I really need a favor from you guys. 

I launched a new project on my helpline blog called “Hopeful Heroes” and basically it’s a project where you talk about you hero and why they’re your hero. For me, I think that in order to have hope you need to have a hero, whether it’s a celebrity or a family member or a long time friend. 

I’ve been promoting it on this blog and messaging a few TSwift blogs and friends here on tumblr to get the word out about this project and the blog itself. Yesterday we hit 700 followers and this is a blog and a project that I’m really proud of. We haven’t had any body submit anything and it’s been kinda disappointing. I really believe in this project and believe that it could go somewhere and I would love for you to be involved. 

Just head on over to http://www.healinghope.tumblr.com/submit and share a picture, tell us about your hero, write a little blurb about your hero. I believe that in life you need other people and some of these people are your strength and that’s what I want to know and share with the world. 

Please if you could reblog this as well it would be so helpful to me. 

Ladies if you want to be a wife give the man an opportunity to step up and make way to be your husband. If he loves you he will wait. If all he wants is sex then he didnt get the memo of how priceless and amazing you are. Too bad, his loss. God WILL send you the one, be patient ;) Visit http://www.healinghopenow.com for more Godly insight & encouragement #healinghope #faith #patience #celibate #waitingontheone

I LOVE this saying. I have it hanging up in my dorm room, right above my light switch- so that every day in the morning when I head to class I see it as I turn the light off, reminding myself that Today, is going to be a good day. No matter what.” -Gabs

Hopeful Heroes: A HealingHope project

he·ronoun: 1. a person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his or her brave deeds and noble qualities.

Heroes are among us. They might not wear capes or fly, but they still have a great impact on our communities. Heroes are the people in our communities that we look to for encouragement and support. They are incredibly strong and courageous: a beacon of guiding light and inspiration for others.

Do you have a hero? Has someone inspired you by their strength or their bravery? HealingHope is introducing a new project: Hopeful Heroes. We invite you to share your stories about your heroes and how they have inspired you.

In a submission, tell us who your hero is and what they mean to you. This might include 1) why they’re your hero, 2) what makes them inspiring, and 3) how have they inspired you. This may just be a few short sentences or it might be a full story — the amount that you share is up to you.

By sharing your stories of hope and inspiration, you can be a hero and reach out to others. We hope that you share your story with us.

Stay strong, always.
