Joni keeps her "dancing shoes" in her art studio as a reminder of her hope for a new body in Heaven--a "snazzy" pair of red high tops!

The "Theology of Suffering and Disability" course was first offered in the Spring 2008 semester at Biola.

Joni was awarded the William Ward Ayer Distinguished Service Award by the NRB for excellence in broadcast ministry in 2002.

Before a radio broadcast recording session, Joni will frequently sing a hymn.

Joni's response to the question, "What's the most important thing you do?" was "Being a good wife to my husband."  She went on to share, "When I stand before Jesus, I will be judged first for my faithfulness in my marriage.  My commitment to marriage vows places me in a profoundly significant relationship with the most important human being on earth.  My spouse.  If I can't be faithful in loving my husband, how can I tout "faithfulness" in ministry to millions?"

Ok . . . your turn -- think you can answer all 12?
