Through the BibleMy sister Kathy has been reading through the Bible along with the rest of us, and recently she sent me a snapshot of our chronological reading schedule – I was amazed to see all the notes and cross-references she's jotted down! If she has a question, she writes it on a sticky note...

BlindThis snapshot proves it’s more than possible… it’s even natural if you happen to be attending a Joni and Friends’ Family Retreat. Meet Janine Hults who is legally blind and uses a guide dog, and Andy Anderson who, because of diabetes, is an amputee and is visually impaired, as well.

KenOn December 13th, my husband Ken Tada will turn 70 years old – yikes! And he’s not exactly thrilled about this milestone.
