Not so sure what your Love Language is? That’s okay, I didn’t know for the longest time. I mean, I suspected, but I wasn’t entirely sure.  If you’re in the same boat as me, or if perhaps you can’t decide between two (or three), a quiz might be the right next step for you!

Jason and I began reading “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman the other night, and already I’m fully convinced that this is BY FAR the best marriage-improvement book ever.
Okay, I’ll back up that bold statement….
Back in 2005, I went on a missions trip to the Dominican Republic with my church.  I don’t speak Spanish, [...]
