Valentine’s Day encourages us to love the people in our lives. But how well do we love ourselves? The flaws we accept (or even love) in our spouses, friends, and family are often hard to accept in ourselves. This Valentine’s Day, we’re focusing on loving the you you are. After all, you are fearfully and wonderfully made!
