Hope is such an emotive word.
Hope expresses a desire for some good to take place in your life. There is a slight expectation of obtaining that desire. That feeling of possibility stirs us to action.
Hope is a mature attitude. It is not a childish dream for the unattainable. True Hope is rooted in something of substance, even if it is not apparent at the moment. That attitude drives us to action.
But what happens when it seems all Hope is lost?
Despair takes over.
Lost relationships. Lost body image. Lost social standing. You become destitute. You wander internally. You begin to lose your way in life. The perplexity alters your thinking.
You despair even in life.
Those of you that have been there know exactly what I mean. You can tell I have been there.
In 2012, I was at the end of my Hope. Something tragic was inevitable. By the grace of God, I survived the despair. I found Hope!
It has taken 6 years for me to find enough courage to publish my story. Honestly, it does not go into gory details; but it does detail enough so that you know I was in despair.
My life did fall apart.
Thankfully, it was rebuilt.
My desire is to encourage those who, like me, are searching for Hope. Of course you should seek professional care! Yet doctors can only prescribe medications, therapists can only guide you through your healing process. Only YOU can help yourself.
Professional care is a must and yet that takes up only 3-5 hours of your week. What do you do with the leftover 162 hours?
That is where I pray my story will help you.
It is now available in paperback. I’ll let you know when the electronic copy is available.
- It is not a long read because when you are in despair, it is hard to concentrate for long periods of time.
- It is written in simple language because the brain can only process so much during despair.
- It is not expensive because this is about me helping others, not making a living from their grief.

I truly hope it is a help.
