The Five Love Languages
(based on the book by Dr. Gary Chapman)
* Do you feel unloved by your spouse?
* Would you like to know how to achieve a loving relationship that lasts?
* If you are single, would you like to better connect with others in your life?
* If you are dating, is it going as well as it could be?
* Would you like to communicate more effectively with others?
* Have you ever considered leaving your spouse?
For Married Couples: In the Five Love Languages DVD, Dr. Gary Chapman, marriage and relationship counselor for over 35 years, shares the secret to marital love that lasts, once the honeymoon is over. Learn the philosophy behind The Five Love Languages and how to apply these principles to your relationship. Dr. Chapman offers tips to better express your spouse’s love language so you can provide each other with exactly what’s needed to be fulfilled emotionally.
For Everyone: According to Dr. Chapman, there are only five fundamental ways to express love emotionally. People characteristically express love by extending their own ‘love language’ onto another and this is when communication breakdown can happen. In many relationships individuals do not speak the same love language, often resulting in empty ‘love tanks’. But you can learn how to change that.
The Program: Each week we will view a DVD, which will be followed by group discussion. You will learn to identify your own primary love language. Then you will enjoy discovering the love language of the people in your life: your parents, children, siblings, friends, co-workers. Whatever the relationship, having a full love tank allows you to experience the joy of connecting, expressing love and truly feeling loved in return.
