valentines womans heartWhether you're single or married, Valentine's Day can stir up some emotions that make us wish the holiday would just fall off the calendar. There's only one place that's ever been big enough to lose my gnawing loneliness, wash away my aching wounds, or just simply get lost in, and that is in Christ. If something (a holiday, a person, an experience, or whatever) burdens us deeply or even threatens to define us, we are in need of a fresh bout of basking in His love.

Here's a collection of articles and free printables that will hopefully be a blessing to you this holiday season as you center your heart in Christ's love.


The Price of Your Heart Everyone has one. It’s price tag that hangs around the doorknob that opens the hallways of your heart. For some, that price tag is high and trust is given sparingly. For others, the door swings open on its hinges welcoming all into the warmth of intimacy...  

His Love Over You Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul. Psalm 143:8 Because sometimes we really need to hear the Lord's lovingkindness over us...  


Love letter from the Lord to you Download includes one for you and one to share!

How God Sees You Cards Pretty little Bible verse cards to remind you how God sees you and how much you are loved, noticed and cherished by your Father in heaven.

Valentine place card set In past years I have loved throwing tea parties at Valentine's for my single friends (and as I've been married even some of us married gals could use some reminding about how much God loves us!) These place cards will give you a head start!

For more Bible related encouragement to center your identity in Christ's love, look into the Bible study: My Reflection in His Eyes - Seeing Yourself as God Sees You or the new devotional Daily His Delight: Living in the Light of God's Love.
