Have you ever found yourself searching for one good reason to go on? Have you ever wondered if anything were going right in your life?

Even when life is at its absolute worst, we still have hope— and we always have a reason to go on. By carefully considering the moments when Jesus appeared after death to his unsuspecting followers, we discover that hope stands right in the middle of life’s crises. As many of us struggle to find real hope, this is a timely and vital message.

To the person who is searching for just one good reason to go on, this book presents you with ten. You are never without hope so long as one person is standing up for you.


About the Author

Sam’s mission as a writer and communicator is to rid the world of hopelessness. He grew up in a rural part of Northeastern Ohio in a family of artists, rebuilding wrecked cars with his dad, writing poetry with his mom, painting with his sisters, and wrestling with his brother. He loves to use mundane experiences as windows to God, like turning a car repair into a metaphor for human suffering. People note Sam’s creativity, depth, and passion, but he knows that it’s really his unsettled longing to help others realize that they are loved.

Samuel Kee holds a BA in psychology from Ashland University and a Master of Divinity from Trinity International University. He has served several years as a pastor, working with students, young adults, and families. He currently serves at North Suburban Church in Deerfield, IL, in addition to being an airport chaplain for Skyword Ministries in Chicago.

Praise for "Hope Stands"

Five-Star Ratings on Amazon


"Hope Stands is a book for the hopeless and for those who love them. Sam Kee reaches out and touches those who struggle with life and gives them reasons for living. I enthusiastically recommend this book." -Tremper Longman, Co-Author of Cry of the Soul


"[Hope Stands] ...offers Hope to those who for any reason find themselves thinking “I can't take this anymore... there's only one solution... one thing to make it all stop." But Sam points to others in the Scriptures and outside of them who discovered that the darkness projected a reflected light that only it could make visible..." -Mike Kellogg, Senior Announcer with Moody Radio & Host of Music Thru The Night
