Over the years, people say, “I could never do what you do.” Sometimes they are saying, “I could never do it because I don’t want to.” Other times they are saying, “Your calling looks so much more glamourous than mine.” Please,...
As you may be able to tell by my disappearance from the blog recently, I’m working on my house! This week’s project has been to clear out my fabric/craft room. Considering that I am a fabriholic/hoarder, this major job that I have been putting off for...
For those of you who have very young children…or grandchildren, I want to introduce a new blog to you. I’ve linked to this blogger before. She was also a speaker at the Relevant Conference (for Christian women bloggers). Her new blog is designed for...
Today’s post will be a link to the post of one of my new Five Minute Friday/Relevant friends. Her name is Jacque. Now that I’ve met her in person, I’ve found her to be as delightful and sparkly as I did when I met online. It doesn’t hurt...
Welcome to a Place of Hope

I’m Martha. I’m so glad you came to visit. This is a place for women who are scared, overwhelmed, brokenhearted and losing hope. One thing we can find together is hope. The Biblical kind that is confident expectation in the person and promises of GOD!
In 2015, my husband had a stroke which changed our lives on many levels. I waited the required year after to see what the final outcome of his recovery would be, and when the time was up, I experienced a very dark time despite the fact that he had improved considerably.
I began seeking out how to find hope for a person who is scared, overwhelmed and brokenhearted. Because I ran the gamut of all those feelings. Often, I still do.
We all need the encouragement of GOD’s Word to remind us of who GOD is, what His promises are and how certain our hope is in Him! It is not because of how strong our faith is but because of who the One is in whom we place it!
But let me back up a bit and tell you a little about myself. I am a wife of just over 50 years to a now retired pastor, a mom of 3 daughters who are grown and married, with 7 grands. I’m also an RN.
We have lived in a variety of places in our years of ministry including Jamaica, FL, TX, IL and now AL near one of our daughters.
Now that COVID has arrived, our neat, controlled worlds have all been turned upside-down. It makes no difference what our age or stage in life, everything has changed. The things we once based our hope on have all shifted.
Come join us as we find hope together in Christ! We’re all learning new ways to trust Him as we discover places we once thought we firm are now shifting out from under us.
