“One of my greatest joys is to keep passing on the heart-pumping, faith-strengthening insights I've gleaned in the 5 decades I've lived as a quadriplegic. It's the purpose behind the Joni and Friends daily radio program. I love to pass on blessings!” – Joni Eareckson Tada

This year marks 35 years of Joni inspiring and encouraging people all around the world through the Joni and Friends radio program! And she has come a long way… In 1982, she was brand new to radio and recorded her programs in little more than a closet. Now, 3 ½ decades later, she’s recorded over 9,000 programs and her story has expanded to reach millions of people affected by disability all around the globe. Have you been blessed by Joni’s radio program? Please leave Joni an encouraging comment!

Joni, Congratulations on 35 Years. Your faithfulness to the Lord and this work for all these years is an inspiration. Those of us without the daily challenges you face have nothing really to complain about. You're an encouragement to everyone you meet whether in person or through radio. Keep it up! Tom Sommerville
