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...

This young man walked 17,600 feet up the side of...

Caleb BundyFor parents Steve and Melissa Bundy, parenting their teenage son Caleb who has autism is not easy. Because Caleb is nonverbal, his parents must communicate with him through a picture communication board. A simple trip to the grocery store may require the assistance of therapist — not to mention a lot of prayer for Caleb to remain calm during the shopping trip. 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...

But the one question just about any expectant mother of a child with Down syndrome will ask is, "What kind of life will my child have?" Clouded by fears of the unknown, cultural stigma, and family pressures, many mothers struggle to make...

Joni, Rainey, and TatianaIt's 4:15 PST and I just finished recording a full day of Joni and Friends Radio programs - it was a long session and we all were amazed at my energy, clarity of voice, and (for the most part) a throat that didn't sound garbled (thanks to drinking liters of water)! We even talked about you and how you were praying. So I want you...

Joni at the mic in the recording studioIt’s that time again… Heart for the Disabled Week! This week on Joni and Friends radio, Joni is sharing about five special needs families that can really use the encouragement of Christ. Each day, as Joni shares about a family that attended last year’s Family Retreat, she’ll give you the opportunity to encourage them by sending a Valentine’s card, scripture, or brief note letting them that you are praying for their family. Mail in your note to Joni and Friends and we’ll bundle up all the cards that come in and send them to the families in time for Valentine’s Day! Their hearts will be strengthened to receive a word of encouragement from you – so check out all the details on the Joni and Friends radio page
