“If you could teach your kids only one thing, what would it be?” I heard someone ask this question the other day, and it sent my mind racing.

In the blur of a typical day, it feels like I’m trying to teach my boys a million little things {which typically go totally ignored!}. It was a real challenge to think of just ONE life lesson I want them to know – until it finally hit me:


Do all things with love. 


Years from now, I’d love to look back on our precious little life together and know that, within these walls, our boys learned to let love guide all of their decisions: how they treat others, how they treat themselves, the work they choose, the pastimes they pursue, and the ways they make their mark on the world.

It’s the mother of all life lessons, dear boys: all you need is love.
