Episode 10: Hope Upon Impact

In episode 10, Hope Upon Impact, my conversation with Julie Overlease, author of Hope Upon Impact, is just that, an easy conversation of two moms covering ground on loving our children, finding our tribe and the power of prayer.

You will find her memoir, Hope Upon Impact, as a guide to finding hope when we can only see darkness. With a deep faith and prayer life, Julie is clear that she was never alone on this journey. She points out the importance of finding gratitude each step of Evelyn’s recovery was encouraged by a longtime member of her tribe.

When challenges present themselves, we must find the strength to look for joy and hope. From where does this strength come, when YOU need it most? Sharing life experiences builds a tribe. Together, we can seek and find hope. We can shine a light on peace.

Julie describes how her tribe showed up to clothe, feed and pray for her family during the excruciating days of uncertainty while Evelyn’s life, as she knew it, was in the balance.  Julie’s tribe buoyed their family when they needed it most.

Friends, our nation is in a dark time. Our nation, our world — needs HOPE.  As our nation struggles with the reality of systemic racism, the reality of white privilege and the uncertainty of what moving forward to an equitable economic and educational platform resemble, I ask you to take the time and energy to find a person who doesn’t look like you and ask about their life experiences.

Sharing life experiences builds a tribe.

Together, we can seek and find hope. We can shine a light on peace.
