Hope :: What Breaks Your Heart?

I’d first like to start with an apology for my lack of blog posts last week. I have no excuse, except that time just seemed to get away from me! Today, I wanted to focus on what I shared with my Tikvah video last week. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, in additionContinue reading “Hope :: What Breaks Your Heart?”

Hope :: Selfishness vs. Self-Respect

The following words are not words that I came up with. I read them and felt the need to share them here with you. selfishness is putting the wants of yourself over the needs of others self-respect is putting the needs of yourself over the wants of others one is disregarding others, one is takingContinue reading “Hope :: Selfishness vs. Self-Respect”

Hope :: Past the Fear

I don’t know about you, but I’m afraid. A lot. Fear can actually be a good thing. In small doses and if it keeps you from doing something stupid. Fear can also keep you trapped and keep you from doing and being MORE. I don’t know what your “more” is, but I know we allContinue reading “Hope :: Past the Fear”

Hope :: My Request

Hello, beautiful readers! In addition to these blog posts, my Tikvah videos, and the fiction books I’ve mentioned that I’m trying to get published traditionally, I’ve been working on a non-fiction book! The book is titled, “So You’re a Christian. Now What?” It’s the first of four books that aid new believers in their walkContinue reading “Hope :: My Request”

Hope :: My Symbol

I only just realized I’ve never really talked about the symbol that represents all of my writing and videos. It’s attached to my emails and at the end of every blog post. But I’ve never written here about it. If you look closely, there is a semi-colon. As many of you will know, the semi-colonContinue reading “Hope :: My Symbol”

Hope :: Stay the Course

No matter in what stage of life you find yourself entrenched, I’m willing to bet you’re fighting battles in your life. Maybe it’s that it seems everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. Maybe it’s that you don’t have anyone supporting you. I could sit here all day naming off things that could beContinue reading “Hope :: Stay the Course”

Hope :: There’s Always Something

I struggle with depression. Sometimes it gets really bad. To the point where someone asks what’s good in my life and I can’t think of a single thing. The past few weeks have been extremely rough. Each day was progressively worse. I love the team I work with, but every single night I was dreadingContinue reading “Hope :: There’s Always Something”

Hope :: Why I Believe

Some people believe in God because of some miracle He’s worked in their lives. Some believe because of total healing He’s performed. I believe because He’s always been here. I always had a hard time making friends. I had two best friends in elementary school. By the time I got into high school (7th grade)Continue reading “Hope :: Why I Believe”

Hope :: I Don’t Fit In

I’ve never been part of the ‘in’ crowd. I was never ‘normal’, or at least what everyone in my schools considered normal. I’m sure I’m not the only one. You don’t have to fit in. I know being in middle and high school is extremely difficult, especially when you don’t fit into the ‘normal’ crowd.Continue reading “Hope :: I Don’t Fit In”

Hope :: Forgiving Yourself, Part 2

Some of you who read last week’s post may be feeling a little off; as if what I said doesn’t apply to you because you were the one who did wrong and not the victim. I promised you that I would have words for you too, and here they are. Warning you now, it’s aContinue reading “Hope :: Forgiving Yourself, Part 2”
