No one struggles alone

Nothing can take away the struggles we all face, but we don’t have to face them alone.

I’ve lived so many lives in the last 7 years since I discovered Love INC. When I began this part of my life’s journey, I was in an abusive relationship with 3 kids and a few years prior I had lost a child to SIDS. I myself was lost. But I didn’t even know it. I was ignorant to the reality of what I was living in. I have always been someone who loves to learn and grow, and yet, I knew so little about myself. 

I knew nothing about boundaries for myself or others until I took the Boundaries class and ended the abusive relationship I was in. Even still, I had no idea that giving or receiving love looks different to each person or what made me feel loved until I took “How We Love” a second time. 

It’s ok to not be ready. Just don’t give up. We are not built to try to figure life out on our own. Thankfully, we are not on our own. 

The best things I’ve learned and gained through all of these years aren’t things at all, or even life skills—although those are absolutely necessary to have. 

What I’ve found most valuable is the relationships I’ve gained, the connections with facilitators and classmates, with my Navigator, and above all my relationship with my creator and myself… that is what really mattered.  

Nothing can take away the struggles we all face. No one can fix your heart or your life for you. Much like being a believer does not mean living without suffering. What Love INC can do, however, is not leave you to suffer alone.

The people of Love INC are God’s hands and feet, and you can see Jesus In their eyes. You can feel him in their hearts and hugs. They are my village. People say that God does not give you more than you can handle but I think that’s incorrect. What God does is place people in your life that will never leave you, just as he never will. When others believe in us, we believe In ourselves, and we can conquer what seems insurmountable. 

I would not be able to love the way I can now and be loved the way that I am now had I not rebuilt myself and my life with help of the classes I’ve taken, tools I’ve been given, and the people I’ve connected with at Love INC.

There is no greater potential impact than local churches working together to show and share the love of Christ. Love INC is mission-focused on church relationships and outreach mobilization. We are committed to leading the Love INC Movement to listen well to churches and communities and continually discover with them ways to increase church and volunteer engagement.
