5 Powerful Reasons You Must Recapture the Lost Art of Sending a Card Today

Technology has turned the way we communicate upside down. Inboxes and text screen overflow. Sometimes emails become more of a bane than blessing. The email with the 124 pictures of cats was adorbs the first time, but somehow less endearing the 54th time you received it.

What if you reached out to someone the old-fashioned way using an aptly worded greeting card?

Who in your life can you reach out to today and speak words of hope and life and encouragement?

I felt compelled to create a line of cards for those who don’t know what to say. Because sometimes store bought cards just don’t capture our hearts.

Lately, I’ve been thinking about why we need to consider sending more cards a regular part of our lives.

Coloring book 2

One evening, I grabbed a bite to eat with my friend, Naomi. She shared the details of a complex conflict between her and a co-worker. The key to resolving to the disagreement was recognizing that she was operating out of an area of insecurity that had haunted her since childhood. With this realization, she renewed her efforts to work hard and well with the co-worker. The irritant in the relationship disappeared.

“That’s one of those cases of learning to live loved,” she said.

“What do you mean?” I asked.


“Living as if we’re loved by God instead of responding out of the usual petty jealousies, insecurities, fears, or annoyances that try to get the best of us.”

“Live loved,” the syllables somersaulting off my lips. “I like that.”

The phrase followed me home. The words didn’t just capture the heart of the greatest commands to love God and others, but struck me as a crucial, even foundational for abounding in joy.

Apart from love, our potential for experiencing joy remains flat like a lifeless balloon. Love exhales the fullness of joy.

I began to pray: Lord, how do you want me to live today in light of your love?

That’s why I’ve created the Live Loved: An Adult Coloring Book. Within these pages, you’ll find hand-selected Scriptures that speak to God’s love for you and how His love is meant to flow through you to others.

Coloring Book 3

The Live Loved: Adult Coloring Book provides an opportunity for you to:

  • Spend time praying and reflecting to grow in your relationship with God
  • Commit Bible passages to memory to deepen your faith
  • Marinate in the truth of God’s fierce love for you and experience transformation
  • Express your love for God and the Bible through creativity
  • Strengthen relationships as you invite others to create alongside you
  • Share your artistry with others as you show off your work



Our team has been working to make this coloring book a reality. Today, I’m thrilled to announce Live Loved: Adult Coloring Books are now available in our store.

Playing with color & paint is fun for grown-ups, too. My hope and prayer is that, this book will help you unleash the creative talents God has given you. Color and sketch, whisper the words aloud, commit them to memory, and learn how to live loved in a tangible way.


You can live loved starting today.

Giveaways You Don’t Want to Miss: Candace Cameron Bure, Jen Hatmaker, Emily Freeman

When I worked as a journalist early in my writing career, I interviewed Kirk Cameron multiple times. Kirk’s kindness, thoughtfulness and passion for Christ made a lasting impression on Leif and I. To this day, whenever we see him at events, he remembers our names, asks about our lives, and still walks in remarkable graciousness. Continue Reading...

How to Nurture Wonder

In our modern culture, we aren’t really taught to nurture a sense of wonder.

Yet from the very beginning of Genesis, we get a glimpse creating endless surprises in the sky, sea, and land, all the way to the closing of Revelation where we see God seated on the throne with peels of lightning and thunder and creatures beyond description, we serve a God who is full of wonder. Indeed, our God is Wonderful.

I'm so excited to be part of the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, October 7-9--an event that attracts more than 10,000 pastors, leaders, and ministers from around the world. Gifted teachers, gurus, and my personal heroes including Andy Stanley, Louie Giglio, Brene Brown, Erwin McManus, Christine Caine and many more will be exploring the theme of Awaken to Wonder. Plus, on lab day, I can't wait to be part of the If:Gathering Track.

Why is wonder so crucial?

If familiarity breeds contempt, then religious familiarity breeds cynicism. 

All of us, if we are not careful, can lose the wonder.

The wonder of...

being a child of God

of having our name on the lips of Jesus

of sharing the name of a holy nation, a royal priesthood, a gathering of precious saints

of walking among those who are broken but made whole, sinful but redeemed, imperfect but deeply loved

Hebrews 12:28-29 says, “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.”

Do you see it?

Our worship of God, in part, is to be fueled by a sense of awe.

And so if we, who claim to be followers of Jesus, lovers of God, and aren’t experiencing any wonder of who God is in our lives, then maybe we need to ask some hard questions: Continue Reading...
