Spark of Hope #47 – I delight in watching readers’ expressions as they meet our whimsical stick-characters. Those characters bring hope into our presentations, and onto posters, cards, and t-shirts. They’re even on drums! We constantly receive requests for more “starring roles.” Derek is the creator of those characters, and everything visually brilliant about Hope Matters. From the age of two when I handed him the first pocket sketchbook, it was clear that he possessed a God-given gift. Today, we’re celebrating Derek’s 28th birthday. I have a double-sided blessing, an amazing artist who is my son. Celebrate your children’s abilities—their gifts make Huge Outcomes Possible Everyday!
Happy Birthday Derek — you magnify hope in every heart!

Hope is like a spark; if the conditions are right, it can spread like wildfire. Hope feeds the soul, ignites passion, and inspires others. A world without it is like a world without possibility. Tucked inside each of us is a child-like spark that says: never forget to dream, play and imagine. HOPE is the extraordinary spark that says Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday!
