First off, I want to thank you for coming to my blog. My name is April Audett and I am the owner and writer for Hope Anchored. I am a mom of one beautiful little girl, Brianna, and I am married to a true man of God who challenges me and makes me a stronger person.
I come from a background that sort of looks like Job’s life. If you don’t know who Job is, he is a man from the Bible who faced many challenges and some hard times; yet, he never faltered in his faith and hope. The challenges I have faced, and are still facing in life, have grown me into the strong woman I am today. Throughout my blog, I will be writing about those challenges.
I want this place to be a place of encouragement and a place to learn. As a mom, a wife and a disciple of Christ, my challenges and life lessons should serve as an encouragement in your life. It should stand to show you that, no matter what you face in life, you can make it to the end as a stronger, more resilient individual.
I encourage you to comment on the blog posts every week and tell me what your thoughts are. If you have prayer requests, you can post them on each post or email me. We are in this life together.
So, why “Hope Anchored”? Well, I was listening to a sermon by Pastor Steven Furtick, pastor of Elevations Church, that talked about how hope is our anchor for our faith. Most people say that their “hope floats through the rough times” but, in fact, as we go through the trials of life, hope is the one thing that keeps our faith solid. We hope for a better future and a way out of the dark times and that hope gives us the sturdy anchor for our faith.
I don’t want you to think that I am perfect. I am far from. However, through my mistakes and my trials I grow. This blog will serve as my testimony to my faith that is anchored in hope.
I can’t wait to go on this journey with you all.
