Warehousing the ElderlyBesides thanking radio station managers here at NRB, I'm doing lots of interviews – mainly on the assisted suicide bills which have been introduced into various state assemblies across the US. But here's another story I'm talking about. In the UK, the elderly and disabled are...

Joni comments on Drop BoxKen and I are hearing a lot of ‘chatter’ at NRB about the new film Drop Box – it is an extraordinary documentary filmed by Brian Ivie that depicts the ministry of Pastor Lee in South Korea. Pastor Lee rescues abandoned infants, and many of them have disabilities. His is an amazing work which has gained global attention. A few weeks ago, Pastor Lee visited the International Disability Center (pictured from the left are his...

All this week Ken and I are at the NRB Convention in Nashville, TN – it is our one chance to meet personally with the many managers of Christian radio stations who air "Joni and Friends.” There are a lot of Christian programmers who are competing for air time on radio stations, so we are very grateful for the generous station managers who provide time to us per gratis.

Flower in waterWith so many examples of healing in the New Testament, it's no wonder we struggle when God chooses to say "no" or "wait" to our earnest requests for physical healing. I know I have struggled – not only when I was first injured and became a quadriplegic, but not long ago when I began experiencing chronic pain. Please know that God is aware of your fear, your sorrow, your despair, your longings, and your...

A Dignified Death?

pillsLike many, my heart broke when I recently watched Brittany Maynard's video in which she outlined her plans to die through physician-assisted suicide. No one – absolutely no one – welcomes the pain that dealing with a terminal disease invariably brings, and it's clear that this young woman is firm in her convictions. But if I could park my wheelchair beside her, I would tell her how the love of Jesus has sustained me through my chronic pain, quadriplegia and cancer. I don't want her to wake up on the other side of her tombstone only to face a dark, grim existence without life and joy; that is, without God. There's only one Person who has transformed the landscape of life-after-death, and that is Jesus, the One who conquered the grave and opened the path to life eternal. Three grams of Phenobarbital in the veins will only provide a temporary reprieve. It is not the answer for the most important passage of her life. The hours are ticking away...

Beside Bethesda by Joni Eareckson TadaNow available from Joni and Friends is Joni’s new book, Beside Bethesda: 31 Days Toward Deeper Healing. “This 31-day devotional covers the many questions I had about healing when I was first injured,” says Joni. “During those long ago days, I would imagine myself in John 5:2-9, sitting by the Pool of Bethesda with the other disabled people, waiting to be healed. Over the years, I discovered a much deeper healing than walking or using my hands. I found I could enjoy more freedom through ‘inside’ healing than anything I could experience on my feet.” Here, you’ll dig into topics such as contentment, unanswered prayer, transformation through suffering and hoping in God. As Joni shares her own experiences along with profound biblical insights, you will discover the deep ‘inside’ healing God has for you. Order your copy today!
