Redefining Our Love Languages.
Twelve Years later
One of the best dates nights we've had in awhile was at home after the kids were in bed. We cooked up a yummy meal, snuggled by the fire and dove into our (recently completed) 5 Love Language quizzes. We first took one of these quizzes in 2006, about a year into marriage. 12 years later, we had a hunch things had changed a little.
The 5 Love Languages Quiz*
We exchanged results and worked through each question asking the why behind the response. Specifically, how could we 'speak' the desired love languages in our everyday.
For example, I already knew Josh preferred "Words of Affirmation," so in the past I would write long love letters. What I learned from our discussion that night, is a text after an important day at work speaks even louder. BOOM TOWN!
From that conversation, I now have a list of six simple ways I can better love and encourage Josh throughout the week!
