PARENTING TIP OF THE MONTH
Hugs, kisses, spending time together and looking after our children’s needs are all ways of letting them know they are loved, but experts are telling us we also need to use words to convey this important message. I love you - three simple words with a powerful impact. Children, especially as they age, need to hear us tell them they are loved, over and over again. So tell them you love them each time you greet them, remind them you love them as they leave, say goodnight and add those three powerful words and your child will know that they are indeed loved!

MARRIAGE TIP OF THE MONTH
February is often referred to as the month of love, since we celebrate Valentine’s Day on Feb. 14th. Real love isn’t a fairy tale though – it takes time and effort, good communication and spending time together. This Valentine’s Day go big: write each other a love letter, write out a list of the 10 things you most love about your spouse, commit to a date night each month on the 14th to keep the love day alive, look through your wedding album together and remember that moment when you united your love into one. Perhaps most importantly, commit to praying together each day because God is always present to give us strength when we need it!
