God’s Love

God is our loving Father in Heaven, and He loves all His children perfectly, including you. He loved us before we ever loved Him, and evidence of His love for you is everywhere.

You are a child of God

You are the “offspring of God” (Acts 17:29). He is the Father of your spirit. He wants to have a relationship with you. As a child of God, your potential is infinite.

God knows you

God knows you personally. Jesus taught that God the Father watches over all of His creations—a sparrow can’t fall to the ground without the Father knowing it (see Matthew 10:29). As for you, “the very hairs of [your] head are all numbered. Fear not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows” (Matthew 10:30–31).

God loves you

God wants to help His children be happy. He has blessed us with so much. He loves you, watches out for you, and wants you to communicate with Him through prayer. Jesus has promised, “Your Father which is in heaven [will] give good things to them that ask Him” (Matthew 7:11).

Through others

We often experience God’s love through our interactions with other people. As we follow promptings to give service—and as we receive service from others who are inspired by God—we can know that God is aware of us, knows our needs, and loves us.

Through His Son, Jesus

One of God’s greatest acts of love for us was to send His Son, Jesus, to the earth. Through the teachings and grace of Jesus we feel God’s love, receive forgiveness for our sins, and learn how to love the people around us.

Feeling God’s Love

Seek Peace

In a chaotic world, something as subtle and sacred as God’s love can be hard to recognize. God’s love is easier to find when we create moments to seek it out.


God is our loving Father in Heaven who loves His children and wants to hear from us. We can pray to ask for help in our lives, and we can pray to feel His love. If you ask God to feel His love for you, and you are patient for the response, it will come.

Show love to others

The Bible teaches us that as we live in peace with each other, we can feel God’s love for us. As we love and serve others, we will feel the love we are seeking from God.

Learning about His love

We can learn about God’s love by studying His word. As we read the Bible and the Book of Mormon, we learn that throughout history, God has never stopped loving His people. This can help us recognize God’s love in our own lives.
