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.

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.

MENTAL ILLNESS

Too often, stigma, isolation, loneliness and shame follow a diagnosis of mental illness. But not here. Here we offer resources steeped in love and grounded in faith. Here you are among friends, welcome just as you are.

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.

PARENTING

Raising a child with chronic illness requires more strength, resolve and courage than we ever dreamed possible, yet it also draws us closer to God as we learn to lean deep, love sacrificially, shift our perspective, and be fully present.

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.

When asked, “What is something that surprised you about chronic illness?” my mind was overloaded with thoughts. There are so many things that have surprised me in my journey as a “heart mom.” I thought of all the unforeseen things I’ve experienced, all the relationships and...
