So my faith informs me that I am indeed a child of God – a daughter born to speak the truth that the formation of family life requires a spirit of adoption that emanates from the love of Christ – which is liberty that belongs to the soul and cannot be taken, but is easily surrendered to the fearful and condemning thoughts and experiences of the world.
Thus I understand family as a spiritual fabric of relationships that are much more than a byproduct of series of biological events; rather, family is a covenant to love one another as God loves humanity: fearlessly. Families are formed on purpose, for a purpose: to defend love in the face of evil in the world by educating one another through Wisdom, not by worldly knowledge and controlling motives. In this way, I understand that I have the authority to love, not to condemn. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
1 John 4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
All it takes is one mustard seed of faith to get a fresh start.

Faith is a touchy subject, and yet we know when you stand for nothing, you fall for anything – especially in the social network.
