What Does Love Mean to a Four-Year-Old? | John Mark Ministries A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, “What does love mean?” The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.

As he tells us, "Most of them are old illustrations that I redrew to match the style I was looking for and the meaning of the corresponding quote. You can pick up these prints over at Hoong's shop.
