Love, on purpose!

DSC02801 300x200 Love, on purpose!

I read an absolutely fantastic book called ‘The Five Love Languages’ a couple of years ago. The Author, Gary Chapman,  puts forward the theory that we each give and receive love in one of 5 ways:

  • Acts of service
  • Physical Touch
  • Receiving of Gifts
  • Words of Affirmation
  • Quality Time

My primary way of receiving love is ‘Acts of Service’ and my daughter knows this. So, today, she cut up the beautiful plate of fruit in the picture and came and gave it to me for lunch!

Now, the beautiful point to this story is that she doesn’t get the big deal about ‘Acts of Service’ because her Love Language is totally different to mine. However, she made the effort to love me in a way that I like to be loved – and it worked a treat.

Make the effort to love people in the way they like to be loved today. Take the free quiz at and start ‘loving, on purpose’!
