~Welcome to The Heart Knows ~
Hand stamped creations specializing in memorial designs for those lost to abortion
The Lord inspired me to start this ministry after much searching for personalized jewelry in memory of children lost to abortion with no success. I ran across many online stores offering memorial pieces for other types of loss, but never specifically abortion. I was searching for a piece that could be personalized with the name of my own son, Isaiah Nathaniel that I regretfully aborted in 1997. After living in pain and denial for nearly 12 years, in 2009 the Lord took me on a healing journey and I began a recovery Bible study where I was set FREE from the guilt and shame of my abortion decision. As part of healing, a post-abortive individual may seek the Lord for our child's name realizing this is part of giving them dignity and recognizing their life as one of value. By the end of recovery class we have released our guilt/shame and truly given our child over to the Lord. At that time we may desire to have a tangible symbol of our child we never got to hold, but know we will see in Heaven when we arrive one day.
When The Heart Knows began I thought it would consist simply of personalized designs for lives lost to abortion, but after I began hand stamping the memorial pendants I had requests coming in for necklaces in memory of babies lost to miscarriage as well. Of course I embraced this idea as well as other designs to show a committment to stand for LIFE. These may also include supporting other ministries that do the same, such as DQK, Refuge of Light and The Life Ballet. As I began to seek the Lord on what all He wanted me to included, He also gave me a vision for a line of purity designs for teens called Stand True. There is only 1 piece so far, but more to follow soon!
I am so excited to see what the Lord creates and I am so thankful for the people/friends I have met already through this ministry! Read more about the memorial designs here.
