Honoring Joni and Friends Radio: “Shining a light in Dark Places”

Hi Friends:

This was the original story I was going to share, until I discovered the “My Story” video, which we shared first.

In 1982, Joni Eareckson Tada began recording the inspirational “Joni  and Friends” radio program, to provide encouragement, biblical insights, and disability awareness.
This is a four-minute broadcast, hosted by Joni Eareckson Tada, which airs Monday-Friday.

Quoting from her website, “Her contagious joy and unwavering faith provide hope for those who find themselves faced with life’s crippling blows.”

Over 35 Years.
Over 9,000 radio messages.
Heard on over 1500 radios stations across the United States, and in 36 countries around the world.

Broadcasting to people who need “a hope found only in Jesus.”

Joni also hosts a shortened radio program called Diamonds in the Dust. This 1-minute program offers nuggets of encouragement to listeners worldwide. In 2011, “Diamonds in the Dust” won “Short Form Radio Program of the Year” from National Religious
Broadcasters.

Joni and Friends is a ministry dedicated to extending the hope and love of Jesus Christ to people affected by disability around the world.

I’ll never look at Luke, Chapter 14, the same.
