We hope and pray you found some useful tools in the past couple weeks and are well on the way to speaking your sweetie’s love language fluently. We would be thrilled to hear about any lightbulb moments or helpful conversations you and your significant other had after reviewing each language!
Understanding how Eric feels most loved (physical touch) has helped me nurture his heart more effectively than if I based my approach on what I need (quality time). When he comes home after a long day, I know he needs a gentle backrub. He would appreciate a gift and an elaborate home cooked meal, but nothing tells him, “I love you and I am here for you” like a backrub.
After our recent trip to Denver, I felt as though my love tank was more full than it has been since our long weekend in Harrisonburg a few years ago. We were together constantly, had some good talks, and experienced some new adventures together. Nothing says “I love you” to me more than him spending time with me and enjoying it!
It Is Time for Another Blessings Friday!!!
Eric and I hope the springtime weather is treating everyone well and that you and your special someone are gearing up for an unforgettable summer. What is coming your way this year? A wedding? An engagement? Simply looking forward to getting to know your boyfriend or girlfriend better? A dream vacation? Graduation? Some much needed relaxation?
Whatever is coming your way in the next few months, we hope you find many blessings and we want to be one of them!

How Has Understanding Love Languages Impacted Your Relationships?
Understanding love languages is not only beneficial in romantic relationships, but they profit friendships and family relationships too. I know my mom appreciates quality time and we enjoy “cooking together” over FaceTime. One Thursday, when I was a teenager, I vacuumed the house for my dad so he would not have to do it when he got home from work. When he walked in and saw a freshly vacuumed floor, he became giddy and his entire countenance changed. One of my dearest friends is always giving me small gifts and I enjoy sending her random gifts as well. Another of my friends needs words of affirmation to keep her engine running.
We are a unique and complex people created by the God of the universe and in His image. Can you imagine how boring this world would be if we were all the same? Just as the mountains, trees, rivers, canyons, and varying shades of color in the sky provide us with variety and constant beauty, the differences in our personalities, natures, and needs creates a beautiful collage. Sometimes our differences cause us angst, but we can adopt another perspective. We can choose to see our differences as a blessing and put forth the effort to live together in an understanding and celebratory way.
We hope you will enter to win your own copy of The Five Love Languages and continue your study until you are an expert! Your knowledge will not only be an asset to your relationships, but it will put you in a position to help others!
