No exceptions, everybody's loved, especially you.


Be Honest. Be Silly. Be Brave. Be Kind.

Jesus loves you exactly as you are! He loves you when you're honest and when you’re kind, when you’re sad and when you're tired – and even when you're angry. Jesus loves you exactly as you are because He made YOU exactly as you are, and He never, ever makes a mistake.
