Thank You

I would like to take a moment and thank each one of you for an excellent year. It’s been a blessing to write what I feel the Lord has guided me to share this past year with you. I’ve appreciated all of your encouragement and prayers. It’s been exciting to launch Sustaining Hope and Inspire Hope Podcast!

I want to thank each of you who purchased our “tools.” It’s a great encouragement to me as I have prayed and trusted that the Lord will use each one for His glory. It’s wonderful to hear how the book has encouraged many of you. I’ve had great feedback from the verse packs and journals as well. Feedback is very appreciated because it helps me to know if I’m on the right track of creating relevant and beneficial resources for you.

Do you have something you’d like to see us create? Let us know!

Thank you to each guest who took the time to prayerfully write a blog post for our community. I don’t instruct any guest what to write about. I like to leave it open for them to seek the Lord’s direction and share accordingly. I’ve been greatly encouraged by each article, and I trust you have too.

Has the Lord put a word of encouragement on your heart to share with our community? Send us your post to [email protected]!

I have enjoyed starting Inspire Hope Podcast with Sammy this year as well. Thank you to each of you who have courageously shared a piece of your story with us. We’ve had people respond affirming the impact these episodes have had. We look forward to hearing from many more of you next year!

Would you be courageous and share your story with us? If so, email us at [email protected]!

Thank you to the Why Me Project, Chris Ayotte from WMUZ Detroit’s Christian Radio Station, Lara and the crew at 100 Huntley Street, and New Brunswick Bible Institute for the opportunities you extended to me. I was honoured to share the Lord’s work in my life and this ministry with each of you. I was especially humbled and grateful for the opportunity to exhort the women at the Ladies of Grace Conference (Session 1, 2, 3). Our time together brought great joy to me!

It was a full, exciting year of growth for this ministry! The Lord has been so good and faithful.

I am about to sign off beginning tomorrow, December 23rd, 2022 for Christmas break. I will be returning January 9, 2023. I’m looking forward to unplugging and getting caught up on rest and family time. I’m also hoping to get some prep work done behind the scenes in order to have a strong start to 2023.

We’ve got the Bible study scheduled to launch this coming fall, so there’s lot of work to get done ahead of time. I’m so excited to get this into your hands and hearts! If you’re a women’s ministry leader looking for Bible studies to do with your ladies next year and/or speakers for an event, please contact me for more information about this!

We’ve also got guest writers, podcast episodes, and other tools in the works too, so take the time over the holiday to rest and get caught up on our posts and podcast, and get ready for a another great year ahead!

I leave you all with a challenge to finish this year strongly with the Lord and begin the next one that way as well, because this life is ultimately all about going deeper with Jesus.

24 “May the Lord bless you and protect you;
25 may the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
26 may the Lord look with favor on you
and give you peace.”’ – Numbers 6:24-26

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

There’s always hope,
