004_You are Loved!

Sometimes in life we can battle with the idea or temptation that we are not good enough, and that we are defined by our sin. We often fail to believe that God could still forgive and love us when we have sinned. In this episode we explore God's radical love for you and how we are called to see ourselves and everyone we encounter as a GIFT! You are loved beyond measure. God loves you infinitely, perfectly and unconditionally!

Challenge for the Week: 

Simon - Stand in front of the mirror and thank God for how beautifully he made you!

Maddie - Let love, love you! - Do a Eucharistic Holy Hour. Ponder the Crucifixion.
