Bring Back That Lovin’ Feeling: 29 Days of Loving Your Family Purposefully

Every month in 2012, I’m focusing on being intentional. In January, I focused on Intentional Conversations. This month, in honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m focusing on LOVE.  Now, I know it’s easy for you to love your kids and your family and your friends– they’re great and you know it.  But do you always show them intentionally?  I don’t!  I often get caught up in my daily live and forget that little, intentional acts of love go a long way.

That’s why this month, I’m hosting a 29-day “Loving on Purpose” challenge. Every day I’m going to post a challenge for you to show somebody that you love them in an intentional way.  You do the challenge and tell me about it, you’ll be entered to win one of two cool prizes.

On February 17th, I’ll draw one person from all of the comments during the month and give them a pack of 3 Maama Cards. Maama Cards is a company started by my friend Rachel Spies and the proceeds go to support maternal health care in Africa.  It’s a great cause and the cards are really cute.

On February 29th, I’ll draw one person from all the commments between Feb 18th and Feb 29th and give that person Divine Chocolate. Divine Chocolate is one of the only chocolate companies that uses equal trade practices with their farmers and never exploits their workers.  So, if you win, I’ll let you pick 3 bars of your choice and I’ll ship them to you.

So, today’s challenge: Pick up your phone and call someone that you love and tell them.  Say “Hey, I was just thinking about you…and you’re so, so great!”  When you do it, write me a comment and tell me who you called and you’ll be entered to win!
