About Me

My Simple Bio...

I have always loved to write.  It started in my elementary days when my teacher did a unit on poetry.  I loved the idea of translating my feelings to words and poems and paragraphs.  I have informally been writing my entire life, so several years ago I decided to start a blog.  My blog started out as a way to share my passion for hospitality, but when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, twice in the same year, my writing turned to deeper matters of life and death, beauty, and fear. I quickly learned that sharing my heart with others led to a sacred place of connection and community.  I also learned that everyone is in the midst of their own personal struggle and that we are never alone.  Finally, a way to merge two of my greatest loves – relationships and writing.SaveSave

Aside from writing, I spend my days with friends and family.  I am a true extrovert and feel most alive when I’m with people.  I am a self-described foodie and love to cook.  I can often be found walking my dog Cinco, exercising at my boxing gym or having a glass of wine with my friends.  My heart is always full when my house is full.  There is nothing better to me than the sound of people playing and laughing and enjoying life together.  I also love to read and listen to podcasts.  And when I’m feeling down, it is always music that speaks to my soul.

I have been fortunate to move around and experience different people and cultures and climates.  I was born in Kansas (my father did a stint in the airforce) and moved to California at 6 months old.  I lived in California until I was 21 years old, and moved to Washington, DC after college to work for the US Department of Justice.  At the Department of Justice I had the honor of working to end violence against women, which continues to be one of my greatest passions.   Since I had spent time on both coasts I decided to move inland a bit and spent a short time in Nashville, followed by 12 years in Indianapolis. I even had the privilege of living in Brussels, Belgium for a year and a half and was able to travel and take in the beauty of Europe. I now enjoy calling Charlotte, NC home and have come to appreciate the mild Southern winters.   While moving around has not always been easy, I now have dear friends all over the world, on every continent except Antartica.

But without a doubt, my greatest accomplishments are being a mom to my sweet children, Madison and Marc Jr.  They have been my anchor through moving and cancer and loss and grief.  They are what motivates me to grow and change and do all I can to make this world a better place.  And because of my faith in a servant named Jesus, I strive each day to follow His example of unconditional, inclusive, forgiving, grace-filled, extravagant, boundless love.  And although I often fail miserably, I wake up each day, put one foot in front of the other, and keep moving forward.

Cheers!

      Y’all, the last 24 hours have been rough!  I always say that my life is pretty much an open book, but every so often there is a secret that I tuck away in a dark lonely place for fear that if it comes to light I won’t have the strength to bear it. When […]

  • Lessons from the Mountain Top: Perseverance, Courage, Faith and Clarity
    by Heather Bergman Moss on November 14, 2017 at 2:16 pm

    This past Friday we had the day off school so we packed our bags and joined some friends for a night away in the mountains. I needed to get away. The heaviness of life’s challenges was starting to overwhelm me and my soul was screaming for a mountain top experience. The city air felt thick […]

  • When Will It Be The Last Time?
    by Heather Bergman Moss on September 28, 2017 at 5:05 pm

    Last week I traveled to Indianapolis with my two kiddos. We were surprising my father for his 70th birthday and meeting my nephew Asher for the first time. It was a wonderful trip full of quality time with friends and family, and lots of cuddles with sweet Asher. One afternoon as I relaxed on the […]

  • Turning Worries into Praises

    Do you ever have those moments of being completely overwhelmed and paralyzed by life? Those moments where you are struggling to catch your breath because you feel as if you have a 20-pound weight smack dab in the middle of your chest? Those moments where you look at your life and all the pain and […]

  • Just Show Up!: The 4 Keys to Living in Authentic Community
    by Heather Bergman Moss on September 15, 2017 at 5:03 pm

    I have spent a great deal of time thinking about the concept of community. The dictionary defines it this way: 1) A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. 2) A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. I […]
