Backstage with Joni Eareckson Tada & Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Friday night—just after Joni Eareckson Tada spoke on forgiveness at True Woman '12—I caught her backstage for a quick interview. I haven't stopped thinking about her words since.

Most of you probably know that Joni has been a quadriplegic for forty-five years.

If you're struggling with anger and bitterness toward God about a situation in your own life—if you're asking "why?" with a clenched fist—then this video is for you.

It's also for anyone who is just feeling down in the dumps. Joni's comment about why she sings is the sentence I can't shake. So if you catch me singing a lot more than normal, you'll know why!   

PS: Look for Joni's message--and all the other TW12 messages--on this week. We'll have audio posted as early as today, and will continue to add video and transcripts. Enjoy, and tell your friends! 


PPS: Want a faith booster? Listen in as Nancy shares a couple of stories of women who met Jesus this past weekend at True Woman '12. And then, please pray for them, that they would be rooted and built up in Christ. Thanks so much!
