5 Love Languages

A big "thank you" to Dr. Gary Chapman, author of the 5 Love Languages, who took us deeper each day this week on a different "love language". 

If there have been times in your life when you haven't felt loved, it might be because you don't know your love language.  Equally important is discovering the love language of those you love.  To find out your love language, take the quiz!

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!

Britt Nicole's love language

One of our favorite friend's of the show - Britt Nicole - joined us this morning.  She has a HUGE heart for God!  We worked with Britt to determine her "love language" (see below) and heard her perform her new song "Walk on Water" (click here to listen to that song).


Britt Nicole's 5 Love Languages Profile!

Her Scores:

9       Words of Affirmation
10      Quality Time
1       Receiving Gifts
4       Acts of Service
6       Physical Touch

The highest score indicates your primary love language (the highest score is 12). It’s not uncommon to have two high scores, although one language does have a slight edge for most people. That just means two languages are important to you.

The lower scores indicate those languages you seldom use to communicate love and which probably don’t affect you very much on an emotional level. 

Now that you know your love language, here’s some more information you might not have realized about it, and why certain behaviors affect you more than others.

Your Love Language:  Quality Time
In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there–with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby–makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.

You may have scored certain ones of the love languages more highly than others, but do not dismiss those other languages as insignificant. Your family may express love in those ways, and it will be helpful to you to understand this about him.

In the same way, it will benefit your loved ones to know your love language and express their affection for you in ways that you interpret as love. Every time you speak each other’s language, you score emotional points with one another. Of course, this isn’t a game with a scorecard! The payoff of speaking each other’s love language is a greater sense of connection. This translates into better communication, increased understanding, and, ultimately, improved love.
