Our web site is quite large & has a variety of programs & resources. We’ve put together a list here of the things you should sign up for. We find that a lot of people feel ill-informed, & yet they don’t tend to sign up to receive information from our ministry.
We work hard to try to get you the answers to the questions you have, but we aren’t always able to answer emailed questions as quickly as we’d prefer. By reading the newsletters, you will stay much better informed.
 HopeNotes – This is our weekly ezine. You can read the most current issue of HopeNotes here. Subscribe by filling in your first name & email address below. You can always unsubscribe at any time.
 Visit our bookstore frequently to see what’s new. It’s called Comfort Zone books or you can also find it at www.chronicillnessbooks.com. New items are on the front page & you can also use the search box to find something specific quickly. We redid our bookstore in 2009 & now you can see what the most popular items are, see what other people have purchased, & even start a wish list for the future while you are just browsing. We appreciate your purchases here because this is what keeps our ministry going financially.
 Read our HopeKeepers Magazine. This is the backbone of outreach for our ministry. Originally this publication was a hard-copy, digest size magazine & we regret that we have had to go digital now due to printing costs. At the same time, we are glad it’s still here when so many other magazines, especially from large ministries, have ceased publication. Plus, since we are now digital, it is twice as big! You can read the first 18 pages for free or purchase access on a per issue basis for $5 each.
 Visit the Rest Ministries Sunroom. This is our social network & over 1300 people participate, many on a daily basis. This is the “hub” of the ministry so you will want to at least browse around. It’s also a great way to see what is on the hearts of people with illness. By reading about their concerns, praises & prayer requests, it will give you a good idea of what kinds of concerns people will come to your group with too.
 Sign up for the feed of our web site. You will then be updated whenever we have new articles, posts, information & more. You can do that at the top of this page. If you use an RSS feed reader just click on that link, but most people prefer to receive the announcements via email.
 And we can’t forget our daily devotionals. You can read these or sign up for them too at our site chronicillnessdevotionals.com . These are a wonderful tool to print & share with your group, include in a welcome package, use as a discussion kick off, etc.
