Love Letters

We want our kids to begin to understand just how deep and wide and extravagant God's love is for all of us. How better to tell them than through His word and just before a celebration of that beautiful word itself?

So grab some envelopes, paper and pen or keyboard and printer, tiny treats (one per day/per child), maybe even some pretty paper and scissors and glue... we're going on an advent type of scavenger hunt.

Simply put, just copy and paste (or hand write) the verses below onto paper and slip them individually into envelopes. I did seven so we could start on Monday and end on V-Day. Decorate as much or as little as you'd like. Then each day have a little scavenger hunt to see who can find His love letter to the family.

Adapted Verses for Little Ones:
*I am love.
1 John 4:8

*Love each other as family and honor others above yourself.
Romans 12:10

*Walk in love as Jesus loves you and gave His life for you.
Ephesians 5:2

*Little children, let us love for real. Let us love in truth and with all that we do.
1 John 3:18

*How precious is my never stopping love! You are safe and can trust in me.
Psalm 36:7

*I want you to know the best way. Love is the best way of all!
1 Corinthians 12:31

*Love each other just like I love you.
John 13:34
