Joining The Healing HEartists couldn’t be easier!

Will you consider joining me in sharing the Joy of healing thru creative art?  Here is my vision for The Healing HEartists★☆★
Saturday, 8/2/2014…If you are not a crafter, I also opened a GoFundMe page to help get THH off the ground.  This will help me purchase paper, envelopes, and POSTAGE for sending out cards.  It also will help in purchasing supplies to create gifts for sale to support the mission.

My vision for The Healing HEartists

I. My Experience..Why trust me?

    a. 13 years experience in papercrafting

    b. 10 years experience leading a team, 3 in papercrafting, 7 at Chick-Fil-A

    c. 17 years of being a parent

    d. 15 COMBINED years of marriage

    e. The loss of both parents to cancer, an infant brother lost to liver disease, and a brother and niece lost to murder-suicide.  I have felt the sting of many losses. I know where you are and have a God-birthed passion to bring hope and healing.  I CARE where you are but am passionate about not leaving you there♡♥♡

II.  My HEart is for healing

    a. God put in my heart a great faith for healing broken hearts. I’ve been there, more times than I care to count. But His strength and great love has birthed in me the prayer of Paul in 2 Cor 1:3-4

      II Corinthians 1:3-4 NKJV

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

   b. Holy Spirit gives us great power gifts and spiritual gifts when we receive Jesus at salvation. These gifts are ALREADY present in you if you have received Christ as your Savior! The only question is: will you surrender YOUR life to be led hy Him? I promise that when you  do, you will have the power of faith, healing and, freedom in your life.  That has been my experience; it can be yours also♡♥♡

III.  How Will I Help You?

  a. For me, healing has come through art …many forms of art. It has allowed me to express things that mere words simply cannot.  There are NO words that can express what you feel after a family murder-suicide! But God…

   b. Shortly after Rob’s  & Kayla’s deaths in 2007, the Lord began birthing this ministry, but everything is in HIS timing, not mine. That was 7 years ago, and I am just now feeling and having faith in the anointing of this ministry.

c. Cardmaking, Faithbooking, and Gift making are some of the tools I utilize to encourage expression of grief and loss due to many circumstances.  I will teach others how to make greeting cards, faithbook pages (scrapbooking with Scriptures), and other small gifts that are stamped and wrapped in the love of Christ.

d. I have also overcome physical pain by focusing my mind on creating a card or gift for someone else. You can’t focus on you and on others in the same moment; card- and gift-making takes the focus off my pain and puts it on others’ needs! Some of my best projects have come from my worst pain; it helps thatbI play worship music while I design. God sees my heart for healing others, and He honors that with pain relief! Trust Him to honor you, also♡♥♡

IV. Why The Healing HEartists need you

  a.  Simply, I’m only 1 person.

  b. There is strength in numbers. God says, “Wherever 2 or more are gathered in My name, there I will also be!”  He also says, ” A cord of 2 or 3 strands is not easily broken.

  c. In the Body of Christ, we are many parts. We each have different gifts, creatively, intellectually, and spiritually.  I need you because of your gifts, those that God gave you when He set you apart for Himself! (1 Cor 12, Jeremiah 1:5)


V.  What If I Don’t Believe in Jesus?

  a.  Honestly, you may not feel comfortable, simply because God will be given glory in all The Healing HEartists seek to do.

  b. We would love for you to join us, even if you are not a believer that God sent His ONLY Son into this world so that WHOEVER would believe in Him should not perish but have  ETERNAL life! (John 3:16)

  c. The Healing HEartists a ministry, a vision born of God, with His love and warmth wrapping all that we do. Please prayerfully consider before joining this ministry. We will honor and serve God with love, grace,honor, integrity, and above all, compassion.♡♥♡

Host a SmileShop FunRaiser today, or a JoyShop tomorrow!!♡♥♡ It’s a win/win!

I am not opposed to traveling to your area to teach, providing I have a slumber party when I arrive♡♥♡  Seriously.. sharing my HEart on grieving and bringing joy is THAT important to me!  God’s goodness and faithfulness has sustained me, and I am EXPECTING it to sustain you also.

Good morning!  My name is Amy Heldebrandt, and I have been a North Port resident since 2008.  I have 14 years of experience in rubber stamp and scrapbook art and would love to teach a class at your facility.

The mission of my company is to share in the grieving process by providing a creative outlet for expressing very personal feelings.  I am not a therapist or grief counselor, but have experienced first-hand the trauma of loss to cancer (both parents) and the tragedy of sudden deaths by suicide.  In my introduction, I share my story of how the Lord used these experiences to grow me to help others! (Romans 8:28)

My workshops, which I call JoyShops, are $5.00/person, with a minimum of $50.00.  This covers my materials and time.  I am a nonprofit, so I only charge what will cover my expenses!

For more information, please visit
Then call me to book your residents’ JoyShop today!

Looking forward to bringing JOY to your community,

Hello, sweet friend♡♥♡

My sweet friend, this has been on my heart for some time. 
I want to offer something to you that truly helped me when I was grieving the loss of my dad and mom in 2000 and 2002, respectively, and my brother and niece in 2007.
You’ve seen the cards I make using rubberstamp art.  I have also tinkered in scrapbooking a bit.  One of the most cathartic things I did after my mom died was to totally redesign their wedding album.  All of the photos were 8 x 10 and B &W, so I chose daisies and a soft yellow and dark green to complement.  But that’s beside the point…
What I did that afternoon at my local scrapbook store allowed me to cry happy memory tears (obviously not mine!) and began a process of healing thru art that has formed The Healing HEartists ministry…bringing that local scrapbook and rubber stamping store to your home♡♥♡
My ultimate dream for this mission is to see the grieving healed of broken hearts, and, because God is faithful to the desires of our hearts, He allowed me to envision art to be a tool toward that end. I would love to hold a workshop with you and some friends & family.

Know that Im praying for you, and hope you will consider the Close to My HEart opportunity.  It has turned my crafting upside down and really changed my focus to sharing the joy with others!  For $99, you get over $400 worth of product to do with what you like, either stamping or scrapbooking, beginning August 1st.  If you choose to, you can build a business with it or simply enjoy a hobby crafter 22% discount.  Join before July 31, and get our NEW Shin Han Touch Twin marker bundles for $72  (1 FREE stamp set) or $143 (3 FREE Sstamp sets)!!!

An addition to the family…

..get your attention?

Here’s what’s happening at The Healing HEartists♡♥♡
Jay and I have added a new business to my Close to My Heart studio.  Many of you know that I am a home health aide and that I love it!  Well, I recently discovered a company called ItWorks!  We now carry a line of nutritional supplements and vitamins that  may bring a healthy lifestyle into my patients’ lives.  The Greens (and Greens on the Go) has anti-inflammatory properties, and almost all pain has inflammation at its root.

Many of you also know that I recently discovered I have fibromyalgia and am dealing everyday almost with joint pain, probably Rheumatoid Arthritis, though undiagnosed.  I truly believe in ItWorks! THE GREENS as a source of pain’s a botanical, superfruits and veggies based product that I can easily add to a bottle of water on my way to a client♡♥♡





More tomorrow on ItWorks! other great health and wellness products♡♥♡  You can also add THE GREENS to fresh fruits to make a delicious breakfast♡♥♡

I was locked out…

It’s been a while since my last post, huh?  I got locked out of my paid blog:(  Since I am now back in business, I want to share with you how God is working in our lives.

My husband, Jay, will begin Roadmasters truck driving school on Mon., June 23.  After the 3 -week program, his training begins over the road, leaving me, the kids,and the dog for about 3 weeks out of the month.  Our family income will triple, leaving abundant resources to pay bills and to support The Healing HEartists♡♥  I am also going to turn back to the original plan God had for it: providing encouragement and joy to families needing a touch of Christ’s love after the loss of a loved one.

The joy I feel for papercrafting comes from pure creativity and the desire to serve my Lord by encouraging others!  If you would like to see a particular type of card, please post a note!  Designing new samples is my joy! ♡♥♡


Update:  Jay graduates on Friday!! I am so proud of him for stepping out of his comfort zone to provide for our family♡♥♡
