Heartspeak is a sisterhood of brokenness,
a safe place where we can share our life stories
and together experience breakthroughs.
Heartspeak was just a blog.
Many hours and days were invested into pouring out my heart and soul into cyberspace, hoping that the angst and joy I felt would be shared by whoever else read my words across their screens. And then, the light bulb moment occurred when I thought to myself how much I longed for a community where I would be able to freely share these same thoughts to actual people without the fear of being judged or looked at differently. I desired to connect, especially with women. I’ve had wounds from women over the years of my life, and it’s still taking a while for me to heal completely. But through the different interactions and relationships I’ve developed with great, wonderful Christian women, I wanted more. I wanted to create this sort of environment for all women, women who would be seeking the same thing, women who desired those similar connections and pursued sisters of good character with qualities to look up to.
Heartspeak then transformed into a community.
The first Heartspeak meeting had several speakers, women who were powerful role models who revealed a vulnerability that wasn’t seen by many before. They shared from their hearts about how their relationship with God changed through their different life stages: singlehood, dating or married, having children… all these stories combined provided a world of opportunities for the 40 women who showed up to relate to the speakers, and to each other. It was a powerful time of uniting in our brokenness to support and love each other.
Heartspeak is an open space for women of all different life stages and backgrounds to come together, to share stories with each other, to connect with each other, and to provide for each other support and resources in various ways. From topics such as heartbreak, sex, relationships, and love, the list can go on and on about the kaleidoscope of subjects women want to dialogue about. The bottom line is, you’re not alone. Let’s face it, women are relational by nature and we are not meant to do this life alone; we need other women in our lives.
Let’s get together and share our lives; the pain, the scars, the shadows that may invade the peace of our hearts, as well as the joys, triumphs, and breakthroughs. Who knows what impact you can have on other women who are experiencing just the same?
