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...

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...

Drawing of Joni's fatherToday, Joni Eareckson Tada is a famous mouth artist with works of art ranging from sketches to oil paintings, pastels and more. Her love for art began as a child, when as a little girl she would sit at the feet of her father, John Eareckson, watching him work at his easel. He would lift Joni up on his knee, take his big hand around hers, and together they would grab a brush and sweep and swirl colors across a canvas...

Lindy EarecksonCan you imagine what it would be like to be told your daughter will live the rest of her life in a wheelchair? For Joni’s parents, those first few years of Joni’s paralysis were filled with questions, doubts, and fears aimed at doctors and God. After all, quadriplegia was something completely new and unknown to this family. So, how did they make it through? In this short video clip, you’ll hear Lindy and John Eareckson talk about...
