Hope Uprising was formed by former drug addict, Amy Lambert. Through Amy’s own personal journey of battling, and overcoming addiction, she was inspired to create a movement that would not only reach those without hope, but ignite passion in others to go and do the same.
Amy's story of addiction was featured here on CBN.
Amy Lambert was arrested on December 31, 2016 and charged with driving while impaired. In a new post today on Facebook, she shares thoughts on hitting rock bottom. She does not mention her arrest. I posted a comment asking if she is going to tell her followers, but she deleted it after just a few minutes. She also blocked me on Twitter after one tweet with the link to the news about her arrest.
@kevthoman @watchkeep @wartwatch It's public info. Wouldn't you want to know this before your loved one got in a car with her? I would.— Lora TurQuette (@LoraTurQuette) January 3, 2017
I asked if this is her and tweeted her mugshot and @TheAmyLambert has already blocked me pic.twitter.com/1yCf5EyZpf— Amy Smith (@watchkeep) January 2, 2017
@watchkeep @LoraTurQuette @kevthoman @wartwatch The problem is the Church in America lives in denial over real problems in leadership.— TimInNorthlake (@TimInNorthlake) January 3, 2017
As an evangelist and public figure leading people who are in recovery and fighting addictions, it does not serve them well if she is not being honest with them about her own struggles, and in this case, attempting to hide an arrest. It also concerning if she is not seeking professional help for her struggles and encouraging others to do so as well. Social media posts and scriptures may make people feel connected with her, but that will not suffice when professional intervention is needed.
