Meet Monique Love of With Love By Love in North Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Monique Love.

Monique, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started writing straight out of High School for my mom’s, now defunct, entertainment publication. The gig gave me the opportunity to travel and cover all the major Hollywood events. As blessed as I was to be in this position, I felt like I was living someone else’s dream because I did not want to write about entertainment. When I rededicated my life to God several years later, I was working as a freelance social media consultant creating social content for independent filmmakers. As much as I loved working for myself, I yet again ended up writing about a topic I wasn’t passionate about. One day, God gave me the idea to combine my love for writing and Him which birthed my blog!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Absolutely not! The road of your dreams is never smooth, it’s always a bumpy road. The biggest struggles I’ve faced are emotional — inadequacy, feeling forgotten and fear.

What do you do, what do you specialize in, what are you known for, etc. What are you most proud of? What sets you apart from others?
WithLoveByLove.com is a faith-based blog geared toward the popping, confident and unapologetic Christian millennial woman. What I’m most proud of is also what sets us apart. We make it a point to be transparent in hopes that others going through similar issues can be delivered from their struggles and also provide comforting in knowing they aren’t alone. I pride myself on tackling real-life issues that everyone goes through but are oftentimes ignored by the church. As a result of these overlooked issues, there are many Christians who struggle in areas (mental illness, sex, coveting, etc.) that make them believe that something is wrong with them. For instance, churches will quickly remind you that sex outside of marriage isn’t biblical but generally fail to give you the tools to overcome sexual desires and lust. WithLoveByLove.com is a place that speaks up on the very real issues that the church tends to sweep under the rug.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
When I first launched my blog in 2016 no one was reading my work, but I continued writing. I never stopped. I stayed CONSISTENT and followed the course I believe was paved out for me. There’s a reward in your consistency. No one may be reading your work one day and the next it could thousands.
