God’s Love

When I was in middle school, my Youth Group did a costume party. I was a shy kid, but for me the idea of being dressed as someone I wasn’t gave me a sense of security and confidence. After days of searching, I found my costume. I would be going as SHAGGY from Scooby-Doo. I [...]


Easter I can’t believe Easter is here already. Easter…growing up, when I heard that word, my mind would immediately think about wonderful baskets filled with sweet goodies; Peeps, Hershey Kisses, Reese’s and all the good stuff! I would think about the thrilling scavenger hunts we would do with my family, decorating eggs, and of course, [...]


God Thinks About Me?

When you grow up in the church, like I did, you become familiar with the wonderful stories of the bible. But there was one huge thing that I overlooked for years…and when it finally stuck, it changed my life forever: God thinks about me…not only that; God deeply loves and wants a relationship with ME.

Hello everyone. Welcome to the start of a series I am calling “God’s Love is _____”. The topic of God’s love is one that is very close to my heart. I am in no way an expert on the topic, I am just someone who has experienced it first hand. Over the course of the [...]


Today during church, the whole message was about God’s love. That topic always hits me really deep inside, because I sense that that is the theme for my life right now. So I find the following quote, from an unknown person to me, quite fitting. I hope you take time and let it seep in. [...]


What does love look like?….A question so many people have often pondered. Some say it is romance. Some say it is bliss. It is one of those words in our English language that have so many meanings to choose from. Dictionary.com defines it as: A profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person A feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend Though those definitions are nice…I can’t [...]
