We’ve got H E A R T:

|| Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and He shall direct your paths – Proverbs 5:3 ||


Here at Heart of the Matter, we like to get down to (yep, you guessed it) the very heart of the matter.

Cliche? Slightly.

But what’s the message?

Trust the Lord with your whole¬†heart and lean on His goodness to guide and direct you through life. Adulthood isn’t easy, and we certainly aren’t capable of doing it on our own. We must place every ounce of our lives—-our worries, our plans, our needs—–in the Master’s all-knowing hands, as Proverbs 3:5 encourages. I pray that we never lose sight of this verse but instead cherish it with reverence and care . . . living it out, each and every day.

And that’s how Heart of the Matter got its name.


With Love,

I’m Delaney Johnston, a twenty-year-old writer and photographer. My passions include traveling, writing, and photography. When found not doing either of the above, I will more than likely be watching a 1940’s motion picture, thrift-shopping, or doing something Christmas-related. I like to explore new places, try new things, and meet new people (even though I’m an undeniable introvert). Coffee shops and libraries are my hangs, and I love antiques, old films, and dusty books. I’m perpetually in awe of the goodness of my Savior and seek to glorify Him using this platform. Here, I aspire to be your virtual best friend, talking about topics that matter to people who matter . . . from my heart to yours.

With love,
