Reviews about The Cure for the Chronic Life: Overcoming the Hopelessness That Holds You Back (7):

Saw this book reviewed on GMA, and still wasn't sure about it. Looked through it at the bookstore and bought it. And have not put it down since. Both Favre and Stanford hit on key points, such as how we can unknowingly get in our own way, and that Christ wants better for us. Then the book provides relevant examples along with Scripture for us to read and study so that we can understand God's word and work to overcome the challenges we face. I am truly enjoying this book and am referring it to friends.

"Cure" is another terrific addition to Shane Stanford's ever-expanding collection of inspirational literature. The pairing of Shane with Deanna provides an extra dimension of experience in conquering the "chronic" patterns of life into which we so easily fall. I also highly recommend "A Positive Life" which is an auto-biography of Shane's life as a hemophiliac and HIV survivor. As a hemophiliac, myself, who lost two brothers to AIDS/hepatitis, I could relate all too well to his compelling story. I have had the privelege of meeting Shane and his delightful family in person and my life has been profoundly changed by this remarkable man.

I loved this line. Trust in God's economy. It is never weak, undervalued or close to collapse. And: What would happen with a spiritual diet--disciplines like prayer and fasting, Bible study, serving? Are you gaining spiritual muscle or fat?
There was a story in the book about two men quarreling. One of their spouses said to call the other. "Someone has to act like Jesus."
Love Jesus and Love Like Jesus were two rules shared with a friend.
Loved the ending prayer in the book, condensed here: I want to be all you have created in me. Make me holy. Draw me close to your heart. I want to be whole and useful. I want to be yours. Give me Jesus and I am complete.
You're diseased, I'm afraid. Not sure what can heal it either. It's life. And it's chronic. You ever feel hopeless? Like you're just living live without rhyme or reason, purpose or plan? Deanna Favre and Shane Stanford have a solution. In The Cure of the Chronic Life, they take the reader on a 40 day journey towards hope.

Beginning with seven worries and ending in seven wonders, the reader is walked through the CURE. Compassion teaches us to go beyond our own struggles to see the struggles of others. Understanding involves see our life as God sees our life. Response is about loving others just as God loved us. And Encouragement means becoming the blessing we have received in Christ.

The meat of the book is spent in devotionals that practically show the power of CURE. Forty days of devotionals mean ten each are spent discussing or portraying the concepts within CURE. Broken down into a Scripture reading, devotional (Discover), reflective questions (Deepen), practical suggestions (Deploy), and a final prayer (Discern), this book is just what the doctor ordered to cure the chronic life!

The devotions themselves are powerful stories that come from either Deanna or Shane's lives. Deanna Favre is a breast-cancer survivor, the President/CEO of Favre 4 Hope Foundation, and wife of legendary NFL quarterback Brett Favre. Shane is a pastor who is HIV-positive due to a tainted blood transfusion. Both have been through the valley of the chronic life, but through the life-changing power of Christ, have overcome their hopelessness and now share that experience with you.

In the midst of hopelessness we are pointed toward Grace. And thus we come victorious. This is a great daily devotional that could also serve well as a Sunday School or small group discussion. Favre and Stanford remind us that whatever the problem, whatever the struggle, whatever the question, whatever the crisis - the answer lies in our relationship with God.
