Hello Friend! I hope you are doing well today. I just want to share some encouragement with you. (plus a special invitation!) 

"As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Now remain in my love." John 15:9

This is Jesus speaking to his disciples, but He is also speaking to you. Jesus poured out His life to show His love for you. You are incredibly, deeply loved. Can you take a moment to pause and just let that soak in?

It doesn't matter where you have been, what you have done, or what people have labeled you as. When you accept Jesus as your Lord and savior, you are COVERED. Covered in love, covered in grace and covered in favor. 

Your life has a purpose. You were chosen to live in this time and place.

"Jesus didn't tell us to become religious. He told us to be like him, and He was love... Love isn't something we do, like a job. It's someone we become, like Jesus." - Bob Goff, Live in Grace Walk In Love Study.

As we grow in love and in relationship with the Lord, his image imprints on our heart and begins to transform us. Are you ready for a transformation? Are you ready to see new growth in your life and discover new peace?


This is what Jesus invites us to do. To remain in His love we need to spend time in His presence. 

I am so excited to invite you on a 46 day journey this Lent season as we follow in the footsteps of Jesus. We have done this study for the last three years, and it has been AMAZING! Last year I'll admit I faltered on the reading plan because I had a baby during lent last year, but this year I am R E A D Y!

Will you join me as we prepare our hearts for Easter?

Here is the deal, we will read the 4 gospels in 46 days. It works out to about 3 short chapters a day, and you get to take a break on Sunday (or catch up with you are behind). Lent begins on February 26th. 

Maybe you don't celebrate lent, and that is ok. My question is, why not... why not prepare our hearts for Easter by re-reading the most amazing love story in history? I hope you will join us! It's going to be amazing.
