Forgiveness is not a feeling; it is a commitment
The 5 Love Languages might seem a little bit random for Books in Character. But I do think it is a useful tool to learn things about yourself and the ones you care about. This is just a very short review, but I thought I should bring this book to everyone’s attention.

Falling in love is easy. Staying in love—that’s the challenge! How can you keep your relationship fresh and growing amid the demands, conflicts, and just plain boredom of everyday life?

Whether your relationship is flourishing or failing, Dr. Gary Chapman’s proven approach to showing and receiving love will help you experience deeper and richer levels of intimacy with your partner—starting today.
The 5 Love Languages is as practical as it is insightful. Updated to reflect the complexities of relationships today, this new edition reveals intrinsic truths and applies relevant, actionable wisdom in ways that work.
I give The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman five our of five hearts because it gives the reader more background information on and how to use the 5 Love Languages.
The 5 Love Languages are five different ways of telling someone you love/like them. If you do the test on the website you will learn what you yourself prefer and the people around you do it too and you talk about it, it will help you understand each other better.
The book doesn’t help so much in finding out what your own Love Language is, but it will make you think and understand what this says about you.
I loved reading this book to see how Gary Chapman got to these 5 types of love. It has improved my relationships and it made me understand the people around me too. If you think your relationship is a drag, be sure to check this book out. But everyone can do with a little more understanding of themselves and others.
