Creative ways to love one another.

Discover creative ways to encourage others and to motivate them toward acts of compassion, doing beautiful works as expressions of love. (Hebrews 10:24, paraphrase)


Creative expressions of love invite us to join with the Father’s heart, spurring us on to do good deeds. How do we begin when everything seems like a mountain we can’t quite climb? What happens when we think we aren’t creative or when we just don’t have much energy?

We simply take a step. Just one.

Six years ago, when God breathed life into Chronic Joy, we began with a single step of faith Step by step, we continued to follow as God led. While there is still a mountain to climb, Chronic Joy has grown into a global resource ministry dedicated to compassionately serving all those affected by chronic illness, mental illness, chronic pain, and disability.

From the beginning, we have pursued and facilitated creative ways for each of us to love and serve one another – to be the Body of Christ here on earth.


Creative Ways to Get Started

Download or print out the guides and send them to someone who needs a little encouragement – someone who needs to be reminded that they are seen, thought of, prayed for, and cared about.

Stroll through our blog posts. Most include audio recordings, so you can listen to real voices reading compelling stories. Then take a minute and introduce those you love to Chronic Joy by sharing a post you particularly enjoyed with someone who might be feeling anxious, isolated, or lonely.

Spend an afternoon scrolling through the thousands of beautiful FREE, faith-based images. As the inspirational quotes nourish your soul, download the photos that speak to your heart, then text, email, or message an image to a friend, neighbor, or loved one. Share the blessing!
