Welcome to Matters of The Heart! The purpose of this website is to have a positive forum for us to share our thoughts, our struggles and our humorous experiences and to help one another through the days, weeks and months ahead. Life has many challenges and storms but I believe that in order to survive we must remain positive and encourage one another.
I will be updating the site regularly, sharing my experiences and thoughts about God, life, relationships, parenting, health and current affairs so be sure to keep stopping by. I want to hear from you so please leave your comments and make use of the Ask Andrea page where I will personally respond to all your questions.
Remain Blessed,
Andrea.
