“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart . . . soul . . . mind and . . . strength. . . . Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” - Mark 12:30-31 (NIV)
Jesus commanded all who would follow him to “love your neighbor as yourself,” but for most of my life I ignored the last two words of the commandment. I did not love myself. I thought I had to be perfect to be acceptable, and I didn’t know how to forgive...
Because God loves me, I will treat myself with kindness and love.

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
