101 ways to show love

we hosted a human sexuality and morality seminar over the weekend for the senior high youth in our youth group. that in itself deserves its own post - having a room full of teenagers talking about God's design for sex is not only encouraging it is highly entertaining - but one of the handouts the teacher provided was really, really cool.

regardless of your relationship status, finding ways to show someone you love them can be a little tricky, especially when you feel like you've already done everything in the book. so here are 101 ways to show someone you love them (without doin the deed - lol... that i what the handout says). try some of these out with your spouse, best friend, sister - anyone you want to share love with!
