You were created to live loved, sis.

…and I’ve got a knack for helping gals step into their identity as fully known + deeply loved.

My name is Dana Marie Arnold and I’m so happy you’re here. Wondering who this chica is? Glad you asked! First and foremost, I am absolutely consumed with love for Jesus Christ. I share my faith + spark conversations with other women who want to live boldly for Him through a podcast I host called The Hope Collective Podcast. I’m also a speaker, singer-songwriter, and worship leader. Check out all of the resources I’ve designed to encourage you in your walk with the Lord. I truly believe that, in Christ, life is anything but boring. Let’s live our lives activated by the transformative power of Jesus Christ!

free indeed.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” Galatians 5:1

For the first 2 years of my life as a believer, it felt like I was on a rollercoaster - constantly shifting with the circumstances of my life. I knew He loved me as a biblical principal, but I was dealing with deep pangs of rejection, comparison, guilt, shame and condemnation. Many days, those icky feelings outweighed the truth of His love for me. Although I was free in Him, I was having a really hard time trying to walk in that freedom from day to day (Keyword: trying).

All of that changed when I stopped trying out of my own strength and realized that I could more fully surrender + believe in the finished work of the cross. To me, Living Loved is walking in freedom from myself + others, gaining all I need from Him. The more I press into the freedom of being loved by Him, the less I need the approval of others, and the more I share with them the love of Christ.

If we take God at His Word (which we oughta do!), we can truly walk in the freedom of the cross + equip others to do the same. Living Loved equips us to live on mission each day, wherever we go! :)

living loved.

What would it look like to live a life defined by love? A life that isn’t dependent upon the applause of men or the number on the scale? A life that reflects and glorifies the Life living within you? I believe, as a follower of Jesus Christ, we are made for so much more than we can begin to imagine.

I believe that life as a believer can be a complete adventure, from the moment we wake up until the moment our heads hit the pillow. I believe it, because I live it. Not everyday is a Pirates-of-the-Caribbean kind of adventure - but when I realized that the God of the Universe, the King of Kings, has made His home in my heart - it’s difficult to live in any other way than completely loved. And, scoot a little closer, darlin’… isn’t love the greatest adventure of all?

The lover of our souls, love itself, Jesus Christ, invites us to come as we are — broken. But He promises to never leave us there. An encounter with Him always leaves us redeemed. So, here is your invitation: Come Broken, Leave Redeemed. So happy you found your way to my digital front porch. I promise, there are no coincidences. You’re meant to be here. Jesus loves you. Believe it. Know it. Live it. Live Loved.
