Ten Years Later!
Paul's creativity, graphics ability, dreaming, sacrifices, and programming talent have played huge roles in Heartlight's growth and success.

Ten years.

That's a lot of time.

That's a lot of articles, a lot of images, a lot of code, and a lot of late night hours.

Heartlight turned 10 years old on Monday — April 3, 2006. I had no idea what I was getting into when we started 10 years ago. Good times and bad times. Getting hacked — several times. Operating on the razor thin edge of finances. A tremendous conference with hundreds of people in attendance. Long nights alone working.

Since we started Heartlight, I've moved from Texas to Virginia and back. Twice. We added 3 children to our family. We've been fully funded and we've been barely scraping by. We’ve experienced the dotcom boom, and felt the pain of the dotcom bust.

We are working on something larger than ourselves.
What's kept us going is the conviction that we are working on something larger than ourselves. Something God-sized. Bigger than our egos, bigger than our ignorance, bigger than our fatigue, bigger than our financial limitations. That's an exhilarating place to be — right in the middle of God moving.

So when our tiny little site started growing and people from all over the world started reading, it fed our conviction and we kept going. When we started counting page views in the millions, when tens of thousands of you signed up to read our emails, we knew God was using Heartlight in a big way.

I pray that continues. May He continue to include us in His plans. May we continue to be willing to be used.

And for you, may you find yourself in the middle of a God movement, and may you find the freedom of simply riding with Him as He sweeps something new into existence.
