The Courage to Love Big

The Courage to Love Big with The Real Kathy LeeThe Courage to Love Big – with The Real Kathy Lee

Today I attended my first ever Catalyst Leadership Conference. Wow. The theme of this year’s conference is Of Good Courage. That theme rang throughout everyone’s message, but there was a sub them ringing even a little louder in my heart.

Speaker after speaker mentioned love, the courage to love, loving anyway, loving everyone, loving big and always choosing love. I was convicted. As I mom, do I show my children how to love? Will they grow up loving everyone because they were loved and their family lead with love?

First, Andy Stanley talked about the courage to stay, to leave, to get help and submit. Good stuff. Next, Jeremy Courtney rocked my world when he shared how his family moved to Iraq to love his enemies. What? Do I love my enemies? Do my kids see me loving my enemies or complaining about them? And if that wasn’t convicting enough, Jeremy encouraged us to move towards the things that scare us the most? This man gave me so much to think about and meditate on.

Speaker after speaker encouraged us to be courageous leaders and LOVE. Simply LOVE. Bob Goff, Tim Tebow, Christy Wright, and Katie Davis Majors. All shared the same idea… Face your fears, Trust God and LOVE Big.

If we get to the end  (Daniel Pink talked about good endings) of this parenting gig and our kids don’t know they are loved, we might have just failed the most important task set before us. I don’t want that to be my ending, do you?

Lean in to your family, say yes to loving them well. Let them see you have the courage to face your fears and love those that creep you out. Let them see love ooze out of you because you are a follower of Christ. He loves us, simply as we are. Let’s agree to love big!
