Overcoming Hopelessness

December 4th, 2016|

I think one of the most destructive emotions a caregiver can have is hopelessness. If there is no hope, why do we do what we do? And hopelessness is contagious. When we’re defeated and full of despair, our words and actions can be discouraging to everyone around us.

Advent is supposed to be a time of preparing our hearts for the greatest source of hope – a Savior who came to show us The Way to live in peace, love, joy and abundance.  Yet I find as the year winds down, I’m so tempted to succumb to hopelessness.
