Growing through Adversity!
by Biancia Tate
My name is Biancia Tate and, if I was to describe myself I would use the word Hope Bearer! So, what is a Hope Bearer one might ask? A Hope Bearer is one who can take the worse set of circumstances and find within them hope.
They are those people who have decided to let adversity be a teacher in their lives. They have learned that adversity can teach them such things as creative problem solving, stress management, perseverance, persistence, personal growth and development, forgiveness, patience, and self control.
These were the things I learned when my husband had a traumatic brain injury which resulted in him being comatose for 2 and 1 half months.
When he came home, he and I were complete strangers and, found we had to start our lives all over again. We had to learn to leave what we grieve to embrace what we chase. We learned to leave our past behind and to find the strength and courage to seek out our future and find hope.
We learned how to love one another unconditionally, the power of grace, and the importance of being patient and how to forgive and, all of these helped us to grow through adversity and discover destiny.
We also learned how to let God's spirit be in control and how to let Him lead us into the new life He had ordained for us.
We now have founded The Hope Network,Inc.
which is an online ministry to provide support, hope and healing to survivors of trauma. We invite you to view our website and, we hope we encourage and inspire you to become a Hope Bearer.
