2017 Planner

When I lie down at night, ‘staring at the ceiling’ is a natural position for a quadriplegic like me. But I enjoy using that time to recite my favorite names for Jesus – I’ll whisper, calling Him my Wonderful Counselor, my Savior and Deliverer, Living Water and Bread of Heaven. But as chronic pain and physical limitations encroach, I love calling Him my Shepherd. Oh, Jesus, I’m your wounded sheep… keep me close to your side! It’s why I chose ‘The Lord Is My Shepherd’ as the theme for my 2017 Planner. The world is filled with so much fear, uncertainty, and anxiety, but it’s so comforting to know that your tender Shepherd guides you along paths of righteousness, and gently leads you with His staff. And so, I have filled my new Planner with quotations and favorite scriptures about His shepherding in your life.

Ken and I love using my Planner to keep track of my helpers who come and go from our house. We also write down our appointments, ‘to do’ lists, and prayer reminders. We encourage you to do the same by ordering your copy today – the best part is, your purchase underwrites the excellent ministry outreach of Joni and Friends! So consider ordering an extra copy for a friend. It’ll go far in helping us reach more people with disabilities for Christ. And thank you for helping us show them that Jesus is their very Good Shepherd!

Hi Joni, I am a 74 year old wife, mother, and grandmother. I have known about you and your friends for many, many years. I identified with you so very much, especially earlier in my life, when I was suffering from a mental disability. I have read several of your books and will order A Spectacle of Glory now. I am so glad to see your beautiful Christmas cards, which I ordered when they first came out years ago. I will order them again now. Thank you so very much for your ministry, your incredible books and artwork and the beautiful voice our Savior gave you! I am been His follower for many years and the Holy Spirit graciously lives through me now. That thank you is not nearly enough thanks for you, but they are the only words I have. Sincerly, Sandy

I have been using Joni's daily planner for many years now. I keep it on my kitchen counter and refer back to my "lists" many times a day! I'm a sheep lover as well as a lover of the Great Shepherd, so I'm looking forward to the 2017 inspirational planner! It's always been The Best!
