Does Valentine’s Day hold special memories for you? While some lament commercialization and the promotion to purchase in excess, celebrating special events (small and big) can offer reminders to the meaning and beauty of life. These hooks can be a worthy investment of time, energy, and finances. Hooks offer staples to family life which could become monotonous if we fail to carefully tend day-to-day or season-to-season.

Valentine’s for our family come in the form of door decorations. Each person will receive colorful hearts posted to their bedroom door with special notes about how kind, loving, generous, and merciful they are through observed actions and words. Starting thoughts for making this time of the year festive and fun for all of your family members include:

  • Kindness Counts Challenge
  • Handcrafted gifts for family members
  • Community Outreach
  • Personalized Love Notes
