{Candid Round Up} What’s Love Got to Do With It?

How do you define love? We’ve gathered the top blog posts on love from today’s Christian women
and we want to share them with you in this candid round up.

One of my favorite quotes about how to define love, actually comes from The Notebook. Nicolas Sparks wrote, “The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.” That’s the kind of love Jesus brings out in us. Loving Him awakens parts of our soul we didn’t even know were there. It fills the empty spots and makes us want to reach for more. It plans a fire in our hearts and gives us a peace that surpasses all understanding. It’s unshakable, unchangeable, and unending.

I doubt Mr. Sparks was thinking about Jesus when he penned those words, but every time I read them, they send my thoughts running to Jesus. I have shared some more quotes on love below, but first, I wanted to share some blog posts about love. Love is huge. There are so many different kinds of love, different ways to define it. Romantic love, agape love, brotherly love, love of things, love of people, love of words, the list could go on and on. Below, you’ll find posts that look at love from all different angles, each written by a different author.
