Are you organizing a
hopekeepers table
at your ministry fair?

Be sure to check out the hopekeepers goodies to help your table shine*

All hopekeepers group information is updated on the web site. If your group is not listed, please send in a registration form. If your group is no longer meeting, please let us know.

We're looking for a hopekeepers group that would be profiled in a soon-to-be issue of hopekeepers Magazine. A photo and brief article are requested, help is available with the article if needed. Email Lisa


for you, your web site or church/support group newsletter!


Lisa has written a number of articles that are making their way around the internet as "free material" that can be used in ezines, on your web site, etc. These are a great way to spread the message about chronic illness and also the ministry!

You may reprint them in a church newsletter too! You can find everything at Faith Writers and you don't have to ask permission to reprint them (but we'd love to know where they are printed- we may even mention your church!)

Some titles include:

    • Hospital Visits: What Do You Talk About?
    • 6 Ways to Let Those with Chronically Illness in
      Your Church Know You Care
    • My Medical Records: Why Can't I See Them?
    • 8 Ways to Encourage a Chronically Ill Mom
    • Are there Medical Benefits to Video Games?
    • 6 Ways Anyone Can Lose a Few Pounds This Summer
    • Celebrating Today Despite Living with Illness
    • Illness Isn't an Excuse for Not Guarding Our Words
    • Learning to be Assertive Despite the Fatigue of Illness
