If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. (I Corinthians 13:3)
Valentine’s Day is almost here and lots of people are feeling the love this week. Though we may feel the love, some of us don’t always express our love to our spouses, family, and friends in ways they truly understand.
If you’re a bit tongued tied when it comes to love, you might want to learn more about Gary Chapman. His Love Language books have and continue to be best sellers offering wisdom on how to communicate with your loved ones effectively. Titles include The Love Languages of God, The Five Love Languages of Teenagers, The Five Love Languages of Children, The Five Love Languages of Singles, and The Five Love Languages of Apology.
Last February, JT and I sat down together and to discuss The Five Love Languages and each of us discovered our personal Love Language. Since then, we’ve tried to become more skilled at expressing our love to each other in the most effective way.
To get a sneak peak at your personal Love Language, check out the Love Languages Test then read The Five Love Languages to learn even more.
