What brings me hope

There is hope all around us

Pam Perry

By Rosalind Tompkins
Special to the Outlook

I have been enjoying chatting with some of the HOPEE (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment) awardees on my Think Hope Podcast and my latest guest was no exception. I interviewed Pam Perry, PhD., from Detroit Michigan. She is a publicist and social media guru. Over the past two decades she has collaborated with Christian authors and ministry leaders to help them get their messages out to a greater audience.

During the interview, Dr. Perry talked about how some people have a tough time dealing with rejection on social media and how their whole self-esteem is tied up in how many likes they get. They get high off the acceptance but cannot deal with rejection or negative comments to the point of many young people taking their own lives.

In fact, according to recent statistics, suicide is the 12th leading cause of death in the U.S. and the suicide rate in America is higher than it has been in more than 30 years. That is one of the reasons Mothers In Crisis launched the Hope Pass It On & Save A Life campaign providing free practical self-help tools and training to help people become more hopeful and share hope with others.

 Too many people are taking a permanent solution to temporary problems. 

Together we can make a difference in the lives of people when we learn to think hope, speak hope, imagine hope, and share hope through the practice of hopeology. Dr. Perry also shared about a time in her life when she went through a bankruptcy that affected her and her husband tremendously.

She stated that God sent someone to her at just the right time and she was able to start her own business, Ministry Marketing Solutions. There is hope all around us even in the most challenging times.
