LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – MAY 2021

The Impact of a Godly Mother

Every great home starts with a strong foundation. My mother taught me that. Not just by her words, but by her actions. She always lived so unselfishly. No matter if it was cooking, cleaning, or washing clothes, she did it all every day with love, dedication, and selflessness. I could feel it in her hugs and in the way that she loved all of us. But most importantly, it was in the way she loved the Lord. Even to this day, she continues to teach me what it looks like to be a strong woman of faith.

That legacy is what I have tried to carry into my relationship with my children. Each day, I have strived to live what I believe in front of them. To show them that God’s way is the best way, and if you surrender to His Will, God will take you to places you never even dreamed possible.

It’s not always been an easy journey, but what an adventure it has been! To see the young man and women they’ve become and the spouses they chose, it is such a great joy to know the fullness of the scripture, Proverbs 22:6, that says, “Train up a child in the way they should go; and when they’re older, they will not depart from it.”

As I look at my grandchildren and see how my daughters and daughter-in-love are continuing that legacy, the impact on these little ones is undeniable. So, to all you Godly mothers out there who are doing your best to sow faith, love, and character into your sons and daughters, and to the ones that are just starting that journey today, you are making a difference. It’s no small thing to shape a life, that’s why God made you stronger than you realize. So, from my family to yours, Happy Mother’s Day!

Whether you were encouraged by Dr. Marilyn Hickey’s word on generational blessing or had your eyes opened during the discussion on America’s hidden history with Dr. Thomas Horn and Pastor Jimmy Evans, we pray that the work God began during Heart for the World will be a launching pad for even greater things in your life.

 

Thank you for being a part of our Daystar family!

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – FEBRUARY 2021

2021: Re-Focus

Where does your hope lie? What do you put your trust in? These are the quintessential questions of our day, and how you answer them reveals something very important. Over the last year, we have faced obstacles that have shaken our very foundations in many ways, but it has also thrown back the curtain to show who really sits on the throne of our hearts. That’s why we kicked off the year with our Refreshing Times Devotional Series. It has helped remind each of us of the only secure place to put your trust – Jesus.

It’s through Christ that God made a way for us to have relationship with Him, and He beckons us to step into a deeper walk of intimacy. So, I encourage you to lean into God this year. Silence the negative influences in your life and surround yourself with things that are good and holy. Things that lift you up and draw you more into His presence. There you find rest. Remember that He alone has all authority. He hears our prayers, and His heart is to see you prosper.

My challenge to you this year is to take up the Word of God. Make it part of your everyday. Let it be life-giving bread. Find quiet time to be alone with the Lord. Listen for the Lord’s voice. Strengthen your sprit man by fasting and seeking the Lord’s guidance. Let your hope rest solely and confidently on Him. And most of all, love God wildly, fearlessly, and boldly.

Refreshing Times

With the uncertainty of this past year, we all could use some refreshing. I’m talking a total recharge. It’s so important that we invest in ourselves spiritually to grow, deepen, and mature our relationship with the Lord. And if this last year is any indicator, we need to hear the voice of the Lord every day of our lives. So, I wanted to start this year off with a special 21-part devotional series featuring anointed women to speak encouragement, build your faith, and give you wisdom for taking your relationship with Jesus to a deeper level.

This January we’re bringing you the Refreshing Times devotional series to help equip you for walking in power and carrying God’s presence with you everywhere you go. With powerful words from Marilyn Hickey, Wendy Treat, Natalie Grant, Anne Graham-Lotz, and so many more, you’ll be challenged and inspired to grow in God’s word and stand on the truth in this new season.

We’ll be sharing a new devotional each Monday this month on Joni Table Talk – so be sure to tune in! You’ll also be able to make this devotion series part of your everyday routine by following along on Instagram as we bring you regular teachings to enhance your walk with the Lord. So be sure to follow me @JoniLamb and let’s join together to refresh our hearts and watch what God will do when we truly give Him the first fruits of our time this month.

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – DECEMBER 2020

This has been a year of big changes and the revealing of what’s really important in our lives. So, this Christmas, as you gather together with your loved ones, hold them close. Tell them how much they mean to you. And celebrate this season by remembering the reason for our hope. Jesus was the ultimate gift of love straight from the Father’s heart – a present so priceless that it changes hearts and lives. We hope you enjoy our family’s Christmas card this year, and may the prince of peace fill you with hope and joy this holiday season. Merry Christmas!

No Fear

A world-wide pandemic, racial tensions, political unrest… 2020 has seen them all. So it’s no wonder that God chose this year to bring “No Fear” to life.

The message of this song is so powerful and relevant, that we decided to share it LIVE on Daystar before it was even finished! Since that day, it has become a battle cry for believers around the world, reminding us of the power and authority we have through Jesus.

When we gathered to film the music video for “No Fear,” the atmosphere in the room was electric. There is such power in simply declaring the Word of God! If you missed the premiere on Daystar last month, you can see the music video now at DaystarSingers.com. I pray that this song continues to bless you and reminds you every day that you can live with NO FEAR!

Vaccines

The Unauthorized Truth

People are sometimes surprised by the controversial topics we tackle on Joni Table Talk. But as Christians with the truth of God’s Word to guide us, there’s no reason to shy away from tough issues. By facing them head on, we can shine His light into dark places and bring freedom to captives!

Whether it’s a former pornography star, a mom who’s had an abortion, or a man set free from transsexuality, the testimonies shared around the table are always so powerful to me. Because while we could debate theology all day long, it’s impossible to argue with a life that’s been changed! I think that’s why I have been so moved over the years listening to mothers tell the stories of how vaccines have changed their children.

As a mom and grandmother myself, this issue is close to my heart. I encourage parents everywhere to educate themselves on the dangerous ingredients and side effects of vaccines – but I know that information can be hard to find. So we’ve gathered all of our interviews and stories on the subject in one place to make it easy for anyone to hear the truth! Now at Daystar.com/Vaccines you can hear the stories first-hand and be empowered to make informed, confident decisions about your family’s health!

It’s A Boy!

With friends and family joining the fun, blue streamers burst through the summer sky finally revealing the gender of sweet Baby Brown—due this month!

As always, I’m thrilled to welcome another grandchild into the world. And I hope you’ll join me in praying for parents-to-be, Josh and Rachel, as they begin their greatest adventure yet.

 

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – JULY 2020

What makes a great song? For me, its powerful lyrics and the anointing they carry with them. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved getting lost in the presence of the Lord through a great worship song, and one psalmist’s words in particular always touched my heart. Her name was Fanny Crosby.

Though she was blind, she had such vision for the things of God, and it poured out of her pen into the words of some of the most beloved hymns of the last 100 years. To this day, churches all over the world sing “Blessed Assurance,” “To God Be the Glory,” and “Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior” on any given Sunday. She just had a way of capturing the majesty and beauty of walking with the Lord. Always transparent and tender, her words continue to inspire and lead congregations into that secret place at the foot of God’s throne.

Having been ministered to through her music for almost my entire life, it was such an honor to have the opportunity to help put music to some of her previously unreleased lyrics. So, with the help of my son-in-love Joshua Brown, we set out to share these unknown gems with a new generation of listeners. To bring these songs to life, I enlisted a few of my friends, like Fred Hammond, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Russ Taff, Nicole C. Mullen and more.

This month on Joni Table Talk we’re bringing you a special two-part look at Fanny Crosby, the influence she’s had on each of us, and performances of these new songs. Be sure to tune in and watch on July 15 & 16. I can hardly wait for you to dive into God’s presence through the music of this beloved songwriter!

And I’m excited to let you know you can now experience the power of this anointed worship any time with your own copy of Fanny Crosby & Friends: It Was Love! This month only, when you make a special donation to Daystar, we’ll send you this incredible gift as our way of saying thank you for helping us spread the power and love of the Gospel all around the world.

And as you enter into worship with the music of Fanny Crosby, I truly believe you will step into an atmosphere where your weaknesses and struggles are met by God’s supernatural strength. Through this powerful collection of songs, I pray you will discover the life-changing love of God and His power to redeem, restore, and release you to live in the fullness of His grace. So, no matter what you’re facing today, find freedom from every fear and frustration through worship with Fanny Crosby & Friends: It Was Love!

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – JUNE 2020

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!

A Place to Find Hope

Today there are people around the world walking through a season that’s made them feel small and needy. And if you’re one of them let me encourage you that while you may feel alone, you have not been abandoned.

Gods sees your situation. And although this journey is not one you would’ve chosen, you can trust Him to safely guide you along the way.

With that in mind, I invite you to explore a few of my favorite things from Daystar’s newly opened online store at shop.daystar.com to help you stay healthy and full of faith as you look to the future.

I believe these resources can be helpful tools as you draw close to God in this season of uncertainty. Remember, no matter what you’re going through HE IS FAITHFUL. So I pray you’ll embrace His love and let Him guide you along a path that leads to peace and rest.

Oh Baby!

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!

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – NOVEMBER 2019

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!

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – OCTOBER 2019

Welcome, Asher!

He’s finally here! On September 4, our family officially welcomed Jonathan and Rebecca’s son, Asher Samuel Weiss, into the world and we couldn’t be happier. Measuring 8 lbs. and 14 oz., he’s a healthy baby boy and we’re praising God!

Both Rebecca and Jonathan are also doing well, and my sweetheart and I are so grateful for your prayers and support throughout this pregnancy. My hope is that you’ll continue lifting up these first-time parents as they navigate their new reality of life with a little one.

Babies are such a blessing and I’m thankful to share this sweet bundle of joy with you—my Daystar Family around the world!

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – SEPTEMBER 2019

We are so excited to welcome Baby Weiss into the world this month! But before he arrives, we just had to celebrate with a shower.

From games and gifts to snacks and sweets, our friends and family gathered to show this little one some love. And as we eagerly await his arrival, I hope you’ll join me in praying for Rebecca and my son-in-love Jonathan Weiss as they prepare to be first-time parents.

In the meantime, “Noni” and “Poppy” are counting the moments! We can’t wait hold another bundle of joy and share this sweet blessing from Heaven with you.

Redeeming Time

A Joni Table Talk Special Series with Troy Brewer

Ever wonder why God created time?

If so, you’re not alone as many have wrestled with the reality of the ticking clock and how to make every moment count. But from reconciling the pain of your past to filling your heart with faith for the future, you can rest assured that God wants to reveal Himself through time – freeing you to live in fullness!

August 5-6, author and prophetic voice, Troy Brewer, will join me on Joni Table Talk to share the compelling two-part series, “Redeeming Time.” In this groundbreaking teaching, which includes powerful perspective on end-time prophecy, you’ll uncover God’s divine design for time and how to live without fear in the present.

Through these special programs, I believe the Lord will heal your heart from past hurts and renew your joy for the journey ahead. Keep in mind God lives outside of time, and He’s not bound by the clock or shackled by changing seasons.

So whether you’re ashamed of what’s already been or afraid of what will be, you can find freedom in Christ. My prayer is that you’ll tune in for these special shows and invite Jesus into your past, present, and future. He wants to meet you in the moments of life and reveal His extravagant love by “Redeeming Time!”
