Candle lives by the “The Law of Giving”. It is achieved when one is simply a candle, by definition, in 4 ways:  

  1. Give your light. Your true authentic self. When you do you give others permission to do the same.

  2. Protect your light. Give gratitude in all things. When you do, God gives you more.

  3. Give back. Your purpose as a candle is to burn yourself to give others light. Never forget who gave to you.  

  4. Shine your light. Love every moment of this amazing life God has given you- stay lit!
