His Majesty in Brokenness by Judy Squier
Born without complete legs, Judy watched others have all the fun. As she wore her orthopedic shoes, she had no idea what God could do with her brokenness.
How do you go on after losing the love of your life?
Shepherd, I need you now has been Judy’s distress call throughout her life. Psalm 23’s Shepherd was her companion as a disabled child. As a wife. As a mother and grandmother. But what about this crisis? How would a woman born without legs—who relied on her husband’s legs for nearly 50 years—manage life without him?
New Every Day, by Dave Meurer
Alzheimer’s. It barges into your life, breaks your heart, bewilders your mind, disrupts your plans, impacts your finances, and consumes enormous amounts of time and energy. When someone you love has Alzheimer’s, you need more than just information on the disease–you need a break. You need a laugh. You need a friend by your side who knows exactly what you’re going through.

Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
In 1992 Mary Jane Ponten, a retired widow with cerebral palsy, and John Nix, a father of twin daughters with cerebral palsy, founded Mephibosheth Ministry to communicate to the churches, community groups, and others the importance of reaching out to families affected by disabilities to build a community of love, care, and compassion.
Mary Jane became ill while traveling to Ghana in 2020 to celebrate the 16 year anniversary of the school for disabled children Mephibosheth started. Greg and Carol Brown were her choice to take over the ministry.
Having worked along side of Mary Jane for over 15 years, Greg and Carol hope to honor what Mary Jane and John Nix began.
Since founded, Mephibosheth Ministry has been active in over 28 countries, bringing the good news of hope and support available to parents, siblings, and families through their local church communities.
