Have you read the book, The Five Love Languages, by Gary Chapman? This book was really good for me to read a few years ago! And now, I’m on my second read through of the children’s version of this book.
If you have never figured out yours or your spouse’s love language, I highly recommend reading these books!! It can be really eye opening as to how we give and receive love.
I’m having a bit of trouble figuring out my children, though! Has anyone else had this problem? I’ve read through the book twice, and for now, my plan is to show love in their top 2-3 love languages most (cause I think I do have it narrowed down) and I’m continuing to pray for wisdom and discernment.
I just want my children to feel and *know* that I love them, ya know? My oldest is a challenge. She has been strong-willed since before she exited the womb. I admit that often times we clash. My middle child is very lovey, sensitive and easy to please. She also will share her feelings with me, usually. (Though I still don’t think I am for certain as to what her love language is either!!) So, with my oldest, sometimes I wish I had some sure-fire way to do something for her that I know, without a doubt, would show her that I love her.
So, I’m just curious if anyone has any suggestions for me? I know it’s not vital that I know their love language. But, I feel like it really, really improved our marriage and I was hoping it would help me as a mother, too, especially with my oldest daughter.
So, I’m curious, too…what is your love language? 🙂
Can you guess what mine is by reading my blog?
