Growing HOPE with Kathryn Lang
About This Show
Show Info: "Always find a way to laugh. Laughter sparks hope and once hope finds a way in then it all becomes possible." As an award winning author and syndicated radio host, Kathryn lets her personal life infuse her creative spirit to craft the stories of hope and possibility. Each phrase shows a part of Kathryn's heart that allows her to connect with others in an open and honest way. These connections begin the process of growing up relationships that make the way possible for the journey ahead. Kathryn C. Lang lives and writes in a little cabin in the woods in North Alabama along the Big Spring Creek. Local lore and local areas are infused throughout her writings and her presentations. Her encouragement and support (and often her materials) come from her loving children and husband (and best friend for more years than either wants to admit). She started writing at an early age and enjoyed the opportunities writing allowed for entertaining and encouraging others. She followed a different path in college and pursued a degree in Leisure Services with a focus on tourism and commercial recreations. Her work in Leisure Services for the University of South Alabama and NAS Cecil Field still allowed her to entertain and encourage others - often with written words. Kathryn started creating content for websites around the globe, and through their encouragement and instructions, she launched her own websites. Her freelance writing career became a full-time profession in 2007. Her writing moved from content for others to her own niche and focus in 2010. Her passion for helping others find a life of peace and joy has provided her with opportunities to share her encouragement through her own experiences in words both written and spoken. Kathryn believes that each person has a unique purpose to fulfill. She desires to help others find their own path to that purpose and design. A life lived in purpose will be one filled with peace. Kathryn offers a phrase of hope in order to shine the Light on the moment. She works through her columns, articles, books and workshops. Her personal hope is that every person who encounters her words will feel as if those words were written (or spoken) just for her or him. "In my fiction, I tell a story that provides an uplifting message entrenched in hope. In my non-fiction and columns, I offer words that will point to hope. In my talks, I tell stories that inspire hope. Helping others discover their path to hope is my focus. I write to that p.
