Love Language - Physical Touch

We hope that during the course of this past week you've been able to determine your love language, but just as important - discover the love language of your spouse, your children ... really for anyone you love and care about.  Dr. Gary Chapman, author of the 5 Love Languages, joined us for the final time this week to discuss the love language "physical touch":

This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.

Keep listening for your chance to win a copy of Gary's book, plus get qualified to win a grand prize trip for you to attend the Marriage You've Always Wanted conference of your choice!

Event though my wife and I have attended Gary Chapman's marriage retreat (and everyone should go) it was until the other day listening to you that something clicked for me. My struggle to find happiness in my career can be tied to my love language, Words of Affirmation. It blew my mind to really see why I love aspects of my job and dread others, and more importantly where I need to seek for a job that will fulfill me.

I took the Love Language Quiz yesterday and sent it to my husband to do, thinking he was probably going to laugh at me for sending it. Well, it turns out we have the same Primary and Secondary Love Languages: Quality Time and Physical Touch! It was a wonderful surprise! We really don't care about gifts and really, it sounds like we just love being together, which is so true! It was great to find that we are focused on the same thing in our relationship! Thank you KLove!

What if none of the questions in the 30 second quiz "floats your boat"?  Do I need counseling?

I LOVED the love language quiz.  I've always wondered what mine were.  I guess I'm not very aware of myself!  Would you consider making up a quiz for kids, especially teens.  I have actually read the 5 Love Language book for teens and I still don't know what our son's is.

I really like what you guys are doing.  Thanks and keep it up!

I love listening to you talk about the love languages.  When my husband and I were dating, he asked me what my love language was.  This touched me deeply and has made our marriage stronger.  I understand his language and how he shows love.  After going through a horriable previous marriage, God has blessed me with a wonderful godly husband and I appreciate him even more.  I thank him for even the "little" things he does around the house, like the dishes, because I have never had that before.  He does these things because he knows that my love language is acts of service.  Thanks for being the godly radio station that you are and always helping us to deepen our walk with God.

My wife & me have been in a Sunday morning bible study with the 5 love languages back in the 1990's.
Something I found out is that before I even knowing
what they were I was using them to love her and communicate with her. The sad disturbing thing is that she did not respond to any of them in a positive fashion. And has since not gotten well you know better. To go threw this takes great faith in JESUS and still remain married to each other. JESUS is STRONGER than what I've seen and heard, his LOVE is greater!!! Thank you for being able to leave a comment. There is more to things than this.

I had heard of the love languages book before, but only recently decided to pick it up and read it.  My boyfriend of 11 years and I recently seperated...it's been hard without him and even harder being patient enough to trust that God knows what he's doing in our relationship.  Along with my praying, I turned to this book in an effort to equip myself to understand how I can receive more of what I need from my relationship and how I can give my boyfriend more of what he needs also.  I also picked up the love languages of God which I am sure is going to be even better!
