Visit this page anytime and let me know if you’d like to add to the words describing Jesus’ love along with a verse supporting it. Remember, there is also a print-out of the original list.
This month I have added another “G” Word:
❤︎ Giving Love ❤︎
“That is what the Son of Man has done:
He came to serve, not to be served —
and then to give away His life in exchange
for many who are held hostage.”
Mark 10:45 The Message
I am not always able to keep up with the abundance of books that promote hope, healing, and freedom, so I haven’t always read every one I post here and on the Books Page. Though many are on my long wish list. 🙂 Many will be from recommendations of online friends. If you ever know of a book that is not listed and that supports this website’s mission, please let me know. 🙂
66 Ways God Loves You by Jennifer Rothschild
(I love how Jennifer portrays every book of the Bible as a continuing love letter from God. I found so much hope in this book. I read it as a devotional, focusing on one way each day.)
“God’s Word is many things—instructive, historical, poetic. Yet to Jennifer Rothschild, the Bible is also an incredible love letter. In 66 Ways God Loves You, she walks you through each of the sixty-six books of the Bible and shows, in concise and thoughtful ways, how every book reflects God’s love for each of us, such as:
- In Genesis God fashions me with His hands.
- In Esther He makes me royalty.
- In Acts God’s Spirit comes to live in me.
- In I Peter God gives me victory over suffering.
Each chapter includes a short, meaningful reading on the message of that book in the Bible, along with a simple takeaway to help apply the message to your own life.
Whether you are a new believer, struggling with doubt, questioning your self-worth, or just looking to celebrate God’s unwavering love for you, join Jennifer as she opens the Word in fresh, beautiful ways to show you how God’s love is the common thread that runs through every single page.”
Here is an inspiring, hope-filled 5-minute video of Jennifer’s Story.
She lost her independence when she lost her sight,
but she gained a deeper dependence on God.

💞 What You Believe Matters by Dr. Michelle Bengston – “When the way is unclear, when the road is rocky and painful, when my heart feels shattered, I have to remind myself of what I believe, what I know to be true.” – Michelle shares several hope-filled verses for when we feel broken and battered in life’s storms.
💞 Do the Next Thing by Vaneetha Rendall Risner – Are you feeling exhausted and overwhelmed? “I had to do the next thing in the strength that God provided. And trust he would supply what I needed. While the future looked dim and unknown, I knew that everything was under his loving sovereign control. I had to take God’s hand in the dark, trust he would guide me and then act on the information I had in front of me.”
💞 Searching for Signficance – This 7-day devotional by Wycliffe Bible Translators dives into God’s view of our worth. Each day explores a different part of God’s perfect plan for our lives, how nothing can satisfy our longings for significance and worth besides Jesus, and how He ultimately wants us to find purpose and significance through bringing Him glory.
” While I know myself as a creation of God,
I am also obligated to realize and remember
that everyone else and everything else
are also God’s creation.”
