Beloved | Holle’s Story

Dec 21, 2022

See All Beloved Stories »

To be beloved, is to be loved unconditionally by God. It is both knowing and receiving God. It is openness to the Spirit’s work, which leads to incredible stories worth telling.

Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

1 John 4:7

Beloved is a series from The Offices of Communications and Digital Evangelism focused on sharing the stories of God’s beloved. These are stories of love, belonging, and seeing God in the world. It’s testimony of the heart in a broken world.

Holle was raised in another denomination that left her with lots of questions about where a person with mental health sits with God. When it can be a daily struggle to feel God’s love. Her story is one of finding the hope of God through therapy and coming to know that even in the dark, God is with us.
