Six Anchors to Buoy the Spirit

The Waiting RoomI've not known the journey of cancer personally, but I've experienced the depths of other valleys.

This October 3rd marks 3 years since Joni Eareckson Tada finished chemotherapy.  In this month's "Joni and Friends®" programs, Joni shares about the six anchors which buoyed her spirit on her cancer journey -- anchors which should encourage listeners no matter what "valleys" they face today:

1. You're not alone.  Joni reminds us that even in a big chemo chair, God is sitting next to us.

2. God is sovereign.  We look at life's challenges through a narrow lens while ...

“The Waiting Room”
