This Valentine's Day, we decided to take an introspective route on What Love Means to South Africans by inviting them to share their definition of love with the Journey With Mpho family. The featured guests define love using a variety of terms such as gratitude, intentional loving, respect, loyalty, maturity and understanding. 

On this day of love, we pray you experience love every single day. As your understanding and execution of self-love deepens may it draw you closer to the fruition of your heart's desires.
