Love Projects

A Love Project is simply a way for our family to share God’s love with other people. As parents, we desire to create a legacy in our lives and through our children of loving God and loving others. With all of our Love Projects, we try to keep the ideas and dreams of our children as organic as possible, while teaching them how to brainstorm, plan, organize, create, problem-solve, and think. And in the meantime, they are teaching us how to DREAM BIG all over again.
