Many people view hope as in "I sure hope so," and "whatever will be, will be," not really expecting anything more, but that is not Bible hope. The Greek word the Apostles used when writing about hope was elpis. It means to have a great expectation of good. We are able to have that great expectation of hope because God is a good God and He has good plans for us as stated in Jeremiah 29:11. Like the scripture above, we can take hold of hope (a great expectation of good from God) to lead us to a life of victory.
Sandra and her husband, Richard Roberts are the Covering and Administrators at Hope In Life Ministry. They are both ordained ministers. Since 1996, Sandra and Richard were members of several pastoral teams, they helped plant four churches, and they are the former Senior Co-Pastors of Natomas Community Church. In 1998, they were given a prophetic word that they would one day oversee a prayer counseling ministry. The Lord made that happen in 2013. Sandra also serves as a Biblical Prayer Counselor in the Hope In Life Ministry Rocklin office. She has served as a prayer minister and counselor since 1990, meeting with people of all ages, from children, teens, adults seniors, couples and families.
Sandra is a Certified Christian Counselor (CCC) and holds a Master of Arts in Christian Counseling, and a Biblical Naturopathic Doctorate (BND). She has a diploma from Rhema Bible School and completed Elijah House Schools of Ministry training as well as Sozo ministry, and she has knowledge of Theophostic healing prayer.
In 1976, Sandra "officially" gave her life to the Lord, but she always had a deep sense of God's presence, even as a young child. At the age of seven, she gathered the neighborhood children to teach them to pray and went door-to-door taking up offerings for orphans.
Sandra understands first-hand the pain of abandonment, rejection and the complications that can arise from trauma and underdeveloped communication skills. From her own healing journey, she came to view those painful circumstances as a training ground for the glory of God and the counseling ministry He has placed her in today. She understands how wounds of the heart can interfere in developing healthy relationships between family, friends and co-workers, and she also knows that no wound is too deep for the Holy Spirit to heal and bring transformation.
In addition, Sandra is a national and international lecturer, and hosted a cable TV program called Experiencing God's Grace to encourage people to know how much our Heavenly Father loves us. She writes children's books, devotionals, bible studies, served as a chaplain to those in hospitals and prisons, and she taught a bible study in the California State Capitol Senate for two years. She also has over 30 years of experience in conflicts resolution, and is a published author with Thomson Reuters/Westlaw. She has written articles for the Westlaw Legal Solutions and the Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute.
The most frequent comment Sandra's clients say about her is how they feel the peace and presence of the Holy Spirit while counseling with her.

"Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure..." Hebrews 6:17-19 (NIV)
"...On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us." (2 Corinthians 1:10 NIV)
