Family Retreat Call

January 21, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and it’s something I will never forget.   I was at one of our Joni and Friends’ Family Retreats last year, and I was sitting across the lunch table from Susan, a single mother with two kids with disabilities. This woman looked so tired and she looked sad – which to me was odd, because it was the first day of…
