An Honor from Christianity Today
I was deeply touched to see my name included in this month’s issue of Christianity Today highlighting “50 Women to Watch.” I was especially glad to see that CT wrote “Life Advocate” under my name. More than 35 of the 45 years I’ve lived as a quadriplegic have been dedicated to advocacy for people with disabilities, whether newborns, the unborn, the elderly, or those with such significant impairments that most would say they were “better off dead than disabled.” At Joni and Friends, we are constantly spreading the word that a disability is not ‘the end of the world;’ and this CT article (pg7) definitely helps reinforce that important message. With the amazing grace of God, there is much more “ability” in disability than you can imagine!
