{A few months ago, the pastor’s wife wanted to talk to me about my health and I was thinking... oh no, one more person’s comments that will crush me, and it wasn’t the case at all. She introduced me to Chronic Joy and it was everything I had been looking for all this time! I didn’t feel alone in my struggles and I felt encouraged, not discouraged. It really brought me out of a really hard season and I’m happy to have a small group that I’m leading now to encourage others. Now we have each other for support and it feels good to let it all out. Thank you! I’m extremely grateful for your ministry. All churches need this ASAP! There are so many people hurting and not getting the kind of support they need. God is good!

{The mission behind the organization is that of hope. Whether your are in the midst of a medical issue, being a caretaker, or struggling in any other way, Chronic Joy can speak to you where you are. I feel that is a huge blessing to those in these situations. Showing people the love of Christ and that there is hope is priceless, and I enjoy supporting a cause like this because I find that I am blessed in the midst of all of it as well.

Having a daughter, now 37, who is medically fragile, we often felt the need for a place or a group, where we could share our story. A place where others could relate and understand the daily stress and struggles we face.
Chronic Joy provides such a place. People who deal daily with chronic Illness and understand. It is a group of people who are committed to its mission statement. The support, the prayer, the programs, the resources and the fellowship are a true blessing.

Thank you so…so…much for all you are doing. We [ Stoney Church] are so excited about this opportunity to study Jesus’ words in such a dynamic way [Chronic Joy Thrive Series]. I pray God will bless this outreach.

I have lived with chronic pain for many years. With our Lords love and through your ministry, I am very ‘hopeful’ about my future. I will continue to follow your website and pray for those individuals who live with chronic pain.

Our daughter leaned to me during your presentation and whispered how you used all the words we do to describe her days. Her tears came from the point when you talked about being a burden. She so connected with that even though we reassure her that she is never a burden; it is still hard not to feel that way. … We really appreciate that you stood in front of so many and gave a face and words to invisible chronic illness.

You might wonder why I am requesting books [Discovering Hope]. Because surely I want to help my people who are suffering for information in Kenya. … I thank God because I have received the books and I promise that I am going to use them and help my people.
