In February, many of us enjoy cutting out pink hearts and telling our families how much we love them. Our family has slowly built a collection of books we enjoy reading through this time of year to help us build on our understanding of love and it's practical applications.
If you are searching for a way to learn as a family about Valentine's Day and to direct your children to understand what God says about love, check out our Beloved Guide which takes families on a 5 day journey studying the 4 biblical loves.
The books shared below are used in our guide as well!
