HEART THOUGHTS was a two to four page newsletter I used to put together in my own home once a month for family and friends. It included poetry (by myself and other authors I liked), little quotes and sayings and general encouragement. Usually it was based on a theme for the month, especially if the month included a holiday. It was just a fun, colorful little paper I liked to send out each month that I hoped was enjoyable to read. I love to make people smile, laugh, and feel good as well as give them hope in their lives and hearts through God.
After several years of sending out about 40 of them a month using my own printer, paper, envelopes and stamps I decided I needed a break from it. It could be time consuming and expensive for me and with little toddlers in the home I made the difficult decision to break from it, intending to start it up again one day. I was also hoping to expand it into more of a magazine then just a few pages long. That hasn’t come to pass yet. In the years since I went back to college to work on an English degree and that consumes a majority of my time after caring for my husband and children.
Of course in that time the Internet has become such a major area of our lives that it seemed only natural to start my adventure with Heart Thoughts back up as a blog. So in 2009 I created this blog to pick up where I had left off. Maybe one day I will be editor of a publishing company or a magazine, but for now I’m content to branch out with my writing career through this little blog that I hope encourages you and maybe even gives you some food for thought from time to time.
FROM MY HEART TO YOURS,
