December 26, 2011, Blogspot – The couple who understands each other’s love language – which is to say, understands how their mate best feels loved – will enjoy the marriage journey the most!
I use the principles of the 5 Love Languages in my premarital and relationship counseling, and I also enjoy speaking to groups and audiences on the value of applying these insights to your marriage and relationships.
Dr. Gary Chapman’s 5 Love Languages book, seminar, and its principals for improving and empowering marriage relationships, is a powerful tool for helping your mate know how to love you and for helping you feel loved.
Dr. Gary Chapman is a licensed marriage counselor and pastor who serves on a local church staff. We all have a “love tank” that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others. Dr. Chapman divides love languages into five categories:
1) Words of Affirmation
2) Quality Time
3) Receiving Gifts
4) Acts of Service
5) Physical Touch
