Welcome back, Bible study friends!
As we head into the new year, I have a question for you. Reflecting on 2017, can you say this was true of you:
(Your name) loved God with all her heart and knew God loved her just the same.
Before answering, let’s look at the Googled definitions of the two emphasized words:
All — the whole quantity or extent of; the entire, with no part left out.
Knew — aware of through observation, inquiry, or information; absolutely certain.
Now let me ask again, re-reading that sentence with those definitions inserted, is it true for you? Go ahead and check ...
Do you linger on “no part left out” and/or “absolutely certain,” but want to be able to definitely declare this true for you in 2018? I do! And if you’re shouting, “Me, too!” I’m glad you’re here because this is what we’ll be focusing on in Wendy Blight’s I Am Loved Bible study!
Wendy is hands down one of my all-time favorite authors. You’re going to LOVE her AND this study! To help you get to know her, here’s a little video from her and our study hostess, Kendra Schwarz (you’re going to love her, too).

See, didn’t I tell you? Definitely two beautiful people, shining brightly with God’s love. And, while we’re in the spirit of introductions, here’s a bit about me.
I’ll be joining you from Washington, where I live with my best friend and husband of seventeen and a half years, our almost nine-year-old daughter, three small dogs and three backyard goats. This gal is also a homeschool mama and excited to be a foster family very soon. And another thing I LOVE? Finding old things and making them new! There’s something about the process that connects me with God in a special way.
And now, I can’t wait for you to meet your second study leader. She’s someone I’ve had the honor to get to know and serve closely with for the past two years, and whom I know you’re going to be equally blessed by!
Thanks, Katrina, and hey, y’all! I’m Stacy Lowe and I’ll be joining in from Virginia Beach, Virginia, where I share space with a ball of black and white fur who thinks she runs the place, aka my Facebook-famous kitty, Maggie Mae. My day job is sign language interpreting, but after hours, I love to get out with my camera and photograph this beautiful world God made. Sunsets are my favorite! Seeing those brilliant colors splashed across the evening sky never fails to leave me in awe and wonder at a God who could create such a sight.
And guess what — that very same God who cares enough to mix each of those hues to perfection cares even more for you and for me. In fact, He doesn’t just care for us — He loves us. DEEPLY.
I’m so excited to kick off 2018 with you by learning just what that love is all about and what it means for my life and yours!
Say it with me, y’all — We. are. LOVED!
Your turn! Now that you know a little about us, we invite you to introduce yourself, too! And we’d love to know: Where do you feel you’re at when it comes to loving God with ALL your heart and KNOWING He loves you just the same?
