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!”

Congratulations Joni. This is so well deserved! You have inspired me since I read your first book when it first came out (we are the same age!). I even have it autographed by you. I have read most of your books since and continue to be uplifted by you, your words, and your example. Thanks so much for being you and being such a humble servant of our Lord.

Joni: Just wanted to thank you for being an inspiration to me and thousands of others. I read your book some 30 years ago and it deeply impacted my life. Thru the years, you have reminded me over & over again that GOD never expects us to do anything on our own, but always in our Father's strength. May GOD continue to bless you abundantly.
