Love Language

 What is your spouse's love language? If you don't know the answer to this question, please consider reading The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. Kyle and I were made to read this for a health class in an undergraduate health course and I am so glad. I am very aware of Kyle's love language and now that by complimenting him (Words of Affirmation) his love tank will be full for days.

What is a way that you can fill up your spouse's love tank today?

Words of Affirmation: send a simple text to let them know a quality that you love.

Physical Touch: Give them an extra long hug or initiate some alone time together

Receiving Gifts: Stop by Safeway on your way home and buy a simple bouquet of flowers for no reason at all.

Quality Time: Put the kids to bed early and snuggle up on the couch together to read scripture or perhaps talk about your day. It is amazing how many days might go by before you make this special time for one another.

Acts of Service: (My strongest love language) Go out of the norm on this one...If you don't normally do the laundry consider folding a load or even better help him/her put the laundry away.

Don't let your marriage get into a rut. Date your spouse. Make them feel loved. Don't complain about something that you aren't willing to put the work into yourself.
