Discover Your Love Language

Discovering your love language might sound perplexing; as the idea of love having a language seems impossible. Love is Love…. right? Let me explain:

The month of February is coming to a close as valentines seems to consume the month of February with hearts and chocolate (which we love), but its understanding what exactly we are celebrating. Everyone, whether single or married, all have a love language that defines what makes us feel complete. Keep reading to find out what love means to you and your spouse. We hope to challenge you and your spouse to commit to taking a quiz linked below and find what makes your love tank grow. Loving someone, especially your spouse, is hard work when you do not understand how to love him/her. We guarantee this test will change your relationship for the best! You got this!

So we hope that you took on the challenge. Wasn’t it interesting? When we first took the test, it gave us more clarity on what kind of love we needed from each other. Isn’t it interesting that what fills our love tank could be the very least thing that fills our spouse’s love tank? Lets break this down so we have a clear perspective of how this quiz can benefit your relationship. When two people come together we have to understand we are two entities merging to be one. That means baggage from our past, stages in life that developed who we are today and knowing how we want to be loved. 

Think about it for a second. Maybe one of you requires words of affirmation, and the other needs physical touch. Not understanding this can cause a disconnect. 

Meeting the expectations of our spouse’s love language requires a level of sacrifice. Their needs may not equate to your needs. The love language test will give you the ability to learn how to love each other best. As a young couple, we struggled with this in our marriage. Over the years, as we evolved, we’ve had to retake the test because our needs can change overtime. We all need love. If we can understand how to love someone, our love tank will always be full and we won’t feel like we are missing something. 

1 John 4:7 (NIV) says, “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” Love is a powerful thing. As we approach the end of February, let’s bring love with us the rest of the year.

Have a blessed week! Please comment and share this post!
