Some people can casually say, “I love you,” but for others, it’s an almost sacred phrase that is reserved for the most special of circumstances and people. Steph and I explore our experience with love—the word and the emotion. When I think of “love,” I think of the verse in 1 John that tells us, “God is love.” I also think of my husband. I’ve been in love with him since I was a teenager. Steph talks about how she understood love in a new way when her first nephew was born. I share that I understood unconditional love only after I became a mom. In this episode, Steph and I have an honest conversation about what makes us feel loved and what love means to us
