Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Not long ago the Sunshine Foundation in Canada asked if I would be willing to 'spend an afternoon' with Chloe, an 18-year-old girl with cerebral palsy who lives with her family in British Columbia (the Foundation's purpose is similar to 'Make a Wish'). I learned that my life story has inspired Chloe and just recently, my books helped her out of a time of deep depression. Well, it was her wish to one day meet me… and the Sunshine Foundation made it happen! Chloe and I had a great time over lunch, encouraging her to come and intern with us at Joni and Friends. I am so honored to have an influence on Chloe's life, for Titus 2:5 says, "In everything set them an example by doing what is good." So today, be mindful of the example you are to young people who look to you for guidance, and encourage them to check out our internships at joniandfriends.org!
