February 11

It’s that time of year again where the stores get filled with red balloons, heart decorations, lover’s cards, gifts, and flowers. February 14th is nationally recognized as “lover’s day,” a relationship day, and day for couples. Some singles despise the day, some couples enjoy the romance-focused day, other people feel overwhelmed, and other people avoid it at all cost. Either way, the focus tends to be solely on romantic relationships.  Valentine’s Day isn’t simply a day for couples or the marital dyad; it is also a day for families.  Celebrating as a family unit can be twice as important for the marriage and for the structure of the family. Good News…Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday, and it gives you the entire day to spend it as a family!

Among the strain of work, family issues, parenting differences, and typical interpersonal stressors, the holiday can put additional pressure on the existing issues of finances and relationships. Here are a few FREE ideas on how to spend Valentine’s Day as a family:

  1. Family Scavenger Hunt: Step out of the box of traditional Valentine’s Day activities and try something different. Create a scavenger hunt around your yard and house with hints revolving around topics of family memories, admirations, love, and future goals.  Have fun and be creative with the hints. 
  2. Park, Cupcakes, and Games:  No matter the age of your children, there is always some type of game that can be played at the park.  Depending on the age and size of your family, the games can range from red light – green light to Simon-Says, from a card game to a football toss, and from tag to pictionary.  Show your family that you can relax and that you aren’t always a “workaholic” or “stress-case.”   
  3. Bake Heart Shaped Cookies as a family:  Our society is getting into the rut of taking the “easy way out” in life and buying the pre-packaged items, such as cookie dough.  Instead, make heart shaped cookies from scratch and decorate them as a family.  And yes…. this include you, Dad!   Not only will you teach the family a valuable lesson of baking, you also get to enjoy the activity of bonding and eating delicious cookies.   
  4. Homemade Cards:  Sit with your family at the table with music in the background (no television).  Make handmade cards to express how much you love them and the importance they have in your life. The time together can create time to talk, joke, laugh and share as a family. Even though you may show your love through your actions, express it in words as well.  Kids enjoy hearing it! 
  5. Movie Day:  If you don’t usually have a movie day as an entire family, make it a unique day for the family.  Watch a few movies with popcorn, pillows, fun snacks, and other unique items.  
  6. Mini-Trip: Pack a picnic and hop in the car.  Take the adventure of hopping in your car and driving to a nearby town or fun town spot.  Explore as a family and make a mini-trip out of it.  Later find a place for a picnic and enjoy your meal. 


If you have other ideas of FREE things you can do as a family for Valentine’s Day, share it!  The more ideas, the better!  Remember, not only does the family benefit, your marital bond can grow stronger through simply spending this day together.

My name is Kristen Van Weyenberg. I never knew that there will be a time where my husband can no longer look into my eyes and tells me he loves me. I suffered heart break when my husband left home to be with another lady in her apartment without caring for me and our lovely daughter. I had to do 3 shifts every day to pay my bills and also take care of my daughter. Last month, I came across an article online saying how Lord Zakuza as been so helpful to a lots of people in the restoration to their broken love lives. I contacted him through this Email: Lordzakuza7@gmail.co m and he told me that he will restore my marriage within 48 hours with his magical powers and i believed in his words that my husband will come back and “wow”, within 48 hours after i contacted Lord Zakuza, my husband came back begging saying he didn’t know what came over him that he’s sorry and promised never to abandon I and my daughter again I am so grateful to him for restoring my marriage. WhatsApp this number +1 (740) 573-9483 for more inquiries if you need his help..

This testimony is worth sharing to the world. I am here to tell the world of the good works of Dr ORMAN. My name is Olivia Bolton am from the UK.. My man left me and my kids for another older woman. It was not so easy for me.. I love my husband so much and I did not lose hope and I kept praying and God finally answered my prayers...i searched online for a spell caster to help me unite me and my lover back forever and i saw so many testimonies of how DR ORMAN has helped so many people online and i decided to give him a trial … I contacted him and explained to him. He told me not to worry that he will bring back my man within 24 hours. He consulted his powers and assured me not to worry . He did his work and cast the spell and to my greatest surprise, my husband came back the same day begging and crying just as Dr ORMAN said. He begged me for forgiveness and he promised never to leave me for any reason. We are happy and we live together as one.

Hi everyone I'm Olivia Hannah and am here to share the wonderful work Dr Raypower did for me. After 5 years in marriage with my husband with 2 kids, my husband started acting weird and going out with other ladies and showed me cold love, on several occasions he threatens to divorce me if I dare question him about his affair with other ladies, I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet called Dr. Raypower who help people with relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him, he helped me cast a love spell and within 48hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with other ladies and his with me for good and for real. Contact this great love spell caster for your relationship or marriage problem to be solved today via email: Urgentspellcast@gmai l.com or Urgentspellcast@yaho o.com or Call or WhatsApp: +14243308109.
