December's theme at Chapel is Hope. But what does hope really mean? Is it just a term we use instead of want, such as I hope I get a puppy for Christmas? Chapel this month has helped us get down to the root of what hope truly stands for. Hope, according to Webster, means to expect with confidence or to trust.

Coach Keisha Brown showed us that hope can save your life. If you trust God with confidence you can conquer the inconquerable. Because through God all things are possible! This inspiration is especially helpful during exam week when, even though it seems small scale, everyone is scared of failing and the time crunch! I have hope that God will get me and the rest of the Alma community through this stressful week of papers and exams.

2 Corinthians 1:7 – And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.

Ephesians 1:18 – I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
