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.
When Nika 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.

Hope is not an accident. Sometimes it has to be hunted, and hunting it takes courage.
Hope hunters know how to excavate hope from hardship. There is dirt underneath their fingernails and sweat on their shirts. They rake through the rubble of an unwanted situation, digging into difficult circumstances because they have come to expect that adversity will produce good. They believe that light always triumphs over darkness. They have learned to walk through winter with their eyes on spring.
Nika Maples became a hope hunter after suffering a massive brainstem stroke that left her quadriplegic in her twenties. 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.
Whether you or someone you know is going through a situation that feels hopeless, you will find encouragement in Hunting Hope. Whether you are experiencing a medical trauma, a financial hardship, or a relational crisis, you will find empowerment in Hunting Hope. As you read, you will cling to 20 truths about Gods character and practise 5 daily disciplines that will develop your own character in crisis.
You will become a hope hunter.
Maybe it doesnt matter what causes suffering in our lives as much as it matters what suffering causes in our lives. Maybe we were all meant to be hope hunters.
And I thought . . .
Where do I begin. This was an amazing little book in a mere 228 pages Nika Maples shares wisdom, insight and encouragement!
This book will touch your heart! You'll walk away feeling encouraged and confident that God truly is with us even through our trials.
This book deserves my 5 star rating!
And a little about the author . . .
Nika Maples is the author of Twelve Clean Pages, the memoir of her survival of lupus and a stroke that left her quadriplegic at age 20. After learning to walk and talk again, she became a public school teacher, winning 2007 Texas Secondary Teacher of the Year. She holds an MA in English Education from Columbia University and currently is pursuing an MDIV from The Kings University.

debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Hunting Hope ~ Nika MaplesMay 16, 2016debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Nika tells us of how God uses your dark times as HIS plan for you. At the beginning of each chapter is a bible verse, a personal story (that relates) and biblical explanation. This book will show you how GOD prepares us with the darkness of life. When we have a trial or tribulation this is HIS way of getting us to seek HIM as being a Hope Hunter and the way HE gets us to follow HIM. So much good is in this book, it is very well written and easy to understand.
I would recommend this to all ages, it is a great book that will help all of us in our journey through daily life. It has so much information and reference, but is done in the format that will keep you reading. You will want to use what you have read in this book at your work and for all of your life situations. This would be a great book to use as a daily devotional read, a book group, bible study and just for those that you care about. Everyone can use this book for everyday.

lcjohnson1988IndianaAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5interestingMay 16, 2016lcjohnson1988IndianaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4In Hebrews, we are reminded in chapter twelve that we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses. Perhaps those witnesses are from the present as well as the past. We can reflect to the world around us the glory of God in ways we cannot even fathom. The life experience of Nika really is beyond words though she does a great job sharing very transparently what she experienced in her life.
People will read of a testament to what God can do as well as what goes on inside of a person when there is no way to express it to others outwardly. When Nika couldnt talk or motion to other people her desires, she learned that one can always seek and talk with God. Plus, as her title suggests when we are very low and no human power can touch the area of our hearts that is for God alone, we seek hope. We dont seek hope as a feeling, but hope embodied in a Person named Jesus.
All humans need hope to lift them up when trials knock them down. I hope you sense the truth of Him as the only hope capable of doing above and beyond what we ask or think!
