Revive Us 2I want to tell you about a special event to be held October 24 (encore performance November 1). That evening, Revive Us 2 will be live-streamed in theaters all across America. This is a great way for the body of Christ to come together and be strengthened, encouraged, and unified in praying for our nation. I’m sure you’d agree, with all that’s happening in our country, we need to be praying together. Kirk Cameron, along with Dr. Ben Carson, Ravi Zacharias, and I will bring Holy Spirit inspired messages. Friend, this is an exciting time — God is moving and creating opportunities for us to invite others to put their hope in Christ, but we can’t do it...

Through the RoofAt Joni and Friends, we love to reflect on God’s good works, and this year we’ve been celebrating quite a few milestones: 50 years in my wheelchair and 35 years of our radio outreach. But we’re not the only ones celebrating anniversaries. Through the Roof, our good friends and charter ministry partners in the UK, are also rejoicing...

Sib's Sign

During a recent, busy trip back east, Ken and I were scurrying from one ministry event to the next, juggling flights, hotels, and crowded freeways. Our schedule was rigorous and, I will admit, exhausting. On one leg of our journey, we flew into BWI from Nashville, and then made the long drive up Interstate 81 to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. As we unloaded at the home of Sib Charles, a dear friend and staff member of Joni and Friends/PA, I felt a soothing breeze – the sun was just setting over the farms and cornfields beyond her front door. After slowly inspecting the flowers in the backyard, I wheeled into Sib and Jess's kitchen. The first thing I spotted was this sign; actually, the first thing I saw...

Wheels in PrisonsWheels for the World depends not only on prayer, donations, volunteers, and people with disabilities… its success depends on hundreds of inmates in 16 prisons across the country. Joni and Friends works with correctional facilities to establish Wheels for the World restoration shops where inmates work hard to refurbish used but...

Times Square ChurchThere's nothing like praying on the streets of New York City. And sometimes even a few passersby might join you. What can I say, but that the joy of having the chance to speak at Times Square Church was so Spirit-blessed, the rejoicing overflowed onto the streets! Arriving in New York earlier in the week, I enjoyed lively podcast and...

Airport MiracleAirports may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of miracles, but it's the perfect place for God to reveal Himself. It's why on busy ministry trips, Ken and I always keep our eyes open for divine 'appointments.' One of those miracle-appointments recently occurred at the Newark airport. We were happy to be heading home after a fruitful time on the East Coast, and our United gate agent, Alice, was checking us in for our flight to LAX. As we engaged her in conversation, we learned that her family in Puerto Rico had suffered much since Hurricane Maria. Near tears, Alice explained that her brother, Carlito...

Fall’s Arrived

Fall’s ArrivedDuring a recent trip back east, I was so hoping to see a little Fall color – but as we drove from Maryland to New York, hardly an oak or a maple tree was turning yellow or orange. We were too early for the change of leaves. When we flew home to Los Angeles, I was hoping to feel the cooler temperatures of Fall, but it wasn’t to be — it was 90 degrees, just as when we left. When Ken and I pulled up into our driveway, gathered our things, and proceeded up the front walk, I glanced at our myrtle tree in the front yard — but even its leaves were still green. However, I dropped everything when we reached our front porch...

Beauty MarksEvery woman bears a scar of some sort, and often it is a source of quiet shame and disappointment. My friend, Linda Barrick, understands this — her life was completely altered on the night of November 5, 2006 when her family’s van was hit by a drunk driver speeding at 80mph. Their van was destroyed, and all four members of...

Prayer in the Face of EvilOur country has suffered, yet again, an act of pure evil and civil unrest – and as Christians, we are dropping to our knees, asking for God's mercy, healing, and grace. This morning I woke up to the news that at least 58 people were killed, and over 550 were wounded in a horrific shooting in Las Vegas. A gunman turned a concert into...
