People That Inspire Joni
In our journey through life, we all need people to inspire us along the way—and I’m no exception. I thank God for sending me true models of inspiration, and I have the pleasure of introducing you to some of them here.
Although in his mid-90s, Mr. Graham continues to serve the Lord as a powerful prayer warrior. And he's passionate about making the gospel accessible to disabled people, too. I remember when I spoke at Billy Graham's Crusade in Budapest Hungary in 1989 – his team underwrote the train fares of any disabled person who desired to come to the downtown sports arena.

Carol is my husband's younger sister and we've been friends for over 30 years. A short time after my own battle against breast cancer in 2010, Carol discovered she had it, too. Unlike me, she had a double mastectomy – and hers was a much longer, more difficult recovery than mine. But she faced it with confidence in Christ and a hopeful spirit.

She trusts in the Lord with all her heart, and this is why my sister-in-law, Carol, is my inspiration!More Information
Share With Us Your Story
One of the best things about Joni and Friends is the "and Friends." That's you! Our ministry is a marvelous network of servants and leaders, young and old, able and disabled, from the U.S. and around the world, all of whom share a special love for the Lord Jesus, as well as a deep desire to make Him real to a skeptical world. You already know my story, but I'd like to hear yours -- burdens are lifted and joy is multiplied when we open our hearts to each other. So thank you for writing me and telling me about the Lord's work in your life. And who knows? Some of what you say may end up in one of our "Joni and Friends" radio programs or in one of our newsletters. Whichever, thank you for encouraging others (and encouraging me) with your story!
