Thank you

It has been over a month since I’ve shared any thoughts, feelings and/or emotions. But tonight as I stare at this blank white box and try to figure out where to begin – I am flooded with emotions. Emotions of gratefulness, happiness and joy. So here goes nothing… Dear Hope City Family, First off, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Words can’t even begin to say how thankful I am for each and every one of you – no ...

An Open Letter to Someone who Inspires Me

I’ve heard it time and time again, “God puts people in your life for a reason”. It’s a common theme, people say it all the time.. but this is something I truly believe when it comes to you and I think you need to know how big of an inspiration you really are to me. It hasn’t been until recently that our friendship truly began, but even before, you still inspired me. Throughout your trial and tribulations, you ...

“I’m Sorry”

(Disclaimer: If any of this sounds rude, I apologize. I am just speaking in my own personal experience and how I feel on the subject. If you don’t like it, don’t read it.)

Grief

It’s no secret that times have been hard, not just for me but also my family in the past few years. In six years, we have said goodbye to ones dearest to us and they were welcomed by open arms into the arms of Jesus. Grieving is a funny thing, people will tell you how you SHOULD grieve and point out some textbook way of how it “should” be done. There is no way grief should be done. Now, don’t get me wrong.. there are ...

I am an Overcomer.

“You might be down for a moment, feeling like it’s hopeless..That’s when He reminds you that you’re an Overcomer.” All day I’ve been thinking about how much I just wanted to write and that I haven’t wrote and shared my thoughts recently with anyone. All day I thought about this, but I had no idea what I wanted to share or where I wanted to begin (I still kind of don’t, so I’m really ...

“Strength” Merriam-Webster states that strength is defined as: the quality or state of being physically strong. the ability to resist being moved or broken by a force. the quality that allows someone to deal with problems in a determined and effective way. My friends define it as: Resilience. Never giving up and still believing in myself even though I may feel alone and that the world isn’t on my side. To be strong and ...
