This is the "shop" of Rest Ministries, Inc., a Christian organization founded in 1996 by Lisa Copen, for people who live with chronic illness or pain.
Rest Ministries, Inc. began in 1996 and became a 501(c) in ’97. It was founded by Lisa Copen.
Lisa was diagnosed a few years earlier with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 24 and life had changed dramatically. She searched for some time, but was unable to locate the kind of Christian support that she desired to help her along this unexpected detour of chronic illness.
Surely she couldn’t be the only one who lived with daily chronic pain, and believed in the Lord–& still wasn’t healed, right? Right!
Since then, Rest Ministries has reached hundreds of thousands of people–over 80,000 to the web site alone each month. And it continues to grow through the help of our volunteers. And we are honored to be an affiliate ministry with Joni & Friends International Disability Ministry, the ministry of Joni Eareckson Tada. [Read about how this came to be.]
We invite you to watch our 5-minute video to learn more about how Lisa began this ministry, what is does now, and how our HopeKeepers groups work.
For more information,including our Statement of Faith and Viewpoint on Healing visit our main site at Rest Ministries Chronic Illness Pain Support. Lisa donates all proceeds from her books or any other items back to Rest Ministries. The items you purchase in our store help keep us going!
Our other areas of ministry include: Rest Ministries Sunroom (social network to connect with others); HopeKeepers Groups; the site of our founder, LisaCopen.com ; Daily Devotionals (available on the Kindle too!) and our shop.
