Pastor Shawn ThorntonPastor Shawn leads one of the most influential churches in Southern California, and it's just down the freeway from Joni and Friends — recently, I zipped over to his recording studio to do a 2-part interview on his program, “All Things New.” We talked about my accident, battle with breast cancer, and struggle with chronic pain — and how having a supportive community and the hope of Jesus has made ALL the difference in my life. Because it’s through community, prayer, and the Word of God that joy really is possible when you’re deep in hardship. If you live in SoCal, tune in today 3/14 and tomorrow 3/15 on the following stations — or you can always listen online at Pastor Shawn’s website. And if you're looking for fresh encouragement for your days, consider downloading Shawn's podcast on “All Things New.” This remarkable Christian leader has GOOD things to say!

Joni has long been a favorite of mine for how she handles adversity so graciously with her faith!! Your inspiration to so many of us Joni and thankful for how you taught by example to so many of us how to be daughters of Christ not in spite of tough trials but to embrace trials and to turn to the word of God and His presence in all things and especially those gut wrenching times were all hope would be lost without Him!! My little brother Tommy who lived his last 5 years on a ventilator had your same courageous strength and grace in the face of some horrific days health wise! Amazing how Romans 8:28 has been shown and lived out so many times in this gracious lady's life! To Pastor Shawn Thornton of how fortunate we all are for the man of God you are and all He has done in and through your ministry!! ❤️🙏 may God continue to bless you both and your ministries as you so diligently seek Him which is so evident in your teachings!! ❤️🙏😇
