HOW DO YOU SHOW LOVE? Happy Valentine's Day!

HOW DO YOU SHOW LOVE? Happy Valentine's Day!

How do you show love to others in a practical way? When do you show love to others?

When we think of Valentine's Day, we think of Romantic Love. But kids start to understand love by the daily actions of others. Nothing big required. Just a kind word. Or a simple thank-you.

Kids Learn to Love by Actions

But it's hard! We don't want to stop, to think, to take action.

In GREATEST, Love Truly and her friends, Hope Big and Faith Deep, must confront their own fears and find the courage to be a friend.
