Wow, what a blessing it is today to have Mary R. Snyder – blogger, author, speaker, and a joyous new grandmother to a beautiful baby boy – come and share her heart with you all. The moment I was able to hug this gem of a heart at the SheSpeaks conference this year, when I visited, I knew I was embracing a truly genuine person into my life. I’m truly honored to have her share her perspective of what love is today, with you all; and my hope and prayer is that her words speak deeply into your hearts so you’re all as abundantly blessed by them as I was.

When I was asked to write about love I thought it would be simple. It’s love. What’s difficult about that, right?
My mind immediately went to the love chapter – 1 Corinthians 13. You know the one – love is patient, love is kind, love is….
A beautiful picture of love and one that I strive to live out with all those the Lord has placed in my heart.
But as I pondered the question ‘what is love?’, I kept going to the words from Jesus in John 14:
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” John 14:15
If I love Jesus I will keep His commandments.
