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. That’s over 600 hours of truth, encouragement and hope reaching through those radio waves to countless listeners! 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...

Island of DisabilityFeeling isolated is common when you have a child with special needs. My friend, Shauna, experienced this when she got the news her baby, Sarah, had chromosomal abnormalities. Although her friends loved her, they didn’t know what...

Paul BuursmaYears ago, back in 1998, I met a little boy with cerebral palsy named Paul Buursma at one of our Joni and Friends’ Family Retreats. He had a smattering of freckles, shiny blonde hair, and the biggest smile I’d ever seen. He also had many physical complications related to his cerebral palsy, all of which required non-stop 24/7 care from his parents, Dirk and Harriet. His siblings, Abby and Nate, also helped out.

That Retreat was such a huge blessing to this family...

Joni and Ken in the recording studioIt’s Radio Recording Day! I’ve got a full day ahead of recording for me and — I have to be honest — it’s been a hard week of pain and little sleep. So will you please join me in praying for God to bless me with breath, a strong voice, and a pain-free day? And that it would not be me speaking, but the Spirit of God speaking through me (Matthew 10:20). Thanks, friend, for being my mighty prayer warrior on radio day :-).

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 1981 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...

Heart for the DisabledEvery year, we meet so many families whose everyday lives are impacted by disability: weary single-moms who worry about making ends meet, siblings who patiently help their brother with autism, grandparents who lovingly care for a baby with neonatal withdrawal ... Families that need encouragement from Christians like you. And it’s why at the start of the year, we select five families affected by disability to be the recipients of “Hearts for the Disabled.” You can participate by sending a Valentine’s...
