Heather is a wife, mother and a business owner. She started a publishing company 10 years ago in the wedding industry and was able to create a wedding magazine. The magazine grew and grew and grew. We then launched a city magazine in Saint Augustine and grew into children’s books and now the Hope Planner.
Once Heather’s son was born she began to think, “what is so purposeful that I am doing with my days and not being with my son? I created a company and I am not supposed to be chained to a desk and I feel like I am.”
She continues with her story, “I feel like I need Jesus in my life. I was not a practicing Christian at that time. I never read my bible. I didn’t know how to or even that I should. I knew I needed to reevaluate my priorities. So, I created a to-do list for myself.”
Eventually, I redesigned my to-do list and realized I needed to switch to a daily to-do list and remind myself to actually read the bible.
These lists help Heather remember what she needs to do each day. She originally created it to be God first, family second, and career third. She used this planner to create a point of habit in her life.
“Because of this daily to do list, my faith had changed completely! It was what I read and what I chose to believe, not what someone else told me to believe.”
It is designed to be a devotion and a daily to-do list.

How is Heather living with abundance?
The less I have the more I feel as though I am living with abundance.
I think my faith and creating a really personal relationship with my Creator has really allowed me to feel and see the abundance in my life. My faith helped me understand life wasn’t about worldly things but about eternal things. It really helped me find life giving things to find abundance in.
The Live Abundantly Podcast does not specifically have a verse to go along with it; however, the Lord has really been putting this verse on Jacquelene’s heart for the podcast.
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. – NIV
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. – ESV
What is next for Heather?
I feel very content with where we are now, but I see us continuing to grow and growing in our company with children’s books as well as expanding the Hope Planner!
