Our relationships are precious, valuable treasures from heaven and we should handle them carefully. Here are some tips to help you build strong family relationships in your home.

(1)  Leave sweet notes around the house as little reminders to the people you love that they are valuable to you. 

(2)
  Let your words be uplifting. Recognize the weight your words carry and the influence you have on those closest to you.

(3)
  Don't put your love on auto-pilot. Take time for those you love. Express your feelings with hugs, kisses and smiles.

(4)
  Make every effort to keep strong connections with your family. Be full of mercy and build bridges to the hearts of those you love.  

(5) 
Be willing to make adjustments. Adapt your plans and ways to show respect and bring more harmony to your home. Minor adjustments can make major differences. 

(6) 
Disappointments are for a season but our relationships are for a lifetime.

(7)
  Be your best each day. Plant seeds of blessing for your children and future generations.
