"Be with someone who you don’t have to hide from, in any way. Whether it’s your morning face before you’ve put your make up on, an embarrassing story to tell about something that happened on your way home, or an ambition you’ve had since you were six… make sure you end up with someone who knows all of it and still loves you. A person you can tell your whole life to is a person worth spending a life with."

"I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it."

"Knowing the love of God changes you. When you know His love, you also begin to know His heart. It’s because of who He is that He can love us the way He does. His heart is so beautiful, and the more you see it, the more you know it, the more you want to be like that, too.
Jesus doesn’t change you to love you. He loves you and it changes you.
To know love, you have to know God, who is love.
You don’t know what true love is until you know Christ.
You can’t comprehend it until you simply lay yourself down and receive the love He longs to give you.
Being loved is not about loving ourselves, but receiving the love of God.
The answer is always Jesus, not self. If we look to self, we look to imperfect love. If we look to God, we look to perfect love.”
