Christmas Truce of 1914My husband Ken and I are World War I history buffs – I've always been fascinated by the Christmas truce of 1914 when the sounds of exploding shells faded along the Western Front in a gesture of goodwill between German and British soldiers. Although an ad, this video captures the essence of what happened that day (once when I visited the Imperial War Museum in London, I read actual letters written by British soldiers giving first-hand testimony of...

Christmas Breakfast at the Post Office

Christmas Breakfast for the Post OfficeThe Post Office in Agoura Hills works hard – they process thousands of letters and packages for Joni and Friends. It's why I'm so proud of Janet Didone, manager of JAF's Supply Chain, and her wonderful team (that's Janet on the right). They have a heart to showcase the love of Christ to all our community vendors, especially the Post Office. So last Friday morning, Janet and her crew fixed a big, sumptuous Christmas breakfast for all the postal workers at the Agoura Hills office. Janet told me, "Everywhere we go, we have the opportunity to share the Gospel!" And isn't that what Christmas is all about :-).

EmilyI’ve shared Emily Shanahan’s story on my blog and FB page before, but it bears repeating. She’s one exceptional young woman! Emily may be a wheelchair-user with cerebral palsy, but she graduated from Cedarville University in 2011 with a Bachelors degree, and is now working...

Radio Recording Today!I can hardly believe today will be the last radio recording session for 2014 – I think we are up to over 8500 radio programs (considering "Joni and Friends" has been on the air since 1982). As always, I will be leaning on your prayers for physical strength, lung power, a clear voice, and an anointing from the Holy Spirit over...

A Warm Spot

Judy's CatMy friend Judy has a new cat who loves curling up in warm spots – like her computer keyboard. I can identify. On a cold morning, we all look for warm spots. For you, it may be flicking on the space heater while you brush your teeth. Or having your quiet time by a fire in the living room. When I lived on our Maryland farm, my sister and I greeted chilly mornings by turning on the oven in our kitchen. Nowadays on cold mornings, my favorite warm spot is the seat by our bedroom bay window – if time allows, the girls who get me up and I like to sit for a moment, pray, and...

Ken and Joni CelebratingToday is my husband's 68th birthday and you can tell from the photo we're celebrating (one thing I love about Ken is that he is so 'young at heart'). Plus, his love for the Lord Jesus continues to grow every year – we're getting ready to 'read through the Bible in a year' together again in 2015. This guy's the best – and it would mean the world to me if you would just drop him a quick birthday greeting today, December 13!

Lynn with Lindsey and AllisonRecently my quad-friend Lynn Wheeler wanted to take part in a 5K benefit run (to help needy children in Nashville). Two of her part-time caregivers, Lindsey and Allison, also are student athletes at Trevecca Nazarene University where the benefit-run was being held. To make it to the campus on time, Lindsey and Allison got Lynn up at 5:45 AM. They pushed her the whole 5K and afterward Lynn said, "They gave me such a wonderful gift! I felt like I...

Divine Healing by Ron DiCianniA couple of years ago when I was visiting the art studio of Ron DiCianni, he invited me to take my pick of one of his framed prints. “Really?” I said excitedly. I slowly wheeled passed his paintings on various easels, and stopped in front of one called “Divine Healing.” It was the scene from Luke...

Ken and Joni at the BeachColossians 1:24 says “Now I rejoice in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.” Nothing is lacking when it comes to what Christ did on the cross. It is finished, just as he said. But something...
