Will you let yourself be loved?
Did you know that letting yourself be loved takes faith?
Today I invite you into a conversation with my amazing friends, Holley Gerth, a speaker, bestselling author and counselor, and Jennifer Watson, a popular blogger, speaker, and youth pastor. Our topic on this More Than Just Words live broadcast was “Letting Yourself Be Loved.”
I’m excited to share it with you.
We are in a month that will talk about nothing but love, but let’s get real. Love can feel tricky. Complicated. Love isn’t just romantic love. It’s love of family. It’s love of God. It’s love of self.
God loves me, right where I am. I can allow him full access to my heart and life. https://ctt.ec/ldvBw+ #livefree
This isn’t a rehearsed conversation, but three friends trying to sort through faith and love. We are talking about why that feels amazing and yet so hard at times.
Take a listen, and then let’s take this deeper together.
