It’s YOUR Time

I spend my time often telling our ladies that the little things add up to an entire lifetime before we know it. The small steps we take everyday, which seem unimportant at the time, become our existence and the mark we leave on the world. In the past month I’ve had some gut wrenching emotions…

Men’s Resident of the Month – April 2016

By Lance Lang | May 17, 2016 | 5 Comments

It was a Sunday night a few months ago and I was sitting around a big circle table in BJ’s restaurant. I was surrounded by all the managers from each men’s mentoring home. (If you don’t know, all of the HIA houses have two managers that live in the homes and provide direction, mentoring, enforce…

It Was Christmas Eve

It was the day before Christmas, surrounded by family and friends and unbeknownst to me my engagement day; that my phone started ringing. A 405 area code popped up and I almost didn’t answer the buzzing phone. It was Christmas Eve after all. But, I reluctantly picked up the phone the most upbeat voice I…

It’s Contagious

By Allyson VinZant | Apr 20, 2016 | 1 Comment

Lately, I’ve been sick. Not the runny nose, give me a trash can now before I loose it sick. But the kind of sick that is unexplainable. My head feels like the pressure around it is going to make it cave in on itself. I can hear the rushing of my carotid artery in my…

I am not good enough. I can give you 50 reasons to back that up. My hips are too big. My hair just never seems to look right. My laundry room looks like a college dorm-room. It is simple to see that I am average. Not special in so many ways. For many years of…

From full to FULLER HOUSE! Last Sunday night at Hope HQ a realization hit me. It was sad, scary and exciting all at the same time. As I stared around the living room I counted 35 men! Can you imagine 35 men in your living room? It was crazy. The A/C could barely keep up,…

He’s sober, now what? My loved one has been sober just shy of 5 years. It was a long journey to sobriety but we have arrived, for today. But, if I allow myself to be really honest, Lance being sober didn’t change everything like I had envisioned all those year. I spent so many years…

Let Me Suffer

I get it. I know that opening this blog/email with the tingling anticipation to hear what wisdom Lance has to lay on you AND then realizing it’s not written by Lance… is a bummer. It’s how I feel when my church has a guest pastor. It’s just not quite the same. I get it, I…

me too…

By Allyson VinZant | Feb 9, 2016 | 2 Comments

Every time I sit down to write I ask God to guide my thoughts and my hands to accurately depict His voice. I approach my keypad in fear most days, fully believing I have peaked in my last piece. But, today is different. Today, God gave me the immense task of writing about what He…
