joni and ken celebrating his birthdayken and joni celebrating kens birthday

When Joni said she asked a few friends to send me birthday wishes, I was thinking a couple of extra cards in the mail. Then she told me to look at her blog – whoa! I couldn't believe how many of you wrote -- they even told me "my birthday blog" froze up the blog page on the website for an hour or so! Just know I'm really grateful for all your comments and for your prayers. Joni invited some folks from the ministry to a birthday luncheon for me at the IDC, complete with my favorite kind of cake: a Baskin Robbins chocolate-chip ice cream/chocolate cake. I think I'm taking this 65-year-old thing okay – as long as Medicare doesn't make it too complicated. Thanks again for writing – it was a neat surprise! I am a much loved man… and much prayed for. Thank you for that!

Joni, you are a true inspiration to people of all disabilities! I have a head injury from auto accident 1995! Recently reading your book titled JONI was very enlightening! I want to wish you a fabulous birthday! Know that God sings over you with shouts of joy! Thank you for all you have done, and are still doing for our Saviour Jesus Christ, and people with disabilities!

Hello Joni! I am thrilled to find your website! I am not a spinal cord injury survivor, but a brain injury survivor and a retired nurse. We never know in what direction GOD will allow our lives to go, but we do know that HIS grace will follow. It took me many years to come out of the fog to really realize what had happened to me and I thought that it was forever, but with GOD's grace, I have found joy and purpose. As HIS word says, "HIS grace is sufficient for all of our needs!" He is there for me when I cry out to HIM "HELP ME, GOD!" He shows me the beauty of HIS creation and brings back the words of old hymns I learned as a child......"Great is thy faithfulness", "How Great Thou Art", ........and His word which I memorized as a child. I can't remember what I said to someone 5 minutes ago, but I can quote scripture verses and HE brings them to my mind when they are needed! We serve such an awesome GOD!!! Our paths may be winding, and full of dangers, but HE is with us everywhere we go. Continue blessing those who GOD sends your way! Lots of love, in HIM! Phyllis

Hello. I read your book when I was younger and saw your movie. I also remember seeing you on the Billy Graham Crusades! You are truly a gift from God to the rest of us women in the world! I am inspired and in awe of your success and jealous of the fact that you have not aged! May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and prosperous new year!
