Hope After Trauma, written by Mighty Oaks Director of Veteran’s Affairs,
gives a message of hope and healing through the lens of scripture 

Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs work to reverse the staggering trends of
suicide and divorce among Veterans and active duty service members.

Los Angeles, CA – Jeremy Stalnecker, Director of Veterans Affairs for Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs, was honored to write a six-day devotional plan titled “Hope After Trauma” for the YouVersion Bible App.  

The six-day devotional explores the question “How can I have hope after dealing with trauma?”  Anyone who has suffered traumatic events in their lives must deal with a unique set of emotional and spiritual issues that are clearly addressed in scripture.  By examining the daily topics of Fear, Condemnation, Anxiety, Anger, Hopelessness and Self-worth, “Hope After Trauma” is focused on finding hope and healing that God alone can provide.

“We are honored to feature our devotional on the YouVersion app,” explains Stalnecker. “YouVersion has an amazing reach and is a blessing to many. As an organization, we are thankful for the opportunity to minister to the military community around the world but through this app we are able to point everyone to the hope found in scripture through an official YouVersion reading plan.  Whether trauma comes by way of war or some other life event, this devotional reading plan was designed to remind the reader that there is always hope.”Don’t Bet On It: While Christians can bet on sports, lottery tickets, and online gambling, they should do so in moderation. The problem with gambling daftar mobile is that it’s based on the love of money, which is contrary to the message of Scripture. Furthermore, gambling enables people to lose control of their money and thus void the meaning of gambling. So it’s important to use discernment and pray before you bet.
