Creatively Express Your Story
We can feel isolated and powerless when living with chronic illness, but what if your story begins to bridge those barriers? What if your story offers a glimmer of hope to someone standing at the edge of hopelessness?
Step in slowly. Sit with God. Allow yourself time and space to feel and experience your pain. When you’re ready, take up your pen, and explore the precious and life-giving gift of lament.
God created us with a complex range of emotions which can be difficult to identify and explain. The Emotions Wheel is a tool designed to grow our emotional intelligence thus strengthening our relationship with God as well as our compassion and empathy for others.

This is the first study that helped answer our many questions. We highly recommend it to anyone dealing with this chronic issue too.
