Love One Another
I've told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you.
- John 15:11-12 MSG
Whispered Hopes began in March 2009 as three women from a local church visiting one Chippewa Valley strip club—a handful of women reaching out in Christ’s name. What we discovered is friendship— sisters, mothers, daughters, wives, friends.
People like us. Our friends.
Today, we are passionate about all people discovering purpose in life, reaching for the best on our journeys.
As a person voluntarily serving with Whispered Hopes, I will conduct myself in a manner that reflects the grace and inclusiveness Jesus demonstrates and teaches. I will respect the privacy of the women and men I encounter in the clubs. I will embrace authenticity and model integrity in my thoughts, my words, my actions. And, when failure to do so inevitably comes, I will seek forgiveness, grace and restoration, making amends wherever possible.

"I would like to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability. And to help repair tears in her society, to make things a little better through the use of whatever ability she has.”
