HOPE NEVER ENDING
Prayers go up. You talk to God. You hope and pray.
You watch and listen and say. This may really be the day.
May your unfailing
love be with us,
Lord, even as we put
our hope in you.
I'm a student, daughter, friend and follower of Jesus, my hope.
At Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, California I am an English major in order to become a screenwriter. I have autism but that is not what defines me. It often gets in my way temporarily, but only temporarily. I have been on a quest for healing seems like my whole life. It's slow but steady. I communicate by typing and now I'm learning to find my voice and talk. I also love being an advocate for others like me. Here In this web page you will find my journey, in my writings and books and videos. I want to share them with you to bring you hope that anything is possible.
When we have mountains to climb it can seem like they are too high, but if we start walking one step at a time, we find small victories along the way. Our hope grows and believing in a God who loves to carry us through to the end will get us to the top. I am so grateful for God's love and I know I will reach the top of my next mountain and will talk one day soon.
Everyone is God's child and hope for the future is alive inside of them. This web page is dedicated to hope. To the dreams we carry inside of us that with God's help will one day come true.
