"To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us."

"When you know your own value, you can begin to distance yourself from the things that destroy you."

"Christ’s love was not an intense feeling, a full heart, etc.; it was rather the work of love, which is his life."

"Why would anyone want to be married without having God as a partner? I can’t imagine facing the challenges of marriage without the hope of God to lift up my eyes when I’m discouraged and the conviction of God to open my eyes when I’m blind to my own sin. Since marriage is something you make, and since marriage is going to be difficult, I’d want to marry someone who knows how to pray, who practices prayer, and who is growing in prayer."
