The Hope House is now open and I let out a great proud sigh this morning after reading Nora's blog. For the women, who voiced what they wanted. For Nora, who works with courage and conviction every day in a difficult environment. For DHF, who is working on consistently creating opportunities for people to invent their own vision through their own intelligence and resourcefulness.

Every step of the work seems like a milestone. This is true for all of us. I know the cocoon of fear and doubt. We all know fear. I recall a mentor in San Diego calling it F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real). Our world grows smaller and smaller with every fear. And then, fear gives rise to pain that pushes…until the vision pulls.

And so I ask you to consider:
What step would you take today if you were brave?

How we spend our days is how we spend our lives!
Substance responds to your faith in it.

Next up on our being brave list:
Play for Hope with the Baylor Women’s Soccer ladies who are “playing” big, feel free to send it forward to youth soccer players you know in Texas
Healing Home initiative to construct new kitchens and long-term health behaviors with the strength of 30 families in poverty who want to create healthy homes for their children.
DHF Summer Supper Circles—ambassadors like you hosting grassroots dinners/events in their homes all over this country with the goal of owning a piece of a DHF initiative.

To illumination, MM
