In these real life stories of everyday men and women, you’ll rediscover the power of faith and hope.

There’s no pretending here. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom to find hope. Sometimes you have to go to the darkest places to experience the power of faith. The people in these stories have been to these difficult places, and they have all been surprised by hope, revived by faith and touched by God’s love.

What happens when we lose hope, when our faith is shaken?

When children are taken from us by illness. When the bright future we planned for goes dark. When we lose our friends, our livelihood and our joy, it can be easy to give in to pessimism and doubt.

For more than 60 years it has been our mission at Guideposts to bring you real life stories of faith, hope and love told by real people in their own words. Because this mission is the life’s work of everyone at Guideposts, we want to share with you 7 stories that moved us. Stories that inspired our readers to respond with greater faith and hope in their own lives. Stories that have revealed the greater plan God has for each and every one of us when we have the faith and courage to listen deeply.

True stories of faith, hope and love that feel ripped right out of the headlines.

Years ago, Dale Evans wrote a song with the lyrics:

“Have Faith, Hope and Charity,
That’s the way to live successfully.
How do I know? The Bible tells me so”

But sometimes Biblical stories can seem very far away from the reality we live every day.  In the free eBook The Power of Hope: 7 Inspirational Stories of People Re-discovering Faith, Hope and Love, you’ll find that faith, hope and love are never far away when you have the courage to open your heart. In these stories, you’ll meet real people struggling with issues you hear about on the news every day. And you’ll read in their own words how they were surprised by hope. Revived by faith. Renewed by the power of God’s love.

  • You’ll meet a mother who discovered that, beyond all odds, three of her children were born with an illness that would take them from her before they turned 20. And you’ll discover what gave her the strength not only to go on, but to live every day with greater love and gratitude.

  • You’ll feel the fear of a young soldier, whose courage on the battlefield in Iraq was strong, but when he lost his eyesight had to learn to rely on a deeper reserve of strength, and who found new hope in the discovery of his life’s true calling.

  • You’ll experience the pain of a mother who had lost hope and hardened her heart in the face of her son’s intractable addiction—and how faith brought healing to her son and love to her family again.

  • You’ll face the darkness of depression—the deep feeling of worthlessness and loneliness that feels like abandonment by God—only to discover the truth of God’s love and healing power with faith and hope.

These brave people are willing to open their hearts and share their pain in these true stories because of the healing transformation that faith, hope and love brought to their lives. These stories will open your heart and help to bring hope, faith and healing love into your own life.
