31 Letters of Hope for the Suffering


Are you someone who is lonely, hurting, or in desperate need of a glimmer of hope?  

I don’t know what you are going through, but I do know what it is to feel broken  and hopeless. I have walked through dark valleys that I was certain would swallow me up, but I have learned that our days are never so dark that they are without hope, and our circumstances are never so broken that they cannot be redeemed.

I believe there is hope for you too, which is why I am writing you these letters to remind you of that.  As part of the Write 31 Days challenge, for 31 days I will write letters just for you to encourage you through your suffering.  Think of it like daily espresso shots of hope!  I plan on sharing parts of my story, what I’ve learned along the way, and priceless pieces of wisdom and encouragement that I’ve received from others who were there for me when I needed to keep my head above water.   My hope and prayer is that in reading these letters, you will find a little extra encouragement to give you the strength to keep yours above water too.

So will you join me?  I’d love to have you!  And if you find one of my letters especially meaningful or helpful, or you know of someone else who would find it encouraging, I would be honored if you would share it!  Please use the social media hashtag #lettersofhope to help spread the word.  You will find all the posts in this series linked here on this page so you can come back and read at any time.

May these letters be a light in the middle of your darkness.


“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts,” Romans 5:3-5
