Hope in Heartache

Oct 5, 2012 | Faith

Nothing inspires like a good story.

As a former History teacher, I read history with individuals in mind.  Personal stories inside the landmark stories.  I have been awestruck, strengthened, and encouraged by individual stories throughout time.  People like you and me living through heart wrenching experiences.  From their stories, I gain strength.

The beauty of blogging is the ability to share our stories with others.  Not everyone is a blogger, but their life story is inspiring.

This weekend, I have the privilege to share a powerful, inspiring story being lived each day by a family devastated by tragedy of more than one kind.  I will post it both in its entirety but also in three parts for those of you who like to read in shorts pieces of time.  I will post the three parts tomorrow morning, tomorrow late afternoon, and Sunday morning.

Please, read this powerful story and pass it on to others. It’s a mother’s story who experienced immense heartache not only once, twice, but three times.

Have you ever needed hope in the midst of heartache?

If so, please visit here tomorrow with a cup of coffee in hand, ready to receive hope, encouragement, and strength.

Also, if you need a good book to read as the weather gets colder, please read the review of Until We All Come Home or sign up for my free giveaway A Place to Belong.  The giveaway is open through Sunday.

Blessings to you this Friday, and I’ll see you tomorrow as we share a powerful story of Hope.  His Story.

Love to you in Him,

    How beautiful of you to share someone else’s story. Looking forward to it. If there were no hope in our heartache, where would we be? I’d be a complete mess, I know that.

    Oh I can’t wait…I told my husband that my wind got knocked out this week and I was feeling hopeless..of course that is a lie from the pit…He seems to always hit the hardest before the victory
