WHAT IF PURPOSE LOOKS DIFFERENT THAN WE BELIEVE?
What if purpose isn’t defined by education, gifts or passion, by what we are able to do or by what we’ve lost due to chronic illness?
What if, instead, purpose simply draws us toward God? What if we are called to be instead of to do?
FINDING PURPOSE is a 10-chapter study inviting you to rethink your understanding of purpose, to release cultural definitions and to embrace God’s – a definition both rooted in timeless biblical truths and as refreshing as a gentle spring rain.
Coming in 2018!
GRACE, TRUTH & TIME is a valuable resource for leaders. Learn to lead through God’s grace; create a space for spiritual growth and healing; empathize, listen and engage with those in pain; grow in prayer and compassion; foster hope and encouragement; build small group communities that thrive.

“After losing our son to sudden cardiac death at age 32, our grief was overwhelming. That was 15 years ago. When we read DISCOVERING HOPE, we realized it could also help us deal with our grief. This is the first study that helped answer our many questions. We highly recommend it to anyone dealing with this chronic issue too.” DON and SUSIE SNIDER
“Lean into the precious truths embedded here and find your way into the only hope that will not disappoint.” MONICA KAYE SNYDER, writer and chronic illness warrior
“Purpose used to haunt me constantly. What if I could never again do the things I loved to do? What if chronic illness permanently ripped away and erased my old self? What if I can’t ever support myself? What future is there for someone like me? What I’ve discovered is that meaning is an inherent part of being alive. FINDING PURPOSE doesn’t have all the answers, but it is the first step on a journey that will change your life.” ~ SAM RE, chronic illness warrior
“It sounds cliché, but God spoke to me through the pages of FINDING PURPOSE. As I read each chapter, I was called to go deeper in Christ and to seek God’s true purpose for my life — what a humbling gift to know that although I’m still facing health challenges, I am loved and called by God for a specific purpose.” ~ GINA M. WEEKS, living with chronic illness
“FINDING PURPOSE brings to light the gift of our lives and of our calling.” ~ RACHEL THIEL, DPT, OS
“FINDING PURPOSE will help you push through chronic illness as a defining destiny, gloriously refining you through the living Word of God. Cindee’s personal journey has redefined her life purpose: “to hold hope, seek beauty, chase light and dance with words, because that is how [she] experiences the presence of God, and speaks life into a broken, hurting world.” ~ MARY ELIZABETH CASEY
“GRACE, TRUTH & TIME is both practical and beautifully written. Aptly titled after three qualities God uses to bring about spiritual growth, this guide offers insightful, concrete tips for every type of leader — from the first-time facilitator to the seasoned group leader.

As a companion resource to Chronic Joy’s THRIVE series, GRACE, TRUTH & TIME is the perfect resource to help get your group started.” ~ LAURA J. BOGGESS, licensed psychologist, author of Playdates with God: Having a Childlike Faith in a Grown Up World
