About the Book

Hope Amid Hopelessness is a true story about the loving, merciful, caring, all powerful, ever present, gracious, just, sovereign, personal Abba Father (God) working in the lives of Jim and Laura Hansen. As Jim cared for Laura while she struggled with major clinical depression that later led to borderline personality disorder, he realized quickly that he could not fight this battle alone. Turning to his Abba Father, he sought understanding, knowledge, and wisdom from the only source that could truly help.

As Jim struggled with his faith, God was always there for him. He showed Jim through the Bible the path through mental illness. Although Jim’s Abba Father showed him the path, he struggled following the path. You will see how God patiently reminded him time and again of the things that he had already learned.

The roller-coaster ride of Jim and Laura’s life was full of surprises and twists and turns for them, but Jim realized through this experiences that his Abba Father was never surprised or changed by the quick turns. The story goes through five suicide attempts and multiple attempts to treat Laura for her different symptoms. Jim struggled with believing God’s Word. During the last sixteen-plus years of questions and tragedy, Jim learned to trust God as he carefully and lovingly led Jim through the ups and downs of his life. Although many questions were answered by Jim’s Abba Father, several still remain unanswered. However, Jim knows that there is an answer to all of them because his Abba Father has convinced him that the answers are in his Abba Father.

Jim’s desire is to give glory to God and help those who are in a similar situation. He hopes to do that by showing others how his Abba Father aided him.
