Joni Eareckson Tada was injured in a diving accident at 17 years old, leaving her in a quadriplegic state with minimal use of her hands. After two years of rehabilitation, Joni re-entered the community with new skills and a fresh determination to help others in similar situations.

Joni and Friends began in 1979 at Joni’s house as she and her friends responded to the many questions and needs pouring in from families affected by disability.  Joni and Friends continues to reach out around the world to people and families with the love of Christ and the practical help they need.

In addition, Joni mentions a great article on today's broadcast: "Don't Waste Your Cancer", by John Piper.
