Hello friends, my sisterhood! I’m back and ready to roll…it’s been quite busy for me lately but in a blessed way, not a burdened way. I’ve been working and growing things, praying over many things. One of which is the new direction of HOPE FOR HER HEART! So many new, fresh, exciting things to share with you!
Let’s start from the beginning of why I created this ministry. Hebrews 6:19 says, “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil.” Hope is what keeps us anchored, your soul is sacred and special to the Lord and He wants to protect it, but as it is anchored it’s stronger as well. Not only is His hope that He gives steadfast, His love is steadfast, as well as unconditional and eternal. The Lord, the God of the universe, the Creator of everything, the Almighty wants to have an intimate relationship with YOU! Why? Because not only is He Almighty God, He is YOUR DADDY!
Hope for Her Heart, is just exactly what it means. Simple truths that give hope to women and girls everywhere. Whose heart is being sustained by hope? Who is SHE?
She is the insecure teenager girl, who’s shy and insecure about her beauty and her potential. She is the rebellious girl who likes to push the limits and bend the rules but really seeks some type of structure and consistency. There are young girls at middle and high school age that are in the midst of trying to find their identity, finding out who they are supposed to be but most importantly who God created them to be. She needs motivation for the dreams of the future of a college and career young woman. She is the single mom, the stay at home mom, the working mom, the lonely widow or divorcee struggling to find courage to love again, the pastor’s wife, the single woman waiting for her prince to come, the young college girl, the career woman. She is the Christian church girl, who’s always been marked as a “goody goodie” her whole life and has trouble having grace upon herself but pours grace on others. Hope: something for every woman at every stage in their life. Encouragement for the struggling single mom trying balance things and make ends meet. Comfort for the lonely and brokenhearted widow or divorcee. Peace and advice for the busy mom of a toddler or teenager. Every woman has worth, and needs encouragement, for SHE is a princess, a daughter of the King. This is HOPE FOR HER HEART.
For every woman, of every walk of life whether she is strengthening her faith and walk with Christ, or a seeker eager to learn more about this love of Jesus that has captured her soul. To grow this simple blogging ministry into a non-profit organization: a network of women’s ministries and charities, places where women and girls can volunteer together to serve and impact the lives of other women and girls.
