Joni: An Unforgettable Story #JoniBook

His Alone Class & Joni: An Unforgettable StoryIn a split second, the lives of some are transformed forever.

This was the reality for Joni Eareckson Tada who, in one split second, went from being an active young woman to facing every day in a wheelchair.

And as this month marks the 40th anniversary of her award-winning autobiography, Joni: An Unforgettable Story, I thought it fitting to share it with my Sunday School Class.  Our class of single women includes those who have never been married as well as those whose lives have been changed in a split second when a husband has left a marriage or ...

Avoiding Politics?

Yes, it's only the end of May and I think most of us would say that we've become weary of this election season, highly anticipating the final result in November.

My teenage daughter groans when she hears discussion about the political candidates on the radio; she's "so over it!"  I have to admit that I'm pretty over it, too.  But, we know that it's important for us to stay informed and be involved so that we can speak out about the important issues, when needed.
