This Could Be The Best Thing That Will Happen To You in 2018!

Imagine having the solution to your problem! Walking strong after an injury and being healed from incurable diseases. Finances that can defeat your debts, fulfill your needs and supply for others. Imagine separated families finally coming back together! A loveless marriage full of broken hearts become mended and revived with a renewed love that will last a lifetime. A world of people who can look past themselves to see what others need. A purposeless soul becoming a significant someone. 

Can you imagine any of these miracles happening to you? NOW EXPECT IT! 

From WHO? The only one who can do it: J E S U S 

HOW? WHERE? Believe and call on Him anytime wherever you are!

Seeking Him during our revival is amazing time for you to get closer and hear from Him! This month, I encourage you to be part of HopeNYC revival Wednesdays! The first service starts tonight at 7pm! Serious prayer has gone into these dynamic four days! Hopers are interceding for everyone including YOU to find Hope. This truly can be the best thing will happen to you this year!

Filling you In With Encouraging Tips!

This blog discusses good news and fills you in on kingdom events I hear about.

Today, I think we can use some encouragement. Obviously, we have all been through a number of obstacles. The battle can feel ongoing, after taking multiple attempts to seek out solutions and wait for deliverance.

A dollop of depression, a drizzle of stress, shavings of bitter, and sprinkles of anxiety can really seem to top it all off. It’s unhealthy!

Instead, fill up with as much as The Lord as you can in any way. HEAR, SING, DANCE, READ, SPEAK, LEARN ABOUT and SEEK HIM!

It may seem tough to push through or figure out how it would all be okay but don’t leave it to chance. Embrace the one who adores you right now. Even if it doesn’t make sense, having anything to do with Jesus can bring you freedom and peace from the feelings in your mind as you continue to wait for your answer. No matter what, His love will chase you down.

Get your fill:

  • Pray… then open your bible.
  • Pray with one or two friends who will support and agree with you. Matthew 18:19
  • Listen to worship songs throughout your day and prayer time. (Comment for suggestions)
  • Download the Ending your day right app.
  • Find a plan in the Bible app that suits you (21 days to beat depression is a good one even if you’re not all that depressed)
  • Went to church? Was the last sermon amazing? Listen to it again during the week by asking the media team if there is a CD/MP4 or live stream information.
  • Encourage yourself when there is no one and speak life. It works more than you know! There was actually a physical experiment that proves your words changes things. (Comment for more details)
  • Pray alone at home and on walks.
  • Remember that all things good and bad work together for your good if you live in Jesus.
  • Make a list of the things that are actually going good right now on paper.
  • Remember Jesus: He has overcome the world and has went through far worse. He gets you!

At HopeNYC, many has been delivered from problems and healed from “incurable” diseases! This is a praying church and The spirit of God is here! Visit if you are in or visiting New York www.HopeNYC.com

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.

Sticky Wings

“I brought you back 5 wings ”

It was one of the most glorious statements you could ever hear from a husband after a long day of errands and no dinner. He had just returned from a Hope Group called The Head of The Household. They discuss their important roles as a husband and the real stuff about marriages with a new restaurant being their classroom each time. Men can benefit from a group like this!

Dallas BBQ is of course the place of the sticky wings and it has been a favorite spot for Hopers maybe….for about 10 years now! We’ve enjoyed youth Christmas parties, ministry meetings, Hope Group fun days, ladies day out, men’s night out and just plain hanging out! You learn and grow so much from just attending HopeNYC; The services, taking a Hope group class, and especially on an outing over a plate of sticky wings!

On an upcoming post I’ll share alittle more about how the Hope groups semester went and how you can grow if you would like to take a class in the future!

Mother’s Day Tips With Special Invite!

This Sunday is Mothers day! It is also…

  • A day off from work!
  • Spring day!
  • Traffic day!
  • A church day!
  • Special day!
  • 4 days away!

Heres how to make it the best possible!

Tip # 1: Cook breakfast! Mother’s Day is only 1 day and you gotta make it special for her every waking moment you have! You may have plans to take her out to lunch or dinner later. Let her experience both a home-cooked meal and a chef’s dish.

Do it in 3 Steps!

  1. Decorate: Find fancy floral decorative dollar store dishes or expensive at-home tableware. Pull up a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY graphic on your tablet and leave it on the table. Flowers help too if possible.
  2. Quietly cook the favorites! What are they? Sunny side up eggs or a spinach omelet? Toast on the side or a stack of hot cakes? Bacon or parfait? 🥞🍞🥓🥪
  3. Add extras: Make a mini fruit platter with chocolate/nutella dip, basket of fresh baked biscuits, muffins, cinnamon rolls whatever she likes. She is not up rushing at 6am to go to work so this breakfast will be a special sit-down slow sweet moment.

Tip # 2 Pick your restaurant wisely! You don’t want to drive to Manhattan because both the Van Wyck expressway and 59th street bridge will be crowded (You’re welcome) You might want to be careful with chain restaurants because they are popular and will be packed! Try a place that is just a nice stroll away in your neighborhood. Somewhere that isn’t so well-known. You may be surprised about the food! You can also take the same approach as tip #1 and use food delivery if it’s too tough. Just don’t let her lift a finger and cook. If it is a nice day and you own a house with a backyard, BBQing her lunch on the grill is a fantastic option. Just make sure she is not doing most of the work to help you prepare.

Tip #3 Give her useful gifts! Most mom’s will prefer things that they’re going to use! I’m not suggesting a pot or state of art vacuum cleaner. Let her be excited to use the gift! Not work some more. Try a beautiful spring dress, make-up pallets, spa items, hair styling tools and products, gift cards, jewelry, journal, book by her favorite author, purses, a kit for her hobby, novelty kitchen items or perhaps a framed photo!

Blue Mason Jar that separates into measuring cups

Cute moon necklace for $5.99

Personal at-home nail dryer

Foot spa that vibrates for an amazing at-home foot massage!

Tip # 4 Acknowledge the women in your life! Take this important day to give your wishes to the other women in your life. The ones in your family like grandmothers, aunts, sisters with children and godmothers. Pastors are very important to be honored too! Give your wishes to anyone who is expecting. Reflect and think if there were any women who don’t possess children of their own or have children who aren’t living nearby but has done so much for you. Let them know they are loved and give them a gift 💝

Tip # 5 Bring her to HopeNYC’s Mother’s Day Service! After a wonderful breakfast, have your mother dress up and take her to HopeNYC! She’s in for a treat. As you enter, the ushers will make you feel welcome. Let her receive a blessing and hear an incredible well-needed message from The Lord just for her. She will get nice gifts and be loved all service long with a fantastic program planned. There is such a significant difference spending a mothers day at HopeNYC vs spending it at home. I can’t explain 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 Makes This Easter Different?

Grab a coffee from Compass! Make your way upstairs and have your seat! Show control is taking over this Easter Sunday at HopeNYC!

This production was carefully planned and put together to express the wonderful person of Jesus and show what He has done for the world! It’s going to be a broadway style production!

The Kids are Busy!

School is not the only thing this week on the minds of the kids at HopeNYC. They have been busy helping victims of human trafficking! Creating over 60 candy-filled boxes! Taking charge of a breakfast menu! Supporting the ministry! Prepping for a 2018 launch event!

Kids have a blast at HopeNYC church. They

learn, pray, grow and play but also take care of their ministries. HopeKidz and Tweens help kids grow in Christ all year round in the most exciting creative ways. They’re constantly aiming to make each year better than the last. They also make new kids feel welcomed and at times make it their mission to help others across the globe.

Sending over some shoes & toiletries over the past summers.

Hope Kidz

This week, Hope Kidz created love boxes just in time for Valentine’s Day! They were brightly colored, beautifully wrapped and filled with chocolate! Hope Kidz provided the perfect presents for your loved ones and supported their ministry financially!

HopeNYC Tweens

The Tweens ministry is exclusively for kids ages 10-12. They meet every Friday at 6pm for fellowship, worship, games, prizes, food & The Word! They also plan trips & have fun video contests!

They are launching with their first meeting tomorrow at 6pm! After a fantastic service they are serving up breakfast on Sunday at Compass: Ham and cheese sliders with tater tots! They successfully sold tickets over the week and all proceeds are going towards rescuing victims of human trafficking and providing clean drinking water to impoverished countries.

I’m just typing in amazement! Being a weekly attendee at HopeNYC, I see their enthusiasm, faith and passion in what they do! This has been a busy week but they’re going accomplish a lot this year!
