Love Do's Out and About

"LOVE DO'S" are specific commitments to doing love.  These commitments are planned opportunities to practice Love, and we do them anonymously wherever possible. "LOVE DO'S" are not related to our feelings; "LOVE DO'S" are actions that reflect the nature of love. Love is patient and kind, it forgives and perseveres. Love is hopeful, celebrates goodness, rejoices when others succeed and is not arrogant or puffed up.

The Rules

  1. Commit to thirty days of "LOVE DO'S", one per day. 
  2. Write the "LOVE DO" you select for each day on a planner or calendar for the next thirty days. You can repeat a "LOVE DO", but try to challenge yourself with variety or by choosing "LOVE DO'S" in places or situations you feel negatively toward. 
  3. You must not tell anyone about your "LOVE DO" commitment.
  4. Be authentic and sincere; you do not have to feel loving to do love, but an honest desire and a sincere message is a must.
  5. Wherever possible, make the "LOVE DO" anonymous. 
  6. You can choose "LOVE DO'S" that are not listed; the list provides a few ideas that could work for a variety of people. If you create "LOVE DO'S", be sure to add them to your planner ahead of time. Keep it simple and be anonymous whenever possible.
  7. Keep a journal. Make notes about your experiences each day. Note the way each "LOVE DO" made you feel, any impact on others you noticed, changes in your attitudes, feelings about specific circumstances, people or relationships overall.


  • Put your shopping cart back inside, plus a few extra.

  • Leave a paper towel hanging out of the dispenser for the next person.

  • Smile and say hello to someone who appears grumpy or sad.

  • If someone does a nice job (cashier, tollbooth worker, bank teller, mechanic, server, etc.) tell them what they did that you appreciated and how it made a difference to you.

  • Purposely look for someone unlovable to love. If someone offends you, make a commitment to ask God to bless that individual, group or organization with prosperity, joy, peace and every good thing you would want for yourself, and Thy will be done. Say the prayer in the very moment you feel offended or upset and repeat it until you are no longer aggravated by the person, group or event.

  • Hold the door for a person who is moving slowly.

  • Pay for the person behind you in line (toll, oil change, gas, groceries, meal, purchases at a department store, doctor's office or pharmacy for a prescription).

  • Ask someone how their day is going and sincerely listen.

  • Leave some quarters, a $1.00, $5.00 or $10.00 bill in a shopping cart, public restroom, or other public area without anyone knowing and say a prayer that it will find the perfect new owner.

  • Put your neighbor’s empty trash can back in its’ proper spot, without being seen, clean the snow off their car or shovel their sidewalk or buy them a gift certificate.
