Joni’s Story


In his message this past Sunday, Pastor Chad referenced an article by Joni Eareckson Tada.  Joni is the Founder and CEO of Joni and Friends International Disability Center and is an international advocate for people with disabilities. A diving accident in 1967 when she was 17 left her a quadriplegic in a wheelchair. During her rehabilitation, Joni spent long months learning how to paint with a brush between her teeth. She persistently prayed for healing.  To read the full article she wrote on why she praises God for not saying “yes” to healing her, click here.
