Quality Time, Acts of Service, Gifts, Physical Touch, and Words of Affirmation.

For Stephanie and I (Alex), this book has helped us tremendously. Basically;  whenever you are not intentionally speaking the love language of the other person, it is like speaking German to a person who speaks Mandarin.

My love languages are Quality Time and Words of Affirmation and Stephanie’s love languages are Quality Time and Physical Touch. By not reading the book first, I did not initially understand that within our Quality Time love languages, there were different dialects. After reading the book I began to understand why my version of Quality Time was different than hers and how I could understand what her needs were and meet them. She wanted Quality Conversations during our Quality Time and I just wanted to be together. By being intentional and both of us being open and communicating, we began to understand how we are different.

We all have a love tank and we both ask each other all the time how we can fill it.

While I was at work on the road, I deprived Stephanie of both of her love languages because they both basically require my presence. We found ways to connect and spend quality time together. She made a list of 10 things that would help her feel more loved and I did everything I could to check off things on that list. Some of the things were uncomfortable for me, BUT GUESS WHAT!!?!! IT WAS WORTH IT because I value our relationship. It is so powerful when both partners die to self.  I encourage everyone reading this to learn more and to also share this with others. How many people do you hear complain about their relationships? This is proven to work!!

We encourage you to open the lines of communication up together and also make your top 10 lists of things that could make you feel loved.

Together, we have 5 kids. 16, 12, 9, 8, and 7. Each kid has a unique personality and they all have their own love language. This quiz and these books have helped us understand the most effective ways to make our children feel loved. When our children’s love tanks are full their behavior is better, they are more cooperative and productive and they are more loving to others.

 

We can get a whole movement of people with full love tanks and make this a much better world! Can you picture this vision where everyone is thinking about others and doing things to help others more often and that just becoming an endless cycle?

WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR THE POSSIBILITIES OF WHAT NEW INFORMATION BEING APPLIED CAN DO FOR THE LIVES OF A FEW AND HOW THAT CAN SPILL OVER INTO THE LIVES OF THE MANY!!!!!

We all are going to end up somewhere, we encourage you to do the little things that will lead you to where you want to be on PURPOSE!
