Are you living in crisis or in Christ? Deanna Favre, breast-cancer survivor and wife of NFL legend Brett Favre, and Shane Stanford, an HIV-positive pastor, have something in common. Both have battled life-threatening illnesses, and both have overcome chronic hopelessness to discover the transforming strength of God. Deanna and Shane understand those everyday struggles that cause us to feel our life is in a crisis, whether it’s something as simple as an ache or a bad attitude, or as complicated as a broken relationship or a debilitating disease. In The Cure for the Chronic Life, Deanna and Shane show listeners how Christ’s redeeming love will speak to the deepest of our struggles and hurts, answer the deepest of our questions, and put us on a new path toward healing and grace.

"Rebecca Gallagher gives an appealingly earnest reading of this Christian guidance manual for combating chronic stress patterns. The authors offer four 10-day "spiritual treatment plans" that are centered on compassion, understanding, responding, and encouragementstrategies based on the ideas that love, self-honesty, and community are necessary foundations for resisting stress and the temptations of modern life. With examples from the Bible and thought-provoking questions, they describe seven sources of chronic stress: meaningless relationships, the accumulation of mental and emotional garbage, misguided priorities, false idols, issues with humility, addictions, and misguided community engagements. Framing stress in these clusters will help listeners see that even pervasive stress patterns can be shaken off if they focus on Gods grace and look for His intentions when life threatens their equilibrium."
