I’m starting a series about hope, what is it? Why do we need it? How can it be used to spur us into action? Most importantly- how does it save us when we feel like it is lost? I also want to explore how hope leads to being inspired and the want to pass it on, much like I’m doing with this series. I will start the conversation and I have asked friends to contribute if they choose, this invitation also goes out to you- the you whose eyes have landed on this page.

Hope as a verb: to want something to happen or be true and think that it could happen or be true
Hope as a noun: the feeling of wanting something to happen and thinking that it could happen; a feeling that something good will happen or be true; the chance that something good will happen; someone or something that may be able to provide help; someone or something that gives you a reason for hoping
