Despite the health and economic crisis affecting the world during most of 2020, this unexpected pandemic has also shown a positive side: people who are willing to go beyond their limits to help the world.
This interview, produced by The Daily Signal, reveals the extraordinary testimony of a great example of resilience, empowerment and caring for others, from a woman whose mission in life is to help others during these difficult times.
After spending more than 50 years in a wheelchair as a quadriplegic, Joni Eareckson Tada is still sharing a message of life and hope with the world. When she learned that she would never walk again, she most likely would not have believed that she would become a renowned artist, author and founder of a powerful ministry to the disabled called Joni & Friends.
In this must-read interview, Joni shares her powerful story, explains her works on The Heritage Foundation’s National Coronavirus Recovery Commission, and offers us all some much-needed hope. “I think gratitude with the mouth stirs up gratitude in the heart, and so that’s good advice, whether you’re a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew, whoever. Good advice for anybody who’s feeling discouraged, or has lost their job, or perhaps lost a loved one during this terrible pandemic”, says Joni.
