That’s what I want my kids to be. Givers.
Many times we focus on teaching our children to think of others during the Christmas holiday season. But honestly, I love using any excuse to help my kids think about how they can give to others. Trust me, we need all the practice we can get!
Although I love cute busy boxes and sensory activities, I wanted to help my children make something beautiful, meaningful, and lasting this Valentine’s Day. And even more than that I want to encourage them to think about the how and why of loving others.
Why do we love the people around us? We love because God first loved us! 1 John 4: 19
How do we love others? With a patient, kind, and humble heart! 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
