Hunting Hope: Dig Through the Darkness to Find the Light by Nika Maples

Goodreads | Amazon
Hope is not an accident. Sometimes it has to be hunted, and hunting it takes courage.

Hope hunters know how to excavate hope from hardship. There is dirt underneath their fingernails and sweat on their shirts. They rake through the rubble of an unwanted situation, digging into difficult circumstances because they have come to expect that adversity will produce good. They believe that light always triumphs over darkness. They have learned to walk through winter with their eyes on spring.

Nika Maples became a hope hunter after suffering a massive brainstem stroke that left her quadriplegic in her twenties. Doctors warned that she had as little as 48 hours to live, and-if she lived at all-she would never walk or talk again. There was no hope on the horizon. So Nika started to hunt for it. Today, she not only walks, but she speaks to audiences everywhere about the power of hunting hope when a situation appears hopeless. She says hope remains camouflaged in the daily mundane. If we are not looking for it, we will miss it, though it is right before our eyes.

Whether you or someone you know is going through a situation that feels hopeless, you will find encouragement in Hunting Hope. Whether you are experiencing a medical trauma, a financial hardship, or a relational crisis, you will find empowerment in Hunting Hope. As you read, you will cling to 20 truths about God's character and practice 5 daily disciplines that will develop your own character in crisis. 

You will become a hope hunter.

Maybe it doesn't matter what causes suffering in our lives as much as it matters what suffering causes in our lives. Maybe we were all meant to be hope hunters.

Nika Maples uses the experience of her personal struggles to write a beautiful book packed with life-giving hope. Page after page, Hunting Hope: Dig Through the Darkness to Find the Light offers wonderful encouragement and insight for living in difficult seasons and clinging to God’s truth. Any reader will benefit from a reading of Hunting Hope - I know I did. I appreciated all that Maples shares in her book and can easily recommend it. It’s certainly a worthwhile read.

Thanks to Worthy’s First Look, I received a copy of Hunting Hope and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
