Linda Goodnight here revisiting a popular topic. If you’ve read Gary Chapman’s The Five Love Languages, or even if you’ve heard about it, you probably know the general "languages": Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Gifts, Quality time, Physical touch. I have to confess that even after reading the book and taking the quiz, I still couldn’t identify my own until my daughter-in-law pointed out a specific thing I do for those I love. I cook for them. Boy, do I cook for them. There is nothing I love better than for my family to come over and let me feed them. This discovery made me realize that the five love languages as defined by Chapman are general topics. Your love language, like mine, may be a specific behavior encompassed by one of the general topics. Because let me tell you, my "acts of service" do not extend to cleaning houses or washing cars. Just cooking.
If you’ve never done so, hope over to this site and take the love language quiz. Then share. What's your specific way of showing love? (These could be great ideas for developing future book characters!)
Linda Goodnight was too busy cooking for the holidays to remember she had a book releasing in the month of January. Check out an excerpt from Rancher’s Refuge, book one in Linda’s heartwarming new series, Whisper Falls.
