I am sure that most of y'all have heard about The 5 Love Languages. If not, it is a book that helps couples figure how they express their love. Everyone shows love differently, and this book helps you understand the different methods. I have read it several times, and think it is really helpful and insightful. A few weeks ago I saw that there was a new version coming out.
The description reads;
"Marriage is hard enough for the everyday civilian. But imagine marriage when you're separated by thousands of miles . . . when one of you daily faces the dangers of combat . . . while the other shoulders all the burden of homefront duties. Add to that unpredictable schedules, frequent moves, and the challenge of reintegration, and it's no wonder military marriages are under stress. Husbands and wives in all five branches of the military need a special resource to help them navigate marriage in the midst of it all. These men and women who are giving so much for so many need a way to love one another - a way that powerfully communicates to the heart.
The 5 Love Languages has a successful track record of helping military couples heal broken relationships and strengthen healthy relationships. Now this #1 New York Times bestseller has been adapted specifically for military couples.
Special features of the Military Edition include:
- Stories of military couples from every branch of service who have found ways to use the 5 love languages in their unique lifestyles
- A Decoding Deployments section at the end of each love language chapter, offering tips on how to express love when you are apart.
- A new chapter, Love Language Scramblers, explains how to speak the love languages through some of the most challenging times of a military marriage.
- An updated Q&A section to include questions specific to military marriage.
The 5 Love Languages profile will help you and your partner identify your love languages so you can put the principles to work for you immediately. Guided by input from dozens of military couples in all stages of their careers, authors Gary Chapman and former military wife Jocelyn Green offer you an unparalleled tool for your marriage with The 5 Love Languages Military Edition."
I am really excited for this. It doesn't come out till September, but you better believe I will be ordering this puppy. It will be a needed check-in as Lane and I head toward homecoming and reintegration.
My love language is Acts of Service. I would love to hear if any of y'all have used this book. Anyone else planning on picking up the new one?
