Building Healthy Families: It’s coming . . . and guys, it’s not too late! Tuesday is VALENTINE’S DAY! Husbands, your wife doesn’t need an expensive new ring, but a handwritten letter expressing your love for her would be cherished forever. Fathers, don’t forget your daughters! How about writing a letter expressing your pride in her and the young woman she is becoming? It takes just a few minutes, but could make a forever difference. “Beloved, let us love one another!” (1 John 4:7)
