I love to collect quotations that are life-affirming and hope-giving. I value the words of several Christian authors: Beth Moore, Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen, Max Lucado, and David Jeremiah are just a few.
I feel the need to share some hope and affirmations with you because I have been given hope anew in recent days. I write these kinds of quotes in my journal or on bits of paper. I find them on the internet, in posts from the blogs I follow, and from scripture. I post them around my house on index cards or I include them in correspondence to friends and family. I hope something I share today will be just what you need to hear today.
