Love Language - Gifts

Each day this week Dr. Gary Chapman joins us to give an overview of a different "Love Language".  Today we heard about "gifts":

Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous—so would the absence of everyday gestures.

Love Language - Words of Affirmation

We continue our conversation with Dr. Gary Chapman about the 5 Love Languages - today it's Words of Affirmation:

Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important—hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.

Love Language - Quality Time

What's your "love language"?  Dr. Gary Chapman, author of The 5 Love Languages, joins us each day this week to give insight into one of the 5 love languages (quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, physical touch).  Today Gary shared what it means to have "quality time" as your love language:

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.

Make sure you listen each morning this week to learn a new "language".  

Plus, we'll be giving away copies of the 5 Love Languages and get you qualified to win an all expense paid trip to "The Marriage You’ve Always Wanted" marriage conference led Dr. Gary Chapman!
