Building Communities of Hope helps us move forward, empowered and purpose-filled. Community building is real, practical, and inspirational. When communities face serious challenges, life can be hard. Yet we prevail. Everyday heroes are community builders who mobilize others, bringing positive change. We can be fueled by hope, empowering our communities. Let’s move forward to excite, inspire, and mobilize one another.
This book is about all of us , everyday heroes like you and me! Chapters provide stories and practical resources for how to: overcome obstacles, use practical strategies for community building, support one another to greatness, become a beacon of hope, and have power for the journey. Ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary things – especially when we collaborate. Whatever our challenges, we can create amazing results by working in collaboration.
This book gives you tools and resources to make positive, long-lasting systemic changes. We all learn from people like: the 11-year-old who mobilized a city to care for its homeless, a model of recovery on a motorcycle, and the guy who came home to die, and lived to transform his community.
From a diverse and amazing group of community leaders, to organizations, the book is full of examples about how people overcome challenges like despair, economic setbacks, natural disasters, prejudice and racism, health issues, and limited resources.
There are stories about diverse communities with “mojo” from Philadelphia to New Orleans, the Netherlands to Puerto Rico, and New Mexico to Wyoming
“Living in the Slipstream” enables us to power up, transmute tragedy into action and hope, and mobilize one another to greatness.There are chapters that give you resources for holding onto hope when the going gets rough. We learn how to maximize the harmonics of our lives.
What will this book provide for you? It will help you see yourself as a positive agent of change , a community hero who can continue to make a difference every day! It will provide you tools and resources that will turbo charge your life. It helps all of us to multiply wealth in its many forms.
You’ll probably see something of yourself in these stories about people who make a difference. Together we can build sustainable, vibrant communities by unleashing the power of hope.
The book also provides you an opportunity to capture your own story. I’d love for you to buy the book, accompany me on this journey, and share your story with me.
Thanks so much for your interest. All the best to you, Anne.
