Too Sweet Tuesdays

Last year I got a fabulous gift from my sister-in-law. The book The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman (purchase here: The-Love-Languages-Secret-Lasts). I enjoyed it so much I read it twice just to make sure I didn't miss anything. It really showed me how different DH (Dear Husband) and I really are. He needs things from me emotional that I hadn't thought of--things that help him know he is loved, but I never knew "he" needed. So, a couple months ago I strolled by this app called Love Language Challenge (you can also go to the website: Love Language Challenge). So, the first step is take the quiz and have your spouse take the quiz. If it doesn't sound like something he'll do, then you can take it for him and just think like him. So each week it gives you a challenge and it walks you through step by step and they are usually very simple. Like the first week for me was to leave notes around (DH's love language is words of affirmation) letting him know how thankful I am for certain things. So, I stayed up late one night and put notes in his wallet, on the door, on the alarm, in his lunch box, in his car, in his pants pocket---you know just to let him know how thankful I am for the things he does for me. He of course LOVED it and in return left me some. Trust me, try it and you won't regret it---this will strengthen your marriage no matter how long you've been married. 
Praying for you and your spouse as you begin this challenge.
