About Hope Unfolding

God’s love, plans, and promises for you are forever unfolding.
 
I get it, Momma. I totally get it.

Every day you wake up and try your very best. You love, give, and pour out your life for the ones who call you Momma. But no matter how much you offer, there are still days you feel as though you come up short. You worry, Am I loving these babies enough? Is this ever going to get easier? Why does it seem like I am the only one who cannot balance it all?

Sometimes, we just need hope (and maybe a long uninterrupted nap).

We need someone to help tune our hearts to the voice of the Father and to remind us that He has not forgotten about us.

In Hope Unfolding, Becky Thompson is a friend who reminds you that you aren’t alone, and that God is still writing your story. She guides you to encounter the Truth of God’s presence that not only fuels you with strength, but also a fresh confidence. And beyond gaining faith that tomorrow could be different, you find hope and purpose where you are standing today.

Praise

“Becky Thompson shares the truth of motherhood—the slobbery kisses and the heartwarming moments blended seamlessly with the sleepless nights, tantrums, and never-ending piles of laundry—while constantly pointing us back to the Father who loves us beyond comprehension. In opening up a copy of Hope Unfolding, readers are essentially invited to sit down over coffee with a dear friend to talk about the real things in life. Becky is our fellow mom friend who wrestles with the same questions we do: ‘Does what I’m doing matter?’ ‘Can I make it through today?’ ‘Where is God in the dirty dishes?’ In Hope Unfolding we are offered space to ponder the truth of God’s Word as Becky offers a perspective of hope, gratitude, and grace in all the moments of motherhood.”
—Lauren Casper, founder of Laurencasper.com and upcoming author with Thomas Nelson

“Becky Thompson’s words are like a good cup of coffee: warm, inviting, and the perfect soul refreshment in the everyday chaos of motherhood. An encouraging, affirming, and uplifting read, Hope Unfolding is the perfect gift of grace for every mom.”
—Kayla Aimee, author of Anchored: Finding Hope in the Unexpected

“Calling all moms in the trenches. Whether you are up to your eyeballs in diapers and dishes or dealing daily with homework and teens, this book is for you! In its pages you’ll discover a respite from the rush and a dose of hope amidst the heartache that often accompanies motherhood. I wish I’d had this encouragement when my kids were small, and you can bet your sweet spit-up covered sweatshirt that all new moms I know will be gifted one from me at their baby showers. I can’t recommend this grace-filled volume enough!”
—Karen Ehman, New York Times bestselling author of Keep It Shut and Hoodwinked, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker, wife and mother of three

“Becky’s warm and vulnerable storytelling had me nodding yes throughout the pages of this book. Hope Unfolding will resonate with every momma who has ever played the comparison game, doubted herself, or just needed someone to say ‘me too.’”
—Jessica N. Turner, author of The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You

This book has been on my shelf for a while and I've just kept skipping over it. Oh, how I regret that! I could have benefited from reading awhile ago, but so glad I finally picked it up. The other just had an honest way of relating to each chapter and I just felt myself in each area. I loved the stories mixed with God's word. It was very easy to understand, yet challenged me on many levels. I believe this author has another book...

If there's one thing I need more of in my life it's grace. In general, I tend to have abundant grace for other people and next to none for myself. This book was so well-timed for me. I loved how she wrote as if she were my friend, gently reminding me of God's truth. Throughout the reading, there were questions that I often used as journal prompts. Each chapter ends with three sections: Let's Talk, Let's Pray, and Let's Hope. The first really...
