My Story

Sondra Liburd-Jordan








So I am a writer, an inspirational writer who, like the athlete, the concert pianist, the master painter – has this inexplicable need to reach and move an audience. I am about uplifting. And I’ve been at it a long time.

My focus is what’s traditionally known as “greeting cards”. Most have never quite worked for me. Didn’t like the words and could do without all the frill and fru-fru often on the covers. For me, they just didn’t do their job. After ending a lengthy journalism career and later putzing around in unfulfilling work, I created Hurdlecards – a consortium of sentiments that cover life events – relationships, work, our thoughts, our words, our engagement with uncertainties, better known as risks. I like the idea of incorporating thought pieces with various elements and textures. Hence I paint on brass, copper, wood and other metals to first incite the eye and then, hopefully, capture the mind. I call them wordgifts.  Motivation minus the sermon – laughter whenever possible, pretty much sums me up. Over the years I’ve collected, re-written and composed hundreds of affirmations that cover the gamut.  I have found my passion.

                Here’s to Hurdlecards – words, thoughts, gifts for a richer life.

  1. Dear Sondra, I met you a couple weeks ago at the Strawberry Festival in Sandy Spring and I was so inspired by your work that I purchased a framed card as a gift to myself as I was going to be Baptized the next day in which I was. I placed your framed Art on my cake table and my friend was so touched by it that she said she has to have one! I am searching your website for just the right message for my friend. I’m positive that I will find it here. Thanks and many blessings, BTW, the message I purchased said, “I did not change, I just found myself”. Suggestion, maybe you could make one that says, “I did not change, I just found Jesus”.
