May 06, 2024

You’ve most likely heard of Joni Eareckson Tada, but for those who have not, at the tender age of 17, she had a diving accident that left her as a quadriplegic. Now at age 74, Joni has faced and overcome so many obstacles, including cancer. God has used her mightily! Today on Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson talks with his dear friend, Joni, about the life and lessons the Lord has taught her. She shares how her diving accident could have been the ruin of her entire existence, but instead, God used that tragedy to begin what she calls, “His greatest use of my life.”

Joni Eareckson Tada

Joni Eareckson Tada is an esteemed Christian stateswoman and respected global disability advocate. Her story began when a 1967 diving accident left her a quadriplegic. She emerged from rehabilitation with a determination to help others with disabilities. She serves as the CEO of Joni and Friends, a Christian organization which provides programs and services for thousands of special needs families around the world. In 2022, Joni celebrated 40 years on the air with her daily radio broadcast, which offers encouragement to those who suffer and live with a handicap. President Ronald Reagan appointed her to the National Council on Disability, and she was reappointed by President George H.W. Bush. The Americans with Disabilities Act was passed and signed into law during her tenure on the council. Joni is the author of many books, including Joni, which tells her unforgettable story, along with Where’s My Miracle?, A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain, and God’s Sovereignty, and Glorious Intruder: God’s Presence in Life’s Chaos.
