Activist Faith

My friends at Joni and Friends serve the disability community in incredible ways. Through their programs with schools, local churches, conferences, and mission outreaches around the world, they are the premiere Christian organization representing the needs of the disabled.

Recently, founder Joni Eareckson Tada recieved the incredible honor of winning the Christian Retailers Choice Award in the Social Issues category. The details are below. If you haven’t seen her latest book Life in the Balance, please make sure to get a copy today and experience the stories that are changing lives.

From Joni and Friends:

Christian retailers across the country have chosen the winning products in the 11th annual Retailers Choice Awards, sponsored by Christian Retailing magazine. Among a record 350-plus nominations in 39 categories, 41 winners were voted as best of the year – we are thrilled that Life in the Balance, written by Joni and Friends, won best book for 2011 in the Social Issues category! Many congratulations to our Joni and Friends’ Christian Institute on Disability for their hard work in writing both Life in the Balance and the accompanying study guide – to God be the glory! Are you looking for a new topic of study for your small group?
