Wednesday, January 19th Update from Joni: Earlier today, a visitor asked me, “Are you a type A personality?” I can’t remember exactly what that means, but I know I love the mission God’s given me, and I’m invigorated by the work. I’m not so ‘into’ work, though, that I don’t carve out lots of time to…

Friday, January 7th Update from Joni: A friend passed by my office yesterday, saw me at my computer, and leaned in to say, “Looks like you’re back in the groove, Joni!” I smiled, grateful I’ve regained my energy and strength since last year’s chemo. On the other hand, little red flags started waving in my…

Monday, January 3rd Update from Joni: Happy New Year, friend, and I hope you enjoyed a blessed season celebrating Jesus’ birth. I want to share something special I learned over the holidays – you see, it was early on the morning of December 24 in 2003 when my mother-in-law died from pancreatic cancer in our…
