A Story of Hope


My family and I attend a church here in Reno called Life Church. It's an amazing church full of people sold out for Jesus. And I love that!

Our pastors have been teaching a series on hope, using the recently release book The Hope Quotient by Ray Johnston. Shortly before the series began, my pastor and I had spoken to one another about bringing my story to our church. And after a while, he asked if I'd be willing to film a short video to be used during this series to illustrate the truth that hope can be found on the other side of tragedy. To show that God does, in fact, work all things for good for those who know and love Him. I'm sharing that video here with you today, and I pray God uses it as He intends to bring greater perspective and hope and light to those who need it.
