Sunday Inspiration: Books

Over the next couple of weeks I thought I would share a few books that I have read lately. Most of them pertain to being a Godly woman and/or strengthening your marriage. I am the first to admit that I am only human and continuously fail miserably in both of these areas. I'm sure that you will agree with me that we all need all the help we can get, and thus I though I would share some of the books that have encouraged me.

The Five Love Languages, by Gary Chapman, explains how each of has a "love language" that must be met in order for us to feel truly loved. According to Chapman, there are five love languages are: Quality Time, Gifts, Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch and Acts of Service. The chances are that you and your significant other do not have the same love language. We tend to express love though our own gift(s), but instead we need to understand what gift(s) those around us have and need in order to feel loved.

This is a book that I Bryan and I have read together. I personally feel that reading with your husband draws the two of you even closer on an intimate level. With this book, we have been able to talk about both of our gifts and how we can strive to be a better wife and husband.

  3. This is one of my very favorite books, and in fact, I just took it over to a girlfriend's house last week to lend it to her! I love that it applies to much more than just the husband/wife or girlfriend/boyfriend relationships ... I feel it has helped me in my relationships with friends and family members. Truly a must-read!

  4. My girlfriend just went to a seminar this past weekend and MET GARY CHAPMAN! How funny! I have the book on my to-do list. RIght now my fiancé and I are working through Love & Respect which I highly recommend to any couple. Dating, engaged, married!
