  • Dr. Gary Chapman — Bestselling Author of The 5 Love Languages
    Written more than two decades ago and with more than 9.5 million copies in print, The 5 Love Languages continues to help strengthen relationships around the world as couples learn to communicate better by speaking each other’s “love language”. Based on the simple concept that each one of us has a primary love language, which when spoken fills up our emotional “love tanks,” in his book, Dr. Chapman helps couples identify, understand, and speak their spouse’s primary love language:
    • quality time
    • words of affirmation
    • gifts
    • acts of service
    • physical touch
    Now updated to reflect the complexities of relationships in today’s world, the new edition of The 5 Love Languages also contains a profile for a couple that pinpoints the reader’s primary love language, what it means, and how it can be used to connect with a spouse with intimacy and fulfillment. “How do we meet each other’s deep emotional need to feel loved? If we can learn that and choose to do it, then the love we share will be exciting beyond anything we ever felt when we were infatuated,” says Dr. Chapman.

    *Dr. Gary Chapman is the director of Marriage and Family Life Consultants, Inc. and travels the world presenting seminars. His radio programs air on more than 400 stations.
