Flourishing Heart is a ministry desiring to speak into the lives of those who feel lost, hurt and broken. Flourishing Heart aims to bring restoration to your dreams, identity, purpose, health and wellbeing so you’re able to live out the call of God on your life and live the way you were designed to live.
The first issue of the Flourishing Heart Magazine – WILLOW – was just recently launched and is a health and lifestyle magazine for women. Targeted particularly towards teenagers and young adults, this magazine was designed to bring value, worth and dignity to women. We live in a culture and society where unrealistic expectations are placed on looks and body image. I believe this has a huge impact on mental health, suicide and general well-being. The magazine aims to speak into those areas and bring hope and truth to young women.
Dream Shop is a series of workshops created to help people restore and uncover their God-given dreams and purpose. We were all created for a purpose and I strongly believe that the Lord placed those dreams inside our very DNA right from the moment of our conception. Some of us may have had dreams growing up but they were buried along the way, and others have never had the tools to uncover what their purpose is. Dream Shop aims to bring restoration to those dreams.
