Welcome to Created For Good Episode #1
This was a great interview with Jessica and Jason Stockmar. They hosted a young boy from Ukraine and are now in the process of working towards adoption. We asked them about their journey so far, and what true love means to them. From January – April 100% of the profits from our Market will go towards their adoption costs.

“Love is patience, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking , it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always persevere. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
God plants dreams and visions in our hearts when we are younger that don’t take seed until we have grown, but God also shows us how to love and bring people to find God in ways we have never thought would come.
“Small actions towards love lead us to our God given purpose and talent.” – Justin Hayslett
When you take ONE small step and help where you can, God will use and change things because of that ONE small step.
When Jesus died on the cross it wasn’t a warm fuzzy feeling, it was action, he did it for the greater good. That is true love.
True love is not about a fuzzy feeling, it’s an ACTION.
“If I speak in tounges of men or of angles, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountians, but have no love, I am nothing. If I give all that I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
Small steps toward love lead us to a God given purpose, but small steps in the wrong direction without love lead us towards a path of regret.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption of sonship through Jesus Christ, in accoradance with his pleasure and will.”Ephesians 1:3-5
God’s nature is love.
“We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
Jesus didn’t love us out of a feeling, he put that feeling into love.
What are you gonna do to show love? Jesus proved his love on the cross!
“In the same way, faith by itself, if it not accomplished by action, is dead.” James 2:17
