Love ‘Em Up: 28 Days, 28 Ideas


Who is ready to open up the roof of their house and pour in a serious dose of LOVE? It makes perfect sense to focus on LOVE in the month of February.

In December, we did Light ‘Em Up and basically took random acts of kindness out into the community. We sure did Light ‘Em Up!

In February, it’s time to take it inside. We are taking the 28 days of February to LOVE ‘EM UP – yep, love the ones you’re with. Our kids, our husbands. Every day – taking random acts of kindness approach on our family so that they feel LOVED. And so that they LEARN and EXPERIENCE the virtue of love.

Why? Because it’s the most important thing we can do.
