My Heart for You…

My Heart for You…

I started HartDesignCo in late 2017 with just a few hand lettered wooden signs and some high hopes that they might just sell. Fast forward 5 years and my dreams for this company have grown and expanded far beyond anything I imagined just a few short years ago. While I truly believe “Home is where the Heart is”….HartDesignCo is about more than just the home….it’s about the everyday woman and all that our lives encompass….

Can I get a little vulnerable here?…

I vividly remember the year 2006. I was a senior in college (mind you, a Christian college that joked “three swings and and a ring” if you dared sitting with your significant other on one of the iconic white swings on the front lawn). I had dated several guys throughout my college career, but none of them ended in a proposal like I had always hoped. My senior year, I remember listening to one of my professors speak at a women’s retreat and say something along the lines of “not all of you will get married.” Wait, what? I think I knew in that moment that marriage may not be in the cards for me, but I was still crushed with the weight of society’s pressure and my own longing. After all, I had only 2 months until graduation with no potential husband in sight…

Fast forward to 2022,

…what a grace of the Lord that He has cultivated in my heart a longing for Him that more than satisfies any other dream my heart could conjure. While I am open to marriage should the Lord provide the right man, I am also completely content in singleness and the life He has already so lavishly provided. I’ve dated some great and not so great guys, and have been heartbroken more times than I care to admit. Through it all, the Lord has taught me that He alone satisfies like no other.

So that brings me to this question…

Should our “unmet expectations” and life detours dissuade us from living our lives FULL OUT? {spoiler alert: the answer is NO!}

Regardless of our demographic or our life “stage”, we are created to “set about our work vigorously” (Proverbs 31:17) and “rejoice in the Lord always” (Philippians 4:4). Amen? Praise God that this calling SHOULD and DOES look different for each woman. We are not all called to be a stay at home mom and homeschool our children. We are not all called to work in corporate America. We are not all called to look the same….

We are not called to look and be the women our culture says we should be.
