Thrive in a life with chronic illness.Chronic Joy is a global resource ministry dedicated to compassionately serving all those affected by chronic illness, mental illness, chronic pain, and disability by providing accessible, easy-to-use, faith-based educational tools and resources.

CHRONIC ILLNESS

Chronic illness is hard, but you are not alone. Join fellow travelers on this journey through loss and grief, laughter and hope. For no matter how dark the days, how wild the storm, or how long the winter, there is hope. There is always hope.

RESOURCES

CAREGIVING

Caregivers walk their own unique path through chronic illness – a role that is simultaneously exhausting and meaningful, isolating and joy-filled. Life as a caregiver can be difficult, but it is also deeply valued.

RESOURCES

MENTAL ILLNESS

Stigma, isolation, loneliness, and shame often follow a diagnosis of mental illness, but not here. Chronic Joy offers resources for mental health steeped in love and grounded in faith. Here, mental illness is a brave journey of mercy multiplied.

CHILDREN & TWEENS

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.

TEENS & YA

The young adult 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.

RESOURCES

MARRIAGE

Navigating marriage with chronic illness can be difficult and lonely, but it can also become a beautiful opportunity to learn patience, humility, forgiveness, tenderness and sacrifice – gifts of a love forged in the fire, love that will stand the test of time.

RESOURCES

CHURCHES

COMPASSION. INCLUSION. RELATIONSHIP. Resources created and curated by those who understand the sweeping impact of chronic illness, mental illness, chronic pain, and disability on every aspect of life. Vital, practical, Christ-centered and inclusive. Together, we are the Body of Christ on earth.

LEADERS

Community. It feels like hope and it’s why small groups matter. So many in the chronic illness community feel a deep sense of isolation and loneliness. Small groups celebrate together, suffer together, pray together, and learn to lean on and trust in God together.

Seeds of Depression

Seeds of Depression

When it comes to helping someone I love, I cannot control how another person seeks healing. So, I will be sharing the journey through the eyes of the one who loves and sees and keeps trying, the one who grows tired but still can look out over the soil of a relationship and dream about seeds.
