Catching Fireflies

a 7 Step Poetic Guide to Capturing Glimmers of Hope

Hope is a firefly…a glimmer of light in the dark! Have you ever gone out on dark summer’s night in search of fireflies? Do you recall the hope-filled expectation you felt as you sat quietly in the night looking for tiny sparks of light? This same principle can be applied to the dark times of our lives. The hearts of many women are filled with hopelessness and despair. Whether a result of personal circumstances or the world around them, women are losing hope. As a result, they are becoming heartsick. But there is good news! When our days are at their darkest those are the moments we should be running after hope! That hope is the firefly! The glimmer of light in the darkness. The majestic glow in what appears to be a darkened forest of despair. By drawing parallels between hope and the firefly, Donloyn LeDuff Gadson, shows the reader how to find light and hope in seasons of darkness. Through teachings, shared stories, poetry, and journal prompts Catching Fireflies takes women on a 7-step poetic journey to capturing glimmers of hope! If you have been struggling with hopelessness, then grab your jar! It’s the perfect time for Catching Fireflies!
