  • Did You Know: The first text message was sent in Europe in 1993. A mere later, the average teenager communicates primarily by text, spending 1 hour and 35 minutes each day sending or receiving nearly 4,000 texts. No matter what the form of interaction, some core truths still need to be communicated: Kids still need to know that their parents love them, no matter what. Wives still need to know that their husbands love them, no matter what. Husbands still need to know that their wives respect them, no matter what. And we all need to remember how much God loves us, no matter what. Find a creative way to communicate these core messages to your family members and friends this week, possibly even by text!
