Joni Eareckson Tada is the founder and CEO of Joni and Friends International Disabilities Center. She shares a memory of her father. There on the Delaware shore on the Atlantic Coast, camping, steaming clams, Joni’s father spoke words that instilled a foundation of vision and hope. Years later, even after a diving accident left her a quadraplegic, those words materialized in her ministry. How powerful are the words we use? Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Joni’s father spoke words of life to her as a little girl and she never forgot it. Let’s do the same with those around us.
