When I was 17 and lying in a hospital bed, Jeremiah 29:11 was a verse I just couldn’t wrap my mind around. Quadriplegia and life in a wheelchair?

A friend recently shared my testimony with her coworker, and wanted to send her a follow-up. She asked, “Joni, is there a short interview about your story that I could email her?” I was happy to send my friend the following video — in this interview, Dr. Michael Easley asks how I came to grips...

I love the passage in Matthew 21, where the Bible tells of Jesus’ grand entrance into Jerusalem. It says that as Jesus entered the city riding on a donkey… A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went...

When it comes to memorizing scripture, I'm always trying to catch up with my husband Ken. But try as I may, he’s usually ahead of me by several verses, if not a chapter or two. For instance, Ken has been memorizing James 1, and I think he’s on the 15th verse. But me? I am barely up to verse 12...

Spring is here! And in Southern California, we’re already seeing the first green shoots beginning to bud — especially with the recent rains. Narcissuses and daffodils are poking their heads; my backyard rosebushes are coming to life; and back east, yellow forsythia bushes are probably already aglow...

After 50 years of being in a wheelchair, you’d think I’d be a professional at handling hardships. But I’ve still got much to learn. When the pain in my hip keeps me up night after night, or when a pressure sore forces me to lie in bed for days, I am quick to feel like I just can’t do it anymore...

Every year, I ask friends like you to join me in our “Heart for the Disabled” ministry. It’s a time when I share over the radio the stories of five families affected by disability, asking you to send in notes of encouragement to bless these families on Valentine’s Day — families like that of Darrell and Betty. Their eldest son, Brandon, is on the autism spectrum and is non-verbal. At 18, he’s growing leaps and bounds. This has made caring for Brandon a big challenge — especially with the meltdowns and unpredictable, erratic behavior that are common in boys with autism. It’s why they were overflowing with joy when they received their Valentine’s...

Not long ago, while reading in the book of 1 Corinthians, I stopped at the thirteenth chapter. In verse 11, the Apostle Paul says, “When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.” Paul’s...

Francie Lorey’s RetirementIn the late 70’s, after publishing the Joni book and filming the Joni movie, floods of letters began coming in from people with disabilities all over the world — asking about my faith in Jesus, what to do about depression, my thoughts on miraculous...
