The Hope Prose Podcast

By Tara K. Ross & Rebekah Black

The Hope Prose podcast is dedicated to hope-filled MG and YA books – the authors who write them and the readers they inspire. We upload new episodes once every two weeks and hope to leave our listeners with sparks that ignite their own stories–whether in real life or fictional. We want our podcast to be a place that inspires you to live a life of creative purpose through reading, writing or maybe even singing. Words are kinda our thing, and communication is one of the most powerful gifts God has given us and we want to stoke the fire in your own faith and creative journey. With author interviews ranging from Nadine Brandes, Robin Jones Gunn, and many more, you are sure to leave with tidbits of information that we hope inspires and uplifts you.
