35 Years of Joni and Friends RadioI can’t believe it’s been almost 35 years since I started radio. I remember the day I was asked to consider doing a radio program. It was back in 1982 when Al Sanders, the founder of Ambassador Advertising Agency, visited my home. I was on bed rest with stubborn pressure sores, and I didn’t think I had it in me to do a radio program. But Al believed in me — and in how Jesus would encourage many through this...

And then there are the unwelcome stares and comments: people referring to Caleb as “retarded” or criticizing Melissa’s parenting. But Caleb does not have mental delays; rather, Caleb learns differently. And Melissa and Steve love and care for their children with all their heart...

Clouded by fears of the unknown, cultural stigma, and family pressures, many mothers struggle to make...
