ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE
…says a famous song.
But what kind of LOVE is the love that we NEED? It isn’t only romantic love.
Its the love between friends, between a parent and a child, the love expressed as mutual respect and admiration between colleagues, the love of Jesus to us, the love that is simply listening to someone share their thoughts and feelings.
The love we need is all these things and more.
A few weeks back Josh, myself and others in our production team spent a day listening to the stories of many many individuals who were impacted by I Kissed Dating Goodbye. These people from across the globe were brave enough to share their experiences with us for potential inclusion in the film. It was a humbling experience for us to listen to a wide variety of stories and consider how we can love the church (and individuals) better with this film, because that is our goal.
So yes, all you need is love.
Days like today are what you make of them so make sure you express love to someone in your life today.

Judge Judy is yelling at a man for not knowing what the word “subsequent” meant. She should have been along for the ride with me when I was in CPS investigation training. A coworker of mine explained that if we didn’t meet certain deadlines with most cases, we would be “pending”. I asked her, “Pending what?” She said, “You’re just pending.” I asked again for clarification. “But are you pending being written up? Are you pending termination?” She repeated, “you’re just listed as pending.” I realized she didn’t know what “pending” meant and had no choice but to leave it alone.
There will be a lighter, comical side of my book- I promise. That is, pretty much, an “out of the mouthes of babes” element. I didn’t journal too much of it, so when a priceless one comes up in my Facebook memories, I need to share it here.
This happened when I worked at the children’s museum, at the station where science experiments are presented.
I asked this radical feminist youtuber if having children is part of “the patriarchy”. This is her snide remark. I do no have this dismal view of my daughter or any of the children I’ve worked with.
I don’t usually listen to TED talks, but couldn’t wait for his.
