Love Letters From God

If you were an incarcerated youth, what could be more inspiring than knowing that in spite of all the bad choices you have made, there are people in the community who still have faith in you, are cheering you on, and that Jesus loves you?

That’s what we want to tell the kids at Echo Glen this Valentine’s Day – WE CARE and Jesus Loves them!  We hope to give 10+ hand-made Valentine’s cards/letters to each of the 110 boys and girls.  These can be made by small groups, youth groups, or compassionate individuals. The cards can include

  • Personal notes of encouragement
  • Fun jokes and riddles
  • Uplifting quotes and scriptures such as:  Jesus Loves you; You are beautiful in God’s eyes; God loves each of us as if there were only one of us-St. Augustine.  All should be encouraging and inspirational – most of these kids have very low self-esteem.
  • Optional: small candies (nothing on sticks like popsicles)

To participate, please let us know how many handmade cards your group would like to make.

Hope you can help share God’s love for these kids through Valentines!  Please email susan@smilepower.org if your group would like to participate.
