Los Angeles, California—Over 82 million people live with a disability or chronic illness in the United States. Despite these growing numbers, much of the general public remains untrained on how to include—instead of isolate—people with disabilities. Not wanting to offend, many wonder: What should I say? How can I help?

From helpful facts on disabilities to comforting Bible verses, Joni Eareckson Tada provides the practical tools anyone can use to reach out rather than withdraw in her 4 new Help a Friend pamphlets on disabilities, Autism, Grief, and Memory Loss. In each 20-page quick- reference pamphlet, she includes clear definitions, practical advice, and Bible-based wisdom from decades of experience to equip readers with encouragement, a healthy perspective, and fresh insights.

Now a spokesperson for those living with disabilities, Joni Eareckson Tada has lived with chronic pain and in a wheelchair for over 50 years. Eareckson Tada understands the isolation, heartbreak, and deep anguish that come with disabilities and she actively strives to offer hope and compassion to people struggling with health or emotional challenges.

Each Help a Friend pamphlet includes—

  • Introduction: explanation of the topic with encouragement to provide support and comfort
  • What to Expect: Brief stories, description of stages your friend is likely to experience, and how to respond.
  • How to Help: Quick tips for helping: actions/words that help; things to avoid or not to say; resource lists; indications for when to consult professional help, and more!
  • Encouragement: Bible verses and quotes related to the issue by Joni Eareckson Tada and others

These 20-page pamphlets will equip you with biblical wisdom and practical, time-tested advice from by Joni Eareckson Tada and to help you gain the confidence to walk beside your friends and loved ones towards God’s unique and glorious plan for them.
