April 2019 “HOPE Against the ODDs”


On April 1, 2019, And He Restoreth My Soul Project will begin posting articles written for “Hope Against the ODDs and how to HOLD ON.” Every email you receive is to educate our minds, elevate our thinking, and encourage our hearts to know HOPE is possible NO-MATTER WHAT. HOPE is born out of the ashes of yesterday.

All around the world, April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month.  And He Restoreth My Soul Project is not an agency but a provider of helpful information. Yet when working on the same timeline and subject matter you never know who will say “YES.”

I am extremely thankful for Linkedin because it provides an excellent opportunity for professionals to network on all types of ventures and all types of causes.  Thus; Linkedin is the venue through which a project like April 2019 “Hope Against the ODDs” comes to life and how I am extremely blessed for people who said “YES.”

The writers are from different cities, states, and countries yet, when you read their words harmony rings loud and clear thus; demonstrating that we are fighting the same brutal, and vicious battle against sexual violence.

Each writer met his/her overall objective as they were to give HOPE throughout their articles, poems, or their own stories. Needless to say, and I think you will agree, they accomplished the objective and more.

2019 Hope ProjectAlso, I requested prayers from trusted pastors and friends. Without fail, the prayers are inspiring and interceding prayers filled with HOPE, compassion, and a strong desire for healing the woundedness of the survivor’s spirit.

I admit I am biased, but you don’t want to miss any of the April 2019 “HOPE Against the ODDs” Project because all the people involved in this project are betting on the HOPE that lies in each survivor!
