Joni Erickson Tada October 21, 2020

In 1967, Joni (Joanie) Erickson Tada, a promising teenage athlete, broke her neck in a diving accident, leaving her totally paralyzed. She spent twenty-five years in a wheelchair, but then failing health forced her to go back to bed. Her loving husband Ken hung a bird feeder outside her window. Watching the birds, she remembered that Jesus said we are all worth more than sparrows. Joni, now an author, artist, Founder and Host of Joni and Friends, wrote, “ If the great God of heaven concerns Himself about a little ragtag sparrow, He cares about me.” She thought, how God must have loved us, to give Jesus His Son to provide forgiveness, cleansing and someday a home in heaven. Joni’s story reminds us that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
