  • Joni's Posts, What's New in Our Store

Beyond Suffering BibleAfter 6 years of hard work and much prayer, I'm happy to announce that the Beyond Suffering Bible is available in our store! It all started when Tyndale and Joni and Friends decided to design a study Bible specifically for people who are struggling with pain and disability, as well as for their family members and caregivers. And the need is great - when it comes to a serious disabling condition, all kinds of questions get raised like: why hasn’t God healed me? How can I get free of depression?...

Joni RadioThis picture is a bit of a throwback – taken many years ago. In fact, we have been recording radio for 34 years! And tomorrow we will record our 9,001 radio program.

I am amazed at God’s faithfulness.  As you know, I always ask you to pray for me on these days and I am so thankful for those prayers. There can be many obstacles to a good recording session...

A Spectacle of GloryEvery Christian wonders, Exactly why did God create me?  Well, God created you for one purpose, and that is to showcase His glory – He wants you to enjoy it, display it, and demonstrate it every day to all those you encounter. Nearly 50 years of living as a quadriplegic and dealing with chronic pain on a daily basis has taught me how to make Jesus look good in the toughest of situations.  And I love passing those lessons on in my new devotional, A Spectacle of Glory.
