The Barbara Rainey Podcast: Love As God Defines It

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and for many people, it is one of the most disliked days of the year. It creates unrealistic expectations on both husbands and wives and if you are single, it tends to rudely remind you that you don’t have a special someone to spend the holiday with. Love as God intended isn’t full of flowers and chocolate; in His words He says it’s full of patience, kindness, goodness, and many other traits. His love also wasn’t meant to be celebrated only one day a year. 

On the newest episode of The Barbara Rainey Podcast, Dennis and I talk about what biblical love looks like. Several years ago, I wrote a 14-day devotional called How Do I Love Thee?. On today’s podcast, we talk about the 14 descriptors of love that are in 1 Corinthians 13. I encourage you to download the devotional and companion hearts as well for the full effect! This is a great devo to do with your kiddos and get them involved so they, too, know about the love God intended for us!

I hope you enjoy going through the 14 descriptors of love as much as I enjoyed writing them! 

Ever His,

    Hi Barbara~
    Several years ago I purchased the “How Do I Love Thee” hearts which came with the lovely stories on each of the folded cards, the chain and little clips to hang them. I have one set myself that I pull out every year at this time, and I bought one for my son and his wife and for my daughter who was engaged to get married. Recently my youngest son was married and I ordered them on Etsy, my only option from the website. I was soooo disappointed at what I received; just the heart with the bible verse on the heart, not folded in half with the stories on them, no chain and no clips. And I had to print them out myself!
    Is there any way I can obtain another set like then ones I purchased a few years ago?
    Please let me know, I would really like for this new couple to have one just like the rest of us.
    Thank you!

    1. Kristi,
      So so sorry you were disappointed. We have closed our store and therefore can’t produce the folded cards anymore so we are offering the ones you bought to be used decoratively with the stories available to read with each card in an ebook. You can download the ebook here.
