Welcome to our very first issue of Pure in Heart Stories! We are a mother and daughter team who love poetry, stories, art, and Jesus, and we are excited to share with you the wonderful, creative work from writers and artists from around the world.
The name Pure in Heart comes from one of our favorite beatitudes, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” (Matthew 5:8). We love pure hearts, questioning hearts, sad hearts, joyful hearts, and hearts that long to see goodness in the world.
We hope you see these hearts and more in Issue #1!
God bless you,
