LEVEL UP your dessert!

Your taste buds will sing THE OPERA after you’ve tried it! This gluten-free dessert has precisely 8 delicious layers where you can taste rich chocolate, espresso and coffee butter cream between the light fluffy layers of cake. After scooping into these silky layers, you hit the chocolate crunch at the bottom. The top of the Opera sparkles with glitter and you can see the word Compass piped in cursive chocolate letters. YUM!

When you dine at Compass, you help rescue victims of human trafficking! Compass gives its proceeds towards the mission! Compass is all about COMPASSion!

How to Feel Strong and Be Strong at Compass?

The Southwest Avocado Salad is my absolute favorite at Compass! I enjoyed salads pretty much every time I visited the café for the past two weeks! There is more in the café than just salad. There are exquisite cakes and a variety of coffee to choose from ☕️ There are also sandwiches, parfaits and macaroons too!

Personally I chose salad because I wanted to better my health. Not that it’s bad, I can still enjoy some cake & caffeine but one reason Compass is bringing out some healthier options is so we can feel strong and be strong! It’s a Word that God spoke to His people this year! These salads are delicious and loaded with more than just lettuce! There is an apple pecan salad with grilled chicken, chicken cesar, and southwest avocado with corn chips and grilled chicken. It’s already prepared for you which helps makes healthy living easy!

VBS

(Vacation Bible School)

Happens at Hope every year around August!

It’s an exciting FREE 2 days for kids filled with fun, learning, games, music, prizes, and an amazing experience! Last year’s theme was a safari. What will our building transform into next? Details and dates to come!

Beach Baptism

There are several baptisms through the year at HopeNYC but always one at the beach. It’s such a special and memorable way to get baptized Hopers get to enjoy a beach day afterwards along with a possible volleyball tournament. Details and date to come!

Now here are some summer tips!

Sunscreen: Applying your sunscreen indoors is important! This stuff is SLOWLY absorbed by your skin. Allow up 15 minutes before stepping outside to ensure protection! It’s definitely important to have on when the sun is at its peak between the hours of 11am-2pm

Freebies & discounts:

  1. Brooklyn Botanical Garden is free on Friday mornings!
  2. Long Beach is free after 6pm to relax, walk around, wet your toes, photograph, and play beach games! Read about the last time I went!
  3. The met museum in Manhattan takes a donation of your choice 25 cents and up from students!
  4. The Aquarium has discounted tickets right now because it’s other exhibits are under construction! The ticket includes a cool 4D movie!
  5. Bryant Park has fun free juggling lessons all week long! Follow @Bpjugglers

Photographers: Look into a polarizing filter! It will make your landscape photograph clearer and help everything in your image to be the proper color. Rivers, oceans and sky can loose it’s beautiful blue tone from yellow sun rays but a filter will bring out those blues much more!

These are the tips! I hope you enjoy and hope to see you the Freedom concert

What Did I learn? (Health Tips Included)

Does anyone own a scale with never-changing numbers? Numbers that would just remain the same no matter how hard you try….

Today, I stepped on the scale and those numbers changed! Praise God!

I took time this year to focus on health and research about the body, nutrition, fitness, stress, medicine, vitamins and more! I am also enrolled in two health Hope Groups are this spring semester. These group are very effective and available to you if you can find your way to HopeNYC.  One group is taught by an actual physician and the other is taught by a phenomenal woman who has conquered the most challenging weight-loss obstacles. I can share some of what I learned and I hope it can help!

One shot is all you need:  Cardio doesn’t have to be long and painful. It should be short and painful 😀 which is better! Cardio is suppose to prepare your body for the exercise, not be the exercise. Running and walking is great but it can’t sculpt the abs for you. Cardio helps your body to burn while you deal with the real exercises: abs workouts, weight lifting, leg sculpting, squats etc. Developing those muscles can help shrink those areas but you need a shot to start!

The recipe for this shot calls for:

  1. A series of exercises like running in place
  2. Plyo-jacks
  3. Bear crawls
  4. Knee high running
  5. Butt-kick running
  6. SPEED
  7. 30 seconds of each one!

It’s short! But it’s all you need.

Abs don’t just lookgood: Developing abs can save your back! The abs are like the strong front anchor of your spine. When you work on your abs, you help your back muscles tremendously. Back pain gets reduced because your core is helping your back muscles in supporting you. It’s not too late to start your ab workout. The plank is one of the most effective I heard from the doctor.

Your action will influence others around you! You can tell your loved ones to exercise and it will turn them away. Cook tasty healthy meals and desserts, take your walks, eat healthy in a restaurant and photograph everything. Your actions will surely influence someone to try it!

Has carbs lied to you?  We think it will fill us up when eating it all the time can make us hungry. Protein keeps you full for much longer. See which protein-filled foods are your favorites. Reducing carbs will surely give you results.

Motivation is a must! Meeting up as a class each week really helped. Having someone to motivate you is important. Circumstances and problems can stop your progress! Make sure you have a friend, counselor, nutritionist, family member or someone to help motivate you and hear your problems out! Youtube videos can help. Prayer can help tremendously! I believe you can do it.

Woman’s T Party

I was advised to put my tea bag on my eyes to reduce puffiness! The Tea party happened last Sunday at HopeNYC. I know you’re imaging floral dresses, big hats and tea pots but the women’s ministry had quite a different agenda in mind! It wasn’t tea it was T!

T is for

  • Tips! From reducing wrinkles to opening an online jewelry store to recreating your T-Shirt! We went home 🏡 rich in tips that can help make us money, destress & beautify us!
  • TV! With a big TV screen placed on the stage and a panning camera, we saw ourselves! In fact! This event was an exciting Live TV show!
  • Time with Friends! Everyone sat together around the tables enjoying food and all of the segments along with a fashion show.
  • Time for ourselves! It was indeed a getaway from the kids and husband because this was JUST FOR WOMEN 16 to 106 years old! 😃
  • Time with God! This was the best part! It’s truly a miracle to get stress to finally leave a woman’s mind because stress is stubborn carrying many reasons behind it. With a few individuals interceding and praying for us in God’s presence, He removed every bit of that stress! We left the meeting delivered and changed! More than just an enjoyable evening. Only God can do that. An aim for every woman’s meeting is to help make us more stronger each time so we can feel it and be it!
  • Tea there was none.

What You Need To Know!

What is a Sock Hop?

A Sock Hop was a dance event held for teenagers where they danced in their socks to avoid scratching the wooden gym floor with their shoes.

What dances were popular?

What did they wear?

This familiar Disney channel throwback shows some attire in this 50s themed episode- https://youtu.be/3AcGjhjwnfc

Notice the high waist, belt, knee length, bottoms and short sleeves top

Sunglasses, stud earrings and tie-on head pieces seemed to be the thing! They sure did wear HATS

Men wore jackets 🧥

ust a few of the many facts about the 50s! TODAY, HopeNYC’s Dance Ministry is accomplishing so much and I hope many of you will support the Sock Hop! Kids are learning how to dance every Friday and worship deeper! Men, women, adults and children are

dancing every Sunday and creating an atmosphere of worship at the front of the altar during service.

Before Easter!

HopeNYC has two amazing events leading up to Easter service! Check out my two previous blog posts for more info on these!

Good Friday

Saturday

The Best Part About Spring!

Truly, you deserve to be rewarded with a shiny gold plaque to hang on your living room wall stating that you have survived winter 2018. It was indeed a tough one but you made it through! You can now warm up a bit and toss off the weight of your heavy coats because spring is finally and officially here.

For hundreds of Hopers, the absolute best thing about spring is A HopeNYC Easter Experience! There is nothing like it! If you are residing or spending spring break in New York, you will enjoy Easter at HopeNYC!

It all starts with Good Friday Service! Come hear a great Word then experience just what Jesus did when He washed the feet of His disciples. We get to do the same for someone else (it’s optional) Buckets, water and towels are literally provided after the service.  

CALLING ALL KIDS! On Saturday, HopeNYC’s is having its 10th annual Easter Egg Hunt at Baisely Pond Park! There will be 20,000 candy filled eggs! Bring a basket and have your kids collect all the eggs they can! This is for children ages of 1-9 years old. There is a hunt for each of those age groups. If your child finds the golden egg he/she can win a brand new bike 🚲 The prize for a silver egg is a scooter 🛴. Be there early for registration! 

The best for last! There is service on Easter Sunday but it won’t be ordinary! This day will far exceed a spectacular broadway production and IT’S FREE! There’s even more to the occasion! THIS YEAR HopeNYC celebrates being 10 years old! There are great surprises in store for all guests on Easter Sunday! Come grab your seat early and experience this!
