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.
Chronic Conditions: Chronic Illness, Mental Illness, Chronic Pain & Disability
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.

From the Blog
For the past few weeks, I have been dealing with sciatic pain – sometimes mild and sometimes excruciating. I had a hard time describing it to others. The Chronic Joy printable, Metaphor: The Language of Pain caught my eye. I thought to myself, Wow, that’s just what I need!
"The best way to be holy is to be grateful." I had to become practical. How could I make sure gratitude didn't get shoved off my to-do list? I choose to intentionally notice the small moments and am grateful for these gifts.
