Bart and Nancy have a son with significant disabilities and for a time, they felt overwhelmed and isolated.  

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Bart and Nancy have a son with significant disabilities and for a time, they felt overwhelmed and isolated. Often they were not included in social invitations; they just felt so alone. But when Bart and Nancy attended their first Joni and Friends Family Retreat, everything changed. Nancy said, “We have finally found a community of families who are going through the same thing and experiencing the same feelings.” The best part is, Nancy and Bart stay connected with those same families throughout the rest of the year. And they always sign up the following summer for the next retreat. Philemon chapter 1 says that Christian love gives great joy and encouragement. So hey, I invite you to give Christian love like that! Serve with us at a Family Retreat next summer. For all the details, just go to our Family Retreat page at joniandfriends.org.
