When was the last time that you intentionally let your kids know how much you love them?
Sometimes life is just so busy and happens so quickly that we forget to do this! What better way to express our love than through a tangible hand-written note?
My kids love getting hand-written notes, and I bet yours do too! Mailbox love notes are designed to help you write meaningful, Bible inspired notes, and they are easy to use.
Last year I purchased each of my children an inexpensive mailbox from a local craft store. My kids love their mailboxes and they get so excited when they see that the flag is up! They even play a game of trying to keep it a secret from each other, because each child likes to discover for him/herself when the flag is up. (And my children are not the best secret keepers in the world!)
I like to randomly put little notes or treats into their boxes, but it is so hard to keep up with this fun activity. Often weeks will go by and I will not have taken the time to communicate with my children in this important way. That is why I designed these “Mailbox Love Notes”. Each card features a verse about God’s love to us, and then encourages the application of this love to everyday life. There are fill-in-the-blank lines on every card for specific details and personal messages to your child.
I desire to teach my children that God is the center of life itself, and that His love, mercy, and grace is sufficient for every aspect of our lives. These cards emphasize God’s forgiveness and work in our lives. We cannot do anything so bad that God will not forgive us when we repent. And, we can never be good enough to deserve salvation. Only Jesus’ work on the cross can lead us to obedience and good works. If you would like more information on this topic, please read Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus.
The Mailbox Love Notes cover a variety of topics from encouragement to asking forgiveness, from getting along with difficult people to reassurances of God’s unfailing love.
If you don’t have a mailbox, these notes are great left under a pillow, in a backpack, or hidden in the socks drawer (provided your kids actually use their socks drawer).
