Kind Words from Ministry Leaders

How we met…

It’s pure gold when words of endorsement come from women doing the real work of ministry, with boots on the ground and arms around their women.

They know what it’s like when someone opens their brand new Bible for the very first time.

They have extra boxes of tissue in their offices for a reason.

They gather in hospital rooms and funeral homes, baby showers and birthday parties.


These women are the real deal.

Lara and I planted a church together in Ohio where she now pastors and leads worship. She will do battle for you in the spiritual realm and makes a mean s’more. 

Sharon lives in the neighborhood where I grew up, and she’s led a Neighborhood Cafe for over eight years. We may never have met if my mama hadn’t knocked on her door!

Trinda is a Women’s Ministry leader at my Colorado church, where I taught the book’s material during the infamous summer of 2020. She selects Bible study curriculum that’s Scripturally based, theologically solid, and relevant. 

Katie and I were became instant friends over Turkish coffee and a shared love for Christ and his church. She’s a homeschooling hobby farmer who also leads Women’s Ministry


“With Amy’s encouragement, turn your hopefullys into hope fully in the Lord. What a difference a space makes! Jesus tells us that in this world we will have trouble. How will I respond when trouble comes? This book challenges me once again that my conduct, especially during those times of trouble, speaks louder than words for my own personal relationship with God . . . and to those watching. This is a great resource for groups to do together.”

Lara Price

pastor at Life Church Vineyard

“Amy’s study about hope came at God’s perfect time. The world has been in a shutdown of fear and uncertainty about the future, but Amy’s journey through 1 Peter reminds us of where our hope truly lies. Encouraging, challenging, and definitely worth reading.”

Sharon Jacobs

grateful gramma, harried homemaker, and blessed Neighborhood Café host

“This beautifully written, biblically rich deep dive into the life of Peter is a must-read. Full of scripture and real-life application, Can I Borrow a Cup of Hope? encourages readers to trade hopeless fears and hopeful fantasies for a firm and living hope found only in Jesus. Great for personal use or group study, this book is a resource you’ll find yourself returning to again and again.”

Trinda Windle

women’s ministry team

“Amy is that friend that encourages you and exhorts you in the same breath. She will pick you up, dust you off, and encourage you to keep running with fresh perspective on the very real and rooted hope we have in Christ… I appreciated the invitation to dive deep at the end of each lesson, and her hands-on resources are a treasure. Armed with engaging stories from the early church and from her own life, Amy invites us to remember together the grit from that great cloud of witnesses that came before and beckons us onward. Sure, we aren’t home yet, but books like this and friends like Amy make the wait that much sweeter.”
