Spreading Love in the Classroom

Love is Your Legacy

When a 5th grade math teacher gives her students love notes, students feel loved, have a better attitude and do better in class.  Isn’t that amazing?

Here’s the teachers story:

Student Love Note

I’ve been writing love notes to my math kids. On the right side of the note I share a personal note to them. On the left side I give them  “A major award”  that I think up.

These kids are so excited when it’s  their turn to get them! I seriously see some students gazing at their love notes repeatedly.

The boy who got his first love note last week is carrying it with him always. He literally hated math at the beginning of the year and did a lot to get out of doing it (Ie:  bathroom clinic, mom checking him out, sighing deeply, etc.).

After the receiving his love note his attitude changed for the better.

Christine, Thank you so much for sharing this tradition with me. -Mrs. Tate, 5th grade teacher

See how much of a difference a love note makes.

We’re delighted to see the  changes that the Original Love Box tradition is making in families, schools, churches and companies.

Love is spreading in vast and unimaginable ways.  It takes all of us working together and as you can see, we’re making a huge difference!

Give the gift of love, one note at a time.



Love Heals!

“The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.” Hubert Humphrey

As Kim says, “I’m finding people are walking around and not feeling very appreciated or loved whether it’s with our kids or in our families or at work.” Like cracked glass, we can feel broken at times. We want to be put back together again and feel whole. We can heal our relationships and Kim shows us the way.

This video highlights Kim’s brave story. She shared words of affirmation and appreciation with not one or two but twelve people in her extended family! Can you imagine?

Kim stepped out in unconditional love because she felt strongly about helping each person in her immediate and extended family ‘find their voice’. Look at how Kim lights up as she describes how everyone reacted to her and everyone become closer.

If you or anyone you know comes from a family that felt broken, you know what a courageous story this is. Here’s to stopping the cycle of chaos and sharing unconditional love. Thank you Kim for your courageous efforts to be the ‘linchpin of love’ in your family.

“Love does a lot of healing good.” ~Kim Smith

Spirit of Love is Always Here

Deep within each of us is a desire to love and to be loved. So, how are you expressing your love?

Love can be expressed in a myriad of ways and when we share it, others feel more fulfilled. Think for a moment about these expressions of love; seeing the smile of a baby, feeling the caress of a loved one, sitting with a friend who listens attentively with her ears, eyes and heart, or sharing a meal with friends who truly understand us.

One of the most precious ways I feel love over and over again is by reading small handwritten notes that contain the love of each of my family members. For the past 15 years family and friends have written notes back and forth at Christmas time and I have every single one of them tucked away in special places. Some are in my forever ‘Christmas Love Box’, some are tucked away in my top drawer of a desk and other treasured keepsakes sit amongst my most valuable gems in a jewelry box.

Do you know what is awesome about these Love Notes? I can pull them out at any time and read heartfelt messages written by my husband, children, Mom, Dad, sister, and friends. I so enjoy finding the notes and reading them over and over again. Each time I read a note it transports me to another time and place and let’s me relive the spirit of love. The spirit of love is always here as close as a memory and a love note.
