Week 8- Love Language

Learn his love language. – 
Everyone has a love language. The way you perceive love is often different from the way your spouse perceives love. Does he like words of affirmation, or does he respond better when you give him gifts? Whatever his love language is – learn it and USE IT. A few weeks ago my Pastor's wife did a study on the Love Languages by Gary Chapman and there are so many types, we need to learn that about our spouse..
a) Words of affirmation
b) Acts of Service 
c) Quality Time
d) Physical touch 

Mine is: Quality time and words of affirmation. 

Proverbs 19:14

Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD.

  1. I checked out that book from the library, and have been meaning to pick up a copy for myself. I'd also like to get the one that's geared towards kids. I'm not married, but I'll definitely have to take a look at the other articles.

  2. This book helped me understand people, specifically my husband, so much. I count myself blessed because his love language is acts of service. So, he notices when I vacuum… one day, he got a new box of Kleenex from under the bathroom cabinet and as he opened it, he said, "I am thankful there is always a supply of Kleenex in the house." LOL
