Joni and Ken, I so appreciate you both. My husband Cliff and I met you, Joni in 1981. Cliff actually met you while you were filming your movie. He is a quad from polio since 1955 and a artist.since 1970's. We were married in June of 1981 so are coming up on our 30 year anniversary. Cliff has been recovering from a bad bout of pneumonia since June of 2010. I have resigned from my job as a nurse to come home to care for him full time. Recently we have been reading your book - A lifetime of wisdom and have been encouraged by your words. Life is full of trouble but God sure is helping us continue the journey. We did not know that you have been battling cancer. I just thought you got a new hair style and thought it cute :) We will keep you in our prayers. God Bless you. Brenda and Cliff Potts in Billings Montana.

Joni, I have listened to you throughout the past 20+ years, seen your story,shared it with others and I am always blessed. God has used your journey to inspire all of us. I am almost 57 yrs. old (01/11) I had breast cancer 4/10, had mastectomy, 24 lymph nodes removed;did some chemo, & radiation ended in 10/10. Started with headaches in 11/10, diagnoised with brain cancer on 1/6/10, had brain surg;did some chemo, but I stopped it too. I've always loved God's Word, read it daily, and stand on it...counting it all JOY believing God has purpose and a plan. And believing Jer. 29:11. I understand the daily pain, but mine is none compared to your disability. I thank you for your faithfulness and the love of God that radiates from you unto others. I am praying for you & Ken. Blessings to you. Waiting to go HOME, Sharon

I accidentally saw this airing. Very good and it is one thing PBS gets right! By the way, Joni, will you post a blog about you being chairperson for the National Day of Prayer, coming in May, 2011? Esp. progress on the court case to eliminate the connection with the Federal government.

Dear Joni: You are in our daily prayers since we learned about your diagnosis of cancer. We pray that the Lord will comfort you, relieve your pain, and keep you safe and secure in the hollow of His hands. We still cherish the day we were able to meet you at the then BG Hdqts in Minneapolis. In Christian love, Dee & David

Dear Joni, I've followed you for many years, reading your books and devotionals. Having experienced a lot of losses myself, I've found solace in your words. My only sister was killed at 18 years by a drunk driver; my only brother was killed 6 years later - his 1st child was born 2 weeks later ;my 1st child was premature and we diagnosed in her teens with a kidney disease which will require a transplant; I became a type I diabetic after my 2nd child's birth; went through a divorce and had to find full time work; my dad died 7 years ago with brain cancer and my mom suddenly experienced dementia about 1 year ago - I moved her to my town 400 miles from her home. God is good. I can praise Him that He knows my sorrow. Love, Leslie
