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-whether it's something as simple as an ache or a bad attitude, or as complicated as a broken relationship or a debilitating disease-situations that oftentimes can lead us to feel that our life is in a crisis. In this book, Deanna and Shane discuss their personal journeys and offer a word of hope for those going through life's everyday struggles, The first part of the book is framed in the language of questions and answers, hope and despair, ache and healing, and it takes a look at The Seven Worries of Living in Crisis. In the second part of the book, Deanna and Shane share how they believe that the answers to our common, most-enduring questions are found within our relationship with God; and that God, through Scripture, provides those answers in four primary categories: Compassion, Understanding, Response, and Encouragement. These answers, the authors tell us, show how God's CURE can change every aspect of our lives forever, by unveiling The Seven Wonders of Living in Christ. Through this book, Deanna and Shane want to share the message that God's wonderful gift to us through Christ not only addresses our old hurts, habits, and hangups, it also gives us a new path and a new opportunity for grace, healing, and a new beginning.
