One of my favorite college courses in undergraduate school was "Interpersonal Communication." This class was so instrumental in my way of thinking as it related to my own relationships with the people around me. New social media platforms were emerging, sapping up countless hours and sucking its users into a world that led to an isolation from their surroundings which caused them to miss out on things that are happening in the here and now.
I can recall thinking about the home in which my sisters and I had been raised. We had one television in our family room where we watch wholesome tv programs and movies, one house phone that our loved ones called on and ate homecooked meals at our kitchen table every night. My parents instilled in us the importance of open communication, quality time with loved ones and perhaps the most important lesson, to value and nurture our relationships with God our family and our friends.
This book, God Speaks Your Love Language by Gary Chapman, helped put into perspective how the Lord speaks to me. Chapman provides sage wisdom and deep insights in each chapter. His background as a psychologist, his experience as a seasoned Christian, and his success as a Marriage and Family Life consultant, offers the reader a unique perspective on how we feel and receive love first from God and subsequently from others.
My process for reading this book was to first take the Love Language Quiz to discover what my Love Language(s) were and then I read the book from cover to cover. This was such an easy and enjoyable read!
