God-Living with Chronic IllnessGod Living with Chronic Illness – This site is the result of a deep desire in founder, Laurie Shoquist Miller’s heart to help and encourage others with chronic illness. Laurie was diagnosed with fibromyalgia when her kids were two and four. At that time, there were not a lot of resources for anyone with chronic illness. She searched for websites, books, ANYTHING to tell her how to be a Godly wife and parent with chronic pain. After several years, she finally began to find information about “good” living with fibromyalgia (in terms of physical wellness) but nothing for “God” living—nothing to tell her how to manage a life that included chronic illness with God’s wisdom, grace and strength. So she decided to start a blog to help others with chronic illness find the things she was desperately seeking and God-Living with Chronic Illness was born. Living well with chronic illness is a daily process of relying on God for the grace and strength to keep going. Laurie has found that we find the most peace as we let God meet our needs one day at a time. May His peace and presence be your constant companion and guide.

Primarily reader-written…JBU cover topics on family life, marriage, your relationship with Christ, and life’s struggles, as well as providing resources for doing ministry and everything in between.
