What does it mean to be a Christian? The 3 things needed to love God well, and 3 impacts on your daily life // Episode 3

Hey friend! Today we are digging into what it means to love God well and why that is meaningful in our everyday lives.

Do you feel close with God? How is your spiritual growth? For most of us, we’ve hit a season where the Bible was confusing, our prayer life felt awkward, and we’ve gotten overwhelmed by the checklist of things a Christian “must do.”

If this is you, sweet sister, lay it down! Lay that baggage at the foot of the cross. 

God gives us only three things that are necessary to love him well. And that’s what we’re unpacking in today’s episode – WHAT does it mean to love God well? WHY is that meaningful in our every day lives?

This is the start of a mini-series looking at the four pillars of the Love Your People Well™ Podcast (love God, love yourself, love family, love others). For each one, we’ll dig into WHAT it means, WHY it is meaningful in your life, and HOW you can do it with practical strategies!
