As we enter the month of December, I have decided to revamp our process of writing letters to all 8 of the Compassion International kids in our family. In the past, I would sit down twice a month and write to all of our children on the same day. Now that our family has grown to eight children, I worried that the monumental task of writing eight letters in one day would keep me from sending out packages twice a month. This month, I am going to try to do it a little differently.
This morning, I pulled out a pack of colorful printer paper with balloons and cheerful stripes. I copied the Compassion stationary onto it. (For the 6 children we’ve already heard from, I just copy the paper that Compassion sends with their letters. For our two newest girls, I use the printable stationary that can be found here. ) My plan is to write to four of our children every week and mail the big manilla envelope with 8 letters and goodies out every other week. With the stationary for each child already printed and stored in my Household Binder that always sits on my counter next to the laptop, I will be able to easily sit and write a letter as time allows.

From the website:
What is Father's Love Letter?
Father's Love Letter is a compilation of Bible verses from both the Old & New Testaments that are presented in the form of a love letter from God to you.
Each line in the Father's Love Letter message is paraphrased, which means we have taken each Scripture's overall message and summarized it as a single phrase to best express it's meaning.
The link above has this Love Letter available in printable for in 93 different languages. It would be a GREAT addition to your next letter to your child!
