Welcome Back! Now that we have identified our Love Languages and explored The 5 Love Languages; Acts of Service, Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Receiving Gifts and Physical Touch, we can wrap up this series with The Love Language Challenge!
This has been a fun series to explore; I hope you have all been able to identify yours and your spouses Love Language. If you are still struggling to know which one is highest on your list I highly recommend that you read Gary Chapman’s book The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts. In chapter 9 he goes over some common questions and challenges with identifying your Language.
As I’ve been writing this series it has stood out to me that we need to be asking our spouse what they want and need. We also need to be communicating our own wants and needs to our significant other. EXPRESS YOURSELVES! We need to stop waiting for others to read our minds and just be honest and upfront.
It’s also important to know that you don’t have to have the same Love Language as your spouse to have a successful marriage. You just need to learn to speak in each other’s Love Language even if it doesn’t come naturally to you. When an action doesn’t come naturally to you and you choose to do it anyways it is a greater expression of love. Gary Chapman says, “If we learn to meet each other’s deep emotional need to feel loved, and choose to do it, the love we share will be exciting beyond anything we’re ever felt.”
Now for the Love Language Challenge! Watch this short video for an explanation.
