Have you ever experienced a difficult season in your life and started to question, “Where are you in this, God?”
Maybe you’ve walked through a life-changing diagnosis, a loss, or a financial hit that left you feeling hopeless and led you to question God’s goodness.
Well, you’re not alone, friend.
Becoming a quadriplegic at the age of 17, and later facing cancer and chronic pain, Joni knows a thing or two about how powerfully God can work even in the midst of suffering.
Joni Eareckson Tada is an international advocate for people with disabilities. A diving accident in 1967 left Joni Eareckson, then 17, a quadriplegic in a wheelchair. After two years of rehabilitation, she emerged with new skills and a fresh determination to help others in similar situations.
She founded Joni and Friends International Disability Center in 1979 to provide Christ-centered ministry to special-needs families, as well as training for churches. Joni and Friends serves thousands of special-needs families through family retreats, and has delivered over 170,000 wheelchairs and Bibles to needy individuals with disabilities in developing nations.
