WHAT IS HOPE? HOW TO MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU.

St. Paul said, “Hope is one of the three most important words…” He used an anchor as a metaphor for hope.

St. Paul said, “Hope is one of the three most important words…” He used an anchor as a metaphor for hope. If love is a kite flying in the skies, faith the rope tied to the kite; what is hope? Hope is the anchor! Hope keeps love and faith grounded so they do not float away. 

Hope lost destroys life; hope gained is medicine to the soul. Hope gives cancer victims a 15%-20% better chance of survival. Abundant hope empowers an inferior sports team to defeat a superior opponent. 

Crowell’s Law of Hopeful Hope


Hope is alive when it is active, not dormant. Hope must be excited. Anytime someone seeks “Hopeful Hope” there is one and only one requirement. The recipient of hope must desire to be helped.

After many years of counseling, my sessions always begin with one question. “Do you want me to tell you the truth, or do you want me to tell you a lie?”

Why is this a crucial question? It forces one to face the truth. The truth can be so painful, willingness to hear it is overridden by fear, a deaf ear, or a general unwillingness to hear helpful counsel

Words of Hope is written to speak the truth. Hope is the message. There is no hope in telling people a lie in hopes of making them feel better. In over 240 visits to oncology not once has the doctored lied to be about his diagnosis of my condition.

Words of Hope are written to those seeking tools to face the most difficult life challenges.

Read the Crowell Definition of Hope and personalize it to your life. Please read it aloud.

HOPE is:
 Help me, Help You, Help others.

The fact is, you can only help others who help you help them.

My hero, Mike who reads Words of Hope daily and pre-purchased 200 WOH books sent me this email. Mike’s email encompasses the sole purpose of Words of Hope.

“Fred, I hope this email finds you well and your procedures going well. I just thought I’d share a blessing with you. My lead account manager was just diagnosed with breast cancer on Tuesday. You know the mental grind she is facing right now as well as anyone. She never talks about faith but yesterday I sent her your Words of Hope on Fear. She has it taped to her computer monitor now. I pray that through this process she becomes one with the Lord.”
