Blessings to you and your family this Christmas!

Christmas is such a joyous time for us but can be difficult for many who are alone and feel hopeless this holiday season. At Star of Hope,... Read More »

Show God’s Love this Christmas!

Christmas time is such a wonderful time of the year. Everyone’s spirits are joyful! Homes are decorated, and Christmas lights abound! We all love the aroma of Christmas cookies in the oven … and the sounds of a crackling fire in the fireplace. One of our family’s favorite traditions is listening to all the music of Christmas. I don’t remember very many of the presents I received over the years of... Read More »

iHeart Radio Tour!

One of the components of Star of Hope’s Vision 2020 is to help our clients improve job and life skills for successful independent living. However, before many of them can even think about looking for a job, they have to be able to feel comfortable in a work environment.

Happiest day of his life!

One of the things I enjoy the most in my day is visiting one of our facilities. I love the interaction with our Clients, and learning about their progress and how God is changing their lives.

The words “back to school” conjure up many memories for all of us. These days so many of those memories are captured on social media with the first day of school photos.

Trusting God in the Midst of Uncertainty

In the midst of the political uncertainty, violence and stress in the global financial markets we have witnessed recently, it is not uncommon to feel helpless and fearful of how it will impact us.

God's always with you, wherever you go...

I’m truly inspired by how God touches lives.  When I attend the graduation ceremonies at our Men’s Development Center (MDC), I and the staff pray with the men who will be commencing that day. They share their prayer requests with us … many of those related to overcoming their addictions and reconciling with their wives and families. After each ceremony I will write down their prayers and continue... Read More »
