  1. i always try to show my love for all of God's little ones by caring for them and showing them patience. :)

  2. my favorite way to show love is too cook. whether it's cookies or a giant feast, I love to be able to provide for people that way :)

  3. I show love through my job. I want to know each one of my students individually, their troubles they have gone through to get to Monticello, and how wonderful people they all are. I completely agree with you on the little notes or cards. I leave Dereck little notes everywhere. I also sent my students that were able to transition back to their home school a card in the mail that had a quote of encouragement on it. You are so right that it is such an easy way to let someone know you were thinking about love. God's love <3


  4. My absolute favorite way of showing love is in my 2 yr old class on Sunday nights and to the 2 precious girls that I get to babysit. I get to hug, and love, and squeeze, and tickle, and giggle all over those sweet babies. Every Sunday night [or when I get to watch the girls] God reminds me of the love of a child. I try my hardest to show them how much they are loved, but I am always out-loved by them. I strive to love people and God like a child loves, but I fail miserably everyday! I have so much to learn from such tiny hearts!

  5. i am taking this Saturday to stop by my followers and say HI and tell you how much I appreciate you! Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. I try to show God & others love with service, helping out at church, feeding others, praying for them....just be encouraging. Happy weekend!

  7. Love God, Love Others? I think my most constant way is showing God's love to my kids. So they'll know him and show His love to others. SO MUCH HARDER than it seems! :)

  8. i love to send cards as well!! i need to be more intentional about doing that!

  9. I show my love of God by trying to be as helpful as I can to everyone, it's a work in progress.

  10. I've started choosing someone to "love bomb" with something that I think might encourage them. I'm trying to reach out once a week, as anonymously as possible, to help and support others. From a gift card to the grocery store or a meal for their family to leaving special notes and verses for the mailman and receptionist at my office, I just want God to use these little things to lift their hearts, as He does mine.

  11. I'd love to win! I love God and Love others by serving in my church as the Women's Ministry Leader.
