HOPE Soldiers In Action: Destiny – Missions Accomplished!

Destiny Marie2

  “When you help others, you’re not only giving to them, but you’re also giving to yourself.” ~ Destiny Let the record show that I didn’t have to dig far for this piece of inspiration…Destiny is my niece. :-) That aside, she is amazing. At 18, she has already completed two mission trips to help the underserved in our country. I love this interview so much. Yes, she is my niece…but HOW did I not know of her “awesome-ness” when it comes to {Read More}

Recently, I came across a post on Facebook from a friend whose daughter Malia was on a mission for “Feeding America“. I was instantly intrigued. I just had to know where this little Hope Soldier’s inspiration and drive came from. I reached out to her {Read More}

Hope In The Unseen

I can hardly believe it has been almost two months since the last blog post. Truth be told: I am lost. (insert tiny sad violin) Some of you will remember Anchored Hope as “Catina’s Causes – A Tiny Little Coupon Meets A Great Big Cause”. The mission was to drum up as many coupon freebies as possible for donations to local non-profits. We ROCKED IT and touched so many lives. Then this happened…. “Catina’s Causes” became a group effort and the {Read More}

Soul Satisfied Sunday: University Of Texas Commencement 2014

“If you want to change the world….” If you do nothing else this week, take 20 minutes to watch the 2014 University Of Texas Commencement address by Admiral William H. McRaven.

Make your bed every single morning. It will give you a sense of {Read More}

Soul Satisfied Sunday: Finding Hope

Brick_Hope

Sometimes finding hope is just a matter of reflecting on where you are and where you want to be. If you feel unsatisfied it’s time to take a look back. Ask yourself: What got me here? What decisions did I make that planted me in this very spot? Is this some type of mistake? Did the “man upstairs” screw up? Chances are, the answer is no. You are exactly where you are supposed to be, struggles and all. Looking at this {Read More}

Anchored Hope: Our First Team Project For 2014

Olive Crest

Well, it has taken some time to get things shifted from “Catina’s Causes” to “Anchored Hope”. With that being said – the needs in our communities don’t stop so this place will just have to be “Under Construction” while we are moving along. First project of 2014: Easter baskets for children at Olive Crest, a local nonprofit that has transformed the lives of over 60,000 abused, neglected, and at-risk children and their families since 1973!     We chose the teenage {Read More}
