Natalie wasn’t quite sure what to expect when she signed up to serve for the first time at one of our Joni and Friends International Family Retreats.

Natalie shares her reflections… "I had the privilege of serving at the Joni and Friends International Family Retreat in Peru last August. For four days I experienced pure joy as we served the families and helped cultivate a place of rest, support, prayer, worship, adventure and education! Across borders, oceans and language barriers I experienced a true connectivity of the human race. In spite of our...

Psalm 126:3As I look back on 2015, I am so grateful for God’s abundant blessings — blessings like the stamina to have been “on the road” 102 days this year, where I had the privilege of joining Pastor Chuck Swindoll for a Sunday service interview; speaking before international disability leaders at our Joni and Friends Global Access Conference; and attending our wonderful Family Retreat in Texas. Plus, the blessing of having recorded over 8,000 radio programs after 33 years on the air! Not to mention the opportunity to have written on important issues, such as the dangerous right-to-die bill in California. And of course, I praise the Lord for having been declared cancer-free! Wow, what an amazing year it has been! It’s why I want to be like the tenth leper in Luke 17, who came back to Jesus with loud praise, thanking Him for what He had done. Will you join me...
