GIVING HEARTS • MAKING A DIFFERENCE
God has guided Chronic Joy every step of the way as we have grown through the years! It is my privilege to share a snapshot of the 10 vital programs that serve our growing community.
Henri Nouwen’s words are a great place to begin: “However, community is first of all a quality of the heart. It grows from the spiritual knowledge that we are alive not for ourselves but for one another. Community is the fruit of our capacity to make the interests of others more important than our own. The question, therefore, is not ‘How can we make community?’ but, ‘How can we develop and nurture giving hearts?'”
We offer a wide variety of programs to meet the needs of all those affected by chronic illness, mental illness, chronic pain, and disability.

Chronic Joy® Access
Opening Doors. Removing Barriers. Accessibility is an invitation to broaden our perspectives, choosing the simple kindness of including one another, opening doors, and removing barriers.
Making the Journey Easier for All of Us
PASS IT ON! is an invitation to pass on the love and kindness of God – making the journey easier for all of us. Write hope-filled #PenToPaper notes. Share encouraging books, blogs, and websites. Knit prayer shawls. Welcome others into the Chronic Joy community.
When we are kind and generous with ourselves, we can pour kindness and love overflowing into others. Take time and take care of you, because you are God’s beloved.
Prayer is a precious invitation to simply be with Jesus.
Slow down. Breathe deep and draw near to God, experiencing His Presence in abundant, exceptional, and wildly generous ways.
