In response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

Heart of Hope - A Sanctuary for Women has been deemed an essential business and will remain open. We continue to meet our mission every day as we seek informed and wise updates from the CDC and local and state health departments. We are adjusting guidelines and protocols within our operations daily. These certainly are uncertain days, however, we serve a God who is sovereign and is not surprised ...

As the days pass and I watch all that is going on in the world today, I find myself struggling to live in this world yet not of it.  Never have I felt so much like I don’t belong here and the straw that broke me and caused me to weep with such sorrow were the days some states announced the decision to allow the murder of not just the pre-born but the born, ...

“I prayed to God and I got what I asked for!”  These precious and excited words skipped joyfully out of Miss J’s mouth as she shared with all of us her BIG news!

I know you want to know the BIG news, and well, I will tell you soon enough.  But, you know, there is always a back story with me!

I remember the day Miss J visited Heart of Hope for the first ...

In the context of being a message bearer of the Cross, our lives reveal to others the power of the Resurrection.  In every circumstance of life, both good and bad, this question is an important one to ask, “Is my life a witness to the love, grace and power of Jesus Christ?”

At Heart of Hope, the way we live each day in front of our residents is a living witness to the new creations ...

Are you reading this letter right now and have a child, grandchild, or loved one who has lost his/her way?

Because God has shown the depth of His love through the ministry of Heart of Hope, I can assure you He is on the scene with those who came to your mind a moment ago!

The Webster’s Dictionary of 1828 defines trust this way:

TRUST, noun. Is confidence; a reliance or resting of the mind on the integrity, veracity, justice, friendship or other sound principle of another person.

What faces appear in your mind’s eye when you think trustworthy? 

Can you imagine what it is like for a 14-year-old whose own parents have been anything but trustworthy?  The very family who is supposed to be kind, loving, caring, ...

This week was difficult for us at Heart of Hope. 

Each of us at Heart of Hope believes we have been given an assignment from the Lord to be His hands and feet to the young women we care for during this challenge of teen pregnancy.  The home experience we create for them is so contrary to the life style to which they are accustomed.

Our newest resident, a 14-year-old, has never known a home ...

I will never get over the goodness of our God!  If you are always looking for it, neither will you!

This month as we prepared for our banquet guests to fill our event room, we prayed that each person would feel God’s heartbeat for the young women we serve. Tours of the home allowed our guests to experience for themselves what our families experience when they visit for the first time:  beauty, peace, provision, ...

Happy New Year from all of us at Heart of Hope, including the precious baby who was born to Miss E on January third. We are over the moon in love with this gift from God and thankful that his birth reminds us of God’s faithfulness. As we begin this year, we confess our need for God…fresh…new…again. We know that He makes all things new, in our hearts, in our minds, ...

The Word of God is ALIVE! Recently, I read the below scripture and saw something for the very first time.  I would like to share it with you.

Luke 1:26-30 says, “Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.  And coming ...
