We all hope for many things in our lives —

for our circumstances to change, for our businesses to be successful, for equality, justice, and positive change, and even for a cure to disease. But when the things we hope for don’t happen, we can get stuck in a cycle of disappointment.

But what if it didn’t have to be this way? What if, instead, we recognized our disappointment for what it is — a part of the Cycle of Dangerous Hope, rich with opportunities designed to help us grow?

In Anderson’s story, you will learn about overcoming disappointment and persevering when hope seems lost. Dangerous Hope will guide you through: 

  • Understanding the Cycle of Dangerous Hope
  • Sowing the seeds of Dangerous Hope 
  • Pulling the Weeds of False Hope
  • Using the mulch of Hope Deferred

~Carleen Soule

“Mandy’s wisdom is beyond her years. As a 63 year old woman, I read her book and learned so much that many may never come to understand in all our years. There are certain quotes in her book that stood out to me. “What we hope for matters.” “Sowing seeds intentionally.” So many times in life we fly through life as it is passing by. “If what you hope for doesn’t go away, it’s because it is connected to your very purpose on this planet.” What is Dangerous hope, false hope, deferred hope, toxic positivity, facing negativity? Mandy reveals this in her story, a story anyone who has suffered loss, disappointments will learn the cycle of hope. Thanks, Mandy, for teaching this old lady a few new tricks.”
~Susan Beehler, Small Business Owner and RAYMA Team Client
