  1. Thank you Heather! I have loved Hebrews 10:23 since I “discovered” it almost 20 years ago, but have sort of forgotten it’s about holding on to HOPE. Not holding on to faith or effort or something else spiritual, but HOPE.

  2. Lord, I pray you give me courage to speak hope-filled words to the hopeless; your words, not mine.

    Heather, Your blog screamed Hope to me all year long- Thank you. I am still praying for you, and yours.

    Happy Holiday’s.

  3. Your inspiring post reminded me of this quotation by Albert Einstein:

    “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

    I have been anxious about some things lately. Your post inspires me to memorize that Bible verse and use it as my mantra whenever I start to fret. Thank you!

  4. Awesome post. God never fails to fulfill His promises. Why do we not live as if we believe that? I want to hold onto that hope with unwavering faith. I can\’t even begin to imagine what life would look like, but I\’d sure like to find out. Thanks for sharing this, Heather.

  5. Heather, you are one of the most courageous women I know because you face the hard things with truth and authenticity. Thanks for always taking us back to hope!

  6. Heather, your words have extra oomph because you are living your words — and your challenge brings to a place of faith — where it really counts. It’s easier to not hope, but you’re pointing us forward! Thank you!
