Strong Women

Jul 5, 2023

During our season break, we’re looking back at some of our first and favorite episodes. In this conversation with Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni shares her journey from being a young athlete to a quadriplegic and how God has used this as an invitation for her to know Him better. A few years after her accident, she founded Joni and Friends, which has impacted so many families and people with disabilities
