Psalm 68:6 says “God puts the lonely in families.” You may, in fact, have a wonderful family already, but feel a certain loneliness when it comes to others who understand what your daily life is like while living with chronic illness or pain.
The Rest Ministries Sunroom is our “social network.” It’s the “hub” of our entire ministry online where you can connect with other people.
You can ask questions and get feedback in the forum, join a group of people who you specifically relate to, like moms who homeschool, people who live with your particular illness, or the men’s group. There are loads of groups for whatever your needs are, even a group called, “Being a Parent with a Chronic Illness and have a Child with Special Needs.”
Find a pen pal or share what is on your mind in a blog post or even upload photos or videos.

Here is what some people have said about the Sunroom:
I just found this forum and am very thankful for everything that you all have shared. Since I’m unable to work I sometimes find that being home and “sick” all the time can be very lonely despite the fact that I have three (grown) children, a (wonderful) grand daughter, and a (cool) husband. Just being able to log on and talk or listen will be a blessing! Liza
What I love about the Sunroom the most is that no matter how long its been since I am here I always get a welcome back and it’s so wonderful to always know that we have such wonderful encouragement and support from everyone no matter what our struggles are. I love this place. It’s what got me going on doing what God wanted me to. I’ve been blessed with lots of good friends I have met as well. It’s given me the inspiration to reach out and share my life with others as well. God is at work here. Jolene
I love that we have that common thread called illness and we can totally relate to one another through our good days and bad here in the Sunroom. The diseases may be different, but the we know what it takes to get through chronic illness. It takes courage and will and strength to get through each day. But if we can share a kind or encouraging word here then somehow even the really bad days are a little easier to get through. Cheryl
