How The Rescued Letters Started

Tom and Heather lead a youth Bible study for local high school students. Heather disciples several young women in the group.

Heather becomes a mom to Thomas and steps away from the youth Bible study to focus on motherhood.

Driven by a passion to mentor young women eager for profound biblical insights, Heather begins writing Bible studies to address the limited teen discipleship options available at the time.

After several major medical events, Heather is diagnosed with Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. She launches The Rescued Letters blog with a post about miscarriage and a total of 6 readers. Heather starts sharing her testimony at local events.

Ready catches the attention of a traditional publisher in Nashville, who partners with Heather to publish Determined and eventually Renewed.

The Rescued Letters becomes The Rescued Letters Collective, a nonprofit committed to Biblical literary for all women.
