Dig through the darkness to find the light. Author Nika Maples offers a dash of hope in Hunting Hope to those who think all is lost.

When you can’t see any hope in a season of difficulty, hunt for it by holding onto God’s character and letting Him develop your own. Hunting Hope suggests that there are signs of spring to be found in every dark winter season in our lives. Through real life examples and biblical insight, Nika Maples uses illustrations from her own life and from the lives of others to show that, in Christ, there is always hope, even in hardship. At twenty, Nika learned that when hope was all she had, she claimed it boldly while defying all odds to recover from a devastating stroke. The lessons from that struggle are powerful and universal.

Book Review:  Nika is a survivor of both lupus and a massive brainstem stroke. At the young age of twenty she became a quadriplegic as a result of a stroke which nearly took her life. She has know disappointment, disillusionment, depression, and despair. In her book, Hope Hunting, Nika shares how one can become a hope hunting even in the mist of great suffering and pain.

“Trying to find the reason for our winters is like trying to see the wind. Maybe the source of a dark season isn’t as important as the result of a dark season. Maybe it doesn’t matter what causes suffering in our lives nearly as much as it matters what suffering causes in our lives. If adversity brings about bitterness, fury, and disbelief in the Lord, then it will be a lost. But if it brings about humility, patience, and dependence upon the Lord, then it will be for His glory.” Hope Hunting, page 7.

Nika’s book will walk you through ways in which you can become a hope hunter. When one experiences seasons of darkness and despair it can be difficult to continue seeking hope, but Nika has written a book that will help readers to look past the darkness and still experience hope. This book is well-written, easy to read, and will renew hope in its readers. She gives real life examples of how she has been able to be a hope hunter.

If your looking for a book to help you find hope in a world that is full of brokenness Hope Hunting might just be the book for you. I would give this book 4 stars.

 

 Meet the Author
When Nika Maples was twenty years old a massive brainstem stroke left her unable to walk, speak, or even blink. Doctors warned her family she had as little as 48 hours to live. While trapped within her own body, unable to communicate her consciousness, all Nika could do was pray. Her faith sustained her, and a year later she walked back onto her college campus on her own two feet. Nika went on to earn a BS in mass communication and an MA in English Education. In 2007 she was named the Texas Secondary Teacher of the Year. She now writes and speaks full time, sharing her story of hope and endurance with groups across the country. Nika lives in Fort Worth, Texas.

The lessons from that struggle are powerful and universal, and she shares those lessons in her new book,&nbsp;<em><a href=”http://nikamaples.com/books/hunting-hope/&#8221; target=”_blank”>Hunting Hope</a></em>.</strong> Doctors warned that she had as little as 48 hours to live, and—if she lived at all—she would never walk or talk again. There was no hope on the horizon. So Nika started to hunt for it. Today, she not only walks, but she speaks to audiences everywhere about the power of hunting hope when a situation appears hopeless. She says hope remains camouflaged in the daily mundane. If we are not looking for it, we will miss it, though it is right before our eyes. <br /> <br /> <strong>Celebrate&nbsp;the release of&nbsp;<em>Hunting Hope</em>&nbsp;with a $200 Getaway Giveaway (details below) and a&nbsp;<a href=”https://www.facebook.com/events/257839644604010/&#8221; target=”_blank”>live webcast with Nika on May 26</a>!</strong> <br /> <br />
