Wholly Loved Ministries proclaims freedom in Christ and inspires freed women to proclaim freedom. This is why we’re here. This is our driving mission and the reason we do all that we do. We get super charged to hear stories of women stepping deeper into freedom. Finding healing from past hurts, confidence and a deep sense of God’s acceptance in place of shame, courage in areas we used to cower in fear, restoration in relationships once seemingly irreparably broken …
Christ died to set us free. Think about that for a moment. That is how important our freedom is to Him.Do we place the same value on that which Christ gave His life for? Before we answer that, we have to consider what we give our energy and time to: Those things that lead to slavery or freedom? Click To Tweet
I get it. It’s hard. Those negative, enslaving thoughts feel so insurmountable. But here’s the truth: They aren’t. In Christ we’ve been given everything––everything!––we need to live out the full, abundant, over-flowing, freed and eternally significant life Christ died to give us. What’s more, if we belong to Christ and have trusted in Him for salvation, Scripture says resurrection power resides within us. The same power that brought life to a corpse left in a tomb for three days, no pulse, no breath, no blood coursing through veins, lives and moves within us, giving us the power to live as God desires.

And what does God desire? That we live in freedom. This message, this truth, saturates Scripture.
This is the gospel.
We proclaim freedom in Christ, because He’s the only one with the power to set us free. He alone broke the power of sin and death and is, at this moment, reconciling the world to Himself and advancing His kingdom reign. His kingdom reign in the world, in our neighborhood, our relationships, and our lives.
Which begs another question: Are we giving Christ and His truth and presence full reign within us? Click To Tweet
A perhaps confusing thought, but simply put, the deeper we step into grace and the closer we grow to Christ, the more He reigns in us and our lives, and the more He reigns, the greater our freedom.A life marked by Christ's reign is necessarily a life of impact. Click To Tweet
Freed women proclaim freedom. It wells within us and overflows, splashing liberty and love on everyone we encounter.

Anchored and Secure by Wholly Loved Ministries:
Thanks to Christ’s death and resurrection, we don’t have to stress, strive, or perform. We simply need to rest in what Christ has already done. That is when we begin to come; to live as He intended. That’s when we discover true and lasting freedom.

Christ created us to live in freedom and to base our self-worth not on other people’s opinions but instead, on His. To give Him the final say and to filter every struggle, setback, hurt, celebration, and disappointment, through His lens of love and grace.When we allow God’s love to soak into our deepest, darkest, most wounded and fearful places, we learn to rest in who are in Christ; to live wholly loved.That’s where true and abundant life begins—in Him. The closer we grow to Christ, the more time we spend with Him and reading His Word, the Bible, the more we come alive.This 30 day devotional helps women deepen their relationship with Christ and their understanding of His love and grace so they can find themselves, afresh, in Him.
Let the ordinary people from Hebrews 11 inspire your faith and show you how to live strong and finish well.
“I highly recommend Little Faith, Big God …” –Josh McDowell, Christian apologist and best-selling author of Evidence That Demands a Verdict

Present-day stories and guiding questions invite personal reflection, application, and discussion. Little Faith, Big God will equip you to trade your self-made superhero cape for a dynamic, grace-filled relationship with our big God.
Where Dandelions Bloom by Tara Johnson:
Cassie Kendrick is on the run. Her abusive father arranged her marriage to a despicable man, but she’s discovered an escape. Disguised as a man, Cassie enlists in the Union army, taking the name Thomas Turner. On the battlefields of the Civil War, keeping her identity a secret is only the beginning of her problems, especially after she meets Gabriel Avery, a handsome young photographer.
Anxious to make his mark on the world and to erase the darkness and guilt lurking from his past, Gabriel works with renowned photographer Matthew Brady to capture images from the front lines of the war. As Gabriel forges friendships with many of the men he encounters, he wonders what the courageous, unpredictable Thomas Turner is hiding.
Battling betrayal, their own personal demons, and a country torn apart by war, can Cassie and Gabriel learn to forgive themselves and trust their futures to the God who births hope and healing in the darkest places?
