Joni Eareckson Tada’s life was forever changed in an instant at the age of seventeen. A reckless dive into shallow water broke her neck, rendering her young, athletic body a quadriplegic, wheelchair-bound for the rest of her life. But instead of wallowing in misery, Joni found God in her disappointment and has lived a life of faithful triumph over pain and suffering, pointing others to a God of hope and love, ever since. Over fifty years after her accident, Joni is still impacting the world in extraordinary ways through her speaking, writing and ministry Joni and Friends. She joins us to talk about how she finds strength and joy for each day, the hope of heaven and what it means to her to be fearfully and wonderfully made. Joni’s story will give you the faith and courage to overcome the unthinkable in your own life and inspire you to press on with joy and perseverance.
