A Voice of Hope on The 700 Club

Season One Overview

My heart for this series is to give people hope in a real and relevant way by highlighting scripture and making it practical to the everyday Christian. As believers in Christ it seems as though we are drowning in the same issues as the secular world in regard to family, relationships, self-esteem and our overall lives. The key is to not only know that God has died on the cross for us to overcome these problems BUT to know HOW to overcome our challenges by way of the Word of God and a renewed relationship with Jesus Christ.
