Valentine's Day Book List

Mark your calendars: The brand new Valentine's Day guide is coming on January 5! 

I believe there is no better time to teach our children the truth about love and marriage through a biblical lens. In this 5-day study, we'll go beyond what our culture celebrates on Valentine's Day - solely romantic love - and study the four loves (eros, philia, storge, and agape). The guide includes a daily devotion, crafts, recipes, "love in action" ideas, and more. I cannot wait to share it with you!
In the meantime, I want to share the Valentine's Day book list. These are not required books, but add a lot to our study of love - and even if you aren't doing the Valentine's Day guide, they're wonderful books to check out from your library or add to your personal collection!
