EPISODE 10: Suffering Courageously: an interview with Joni Eareckson Tada

Joni Eareckson Tada has survived over 50 years as a quadriplegic, and recently has been battling breast cancer. It is an honor to have a conversation with not only a hero of the Christian faith, but a woman we look up to. Her unique story will inspire and encourage you, unlike anything else you’ve heard before.  

“True maturity, true joy, true contentment, has less to do with a mechanistic assessment of God’s plan and purposes for your life, and more to do with being pushed into, and at times shoved and pressed up against the breast of Jesus Christ until your heart begins beating in rhythm with his.” – J. E.T.

What is the hope you can offer to someone whose life has been turned upside down by disability? What can they hold on to? Mothers or fathers of kids with disabilities, or those disabled themselves?

“When you are decimated by affliction, when you are down for the count, you learn that the Bible’s answers are never meant to be separated from the tender, sweet, holy, precious God of the Bible.” –  J.E.T.

Joni is here to share her moving testimony and Godly wisdom! We hope you listen in and are as uplifted as we both were!
