Making a difference one precious life at a time.

CHRONIC ILLNESS

Join fellow travelers affected by chronic conditions on this journey through loss and grieflaughter and hope. No matter how dark the days, how wild the storm, or how long the winter, there is hope. There is always hope.

RESOURCES

CAREGIVING

A caregiver’s role can be both rewarding and exhausting, difficult and joy-filled, meaningful and frustrating, isolating and inspiring. Step into hope, find purpose, embrace worth, and encounter God’s joy.

RESOURCES

MENTAL ILLNESS

Stigma, isolation, loneliness, and shame often follow a diagnosis of mental illness, but not here. With God mental illness has no stigma. Chronic Joy offers resources steeped in love and grounded in faith.

Children-Tweens

CHILDREN

A chronically ill child affects each family, and every family member, differently, often impacting a child’s development, behavior, self-awareness, independence, daily routines, recreational activities, and education. Yet illness can also be a catalyst to building lifelong compassion, resiliency, and faith.

RESOURCES

PARENTING

The keys to parenting when chronic illness is a member of the family are prayer; humor; flexibility; acknowledging loss, fear, and other uncomfortable emotions; embracing each member’s God-given worth; and loving one another deeply from the heart.

Chronic Joy Teens

TEENS

The teen years are filled with change. Chronic illness complicates all of it – independence, education, employment, social activities, dating, and relationships with family and friends. But it can also cultivate both strength and resilience as we learn to navigate pain, loss, suffering, and adversity, discovering what really matters.

Blessed In Dependence

Blessed In Dependence

We can either worry ourselves into despair or lean into the Lord’s help and care. For me, it’s a matter of admitting my desperate dependence on His strength and grace on both good days and bad.
