A Legacy of Faith
As we honor fathers this month I can’t help but think of my own, who was peacefully promoted to Heaven earlier this year. Bill Trammell was such an incredible man of God, leading our family with integrity and creating a lasting legacy of blessing through one simple act of surrender.
While still a teenager he strayed from the path of faith first forged by my grandfather, E.C. Trammell, but my dad ultimately laid down his life in exchange for the riches of God’s grace one Sunday morning. That choice has forever impacted generations, being multiplied many times over as our family has grown over the years.
The gift of this amazing legacy is something I’m excited to celebrate! So I hope you’ll tune in for a special Joni Table Talk June 22 and join me in honoring my father—and every man who chooses the path of surrender. Through their selfless sacrifice, a beautiful tapestry of faith is woven together by God’s love and endures through His blessings!

What a beautiful year this will be for our Rachel Lamb Brown! Not only did she recently turn 30, but she and my son-in-love, Joshua Brown, have announced they will soon be proud parents.
Arriving in August, this latest addition to our family will join my three other grandchildren—Israel, Arielle, and Asher—who have brought me more joy than I can describe. They are truly a blessing my sweetheart and I can’t wait to share with you each week!
With that said, my hope is you’ll stand with us in believing for a healthy pregnancy for Rachel and Josh. They will be such wonderful parents to this new little one, and so I’m thankful for every single prayer from my incredible Daystar Family!
Rachel Turns 30!
On a chilly winter day 30 years ago, a beautiful blonde entered our world and has been sharing her warmth ever since!
This month our oldest daughter, Rachel Lamb Brown, celebrates a milestone birthday and we couldn’t be prouder of the woman of God, wife, and hard-working Director of Communications at Daystar she’s become. My sweetheart and I have enjoyed sharing each of our children with you and seeing them uniquely serve the Lord in life and ministry through every season.
That’s why I hope you’ll join me in believing the best is yet to come for Rachel. With her passion for God and love for people, the future is indeed bright—and your prayers will help make it possible!
Merry Christmas from the Lamb Family
It’s hard to believe the holiday season is here again! This past year has flown by, which is why I often think of Christmas as a time to not only rejoice, but to also reflect.
In quiet moments with the Lord, I think back on the months that have led me here and ask the Holy Spirit to speak to my heart. Many times, He’ll give me Heaven’s perspective on the past and encourage me about the future—I truly cherish every word!
So as you make plans to open presents this holiday season, I pray you’ll also make time to open your heart. Let God speak words that fill you with peace, joy, and comfort this Christmas and throughout the New Year!
Giving Thanks: It’s Good for You
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.” Philippians 4:6-7a (NLT)
In tough times, giving thanks can feel like a tall order. So why would God ask us to do it while still surrounded by a situation with no resolution in sight?
A short and simple answer: It’s good for you.
When life’s challenges loom large, gratitude is a gentle reminder that your problems are small potatoes when compared with God’s power. Even when we’re surrounded by evil, we can thank the Father for His faithfulness—trusting He can redeem every situation for His glory and our good. (Romans 8:28)
In fact, being thankful is downright therapeutic. Bringing healing to troubled hearts, it turns our attention away from fear and focuses on God’s goodness, grace, and mercy.
So I want to encourage you today that while I may not know what you’re going through, the Lord does—and He loves you. Instead of letting worry steal your joy this holiday season, I hope you’ll pray about whatever you’re facing and give thanks for the many moments God has come through in your life.
What follows will be peace beyond anything you could ever imagine—and that, my friend, is a sweet reason to celebrate. Happy Thanksgiving!
