Publisher's Summary

Read by the author.

Now more than ever, we all face trying situations. The hope we need and hunger for is not a strategy or state of mind, but faith in Jesus. He stands secure for us in the face of every trial, from loss to sickness to injustice. Through 20 short prayers, 10 personal stories of miraculous transformations, and Biblical teachings, Hope in 60 Seconds will help you take the first steps towards a journey of security in the hope of Jesus.

“At twenty-one I was as far from hopeful as anyone could get. Maybe as far as you are now.”

These are the words of Cristina Baker as she considered her traumatic life: from childhood abuse to troubled teen years, to a descent into substance abuse, she resonates with a lost world who understands first-hand how easy it is to lose hope. Then, just as she was about to go to jail for drug possession, the Hero of Hope, Jesus Christ, came into her life and set her on a completely new path.

If you are weary and doubting, Cristina understands. Hope in 60 Seconds will help you to:

  • Be encouraged and empowered by someone who has been in a similar place of discouragement and discovered Christ’s authority and love,
  • Learn how Jesus establishes hope and begin to experience it first-hand in the darkest of circumstances,
  • Grow in your ability to connect with Jesus and find the hope you have longed for all of your life, and
  • Prove that a connection with Jesus is the ultimate source of hope.

The message of Cristina’s life is Jesus, the hope we need and hunger for—a hope that will stand secure in the face of brokenness, loss, sickness, abuse, a brain tumor diagnosis, injustice, and death. In Hope in 60 Seconds, she shares the steps of her journey to encounter, receive, and walk in the hope of Jesus, and offers you powerful wisdom for how you can take the same journey for yourself.

Jesus is amazing

Thank you for sharing your story about Jesus and how he changed your life. I’m not much of a reader, but your book had me wanting to read it more and more every day. I was lucky enough to be able to preorder the book and was one of the lucky ones to get it first. It arrived only 4 days ago and I have completely read it from cover to cover already. For someone who doesn’t read a lot, that’s good. I will read it again, and I’m sure I’ll learn something new about myself and the love I have for Jesus.

Also, thank you for the “Prayers of Hope” chapter. For someone who has trouble praying, this chapter helps me a lot.

May God bless you and your family and continue doing what you do to reach others and share your love of Jesus!
