About Awake Our Hearts

I will awaken the dawn…

Awake Our Hearts is an online literary publication celebrating the gift of creativity, faith, God’s goodness and beauty, and the voice of women.

We exist to arouse our hearts to the dawn of faith, beauty, and the examination of life in new perspectives and curiosity. To awake, or reawaken, our hearts, our faith, our creativity, and our lives.

Much of this life goes unnoticed in the blur of rigorous pace and structure. But life is beautiful and glorious and mundane and messy. We want to help you slow down, savor small and significant moments, and allow your heart room to breathe, to break out of a humdrum rhythm and find its true beat again. We are dreamers inhabiting reality. We exist to wake you up through the power of words to live your life to the full in God, get excited for what He has in store for you, and to celebrate and examine His goodness and beauty in the real and hard things of life, too.
