Marriage should be based on love, right? But does it seem as though you and your spouse are speaking two different languages? New York Times bestselling author Dr. Gary Chapman guides couples in identifying, understanding, and speaking their spouse’s primary love language—quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, or physical touch.

By learning the five love languages, you and your spouse will discover your unique love languages and learn practical steps in truly loving each other. Chapters are categorized by love language for easy reference, and each one ends with specific, simple steps to express a specific language to your spouse and guide your marriage in the right direction. A newly designed love languages assessment will help you understand and strengthen your relationship. You can build a lasting, loving marriage together.

Gary Chapman hosts a nationally syndicated daily radio program called A Love Language Minute that can be heard on more than 150 radio stations as well as the weekly syndicated program Building Relationships with Gary Chapman, which can both be heard on fivelovelanguages.com.

This review is from: The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts (Paperback)
The main idea behind this book is that just as people have unique personality preferences, we all have unique preferences for what we find satisfying and motivating when it comes to love. Your love language is the way that you most feel loved and cared for. The relationship expert behind the book arranges the book into the five love languages, and provides quizzes to help you determine which language you are:

– Words of Affirmation:
If this is your love language, you feel most cared for when your partner is open and expressive in telling you how wonderful they think you are, how much they appreciate you, etc. Basically, they find ways to remind you that their world is a better place because you are in it.

– Acts of Service:
If your partner offering to watch the kids so you can go to the gym (or relieving you of some other task) gets your heart going, then this is your love language.

– Affection:
This love language is just as it sounds. A warm hug, a kiss, snuggling, and sexual intimacy make you feel most loved when this is your love language. Touch is very important to you.

– Quality Time:
This love language is about being together with your partner, fully present and engaged in the activity at hand, no matter how trivial.

– Gifts:
The final love language is centered on the idea that your partner taking the time to think of you and give you a gift, no matter how small, is what makes you feel loved and appreciated.

The problem is most people love how they want to be loved, and that doesn’t tend to align with how their partner wants to be loved. So, you have to learn to speak your partner’s love language. The author also believes that focusing intently on speaking the love languages will rekindle relationships where people don’t even seem to like each other anymore.

Dr. Gary Chapman should be nominated for something …..HUGE. This book is a life changer. No, a love changer. Ok, it’s both. What hit me right away is it made perfect sense. Then, to top that, by putting the information to actual use, I was able to see real results just like he had written about in the book. After assessing my wife as having the “acts of service” love language, I decided to test out how she would react. I’m usually up and out the door to work before she gets up. I know she enjoys a cup of coffee in the morning and the sooner the better. So, one morning I set up the coffee pot and put a sticky note on it stating, “Just turn me on.” She called me at the office and went on and on about how sweet that was and how I scored big points. The guys in the adjoining cubicles were baffled at my side of the conversation. When I told them about the call, and about the book, they thought it worth looking into a bit more.
I’ve given over a dozen copies to friends and family. I just gave one to my nephew who was recently married. I even sent one to a guy I met on a plane who told me he was engaged. Without exception, people come back and tell me how The 5 Love Languages have made such a positive difference in their relationships. This stuff should be taught in school.

Book Description
Publication Date: November 2, 2011
Jesus said, “You must love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” – Luke10:27

If one had to choose a single verse in the Bible that is a formula for successful living, this would be the one to live by, says Joyce Meyer: love God, yourself and others – in that order.

Many Christians get mixed up about love. They know they should love God and others, but many do not understand that loving oneself is one-third of God’s equation. They mistakenly think of it as selfishness or self-aggrandizement.

Joyce Meyer believes that this misconception is one of the greatest pitfalls in the Christian journey. Loving oneself in a balanced, healthy manner is essential in order to have healthy relationships with God, ourselves and others.

Drawing upon her previous work and teaching series as well as original devotions, the author of Power Thoughts examines the three loves that we’ve been commanded to exhibit.

This review is from: Love Out Loud: 365 Devotions for Loving God, Loving Yourself, and Loving Others (Hardcover)
I have several of Joyce Meyers devotionals and books. This is a very good devotional. To me Joyce can minister to you in such a way that you say “I get it!!” She is practical and full of knowledge and this shines through in this devotional. I would recommend this to anyone.

This review is from: Love Out Loud: 365 Devotions for Loving God, Loving Yourself, and Loving Others (Hardcover)
This is a very practical book and best value can be got if it is read diligently everyday. And not just read, but read and contemplated upon. I found that a daily slow reading, followed by reflection on how the day’s reading could be put into practice in my everyday life, brought me incremental peace of mind, happiness, dramatically improved productivity and my relationships.
