Will You Be Mine?

Will You Be Mine?

We all long to be wanted.

As a child, Valentine's Day was an equal opportunity holiday. At school, we'd decorate old shoe boxes to serve as mail boxes, and those would become the portals by which every classmate would drop colorful die-cut cards and candy for each other. No one was singled out; not one was overlooked.

Once you get out of elementary school, everything changes. Valentine's Day is rife with expectation and heartbreak. You hope and pray a certain someone gives you a special card or gift, or asks you on a date. Will you be mine? isn't just a phrase we look for on candy hearts; it's what our heart and soul longs to hear.

In this issue, we're taking a closer look at this longing. Heidi L. Larson shares how she found the ultimate solution to her deepest yearning to be special—even in the midst of her friends, neighbors, mothers, and even grandmothers receiving attention and gifts from their special someones.

Dr. Juli Slattery, co-founder of Authentic Intimacy, and a regular contributor for Today's Christian Woman, writes about how to find joy in your marriage when loneliness threatens to sabotage it.

And for a little levity, Margot Starbuck shares a funny story about the danger of pantomiming the words "I love you."

Whatever your relationship status, we hope you find help and hope as you learn what it means to be fully loved by God.

In Him,

Im learning to be thankful for the kindness shown to me. I couldve been alone my whole life. Instead mourning i am being truly grateful during my season of loss, and blessing God for what i do have. Only God can supply you deepest needs.
