Speak Beloved is about encouraging the ones who love. It’s one of the last instructions Jesus gave to His disciples – to be known for their love. But it’s not easy. We need all the encouragement we can get, to be equipped and inspired to love those around us. Speak Beloved tackles the tough topics of depression, anxiety and fear.

It’s good to see you here, Beloved.
