Even the strongest marriages can use some help every now and then.  We received a copy of The 5 Love Languages for Men by Dr. Gary Chapman to review and Chefy immediately started reading.

About the Book:

Falling in love is easy. Keeping the sizzle in your marriage? That's more like grilling the perfect steak-it takes time, attention, and some secret spices. Mastering your wife's heart doesn't have to be complicated, but it will take a little effort. Good intentions alone will not get the job done.

Gary Chapman gears this edition of his #1 New York Times multi-million best seller to your needs, challenges, and interests as a husband. What really fills your wife's love tank? (It may not be what you think.) How can you let her know what you're thinking and feeling? What can you do to make sex more meaningful and pleasurable for you both? This book offers a straightforward approach that will equip you for relational success.

Discover the secret that has already transformed millions of relationships worldwide. As you learn this simple, yet profound, concept for communicating love, you'll be more confident and courageous in the ways that matter most. Really!

"When you express your love for your wife using her primary love language, it's like hitting the sweet spot on a baseball bat or golf club. It just feels right-and the results are impressive." -Gary Chapman

Chefy's thoughts:

Initially, I was a little unsure of what to expect.  After the first few pages though, I knew this was something that I needed to read.  Every person has their own love language, and when you determine what that language is for your spouse, things just seem easier.  I'll let you in on the secret, the 5 Love Languages that Gary Chapman talks about in this book are:
Words of Affirmation
Acts of Service
Receiving Gifts
Quality Time
Physical Touch

As I read through the book, I began to understand more about which of these languages "spoke" to Shelly.  We have been married for 13 years and have a wonderful marriage, but every marriage can use some help with communicating.  I honestly wish this book had been available before we got married.  It would have helped me a lot in the early years.  Shelly was a lot different than the other girls I had dated, and her love language was different.  I have learned that now, and I encourage other men to read this book and learn which love language "speaks" to their spouse.

I think that anything to help enhance communication would be a great resource to have. My husband might be more likely to read this as it's geared towards men.
