Heartstead. Like a homestead but from the heart. A homestead is more than a house, it's a home where family grows and memories are made. The name came from a time when I was doing in-home childcare and looking for additional income and my sister was struggling with the dichotomy of being a mom and working. She deeply desired to be able to be home with her babies while also earning an income. While I have yet to start a family of my own, like my sister, our hearts were most full when we were at home loving on growing children while also pursuing our creative talents. That is when Heartstead was established.
While circumstances have changed, the desire behind Heartstead Cookies has not. My heart is to earn an income and bless others with delicious, unique custom cookies, while having the flexibility to pursue my other big passion in life: loving teenagers and showing them they have hope and a purpose because of Jesus! I am currently a substitute teacher while also very involved in the student ministry at my church. I am grateful for a flexible schedule that enables me to pursue my biggest passions in life and I am thankful for YOU as you play a role in that through your cookie orders!!
