Now You’re Speaking My Language from multimillion selling author Gary Chapman (The Five Love Languages) encourages husbands and wives to offer steadfast loyalty, forgiveness, empathy, and commitment to resolving conflict, thus encouraging each other in spiritual growth.
With great clarity, Dr. Chapman shows how communication and intimacy are key points in developing a successful marriage by focusing on these principles: Lasting answers to marital growth are found in the Bible, Your relationship with God enhances your marriage relationship, Communication is the main way two become one in a marriage, and Biblical oneness involves sex, but also intellectual, spiritual,emotional, and social oneness.
Gary Chapman explains the importance and intricacies of communication in healthy marriages. Now You’re Speaking My Language is full of simple, yet profound advice useful to couples at every level of marital bliss. Whether you are struggling in your marriage or feel completely satisfied, this title is completely worth the time and energy to invest in your relationship.
Much like Chapman’s “5 Love Languages,” the concepts discussed in this book articulated situations and emotions I could relate to and simple solutions for a more open and intimate marriage relationship. So many couples enter into marriage without learning the importance of purposeful communication. I’m looking forward to reading this title with my husband but even if he never read a word of it, I know that our relationship will benefit from the improvements I can make in the way I communicate with him.
I requested this book from the publisher through NetGalley in order to read it and offer an honest review.
