This week we have the pleasure of learning about the life and work of Daisy Rain Martin. Cody's interview with Daisy revolves around one of the most painful and damaging event a person can experience. Daisy's process of turning abuse into hope is life-giving and joyful. Through the journey, Daisy not only finds transformation, but shares the transformation as a Hope Giver. Daisy writes:
It is the best of things. I’ve learned that we Hope Givers are, in fact, quite flawed. We don’t always win. We are scarred and weathered and bruised from life’s battles, and sometimes we even feel as if we are barely getting by, if you want to know the truth. Hope Givers have an absolute willingness to intentionally and deliberately put themselves in close proximity with people who are in pain, for the sole purpose – dare I say, the soul purpose – of pouring hope into the lives of those they love. And even for some they don’t even know. Or don’t even like. In sitting with people in their pain, I’ve come to realize what it truly means to be a Hope Giver...."
