Minister Shawn Lawrimore discusses road of rejection, the role it plays in our lives building insecurities, fostering the idea of no and facing it head on. Guest writer, Wendy Freeman pens this week’s devotional message, “Wake Up My Love”.
At what age do you learn self-love? Is it when your parents tell you how cute you are? How about when family members tell you who you resemble, and who has what feature? Did you learn what self-love was inside of your home at all? Growing up in a Christian family, did you learn what self-love was based on what the bible said?
