Hello there! Grab your party hat and noise maker. I hope you don't mind some confetti in your hair! It's time to celebrate!
She Heard is turning 6 today! Can you believe it? WOW!
I hope this site has been half of the blessing to you that it has been to me. What a transformation my life has seen over the past half-a-dozen years.
When I began writing here I was a mom of 6 kids aged 7 to newborn. I was a work-at-home, homeschooling mom struggling to make it through each day. I was depleted and tired and unsure how to be the same Mandy in every situation. I was "home" Mandy and "church" Mandy and "Facebook" Mandy and "friend" Mandy, but I didn't know how to make the four into one. I wanted to do MORE and make a difference in the world, but I was drowning in diapers and late-night feedings and just didn't see how I could do anything beyond make it through each day.
God called me to start blogging about my faith publicly and the first night I hit enter on a post detailing my Scriptire reading for the week, I couldn't sleep. I was terrified of the response. Having been a certain person to some and a different person to others, I was sure the backlash would kill me. But guess what? It didn't!
Sure, I lost some friends (who were friends only through social media anyway), but the ones who stayed cheered me on. God also walked with me every step of the way. He's grown me and stretched me and led me to some incredible people through this small corner of the universe called She Heard!
If you're reading this, YOU are one of those incredible people!
Many times I've been told that what's posted on the Facebook page is exactly what someone needed at that time. That brings me great joy! The truth is, what I post is what I need to hear as well. I have hit some dark lows and some amazing highs over the past 6 years, but God has always met me in those places. The beautiful thing about Him is that He also meets others through what we're experiencing. Anything that I've posted that's met a need in you has been directly from the Lord. Isn't He so good??
We are about to hit 10,000 in our community on Facebook. This is a huge milestone and I'm so very excited to have you along for the ride. I have some fun things planned for when we hit that number. I can't wait to share them with you!
THANK YOU for joining me here! You are a true blessing to me.
Here's to many more years of growing in love and faith with Jesus...
