The HeartStories app brings meaning back to connection.get the app
Only 10 (or less) Girlfriends
The HeartStories app is only for your very closest girlfriends. It’s for the tiny group of women who boost you up and remind you who you really are. They’re the ones you want to share your life with on a more genuine level, but just can’t ever find the time. (HINT: Less is more. Research says most of us 3 or fewer friends we can confide in, but we didn’t want to shock you, so we made room for 10.)
Oh, and no worries if they don’t know each other. They don’t need to. Read on to understand why.
How it works
Each day, we’ll pose a question to spark a quick, yet meaningful conversation between you and your friends.
These questions are designed to take you on a journey with your friends that you probably wouldn’t have taken otherwise. You’ll be amazed by the little things you’ll learn each day and how those little things open up big conversations, deep love and instant support.
By being yourself and being consistent with your friends, you’ll find you are better able to tune out all the noise of the old negative stories. Click here for a story of how something similar worked for our founder.
We use the concept of a dial to show how much love we are hearing in our headphones. A low level means you’re not feeling so good about yourself/your life today. A high level means you’re really feeling good about yourself and your life today.
It’s an easy way to get honest and signal how much love you’re hearing without worrying whether it seems like you’re whining, complaining or even bragging. You’re simply checking in with how you’re really doing.
Feeling like a rockstar? Shout it! Feeling less love than normal, let your girls know. These are your closest friends, they want to share life with you!
After you signal your love level, simply use the space below to reveal the answer to your Spark. Then you’ll instantly see the Reveals of your friends and get a chance to respond to them.
The best part? Those responses are only between the two of you. So there’s no need to try to coordinate a group of friends who already know each other. The HeartStories app fosters individual relationships, leaving newsfeed and commenting distractions for other networks. It’s like the best of group texting, when you send out the message to the group, but the responses only come back to you.
We can’t wait to hear about your conversations the next time you are able to meet face to face!

We really dig the way Brené Brown explains our need to cultivate love. She says,
“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection. Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.”
So, we wrote a little pledge as an intention for the friends you invite to share the HeartStories app with you:
