Hope is needed in our daily lives now more than ever. Wars and the pandemic, along with the ongoing climate crisis, are affecting the lives of many people all over the world. In this difficult time, hope is the unifying force to carry us through the despair. To inspire others to find hope in their lives, Sr Stan reached out to a number of individuals to discover where they find hope.

As with her previous best seller Finding Peace (2021), Sr Stan posed the question “Where and how do you find hope in your daily life?”. Despite being a very personal question, public figures and private citizens responded in droves and the result is an authentic and beautiful book sure to inspire readers.
