I started this Blog because God has sparked within me a desire to bring the message of health, hope and healing to all those who need it, but especially to those that have been touched by physical infirmities. At least some level of healing is available to all who ask, seek and believe!

Join me as I take a step of faith out of the boat and into the murky waters to begin my own journey of health and healing. We will be taking a closer look at how to find healing in our modern-day world and what God has to say about the process as well. Some of the posts will be on practical ways to achieve healing in our bodies; others will be inspirational and are meant to bring you hope. I think most of you will find that a lot of the information here challenges what you think you know about good health.

May Jehovah Rapha--God, Our Healer--open your hearts, minds and eyes as you explore this website. And may you never forget...to Always Hope.

Abide With Me

  1. Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
    The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide;
    When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
    Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me.
  2. Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
    Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
    Change and decay in all around I see—
    O Thou who changest not, abide with me.
  3. I need Thy presence every passing hour;
    What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?
    Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
    Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.
  4. I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
    Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness;
    Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
    I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.
  5. Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
    Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies;
    Heav’n’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
    In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.


  1. Thanks for the lovely poem!

    I would very much like to write to you privately Hope. I tried writing to HopeMCross @aol.com.

    I have not had a reply.

    I am the mother writing about her daughter. But I do not wish to write here, and I don't have any experiences to recount as yet.

  2. Dear Hope, I very much would like to contact you. I tried at HopeMcross@aol.com. I have not received any response. Don't know if that is the correct email. I am the mother who wrote there.

    1. Hi, I did not get your email. Please feel free to resend. Thanks!

  3. Hi Hope,
    As a fellow Palm Beach native and thinking of going to the Sponaugle Clinic, I found your blog site to be a real eye opener. I also was a patient of Chapman and one time only with Lacaya. Also impressed by your extensive due diligence in medical research with people like Cutler, Yasko and Nicholson, all of whom I have also followed. In any case, what lead me to considering going to the Sponaugle Clinic is my rapidly deteriorating health. I even spoke to a former patient from the UK who spent 12 there and was healed. He is a genuinely nice guy but I have very different issues - not Lyme - but severely destroyed gut, liver toxicity and menopausal hormone depletion. I was wondering if we might chat as I would love to ask a few more questions about how you are doing now and what ultimately helped you the most. I will try emailing you at hopemcross@aol.com if that is still valid. Best wishes,
