Hello and welcome! I’m Amy Hartle, and I’m the blogger behind An Everlasting Love.
I’ve been blogging for a long time (nearly a decade now) and I decided it was high time to create a site that focuses on my passion: marriage and relationships. While I cover the same topics extensively on my site Two Drifters, I wanted to create a place where I could look at these topics through the lens of Faith.
Over the past several years, I’ve find myself returning to the beliefs I grew up with: faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Although my beliefs look somewhat different now than they did in my teen years, I feel like I’m closer to God than I’ve ever been, and part of that discovery has been through my marriage.
When I married my husband Nathan, I realized just how deeply I could love another person. To me, if that kind of love exists, I cannot help but believe that God exists. That kind of love couldn’t just be an accident.
Not only that, but I’ve come to learn more and more that God IS Love. Not only has he given it to us as a gift but he is the embodiment of Love itself, particularly in His sacrifice on the cross. We love, because he first loved us.
Whenever I start to have doubts, I focus on the love of Jesus. I think that’s the most integral part of Christianity and that is the one that’s easy to miss. But Jesus says he has loved us with an everlasting love. I take immense comfort in that and it’s something I want to pattern my own marriage and my own life on.
If you want to learn to do the same, you’re in a good place. Thanks for being here!
