The HOPE FOR TODAY monthly column started in 2006.  It is written by Clint Decker and published in local newspapers and online. The column offers hope through the current events of our day.  Clint may select a news headline to address or a topic that connects with a wide audience then discusses it while weaving together encouraging spiritual truths.

Currently, we are in over 265 newspapers across 10 states.  You can access a full archive of the column online through the HFT website.  Each week we are calling more papers with the goal of contacting newspapers in all 50 states.  If you find Clint’s column in your local paper tell them “thank you”.  If you’d like to get the column in your local paper, contact us.  Also, we’d love to get your comments and feedback on any of the posts you read.
