Love As A Way Of Life by Dr. Gary Chapman

Book: Love As A Way Of Life

Author: Dr. Gary Chapman

Angie's Take: I am really inspired by this book. I've been so intrigued that I'm reading it on the treadmill. Dr. Chapman uses the 7 concepts of patience, courtesy, kindness, forgiveness, humility, generosity and honesty as a basis for all the love languages. He breaks it down into love in action. I have found that Dr. Chapman continually is blessed with wisdom from God and that it is always something I am blessed to learn. I feel like I grew as a person through reading Love As A Way Of Life. My favorite concept is that even though there are many types of success, they all boil down to relationship. If you live for Number One, all you will get is emptiness. The more you pour into relationships, the more joy and fulfillment you have personally. Live to enrich other people's lives and you are blessed with successful relationships. (Of course, that's very paraphrased so you'll have to read it and see what you glean:-D ) Then see the bottom of this post for your chance to win a copy of Love As A Way Of Life.

Summary: The author of the perennial bestseller The Five Love Languages examines how a lifestyle of love can lead to deeper satisfaction in relationships and life goals. Eye-opening self tests, practical ideas for building daily habits of love, and inspiring examples guide readers in putting love to work in their daily interactions.
