Hope Defined by Leslie Stickel

When a sudden tragedy changes everything, how do we learn to live without letting it control us? Hope Defined are God breathed words that reached me during one of the darkest hours of my life. I knew I was faced with a decision, allow tragedy to define me or to give it all over to God. My goal is to show how you, too, can move beyond the circumstances of loss to focus on the hope for goodness that God will bring into your life.


Coping With Loss Of a Loved One

Grief is a heavy burden to bear. It is universal and yet so personal. I lost my mom to suicide. As you will read, I came through the loss with the words Hope Defined in my mind, filled with grace, vulnerability, and the hope everlasting that comes from God. Contact me to order a copy of this honest, heartbreaking, but ultimately triumphant story of thriving, not just surviving.
