I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and when I was a little girl and my family took road trips, I loved being the navigator. I would sit in the front seat, spread out the map on my lap, mark off each town we’d pass. I loved seeing where we’d been, where we were heading, and how far we’d come. It’s the journey that I love. And I’m sure that’s why I enjoy my Christian walk. It’s an exciting journey, and the Bible…Read More
Breathe on me, breathe on me, Holy Spirit, breathe on me. Take thou my heart, cleanse ev’ry part, Holy Spirit, breathe on me. Edwin Hatch God’s people breathe cleaner air.

We’re looking to be filled from the outside, in. Yet when the Bible talks about being filled with the Spirit, it says, “He who believes in me, from his innermost…Read More
I don’t know about you, but I have never been one to trust myself. Now, I realize that may seem odd, but I mean it. Hi there, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and I’d better explain when I say I don’t trust myself! The reason I do not trust me? Well, because I know me. I know me pretty well – or at least as well as 40-some-odd years of confessing my sin will teach me. Let me give you an example. I…Read More
Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and you ought to see how many halffinished paintings I have in my art studio. I get a wonderful idea; I’ll do a few quick sketches and then … my attention gets diverted. You know, I am so glad that my Creator does not approach things like I do. He always completes what he begins. And that includes you. Psalm 138 says, “The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures…Read More
Hey friend, Father’s Day is coming up! And I’ve got a great story I’d like to tell you about my own father. Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and although my dad went home to be with the Lord many years ago, there is one particular memory that I so treasure. It’s the time when Daddy went camping with my husband and me up in the Sierras. One afternoon I watched…Read More
“My heart says of you, ‘Seek his face!’ your face, Lord, I will seek.” Psalm 27:8 Sometimes a good story says it all, like this one by Robert Louis Stevenson. The scene? A raging storm at sea. The story? The passengers in the ship became alarmed when the waves began to crash over the bow.…Read More

We have a choice of what role we want to play in that.” During our third season of the Joni and Friends Ministry Podcast, we’ve invited listeners to send in your questions about disability-related topics and etiquette. Today we…Read More
Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and on a Wheels for the World outreach in Poland, we met 70year-old Mrs. Wieladek. After receiving a wheelchair, she wrote me a letter in halting English; she said: “Dear Joni, for ten years I have been suffering from sick legs. I received an invitation to Warsaw to have a wheelchair. Nice, young, and English-speaking girls served coffee and tasty cookies, and there was also common prayer. I…Read More
