Whispered Hopes ~ Established 2009

 

© 2018 by Whispered Hopes

Whispered Hopes began in 2009 as a ministry of Fellowship Church in Chippewa Falls WI USA. At the 2017 ICAPglobal.org conference Dotty & Jon accepted

the role of leadership, prayerfully releasing our founding volunteer, Renee, to answer God's call in a new region of the country.

Whispered Hopes continues to be an all volunteer organization, though donations are not tax deductible at this time.

Inspiration

 
As a woman, are you told in loud, demanding, silent, or subtle ways that somehow your life matters less, that you are less?

 

 

Let go of the lies, precious woman.
 
You are loved.
You are unique.
You are treasured.
You are resilient.
You are amazing.
 
Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
˗˗ John 12:3 NIV
 
 
People who inspire us.
Voices inviting us to change.

Leaders of Change

 

Domestic violence and sexual abuse are often called "women's issues." But in this bold, blunt talk, Jackson Katz points out that these are intrinsically men's issues – and shows how these violent behaviors are tied to definitions of manhood. A clarion call for us all – women and men – to call out unacceptable behavior and be leaders of change.

Treasures


I thought that my life and existence was hopeless and that the relationship was the only salvageable thing left. In my search for one good and pure thing, I clung onto my boyfriend with all of my strength and sacrificed my dignity to keep him in my life. All of my adoration, love and worship were focused on a person who was too selfish to ever really love me.

In retrospect, I can see that God’s heart was deeply pained by my brokenness. He wanted nothing more than to extend his hand to me and show me my beauty and worth—to help me see the value I never saw in myself.

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

 

Not Asking for It
