Hi and welcome! My name is Emeteria and I am the owner and creator of Heartening Forward. Back in 2017, Heartening Forward was just an idea that had come to me as I dreamed of ways to encourage and uplift others.

In 2020, I went from being a full-time working mom of 4 to becoming unemployed (like so many) and a stay-at-home mom of 5 during the global pandemic. Initially, I began blogging about multiple topics and transitioned to creating hand-crafted cards out of a desire to encourage and uplift others.

My hope is that the cards I create will play a part in spreading joy and love to those you know and love!

“Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.”

2 Corinthians 13:11

(NIV, New International Version)
