Looking for love in all the wrong places

What a woman! Instead of blaming God for what she didn't have, Leah praised God for what she did have: four healthy children and the Lord's unfailing favor. As Augustine wrote, "God loves each of us as if there were only one of us to love."

Loved At Last

My lost decade of looking for love ended when I found a heavenly bridegroom named Jesus. I soon discovered I had a world full of sisters, all of them beautiful. That includes you, sis! On those days when your mirror disappoints you, the men in your life don't affirm you, the children you have—or don't have—leave you feeling less than adequate as a woman, know that the Lord sees your brokenness, hears your cry for help, and can fill all the empty places with a boundless love that never ends.
