The Bright Future of HPM: Creating a Peaceful World


Photo by Ivette Ivens

I am thrilled to announce that after many weeks of searching, discussing, pondering, and reflecting, I have found an amazing team to continue publishing HPM, headed by our new Editor-in-Chief, L.R. Knost!



International best-selling, award-winning author and speaker, L.R. Knost is an independent child development researcher, founder, and director of the advocacy and consulting group, Little Hearts/Gentle Parenting Resources. She is also a babywearing, breastfeeding, cosleeping, homeschooling mother of six. Her children are a 26-year-old married father of two; a 24-year-old married Family Therapist working with at-risk children and families; a 19-year-old university pre-med student on scholarship; 15 and 8-year-old sweet, funny, socially active, homeschooled girls; and an adorable and active toddler.

Her year-long fight with a rare form of neuroendocrine cancer has not stopped her creative juices from flowing; this warrior mama is about to publish another book (look for it in 2017!) as well as mentoring thousands, alongside parenting her kids.


Her quotes are widely known, loved, and shared.

Here are a few created by HPM: 






Two of L.R.'s articles have featured in HPM and inspired thousands. You can read them here and here

I have been personally inspired by this amazing woman since I first came across her writings several years ago. To have her adopt my beloved magazine and continue to nurture and inspire our readers and fans is a dream come true!   I am confident L.R. and her team will take HPM to new hights. 

Please be patient with us as we navigate this time of transition. I promise it will be worth the wait!

I am humbled by leading the HPM community, sharing, and learning alongside all of you over the last three years. I am deeply grateful for your kindness, solidarity, and support!

Wishing everyone a joyous holiday season! Here's to new beginnings in 2017!
