"Loving who we are is vitally important because it comes of knowing ourselves as God made us to be. If God is good and holy, by simple logic that which He creates must be good and holy."
"More and more, society is demanding that a material body be worshipped and legitimized as our identity. This obsession has driven untold numbers of people to disparage, rather than love, themselves."
"Every question about our identity must be seen as an invitation to understand and love more the God who made us—and to love ourselves as we have been spiritually made to be."
"Our spiritual individuality isn’t optional, changeable, or questionable. It’s beautiful, it’s purposeful, it’s from God, and it’s eternally ours. We cannot lose what God has made us to be, and we cannot be less than what God has made us to be . . ."
