Show BB007 Quick Guide

In the life of a busy mom it’s very easy for your relationship with your husband to become very lackluster because of the years of putting so much focus on the family logistics.  How do you get that excitement back when you’re still busy?


The answer is to make small changes in how you show love that make big differences in how you and your spouse feel about each other.  These tips are based on a book by Gary Chapman called The 5 Love Languages.


He proposes that there are five ways in which people feel love:

  • Words of Affirmation 
  • Acts of Service
  • Receiving gifts
  • Quality Time
  • Physical touch

We all have a tendency to show our spouse love the way we need to be loved.  Many times, this is not the way he needs to be loved and vice versa.  If you can correctly identify each other’s love languages, you can better meet each other’s needs and bring back that spark to keep the excitement flowing.


Listen to the podcast for an explanation of the love languages and how you can get your needs met while also meeting your husband’s needs.
