Ten Reasons Why

Even the most confident, well-adjusted, emotionally healthy, spiritually grounded people in the world (and let’s face it—how many of those people are there out there) need reminders that they are, indeed, beloved children of God, worthy of love and capable of doing good things in the world.

 We ALL need to be reminded.

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you probably know about the IALAC sign we wear. We all start the day with an invisible sign that says I Am Lovable and Capable (IALAC) around our necks. But as the day goes on, choices we make, people we encounter and situations we have to deal with tear away little pieces of that sign and on some days, we arrive home with our sign, our self-worth and our outlook shredded to pieces.

On days when our IALAC sign really takes a beating, we need to be able to remember who we are and Whose we are.

I created the free resource 10 Reasons Why You are Lovable and Capable a few years ago and have adapted, updated and honed it based on feedback, questions and suggestions from those who have used it. The latest version is out, still free and ready for you to check it out.

My hope is that the 10 Bible verses and reflections can be transforming for you on those days when life has pretty much trampled us. So check it out for the first time or download this latest version for a reminder of who you are and Whose you are.
