I really work hard every week at making the Tips as short as possible but Happiness is finding a Tip that is truly Tiny.
The Tip today is more of a call to action. Are you up for it?
Here we go.
Call or text a family member today and tell them one thing you are truly grateful for concerning your relationship with them.
You can blow it off if you want, but you know this would really make someone’s day if you go for it. Reach out to mom, dad, sister, brother, spouse, daughter, son or in-law. I’m going to call my little brother.
If you can’t do it right now, put a reminder in your phone to do it later today.
Reach out and bless someone in your life today.

Do your best to get your kids involved with going to Christian camps. Be it retreats or a summer camp, God has chosen to really bless camp time.
Our favorite camp, Camp Lurecrest in Lake Lure NC, has a great saying about summer camp:
“A Week Can Change A Life!”
This is so true. I surrendered my life to God at camp and then spent the majority of my life speaking at camps telling students how Jesus Christ changed my life!
I have seen thousands and thousands of children and teens get serious about their relationship with the Lord at camp. Powerful!
God is still on the move and changing lives at camp today.
Find a Christian camp near you or call your local church to help you get pointed in the right direction. Start your kids on the great adventure!
If you find yourself short financially, most camps have scholarships and they are glad to help out if you need it.

There is nothing we can do or say to get God to love us more than He already does right now.
God’s love is perfect. He loves you the maximum amount.
There are no good deeds or good works we can do so that He will accept us.
Because of what Jesus did when He lived a perfect life, died in our place and rose from the dead; Christ made the way for us to be accepted through the forgiveness of our sins once and for all.
We don’t do good so that God will love us, we do good because God loves us. There is a big difference.
One is striving to be accepted. The other is knowing God’s love and having peace.
A lot of Christians waste a lot of their lives trying to get God to love them more. A lot of Christians waste a lot of their time trying to get God to like them more.
He already cares about you the maximum amount.
Do good deeds to say, “Thank you” to God for the way He loves you.
Let our lives be filled with good deeds as gifts to our Savior for all He has done for us.
“Thank you Heavenly Father for loving us as much as you love your Son Jesus…The maximum amount!”
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
