Thanks for stopping by! I’m Hope, a word nerd, tea lover, and romantic soul who makes her home in upstate New York.
Oh, and at 29, I’m living a life I definitely didn’t expect!
The plan was simple: go to college, fall in love with a godly man, get married, and live purposefully ever after.
But God’s plan was different. At 29, I’m as single as ever. Though I know God’s plans are good, I wrestle daily with the tension between my desire for marriage and the singleness He has given me.
But through the ups and downs of this journey following Jesus in the unexpected, I always come back to the conviction that whatever my circumstances, there is hope.
Hope is the conclusion, but this doesn’t always comfort in the sharpness of the pain I experience. But knowing that hope is the conclusion, I feel the freedom to wrestle through the difficulties and doubts that I face as I walk with Jesus.
Maybe you’re in a similar place. If you are, I invite you to join me in this journey of writing through the questions to take hold of the truth.
“And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5
