We have chosen to be teachers of hope. “My little way is the way of trust and absolute surrender.” With childlike faith, all things are possible. – St. Thérèse
Hope’s mission is to Educate and Inform the public about the family disease of Addiction, Codependency and offer insight on the spiritual path of Recovery.
There are very few people who have not somehow been touched by the disease of addiction in a family member or friend. It is a disease that impacts ALL of society: families, jobs, churches, schools, the healthcare system, the legal system. Yet addiction is the most fatal and misunderstood disease known!
Hope is not only educated about the disease, but has lived the disease, so she is able to share her experience, strength and hope to help others.
Hope is regularly called upon to speak about alcoholism, codependency and recovery . She has spoken before audiences at treatment facilities, mental health organizations, schools, churches and conference centers. Hope frequently facilitates spiritual retreats for individuals in recovery.
