Words of hope is part of the Faith for life collection (devotional series) and pairs verses from the Bible and from well-known hymns and choruses, with beautiful images.
In Words of hope, each A5 page is an opportunity to consider a different aspect of God’s goodness to us. The 24-page book can be enjoyed in one-to-one or group devotional settings, or individually.
Why Faith for life resources?
Faith endures through every season of life, including for people living with dementia. Faith for life acknowledges the profound dignity of the person with dementia, their desire to express and explore faith while also recognising changing needs. Using simple, uncluttered design and familiar and much-loved references, the Faith for life suite of resources enables engagement with the Bible and Christian practice, supporting ongoing spiritual growth.
