V-Day is around the corner. But, we’re not talking about Valentines day. A lot of us grew up building valentines boxes for our school’s Valentines party and continued to do the same with our own children. Valentines Day is a time to celebrate one of the most beautiful gifts we have. LOVE. 1 Peter 4:8 tells us “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” Valentines Day is beautiful to celebrate. V-Day is and empowering way to love. To stand in love against that which is wrong. V-Day is a global movement and series of consciousness-raising events to end violence against girls and women.

One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime.
