“The Gift of LOVE”
by Hannah Keeley
February is LOVE month!! But this year, I want you to think bigger than a sappy Valentine and a box of chocolates (although I love them both!). Let’s endeavor this month to put on love every single day. Love when we talk with our husbands, love when we teach our children, love when we care for our homes. It is the greatest thing we can ever do–to love fully and completely, without looking for something in return. It’s also sometimes the hardest thing we can ever do.
It doesn’t always feel natural to love. Our natural inclination is often to…
…bite someone’s head off and spit venom down their throats!! Love has to be a conscious endeavor. It has to be forced sometimes. But with every challenge comes growth.
I do an activity with my kids when they’re little to teach them how to “put on love.” I was doing it with Klara and Kenna the other day, and their older brother, Korben, caught it on camera. Check it out. This is not only a good activity to do with your kids. It’s also a great activity to do with yourself every single morning before you begin your day.
“And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians 3:14
Hannah Keeley was once in overwhelmed mom living in a cluttered house, deep in debt, out of shape, and barely hanging on. But one day, after finding herself sobbing uncontrollably into a pile of clean laundry, she realized God has bigger and better plans for her (just like He does for each one of His children). Beginning that day, she began making changes in her life that took her from overwhelmed to overjoyed. Today, she’s helping moms do the same. Hannah, her husband, Blair, and their seven children live in Richmond, Virginia, and are having the time of their lives!
