On the final evening of the National Religious Broadcasters convention, Joni was inducted into the NRB Hall of Fame at the awards dinner. Joni is flanked at the presentation by Rich Bott, chairman, and Dr. Frank Wright, CEO. Amidst a standing ovation, Joni thanked her friends at Ambassador Agency, particularly Al Sanders and Jon Campbell, for planting the vision for the “Joni and Friends” radio program which, this year, celebrates 30 years on the air. “I also want to thank Doug Mazza and the leadership at Joni and Friends for encouraging me to continue in Christian broadcasting,” said Joni after the presentation. Drop Joni a note of congratulations on this blog, and be sure to visit our Radio Page to enjoy listening to several of Joni’s recent programs. From all of us here at the Joni and Friends International Disability Center, we say to our friend, “Congratulations, Joni!”

Congrtulations Joni!! Your books and ministry have been a true blessing to me from my early teens. When I was diagnosed with S curved scoliosis. I was in Shriner's hospital of St Louis for adjustment and to get used to the combo Boston/Milwalkee brace. It was awesome I made two lasting friendships. My friend Rosita Requenna from Belize Central America and Joni Erickson Tada. You have been in my heart, thoughts and prayers ever since. God Bless you Joni. Thank you for your ministry and sharing with all of us. Zebby

Joni, Just want to tell you that my mother who is 92 just heard you in person in Nashville, TN. She called me and told me how touched she was to have the privilege. She was so blessed, she couldn't say enough. Thank you for sharing your life and all those that you have touched. Blessings to you. Congratulations on your award.

A great occasion, a great honor, a great victory, which pales in comparison to the day that you get to meet the King of kings face to face. Thank you for your inspiration and for helping me understand how crutches in our life can bring us closer to Jesus. I'm proud of you Joni, and all that you have become and how you have become a great reflector of praise and honor to other people around you. Congratulations to "Joni and Friends", a group of people nameless to me but so unique in God's eyes, each with a name special to Jesus, who are excitedly living out the "Plan of the Ages". Hurrah !

We've been missionaries in Spain for 38 years now. For many, many of those years we have used Joni's books as an evangelism tool and God has been pleased to touch many lives through her testimony. Any reward she receives on earth is well deserved but nothing in comparison to God's "well done, faithful servant." Congratulations, Joni.
