Everyone Can Feel Hope and Inspiration in 2020

By guest contributors: Jordan Tanner & Justin Anderson

2020 has been a rough year

Where to start? We began with countries postering and threatening each other; the president of the United States was impeached by the House of Representatives; a global pandemic struck; “Social Distancing” became a new normal; racial injustices are being protested. Getting past the national headlines, many people still are grappling with the loss of loved ones; others find themselves unemployed; some might just find it difficult to cope with the challenging times. So these and other experiences might leave you feeling anxious, stressed, or in need of hope.

2020 is a tough year; feel real hope in your life
