Joni in her wheelchairWhile all major hotels now boast several Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant suites, the Sheraton Agoura Hills located next door to the Joni and Friends International Disability Center is the first to dedicate one such suite to Joni Eareckson Tada, who served on the National Council on Disability in helping to craft the ADA legislation more than 20 years ago. Joni shared, “We are proud to have the Sheraton Agoura Hills as a neighbor here at the International Disability Center, and I am humbled that they would choose to dedicate a suite in my name. The honor truly goes to the entire Joni and Friends staff who serve every day to help share the hope of the Gospel with those with disabilities and their families.” A unique feature of the Joni Eareckson Tada Suite at the Sheraton Agoura Hills is that Joni’s paintings grace the walls throughout the suite. A statement released by the hotel lauded the artwork, calling Joni  “a remarkably talented woman.” The statement continued: “The Sheraton Agoura Hills Hotel is proud to be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act by providing accessible suites for our guests with disabilities. We have dedicated this particular suite in honor of our friend and neighbor, Joni Eareckson Tada.”

See, Joni...you would have NEVER thought that such a horrible accident that you had so many years ago would lead to this...in God's eyes, it was NOT an accident, we all know that now!!

What a well-deserved honor for you, Joni!! You have inspired countless people through the years, myself included. May our dear Lord continue blessing you and Ken...and blessings upon the amazing staff at the Sheraton Agoura Hills and everyone who made this suite possible. I agree with you, Joni...the shower looks WONDERFUL!! What a beautiful suite!

This is great. We should applaud any business that not only seeks to comply with disability laws, but goes above and beyond compliance to provide excellent accommodations for those with disabilities. Joni always seeks to give glory to Christ and I am glad to see her use this opportunity to do that.

Oh how I love good news! I am so happy for you with the recent suite at the hotel! This honor was also a way to help those with disabilities get out more, and with the updated suite, they will no doubt feel special. God Bless, Jean

Dear Joni, While it is true, you do have physical disabilities, yet the love of God shines through in your face and from your heart. Your testimony of God's grace radiates from your lips and your love for others so evident in your speech and smile. God bless you! Jack
