Kempton Turner FamilyEvery year, I ask radio listeners to join our “Heart for the Disabled” project by sending cards and gifts to five special needs families. Well, on February 14, each of these families was surprised with a big box at their front door full of your letters, drawings, poems, gift cards, stuffed animals—and encouragement...

Dear Future Mom...When an expectant mother hears the words "Your child may have Down syndrome," her heart and mind are flooded with thoughts and emotions … Thoughts such as, "Will my child live?" or "How are we going to care for a special needs child?" 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...

From left to right: Tatiana, Joni, Jim, and RaineyIf you follow me regularly on Facebook or my Blog, you know that radio recording day comes around every four weeks or so – you also know I always ask for your prayers. As a quadriplegic, I only have so much energy and lung-power, and so I lean hard on our wonderful God of Help to supply His grace...

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

How To Think Positive This Christmas

Christmas… the season for pie baking, gift shopping, tree decorating, and ice-skating. But what if your arthritic hands can no longer detangle Christmas lights? What if your paralyzed legs restrain you from skating on ice? Or your aging eyes can no longer read your classic family recipe? If this Christmas, you find yourself wishing you could do more or have more, you’re not alone. When Joni was first injured, she wrestled with many of these real, day-to-day struggles of being disabled over the holidays. But friend, you don’t have to be in a wheelchair to feel like you’re missing out during the Christmas season. With Christmas sales galore, holiday parties everywhere, and family photos that look like they’re straight out of Parents Magazine … it’s easy to feel left out. It’s why Joni would like to share with you how, rather than focusing on what you don’t have, you can focus on all that God has given you this Christmas: His precious Son, Jesus. So, take a moment to watch this short, Christmas video greeting from Joni and then, share it...

Radio Recording Today!I can hardly believe today will be the last radio recording session for 2014 – I think we are up to over 8500 radio programs (considering "Joni and Friends" has been on the air since 1982). As always, I will be leaning on your prayers for physical strength, lung power, a clear voice, and an anointing from the Holy Spirit over...

Gladys WilsonFor most people, the thought of living with Alzheimer’s is terrifying. Although Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and as many as 5.1 million Americans live with this condition*, many do not understand this disease. We have come to believe as a society that our reasoning, language, memory, and the power to live independently is what makes us human. But what happens when the ability to think and...

Heather and SaraThis week, Joni's been talking about bullying and it's because October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Although many children are bullied, those with disabilities or special needs are at higher risk. According to a study published in 2013 by the Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, 38% of children with autism are bullied. And of those children, 69% end up traumatized and 8% were physically...
