Who better to begin the new year with than Joni Eareckson Tada? Joni is our FIRST PERSON guest with an update on her life and a conversation centered on her latest book, The Practice of the Presence of Jesus: Daily Meditations on the Nearness of Our Savior. Joni weaves contemporary insights with the timeless wisdom of seventeenth-century monk Brother Lawrence.
