January 10, 2019

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada; welcome to “Heart for the Disabled” week.   That’s right.  All this week I’ve been mentioning the stories of families with special needs — moms and dads and disabled kids and their siblings, all of them bone-tired, weary people who really, really need the encouragement of Christ.  And you are helping me give that encouragement as you’ve written notes, Valentine’s cards, and letters to…

Perhaps you have been told that you sometimes come across a little harsh, a little impatient. Today’s Scripture has good advice for all of us. “Let your gentleness be evident to all.” The…

January 8, 2019

Every family has trials from time to time, but when it comes to families affected by disabilities their day-to-day can be so much more challenging. They can feel so overwhelmed sometimes.  1 Thessalonians 5 calls us to, “encourage one another and build each other up… encourage the disheartened and help the weak.”  Every year we select 5 families who really could use a boost;…
