Every great dream begins with a dreamer.
Always remember, you have within you the strength,
The patience, and the passion
To reach for the stars
To change the world.

– Harriet Tubman


If this is your first time visiting this space, we hope you find it to be a haven in the midst of all the questions and problems and potentially even troubles and turmoil you may be facing. If you’re returning, thank you! May you be encouraged by what you find here today.

As we continue exploring our Hopes & Dreams, I had the great pleasure and privilege to sit down with our resident guide, Sharon, and let her share some of her wealth of wisdom with you all. It will give you a taste of what you’ll get to experience if you sign up for her 4-part class that covers the topic in even greater depth.

Let’s start with an easy one.  How long have you been teaching this class at Agape? 

Sharon: Oh that’s not easy! Let’s see… how many years has it been?  … It’s been somewhere between 5-10 years. Let’s call it 8 years.

Why do you continue to teach this same class year after year?

Sharon: Because even though the class material is the same, the students change. And it never gets boring hearing their stories and seeing them explore their dreams for the future. 

What do you hope the ladies who come through your class take with them at the end?

Sharon: Hope for their future and confidence in themselves.

How do you define Hopes & Dreams?

Sharon: Do you mean the class or the topic?

Let’s say both. How would you define hope?

Sharon: In this class, hopes and dreams get used almost interchangeably… Hope tells us there is something better ahead for us than whatever problems we are facing right now. It enables us to go to the same job every day while believing there is more for us than what we see right now. 

Our dreams are the things we want to accomplish even when we aren’t close to them yet.  And our dreams can be about us and about others as well.  

Is there anything you’d like to say directly to our readers?

Sharon: I encourage our readers to never give up on themselves or on their dreams.  And I want them to know with certainty that there are people who believe in them.
