Wondering if true love still exists?
We believe that true love, real freedom, and authentic identity can be found only in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
And we know that God still writes the best love stories.
The stories are as varied as the people they represent. Different life experiences, different mistakes, different families, different callings. It’s marvelous to hear all the many ways that the Lord works. He is the author of love and our love stories are unique expressions of His heart. Part of the beauty of reading love stories is experiencing the many differences in them. Some may seem similar from a distance, but when you look up close, every story is unique. Which means, if you have a love story, it will be unlike any that you’ve ever read before—because it will be yours. Don’t read stories looking for the one you want, because you’ll never find the one you will get. Just enjoy them for their variety, for their beauty.

Love Stories: a collection from Kindred Grace
What if you could have your faith restored in a God Who still delights in making dreams come true?
"I believe love stories touch a place in our souls because they mirror — however imperfectly — the beautiful, redemptive love story that is the Gospel. The story of a Lover Who would risk everything to win His beloved, even His life. The broken bride who was unable to return His love but was healed and restored, fully remade by that sacred Lover. Real-life love stories offer little glimpses of the amazing, magnificent romance that will culminate at the end of time. They are a gift from God that can encourage our hearts as we put our trust in Christ to find our place in the eternal love story."

Looking for more love stories?
My favorite love stories are true ones. In fact, I've probably read or heard the stories of nearly 150 Christian couples, each one as unique as a fingerprint. Some couples called it "courtship," some called it "dating," and some met and married long before the terms acquired their present meanings. God's kindness is evident in them all.
