About Be Love. Do Good.

Ever notice how a simple thing can change your life? A simple lunch box note changed ours. A few years ago, my husband wrote a timely message to our son that said: BE STRONG, PROTECT THE WEAK, LOVE EVERYONE. Those words have become our family mission to the world. Each week on Be Love. Do Good. podcast, we will be sharing practical ways to live out this message. 

You’ll hear tips and ideas, encouraging words, and stories of others who are being love and doing good in their communities in hopes to inspire YOU and your family to love in your own ways!

Each week we will be challenged to get out of our comfort zones and love others who are different from us. We truly believe knowing others helps us love well and that any act of love can change the life of another. Join us as we take practical steps to teach our children and families to be love and do good!
