Be Like Her

September 15, 2020

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, talking about a book I really love. I believe I’ve told you that during COVID-19, I’ve been rereading the classic books of Elisabeth Elliot.

A Wartime Walkie Talkie

September 11, 2020

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and on this 9/11, life is war.   So says Dr. Piper, and I think we’d all agree with him based on the battle that we have had this year with coronavirus, and of course looking back at the events of 9/11 and that awful attack. As believers, we know that our true enemy – it’s not Al-Qaeda, like it was back at 9/11; it’s not even a virus, but it’s our life-long…

An Acceptable Obedience

September 9, 2020

Welcome to Joni and Friends; hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada.  Elisabeth Elliott tells the story of a little girl who, instead of doing her household chores, decided that she should spend that hour practicing on the piano. She sat on the bench, proudly plunking away on the keys, “Yes, Jesus Loves Me.” Her mother called from the other room, reminding her daughter of her duties; but the girl continued…

The Grace To Regret

September 8, 2020

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and I wonder if you have as many regrets as I do.  Welcome to Joni and Friends, and you will admit, regrets about the past can get you sidetracked. It happens to me all the time. There I am lying in bed and reflecting on a meeting earlier in the day with co–workers. And I will lie there and, in the…
