What could an HIV-positive minister and the wife of one of the NFL s greatest players have in common? Deanna Favre and Shane Stanford both have lived through difficult life situations and illnesses, and both have overcome the propensity for chronic hopelessness to discover the transforming grace and strength of God.

While Deanna and Shane are survivors of chronic illness, they are also survivors of the types of chronic life situations we have all experienced that oftentimes come to define our perspectives of self, others, and God, and which can lead us to feel that our life is in a crisis. Deanna and Shane believe that the answers to our common, most-enduring questions are found within our relationship with God, especially as these questions are shared, expressed, and lived out in faithfulness with each other.

God, through Scripture, provides the answers in four primary categories: Compassion, Understanding, Response, and Encouragement. And the answers show how God s CURE can change every aspect of our lives forever, by unveiling the seven wonders of living in Christ. The book concludes with a 40-day spiritual treatment plan that can be used as a devotional guide and provides practical, daily life lessons and scriptural wisdom. This plan shows readers how God wants a new, healthy, and complete life for us.

The CURE for the Chronic Life is more than another devotional or self-help book. It is about story the stories of Deanna and Shane, the stories of those whom they love and who have made a difference in their lives. It is also about your story, and, most important, the story of God and God s love for us. And in a beautiful way, all of these stories are amazingly knitted together in the same fabric.
