How to Show Love More Effectively

April 1, 2008

If you would like to find out how to be more loving to the other people in your life, try reading the book “The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman.  It explains how each person feels loved in different ways.  For instance individuals may receive and feel love more in the form :-

1.  Words of Affirmation – specific words of praise and appreciation.

2.  Quality Time – spending quality time with the person

3.  Giving of Gifts  – like giving flowers for no reason

4.  Acts of Service –  like washing the dishes or mowing the lawn for someone   or

5.  Physical Touch  –  like hugs and kisses.

It can also be a combination of a few of these items. 

Which love language do you prefer?

NB.  This book is available at most Christian bookstores
