My husband and I have been married 11 years. Eleven years, three continents, two kids, and thousands of frequent flyer miles.

I’m South African and he’s American, but even when we’re both speaking English it has often felt like we’re speaking different languages. He’d fill up the gas tank, go grocery shopping and help do the laundry and I’d wonder why he never came home with roses. I’d share the nuances of my day with him, hang out for hours just talking and he complained that I felt more like a roommate
than a wife.

We loved each other, sure. We just weren’t that great at translating that love into a language the other could understand. And the irony, of course, is that neither of us wanted to fess up to what we needed from the other. Even when it began to emerge from many, many, many rounds of arguments what we were each looking for. Putting it into words just seemed (to me at least) to drain the romance right out of the gesture.

Boy I wish I could go back in time and whack my newly-married self over the head.

Well, that or give myself something helpful. A dictionary, for example. Not an Afrikaans-English dictionary, but a Lisa-Jo-Peter dictionary that could translate his actions into words of love. Or my love needs into clear guidelines that he could follow to leave me feeling cherished, romanced, beloved.

Perhaps you’ve already heard of Dr. Gary Chapman and his book, The Five Love Languages. Since walking down the aisle my communications skills (much like my hips) have gained some weight. It’s thanks to this book that I now say things like, “I need roses, not an oil change to feel loved.”

You’d be amazed how empowering it is to be able to put into words what your love language is. Words of affirmation, gifts and quality time are high on my list. Do you know what’s on yours?

Today we’re delighted to be able to encourage you to figure it out.
Because we’re giving away 50 COPIES of The Five Love Languages.

Yup, you heard me right! One copy for every 10 comments – up to 500 comments and 50 books.

There are two ways to enter:

1. Click here to find out what your love language is and leave a comment sharing what you learned.

2. Click here to check out DaySpring’s fun selection of free Valentine’s E-Cards and leave a comment telling us which one you sent (see, it’s not too late!)

Easy peasy. We’ll leave the contest open until we hit 500 comments and all 50 books have found good homes.

And as a bonus, we’re also giving 25% off everything in our online store this month with the code LOVE25.

So, really, everyone’s a winner. Just as it should be. Here’s to love never getting lost in translation again!

You guys are awesome! And we still can’t recommend the book highly enough for anyone wanting to purchase a late Valentine’s Gift!

    My love language is Affirmation. Love it, love it, LOVE IT!!

  • http://www.crystalkrueger.blogspot.com Crystal

    I think mine is Affirmation too. My husband and I need to read this book. Thanks for sharing your story and the giveaway.

  • http://hippiehousewife.blogspot.com Cynthia

    I think mine is acts of service, although words of affirmation come a close second. Thank you for this giveaway!

  • http://alexandranicoleb.blogspot.com Allie

    Words of affirmation is the love language I understand best. When D proposed (and almost every day since then), he told me dozens of reasons why he loved me. My heart flutters every time I hear them. He knows that his appreciative words are not the only way, but certainly the quickest, to my heart.

  • http://www.crystalkrueger.blogspot.com Crystal

    I sent a card to my Mom, who is just learning about email. She’s going to be surprised!

  • Angela solomon

    I am a mix of words of affirmation and acts of service.

  • Amber

    I took the assessment and words of affirmation scored the highest. I was a little surprised because I thought it would be acts of service. Would love to read the book to learn a little more about this!

  • Missy Langford

    mine was affirmation

  • Ellen

    I took the assessment, and it showed that my love language is Quality Time. This is very much who I am. I love to spend quality time with close friends and family, and make every moment count. Love the Hugs too.

  • http://www.thehudsonclan.wordpress.com chelsea

    i sent the live, laugh, love card to my mom!

    acts of service was highest… 11 out of 12 points. :)

  • http://medleyofthoughts1.blogspot.com/ Jess

    Wow, I took the assessment and am pretty much tied between Words of Affirmation,
    Quality Time and Acts of Service. What does that mean? I can pretty much guarantee my husbands

  • http://medleyofthoughts1.blogspot.com/ Jess

    Wow, I took the assessment and am pretty much tied between Words of Affirmation,
    Quality Time and Acts of Service. What does that mean? I can pretty much guarantee my husband’s language is Physical Touch.

    I scored the highest on Acts of Service! :)

  • http://hisidahorose.wordpress.com Kandace

    I sent the e-card entitled “We Belong to each other” to my hubby. It was so fitting!

    And thank you for this give away!

  • The Wannabe Mummy

    My love language is acts of service – totally explains the things I get upset about. Would love a copy of this – I’m not good at explaining how I feel -this book would help me do that. It would also help me see where my husband is coming from.

  • Jennifer Crewe

    Took the test very interesting. Quality Time was mine. Maybe that is because I am now on my own since my husband passed away so I really miss having quality time with one special person. So quality time with my friends is really important to me.

  • Jennifer Crewe

    Visited DaySpring Ecards which I love. Sent Sprinkles of Love to my son and his wife.

  • corinne

    Mine was receiving gifts, but even more interesting to me is that my daughter’s are quality time and physical touch. Knowing that can really help me relate to her better and more directly meet her needs.

  • Lisa H

    I believe my #1 Love Language is physical touch and #2 is Words of Affirmation. I’m divorced now and while going through all the turmoil leading up to it and then the counseling after for a multitude of things, I craved hugs. I just needed to be touched by another human being, by a caring adult who understood me. My friend/counselor/mentor/encourager at church is that one person right now. Her hugs mean the world to me. She is who I want near me when I am at a low point, when I am scared. There have been weeks when her hugs on Sunday morning have been the only physical touch I would get besides from my children. She would also give me words of affirmation-she would tell me she was proud of me for doing x,y, or z. Something I craved to hear growing up but never did. She feels like a sister to me that is teaching me about life. I’ve learned alot about myself with her help and God. I’m learning alot of things that can be helpful for whenever there is a time I am in another relationship, things that would have helped my marriage before it crumbled. Now I am just waiting on God.

  • Georgia Monroe

    Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch!

  • Alex

    Mine us definitely acts of service, while my husband’s is words of affirmation.

  • susan

    mine are words of affirmation AND physical touch!

  • http://bahava.wordpress.com Katy

    My top love languages are words of affirmation, gifts and quality time =)

  • http://thereedfeed.wordpress.com Melissa

    Acts of Service, Words of Affirmation

  • Mary

    Gifts for me. :)

  • Mary

    Loved the John 3:16 card.

  • Michelle

    I plan on going back to take the quiz, but looking at the 5 love languages briefly I would say physical touch and quality time.

  • Melissa

    my love language is Quality time and my husband’s is physical touch. Tough to put these to use when separated by an ocean for 13 months. :(

  • http://www.cheryl-weightymatters.blogspot.com Cheryl Sims

    Mine is acts of service. I was lucky to hear Gary in person many years ago and this brought back to me how much I enjoyed what he had to say. I would love to have the book to revisit what I learned. Thank you for reminding me.
    Cheryl Sims

  • Efi

    Definitely affirmation. I would love to read the book, though. That way I could understand the needs of my hubby and kiddo’s.

  • Peggy

    I am thinking acts of service is high along with words of affirmation.

  • Alithea

    Sent a DaySpring e-card to a long-time friend i needed to touch bases with, and then really got into it, and sent three more! The price was right : ) The card i sent my friend was the one w/ the wonderful saying, “Friends are God’s way of giving us hugs” So true!

  • Leigh F.

    My love language is acts of service!

  • Peggy

    I sent an e-card to one of my dear friends.

  • http://thepartythatneverquits.blogspot.com Jen

    I’ve found my language has changed since getting older (and the kids arrived). I used to be gifts… way out in front, with quality time & physical tied for a close second. Now, while my seconds haven’t changed, acts of service is my predominate language to receive. I still give gifts to show affection, but they don’t mean so much to receive anymore. Not that I’ll knock back flowers or aything, because they still mean a lot and I feel appreciated… but not having to mop the floor? *contented sigh* :)

    Oh, and this is the card I bought for the hubster… not a dayspring one, but I think you girls will get a kick out of it ;)

  • Heidi

    I believe my love language is quality time.

  • Grace

    I only had a 1 point difference between Gifts and Acts of Service. I’ve seen his video series for this book but would love to have the book to read.

  • Kerry

    Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch were tied for me. How true it is! I definitely need to read this book to understand more about these love languages and how to approach others who have different love languages.

  • http://www.carolinecollie.com Caroline@CarolineCollie

    Words of Affirmation…totally makes sense, even though it’s a surprise to me! I think I need to do some reading and thinking! :) Thanks!

  • AR

    Words of Affirmation – though a few others were close behind : )


  • shannon

    I took the assessment and it was a tie between words of affirmation and quality time (9 each) and physical touch a close second (8). i would love to be able to read this book with my husband.

  • Rhonda

    Mine is words of affirmation!

  • Jill

    Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch were just 2 points apart. Now I want to get my husband to take the test so I will know what his are. Thanks for posting this!

  • Sherry

    My love language is physical touch.

  • http://skydyed.blogspot.com Melissa

    Thanks for this contest! I think mine is quality time or affirmation.

  • http://www.peculiarkind.blogspot.om Jennifer

    My love language is : Receiving gifts! I love flowers and especially well-thought out gifts. They make me feel special!

  • Sherry

    I sent the Happy Valentine’s Mom eCard to my mom. She’ll love it!!!

  • ~VA~

    7 Words of Affirmation
    6 Quality Time
    4 Receiving Gifts
    6 Acts of Service
    7 Physical Touch

    Apparently I am a bit of a Jack-of-All-Trades in the love language department. This is from the singles test…I also took the children’s test since I am 18 so I wasn’t exactly sure what the cut-off was between child and single…on that one my top score by far was receiving gifts.

  • http://deut286.wordpress.com Jen

    My love language is Quality Time, which makes sense because I would rather spend the whole day with someone than have them buy me gifts.

  • http://www.peculiarkind.blogspot.om Jennifer

    I sent the precious moments card

  • ~VA~

    I sent a bunch of the ecards, but my favorite is the hugs one.


    Personal touch was my love language….my hubby rarely gives gifts( he says I’m hard to shop for LOL) so yeah…I love lots of hugs and kisses!

  • Kim

    My Love Language is Physical Touch!! I am a Hugger not a Fighter <3

  • http://withoutfear08.blogspot.com Pam

    My love language is definitely “acts of service”, and I am grateful to have a husband who “gets” that and regularly fills my love tank by cleaning the kitchen and doing the dishes for me.

    I also sent three e-cards — one to my parents, my best friend, and my husband (using one of the Fireproof-inspired selections). : ) Happy Valentine’s Day to y’all too!

  • http://www.lifewithjding.com Ingrid

    Mine is receiving gifts and I totally agree that once my husband and I figured each others out that it made a huge difference, for the better, in our relationship!

  • Paola Pacheco

    I have been wanting to read this book for years. My love language is words of affirmation and it seems as though my husband is acts of service. Thank you for the awesom reminder of this fabulous book! May your day be filled with love!

  • Krissie

    THis was pretty much what I would have guessed ;-)

    6 Words of Affirmation
    8 Quality Time
    9 Receiving Gifts
    5 Acts of Service
    2 Physical Touch

  • http://shellywildman.net Shelly W.

    I’m torn between Words of Affirmation and Acts of Service. What a great giveaway! I’ve always wanted to read this book.

  • http://sarahbchamp.blogspot.com sarah

    my love language is quality time!

  • http://www.ponderinginhispresence.blogspot.com Joy

    I sent the “Faith, Hope, Love” card to my best friend. I sent her a package in the mail already, but you can never tell someone you love them too much. God tells me He loves me every day, and I always enjoy hearing His whispers.

    This morning I posted on my blog that Love is “More Than a Fairytale”. So thankful for the reality of His love in my life.

    Happy Valentine’s Day Blessings,

  • http://sunshinesentiments.blogspot.com Amy Thornton

    My love language was words of affirmation with quality time as a runner-up. I don’t think I would have guessed that, so it was very helpful to complete the assessment. Once I finished it made sense. Thanks for posting this today. I needed to do it.

  • Daena Cox

    I already knew that my love language was touch, but my secondary was a surprise…but not really. As a mother of seven, I guess I should have known that quality time ALONE was both coveted and RARE! We need to feed into one another as individuals outside of of practical matters. I am sending the survey to my dh for us to share…it’ll hopefully lead to a rewarding Valentine’s day dinner discussion. Thanks for sharing!

  • Tina

    I am a Physical Touch person! I very much am a ‘touchy’ person. Ready to give a hug at the most important and sometimes unexpected times. I hadn’t realized this about myself until recently. There have been times that it has created a little unconfortable situations for people who just meet me. But for ones who know me, it is a blessing, for myself and them!

  • Cristin

    I chose the “No one else” Fireproof Dayspring Valentine’s Day and sent it to my Hot Hubby. Thank you! I took the assessment for love languages and my love language is words of affirmation

  • Robin in New Jersey

    Acts of service and quality time would be a tie.

  • Renee

    Mine are physical touch & acts of service.

  • karen h.

    i love each of the “languages” but find that I am most the physical touch & acts of service combination!

  • http://rightmyerrelativity.blogspot.com Becca

    I’m sending the “You and Me” card.

  • Amanda

    My love languages are words of affirmation and acts of service (tied at 8).

  • http://alwaysdreamed.wordpress.com Katie

    I love The Five Love Languages! Mine are Words of Affirmation and Acts of Service, but I show love through gifts =)

  • Hope

    Mine is receiving gifts :) So true too I am a big gift person :)

    I LOVE the fireproof card :) awesome! :)

  • Sunny

    I sent “Counting Stars” as that is something we have done every summer since we moved to the country. We grab a couple of lawn chairs and sit out in the middle of our back field and count the stars. I always count Him among the stars as I am so grateful for our love and our Marriage – soon to be 45 years.

    Hugs, Sunny

  • Amy

    Words of affirmation here. I’ve heard this is a wonderful book!

  • Dottie

    Happy Valentines day!! I sent 2 e-cards. One to my son and his wife Valetine Divine and one to my granddauhter Valentine Humor. The cards are just wonderful! I do send them often as a quite reminder of Gods love.

  • Sonya B

    I actually had two that were an 8, quality time and acts of service. Thanks for the information, should be helpful to us both.

  • Erica Laramee

    I sent a Valentine Card to my best friend who lives far away.

    I also did the assessment. I LOVE words of appreciation. My husband LOVES acts of service. We are almost complete opposites with love languages. LOL. Except that we both enjoy quality time. Balancing our needs is interesting, but we are learning.

  • Brandy

    My language – Affirmation was most certainly at the top.

  • Kristie G.

    I learned my love language is quality time. I totally agree! Sometimes just knowing my hubby is in the same room with me is so comforting.

  • Rhonda Waller

    My Love Language is “Receiving Gifts” and honestly I did not expect that one to be my #1 but it is very true for me. The little things mean a lot. I sent the “For My Daughter” card to my daughter who I love a lot. I remember getting Valentines Day cards from my Mother as a child and I want her to have those memories too!

  • Christie

    I sent the “We Belong To Each Other” card.

  • http://www.tjsmhanesfamily.blogspot.com Stephanie Hanes

    My primary language is Quality Time, but I also crave Physical Touch and Receiving gifts sometimes.

  • Rebecca

    My love language would be Quality time, with Words of Affirmation as a close second.

  • http://sweetestpetunia.blogspot.com Jacky {The Sweetest Petunia}

    This is a book that I’d really love for the sweetheart to read before we get married – sometimes I feel like he really doesn’t get that he doesn’t have to give me something expensive, but even small gifts thrill me. Recieving Gifts and Words of Affirmation are pretty much tied for me. :)

  • http://www.baskingingrace.blogspot.com Mary Lynn

    My love languages are quality time and acts of service.

  • Kimberly

    I am all about touch:)

  • Amber

    My love language is physical touch, hands down, followed by words of affirmation. My lowest score was receiving gifts. I’d never thought about these things before, but I think the assessment is spot-on!

  • Jen U

    Words of Affirmation and Acts of Service.

  • http://www.sarahfowler.com Sarah Fowler

    Acts of service is my main one. Touch is closely behind. (I’ve always meant to read this book but somehow never have gotten my hands on a copy!)

  • http://Www.cindyroadman.ifp3.com Cindy Roadman

    I am all about words of affirmation and physical touch!!! Happy valentines day!!! Love isn’t just about your mate today!!! There r many “loves” in your life! Celebrate them all!!! God has blessed us with each other: parents, children, siblings, mates, boyfriends, girlfriends, special friends, extended family, even pets!!! Today is nationalized recognized day of love so shower those around you in a language they can hear!!

  • Diane Fowler

    Words of Affirmation. We are a very close couple & our marriage will be 24 years young this year! We love to cuddle & touch. It means more to me than any gift.

    Thank you for the chance to enter.

    My love language is “Words of Affirmation”. It was almost tied with “Quality Time”. That makes total sense. Hoping to get my hubby to take the test..

  • http://thebeverlybuzz.blogspot.com Beverly @ The Buzz

    Mine is Words of Affirmation, but Physical Touch came in a close second. Thanks for hosting this giveaway. These books are wonderful!

  • http://arock4him.blogspot.com/ Amy

    My love language has changed as I’ve grown and as God has developed me more into what He desires. Outside of my selfishness I desire the closeness of my husband – my companion. Without His touch, that I admit I sometimes take for granted, I am lost and wandering in our home.

  • Kathy in IN

    I think my love language is words of affirmation and quality time.

  • http://brightforest.blogspot.com Cassi

    Oh this give away couldn’t have come at a better time. I am Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch.

  • http://www.thepaparazzimom.blogspot.com/ Michelle

    My love language is acts of service I guess and I would really love to have this book to read! Thank you!


    Mine is words of Affirmation and Acts of Service. This didn’t really surprise me, but when I read about words of Affirmation I really understood why my spirit is wounded or healed by the spoken word.

  • Laurin

    I am “Words of Affirmation” tied with “Quality Time”. It’s got to be hard to love me!

  • Beth Williams

    My love language is physical touch. I already knew that before the test.

    Great post! It is hard to always verbalize what you need from a spouse. Gifts don’t really eman that much to me!

  • http://liferearranged.com/blog jeannett

    my love language is “receiving gifts” for sure. it sounds shallow, but it doesn’t have to be expensive! just a flower picked from a garden would suffice. :)

  • http://liferearranged.com/blog jeannett

    my favorite e-card was the God is Love card. I even sent it! :)

  • dee

    mine was affirmation. That’s all I need!! Well almost!

  • JennaLynn Self

    My love language is most definitely Quality Time. I love spending time with people and feel most appreciate when someone takes time out of their day to spend it with me.

  • Carole

    I have two languages of love: Words of Affirmation and Physical touch. There’s not a day that goes by that the word “I Love You” is spoken to each other on more than one occasion. Those three words were not used a lot in my house growing up. I changed that for my home. My husband and kids know they are loved. As for Physical touch, a hug in the kitchen when one of us is preparing dinner. Or a back rub, usually for me, while we lay in bed at night watching t.v. It’s the acknowledgement from the other partner whether it be touch, words, a gesture, that shows that there is love.

  • Susan

    My love language(s) are Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch (who knew on this one!)

  • Alison

    My love language is quality time!

  • JennaLynn Self

    I sent the ‘When I’m with you card’! :)

  • Emly

    I found out I am really a combination of all of the five! I sent the e-card of the keys in the heart! We have been married 28 years!

  • Emily

    My love language is words. I scored 0 on acts of service… which is my husband’s… so glad I know now! Looks like I’ll have some translating to do, but I’m excited to start :)

  • http://www.Alphajazz.com Anna Turner

    I have a hard time picking just one love language, I think I need them all!! :) But words of affirmation makes me feel the most loved. My (almost) fiance’ needs quality time, so even though I love buying him gifts he responds more to spending time with me.

  • http://lovinglifeslittlemoments.blogspot.com/ kelly

    ,y love language is receiving gifts and quality time. =0)

  • http://joyfullyblessed.wordpress.com Bekah

    Mine was quality time with affirmation just one point behind. Both of these make sense, but it makes me curious how to interact in the midst of a very long-distance relationship right now… to not get that quality time that is evidently how I most enjoy feeling loved.

  • http://www.amyriep.com Amy

    I’ve always wanted to read this book – I don’t know why, 14 years in to our marriage – it’s yet to have been in my hands.

    Looking at the website – I think my love language is quality time.

  • http://onepolkadotday.blogspot.com Katie

    I am a gifts and affirmations girl. And touch was pretty high on the list, as well. :)

  • Jennifer

    Affirmation….my husband is great with gifts and acts of service.
    I need to tune in to his offerings and give him positive feedback
    while expressing some needs for verbal affirmation.

  • Stacy B.

    Mine was physical touch. Yet, I do like to get flowers even if they are picked out of the yard, hehe

  • http://crystalstine.blogspot.com Crystal

    My top three (only 3 points apart) were: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, and Receiving Gifts. Makes sense, since I’m a “word” person! Interestingly, hubs tends to lean more toward Service, Physical Touch & Quality Time :) It’s been fun to learn how to respond to one another, knowing what we each prefer to receive and do!

  • Kelly

    my love language is acts of service. I love when my husband jumps in and gets something done that I would have had to do!

  • Juanita

    I have two equally high scores in “quality time” and “physical touch” with “words of affirmation” right behind; it wasn’t a surprise for the most part

  • http://dianeyuhas.com Diane Yuhas

    I took the assessment and was surprised to find that Quality Time is my primary love language, followed by Words of Affirmation. That’s funny, because of all the ways I express love to others, time together is certainly lacking. It is true, however, that if I could spend more time with those I really like and love, I surely would. Thanks.

  • Kent

    Service and Touch fill my soul and my wife is all about service and words.

  • Denice

    My love language was Acts of Service. No wonder I like it so much when my husband does the laundry! :)

  • Lisa Taylor

    My love language is Acts of Service and my husband’s is Physical Touch. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  • Ginger

    Acts of service…now I can use all those “chore” coupons I’ve been saving :-)

  • Elizabeth

    Quality time is my love language. Love it when my husband will drop what he’s doing to spend time with me. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

  • Tara

    I just took their online questionnaire and mine is “words of affirmation” and “acts of service” as they were both the high score. “Quality time” and “physical touch” were both tied for 2nd w/gifts being a 0.
    I always thought the words of affirmation was high, but I assumed physical touch/quality time were also high, not realizing that acts of service was that important. Now that I think about it and after reading and answering the questions, it helps. I’d really like to read this book w/my husband – I think it would/could help both of us understand each other better.

  • Daniella

    My language is Quality Time. And also a little of Acts of Service :)

  • Tracy

    My husband and I have the same love language…Acts of Service. Very interesting.

  • Suzanne R.

    Quality Time! Absolutely true. I would rather experience something with hubby than receiving kind words or gifts. His attention and the shared memories are what keep us bonded.

  • Pat Grubb

    Your book saved our marriage and I have given out both copies……I am currently working through the one for Teenagers……..Your concept is so easy to understand….Thank YOU !!!!
    I am gifts and acts of service…….

  • Sue

    I think I’m a blend of Gifts and Acts of Service because that’s how I show the people that I love that I care about them.

  • Linda Kennedy

    My love language is Acts of Service.

  • Lynda Masi

    My love lanuage is affirmations. Not to suprised by that. My husband is a man of few

  • Sherie L

    My Love Language is: Acts of Service.

    Thank you!

  • Deborah

    my love language is definitely acts of service. if I am overwhelmed by house duties and receiving no help, I definitely feel withdrawn, unloved, etc etc etc

  • http://karennaber.wordpress.com Karen

    I sent “We Belong to Each Other” to my husband! My #1 love language is Gifts, then it was a tie between Words of Affirmation and Quality Time.

  • Caro

    In college while training for the ministry we were taught to speak all 5 LL to our spouses, I don’t believe the book was written at the time. Its so much easier to know my husband’s love language because even though he tries hard to speak mine, I realize its an automatic act of love when he speaks his to me. This book stopped our divorce in its tracks and was the turning point in our marriage.

  • http://www.adisciplesguidetocommonsense.blogspot.com Aaron

    My primary is gift giving. My secondary is words of affirmation. Sometimes it feels like it changes, but I know those are the core languages.

  • sharlene

    I can’t decide between gifts and acts of service…both very important to me…I enjoy giving gifts and try to help as much as I can

  • Sherie L

    My Boyfriends Love Language is:
    Quality Time Followed very closely by Physical Touch.

    Since this is a Valentines Promotion I figure what better way then expressing love in your SO language. So that is why I am posting his also. He did the quiz weeks ago, is that cheating?

  • Darlene

    My love language is quality time with words of affirmation a close second. I love this book and would love to send my niece who just got engaged a copy.

  • nina

    mine results were neck and neck between
    Quality time and Physical touch with acts of service close behind…….

  • http://www.dontoverpay.roviadreams.com Kris

    Quality Time is number one…I need all of them but Gifts!! Funny I like to win/buy stuff….I’ve read the book and of course…made my husband take the test. His language is the one that is hardest for me to learn….Words! I am a doer!

  • Jenn L

    8 Words of Affirmation
    8 Receiving Gifts
    My top two!

    i already know mine……..gifts and words of affirmation. My hubby’s are acts of service…which is why I am going to clean my side of the closet today for his valentine’s gift! Better that to him than candy anytime!!

  • Martha ElizaBeth Pittman

    I learned that my top 2 love languages are Physical Touch and Quality Time.
    I am so loving this opportunity to learn about this! Thank you!

  • Libby

    Words of Affirmation and Quality Time tied at the top for me.

  • Amy D

    I know that my husband is a quality time Love Language. I am Acts of Service, however. It is a great benefit that my husband is willing to do the dishes and the laundry as well as all the “man” chores!

  • Karisa

    Receiving Gifts would be my love language. I read this book when I first got married 5 years ago and need to read it again. I also need to convince my husband to read it so I hope we win!

  • Vonnie

    Mine is eqaul parts of Touch and Acts of Service. I believe it comes from having grown up without material things and this is how my parents showed me love.

  • Ina

    My top one is Quality Time. But I am intrigued to be able to ascertain other family members and friends, in order to love them better.

  • Barbie

    I sent “We belong to each other” card. I loved the pic of the keys and I loved the message of the “One” who brought us together.

  • http://www.thepaparazzimom.blogspot.com/ Michelle

    I went to dayspring ecards and sent the fireproof I love you one to my husband.

  • Beccy

    I’m a Gifty :-) Great book!!

  • Jill Eckart

    Wow – you took the words right out of my mouth! Why is it so hard to tell your hubby what you need? I know he’s not a mind reader but ….. C:

  • http://nateonamission.com Nathan

    It was pretty much a tie between physical touch, words of affirmation, and quality time …. I love all of them :)

  • Meagan

    My would be physical touch. A simple full embrace from my husband can turn any bad day right around!

  • Char

    I found out that my primary love language is quality time but physical touch is a close second!

  • Beccy

    Sending “No One Else” (Fireproof)….great site with fabulous cards!! Thanks :-)

  • nina

    I just sent the card, I love you to my husband. (inspired from the movie fireproof). My husband and I have been married 15 years and have been struggling thru several rough years lately. Prayers are needed that we will work together, that God will work thru us to heal our marriage.

  • http://www.queenieslittlekingdom.com Wanda

    This book is life-changing for every marriage! I promise!
    My love languages are Acts of Service & Quality Time.
    My hubby’s are Words of Affirmation & Physical Touch!

    Sure wish I’d known way back when I was trying to force love both ways!

  • Wilbert Thomas

    I just a DaySpring E-Card sent one to my girlfriend. My love language is Quality Time & Physical touch.

  • http://pausleylandadventures.blogspot.com/ Mandi P

    Oh my gift is SOOO words of Affirmation with a smidge of acts of service :)
    I would love to add this to my library!

  • Tricia Nieva

    I learned that my Love Language is “Acts of Service” and is closely seconded by “Words of Affirmation”

  • http://mixednutts.wordpress.com Barbie @ Mixed Nutts

    As with everything else about me, I don’t fall into any one category very gracefully. I am pretty evenly split between Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, and Physical Touch. Acts of Service is the antithesis of showing me love. I like Gifts as much as the next girl, but it also makes me feel like now I owe something, so that doesn’t quite achieve the desired results. You’d think having three love languages would make me pretty easy to love, eh? But take out any one of those for too long, and I start feeling a little deprived, lol. My poor husband.

  • http://forbetterorworse.org Nick Hampton

    I sent the Precious Moments card and my love language is Quality Time! This book changed the way my wife and I look at each other because we know how to fill each others love tank! Great read!

  • http://www.aaroncosgrove.com Aaron

    I have read a copy previously and am a duel language user.
    Primarily I’m a physical touch person though secondarily I like to be acknowledged with words of affirmation.

  • Jared Roper

    Mine is gifts!

  • Beth Werner Lee

    My top love language is Physical touch. Yah, I knew that! Anyone want a hug?

  • Leslie

    My primary love language is TIME with gifts and touch at a close second. Face to face time is the best!

  • Leslie

    I sent the ostrich “when I’m with you” since my primary language is TIME>

  • Kelsey

    I hate admitting that my love language is gifts, both giving and receiving, so I haven’t always been honest to my husband about what shows me love. So communication in this area is something we can work on! Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Natalie

    My love languages are equally physical touch, quality time, and words of affirmation. Pretty demanding. :)

  • http://onegirl-itjusttakesone.blogspot.com OneGirl

    Quality time!! I’m so surprised…it’s always been words or physical touch, but now quality time has passed them by one. Something to think about…

  • Kathleen

    I’m a tie with acts of service and gifts.

  • Jill

    Just as I suspected, Words of Affirmation is my primary love language. My secondary is actually a tie between Physical Touch and Quality Time. I am lucky to have finally found someone whose results are almost identical to mine. The connection that we have is amazing, and we both feel that we seem to speak the same “language”…this just confirms it!!

  • Reese

    My love language is Quality Time, followed by Words of Affirmation. What a great thing to know about your loved ones. I would love to read the book!

  • Jodi

    I have two primary love languages – Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch. :)

  • http://becomingmyme.blogspot.com Claire

    I am definitely a words of affirmation person with a small amount of receiving gifts thrown in!

  • http://lovethedecor.blogspot.com/ Debbie

    My love language is giving gifts

  • JW

    I sent the “We belong to each other” card.

  • http://www.lifelikeamustardseed.blogspot.com Kelly

    I was surprised to see that my love language was actually quality time and not words of affirmation. But, after thinking about it, it’s so true!

  • http://navystitching.blogspot.com Dani

    Mine is Physical Touch … closely followed by Quality Time.

  • Tara

    Well…not sure what my love language is!?!??! But I’d sure like a copy of the book to learn more. Thanks for the offer!

    7 Words of Affirmation
    6 Quality Time
    3 Receiving Gifts
    6 Acts of Service
    8 Physical Touch

  • JW

    I’m not sure if I have just one love language, but I definitely identify with the “Words of Affirmation” language.

  • Betsy

    Acts of service here, but everything except gifts was high.

  • http://setyourhearttoseekgod.blogspot.com Robin @ Set Your Heart To Seek God

    My love language is words of affirmation and gifts. Now…how to let him know that! :)

  • Vicki

    Words of Affirmation. A hundred words of affirmation can all be undone in a moment with one word of criticism. Sticks and stones can break bones, words can break hearts.

  • Jared Roper

    Sent We belong to each other.

  • http://www.xperfectlovex.blogspot.com Laura @ Perfect Love

    Quality time! :)

  • http://601hicksfamily.blogspot.com Heidi

    Mine is quality time.. but we did the checklist together in counseling and my numbers were pretty high in all the categories. :)

  • Carol

    Words of Affirmation … #1! I so agree! I love hearing encouraging words and really good talk! :)

  • Jodi

    Words of Affirmation is a 10 for me and Physical Touch is a 9.

  • Emily B

    Definitely words of affirmation! I so NEED words! :)
    Could you enter me, please?

  • Michael

    I sent the Pugs and Fishes. We have almost been married 5 years and have been through a lot. I wish I would have known about this book years ago. But we never give up. We could really use this book

  • angie

    this one is easy since my husband and I just ranked the 5 love languages the other night. turns out we both think that the other needs acts of service, when actually we are both craving words of affirmation!

  • Jen H

    I think I have a mixture of all the love languages…hopefully that makes me a little more easy to communicate with rather than more difficult! I so enjoy quality time with my husband and cherish the gifts I receive from him whether it’s something he bought or something he did for me. And, there’s nothing better than a long lingering hug in the kitchen in the middle of chaos. :)

  • http://601hicksfamily.blogspot.com Heidi

    I sent the one with the keys. Thanks so much! Happy Valentines Day!

  • Michelle

    My Love Language is Acts of Service.

  • http://www.findtheflametofan.blogspot.com Abby

    Haha! We went through this before we were married, but, I don’t know that we were that much wiser after we were married:) Partly because I seem to want all of the love languages (I’m not even kidding) and speak them all too. However, since kids, acts of service which my husband does so, so well have shot way up. Physical touch is the lowest…unfortunately for him;) But we can be pretty lovie dovie–in new situations when we are together, I think I look for this more.

    My love languages with family and friends are different. Quality time and words of affirmation are probably the highest and gifts from family–a note, card, something little b/c my mom was so great with this and I feel the lack of her presence when I don’t get gifts, but you know, I feel the nudge to give them first before thinking about getting them!

    This is a very fun way to celebrate today!:)

  • kathy

    Kinda wierd but I was equally ballanced :
    words if affirmation……..
    Quality Time………
    Acts of Service………..
    Physical Touch………
    Only feel short in receiving gifts, which was very.

    Thanks thou it was rather fun taking this… kathy

  • Carol

    I sent the “we belong together” to my hubby at work! :)

    Great giveway!!

  • http://www.nagahills.com Hopeto

    i believe my primary love language is Quality Time. Thanks Lisa-Jo for the offering the free gift . I am not sure what my other significant’s primary love language…have to let her take the assesment too.

  • Juli Ann Johnson

    My love language is gifts & acts of service. I would love to have a copy of your book! ♥

  • Heather

    I am definitely Quality Time. Anybody out there that can help me to explain what that means in “guy speak”? My husband doesn’t understand what that means. I tried my best to tell him but it makes no sense to him. He thinks just being present is enough.

  • http://www.theblissfullyblessedwife.blogspot.com Shelbey

    I sent a card to my husband while he is at work. :)

  • http://www.wohlsfam.blogspot.com Emily

    I’m sure I’m a mix of several, but physical touch is prob’ly my #1. It means so much to me when my hubby grabs my hand, rubs my leg, or even better! my back after a long day!

  • http://mylifepartdos.wordpress.com Margaret

    My primary love language is quality time. The assessment said my second one is touch and my third is acts of service. I think that’s backwards, but who cares? :)

  • FDK

    Mine is quality time :) I’ve learned that it’s important to communicate love languages to people I have relationships with. They are not mind readers, lol.

  • Jennifer S.

    My love language is physical touch followed by quality time.

  • Amy V

    My love language is acts of service. My husbands, however, is touch.

  • Keri

    My love language was acts of service, although receiving gifts was a close second. I always thought my love language was quality time…guess it can change. My lowest one was Physical touch and that is my dh’s love language..which makes it hard sometimes.

  • Paula

    My love language is definitely quality time, with words of affirmation taking a close second. I have read this book once already, and have loved what my husband and I have put into practice from it, but would definitely benefit from having it on my own bookshelf! And anyone who hasn’t yet, check out the 5 love languages for kids too! Great reads!

  • Hilda

    I was thrilled to be able to send “The Divine Valentine” DaySpring ecard to three dear friends. One of these ladies has recently separated from her husband and does not yet know Jesus, but I’m praying she will soon experience that joy.

    The background music for this particular card is beautiful and adds so much to its powerful message. Thank you for this wonderful free resource.

    Mine is Quality Time. I had my boyfriend take it and his is the same. We both scored 10!

    I think the “we belong to each other” with the keys is a cute card!

  • Joni

    I took the assessment and discovered that I am tied at 8’s for Acts of Service and Touch and tied at 7’s with Quality Time and Affirmation with 0 in Gifts. Guess there are lots of ways my husband can say he loves me?!

    My love language is acts of service! Great give-away!!!

    My Love Language is Quality Time. I feel truly loved if people want to spend time with me. This seems a wonderful book, not just for romantic relationships, but to help understand how anyone you have a relationship with (friends, parents, co-workers) react with each other.

  • http://julie-randomthoughts.blogspot.com Julie

    I sent We Belong to Each other to my hubby. We have been married for 10 years and I love him more and more each day!

  • Liz

    Wow! Who knew?? This makes so much sense within my marriage! My husband deployed not too long after we were married and when he returned, despite being “prepared” for him coming home, things were just so “off.” This theory just hits home and makes sense of the way things have been lately. We know we love each other but I think both feeling somewhat disappointed on a daily basis with what isn’t happening in our marriage. I’m so used to being on my own with the baby that to give him the “Quality Time” he’s craving is hard…..not so much hard, almost like a foreign concept…. The physical touch & “acts of service” I want are maybe just a little hard for him right now, after the deployment and all. Thanks for shedding some light on our situation!!

  • Nicole

    My love language is quality time! Would love to win this book!

  • http://libneas@aol.com Libby’s Library

    I think that I speak several languages when it come to love.
    Physical Touch would come first.
    Quality Time and Acts of Service would tie for second place.
    Affirmation is not critical, but nice none the less.
    Gifts are wonderful:-)

    Thanks for the great giveaway.

    Mine are:

    5 Words of Affirmation

    5 Physical Touch

  • Kristi Cesare

    My love language is acts of service, and that is TOUGH because my husband just became critically ill with a neurological disorder in the last nine months and has been confined to the bed. That makes me the equivalent of a single, working mom, with a crankster sitting in my bedroom. :( How can this marriage work if he cannot speak my love language? It works because I swore before God that I would make it work, and because my kids deserve a father. That is all I can hold on to right now…

  • Diana

    My love language is quality time.

    I took the profile just yesterday! I scored highest on words of affirmation and quality time. Which fits me well. I can spend all day with hubby and even if we don’t do anything or talk much, I’m perfectly content.

    My lowest score (1) was receiving gifts. Which is so true. Gift giving to me seems so forced and fake – especially on holidays!

  • Sarah

    My husband and I read this before we got married. I’d love to read it again, 9 years and 4 kids later. :) My love languages are Words of Affirmation and Gifts. My husband’s are Physical Touch and Quality Time.

  • http://www.facebook.com/master0fpuppets Rob Piazza

    My love language is quality time, and my fiancee’s is acts of service – but even though we’ve listened to the audiobook, our relationship is falling apart. Neither of us are able to communicate anymore, because of all the stress from the outside world. We’re at a point where we’ve contemplated separating, and I really don’t want to do that. I wish, and hope, that somehow we could get the book – I’d have it sent directly to her, since I couldn’t afford more than a card for Valentine’s Day (I’m disabled and fighting for social security). Yeah, I know, it sounds like a sob story, but c’est la vie. Hopefully, even if we don’t get the book, somehow we’ll get through this and get married like we’ve planned and dreamed. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Acts of Service is my #1. I have read the “God Speaks your Love Language” and I think the original book would have helped to understand it a bit better. But, Gary makes it easy to read and understand.

  • Alvesa B

    Mine was affirmation & touch. I think I’m going to get this book!!

  • http://raewallace.blogspot.com Rae

    I’m a words of affirmation girl, for sure!

  • Beth

    I sent the Precious Moments card to my husband from my girls and me:) The girls had just as much fun sending as they would have receiving:)

  • Kim

    I took the assessment and learned that my love language is Words of Affirmation. I learned that needing/wanting to hear words of affirmation is not a product of being selfish (as I have sometimes felt) but an actual “love language.” I also learned that some of the things my husband does to show his love for me, while they may not be the “language” I respond to the most, are actually love languages too and that I should recognize and appreciate them as expressions of his love just the same.

  • Heidi

    My love language is Words of Affirmation…. but my husband is more of a Physical Touch kind of guy. :)

  • http://www.cityofcyn.com Cyn

    Not surprisingly my love language is affirmation. I love being told I am loved and I express myself all the time by telling the folks around me that I love them. I fly high on a sweet text or email for days and I love when someone says my name with their voice full of love.

  • http://ruthjleamy.com RuthintheDesert

    I’m not sure about my love language…I think it’s different depending on who I’m interacting with. Physical touch is my language with my husband…but I don’t even like my friends to hug me.

  • Wendi

    I sent the ecard My Happy Heart Thanks God For You to my in-laws from my children. They so love little bits of love like this from their only grandchildren (their love languages), and they are such a blessing to me and my children. I do thank God for my in-laws, I am blessed.

  • Debbie

    My love language is words of affirmation! Thanks!

  • http://www.fearfully-wonderfully.com Christy

    Mine is words of affirmation!

  • JessW

    My love language was a tie between Quality Time and Words of Affirmation… totally spot on for me!

  • Jodi

    I sent the beautiful sentiment with the keys picture to my wonderful husband.

  • trish

    I am Words of affirmation! Thanks

  • http://www.fearfully-wonderfully.com Christy

    I sent the fireproof e-card (no one else)

  • Lori

    words of affirmation – for sure

  • http://jns-runninginheels.blogspot.com Nicole Smith

    I learned that more than anything, I am “Quality Time.” This isn’t surprising to me, as I very much appreciate and feel loved when I spent quality time with loved ones, however what surprised me was that this was my highest scoring area. I thought physical touch would be number 1, but I just learned something new about myself!

  • Sarah

    Acts of Service. Kinda get slipped up here some times….my “doing” and not “saying” gets me into trouble some times. Thanks for the fun post.

  • http://www.thisamazingjourneycalledlife.blogspot.com Becky Williams

    It looks like I have a couple of love languages:
    8 Words of Affirmation
    5 Quality Time
    3 Receiving Gifts
    5 Acts of Service
    9 Physical Touch
    I love hugging and cuddling with my husband though so “physical touch” makes sense.

  • Donna Dippel

    My love words are sending cards from Day Springs to my grandkids, kids and friends. I know they are all surprised because no one hardly ever sends cards anymore with email and cell phones. I love sending cards, it makes my heart feel good and therefore I feel sure it makes the people I share them with feel good as well.

  • Lisa K

    I took the assessment and I was so surprised to see how unimportant receiving gifts is to me! Quality time was my love language and it makes so much sense…..I’d much rather spend time with my husband and kids, and even my friends, than receive gifts from them. Their time is their gift to me!

  • Heather DG

    I love snuggles. Guess I like buying my own gifts ; )
    8 Words of Affirmation
    9 Quality Time
    3 Receiving Gifts
    1 Acts of Service
    9 Physical Touch

  • Sherree

    I was surprised to learn that mine is words of affirmation followed closely by physical touch.

  • http://crystalstine.blogspot.com Crystal

    Sent hubs the “We belong to each other” card!

  • Rebecca

    Can it be a combination of all five?? Physical Touch and Words of Affirmation are definitely my top two; however, Acts of Service pulls a close third. Hmmmm….

    Prayers and blessings,

  • Rebecca

    Oh, and I sent “My Happy Heart Thanks God for You!” to my hubs!

  • http://reb2911.blogspot.com Rebekah

    Words of affirmation have always been my top love language. That’s why I love following (in)courage on Twitter because you are awesome at that LJ! : ) My physical touch score used to be higher…but gifts has moved up while that moved down. Weird! But interesting! :)

  • Jennifer Fletcherj

    I sent the ‘your friendship is a gift in my life’.

  • http://themommyrambles.blogspot.com Alexia

    Mine was quality time – which I knew since my mom knows about the love languages and told us what we were Hehe, but it was fun finding out for myself!

  • Kristen

    My love language is Receiving Gifts.

  • Becky

    My love language is gifts. :-)

  • Becky

    I sent the card with the 2 keys as the opening image.

  • http://www.thearenaupdate.com Sarah K

    My husband and I struggle sometimes because his love language is 100% Physical Touch and I’m a Gifts, Quality Time and Words of Affirmation gal!

  • http://www.hiddensisters.com hiddensisters

    Mine is *quality time*. Would love to share this book!

  • Liz

    My love language is Acts of Service.

  • Alle McCloskey

    I’m an time-spent with/physical touch woman — what a wonderful reminder for Valentine’s!

  • http://www.horseprairiechatter.blogspot.com/ Bev McDougal

    I sent my husband a Dayspring card: We belong to each other

  • Hannah

    Affirmation :)

  • http://www.horseprairiechatter.blogspot.com/ Bev McDougal

    I also took the Language of Love assessment. Though I crave help and intuitive helping, my languages are words of affirmation, physical touch and quality time.

  • Alle McCloskey

    Sent a Dayspring card to my Valentine — the one with the two keys! Loved being able to tell him that I would forever belong to him and that I love him — no matter what!

  • Melissa

    I thought is was really interesting to have one for teenagers. I sent the link to my daughter to see if we communicate the same way.

  • Kristen

    I’ll send the card: Your friendship is a gift in my life.

  • Sara

    Words of affirmation and quality time.

  • Vicky

    I have all five! Hope that is normal! My husbands is physical touch and gifts.

  • Robin

    My Love Language is Quality Time. :)

  • Cherie

    Mine was a tie – Physical Touch and Words of Affirmation. Very interesting, I had never taken this test before. I have heard of the book but have never read it. Not I am curious!

  • Robin

    I like the Pugs & Fishes Valentine’s Day card. :)

  • Hannah

    My love language is quality time. I feel most loved during those days we would enjoy together.

  • http://www.cindybultema.blogspot.com Cindy Bultema

    My love language is WORDS. The love language materials have helped my marriage so much! :)

  • Joni M.

    I sent the Sprinkles of Love (Precious Moments) card to my sister and family.

  • Cherie

    I sent the You & Me e-card to my husband!

  • mike tobin

    helped me reconcile with my ex wife!

  • http://www.life-edited.blogspot.com Amanda

    Mine must be acts of service… When my husband vacuums & mops the floor, he is the sexiest person on the planet. Or taking the kids outside to give me a moment of silence – Sigh. Makes me feel like royalty.

  • Norma

    Mine turned out to be physical touch with words of affirmation only one behind! Sounds right to me!! Want my husband to take this test too!! :)

  • Dia

    ACTS OF SERVICE! Oil changes speak to my heart!

  • Shannon

    My top language was Acts of Service (9) … luckily, I’m pretty sure that’s my hubby’s #1 way of giving love … he’s FOREVER doing things for me and helping around the house! :)

    Words of Affirmation and Quality Time tied with 8. Physical touch was 4, and Receiving Gifts was a 1. Not big on gifts, apparently. Ha.


    I think I’m going to see if I can get my hubby to take the quiz today. I’m positive his #1 way of receiving love is Words of Affirmation, but I’d be curious to see what else it shows. (And I desperately need to work on giving Words of Affirmation more often!!)

  • Joni M.

    Acts of Service!

  • Shannon

    I’m sending the “Your Friendship is a Gift to My Heart” card to one of my BFF’s. :)

  • Anette

    Quality Time for me, baby! Means so much when someone calls me and makes time for me…or goes out of their way to clear a spot on their schedule. If I have to always be the one to take initiative, it communicates to me that I am not that important to them. Not that it is true, of course! Very helpful to know this.

  • Leigh Ann

    Although I already knew this, mine is quality time. I actually knew that would be mine before I even took the test the first time. It’s a great book!!

  • http://www.thefarmerfiles.com thefarmerfiles

    Words of affirmation is my love language!

  • Gracie

    Mine is acts of service.

  • http://undergodsmightyhand.blogspot.com Caroline

    My love language is Quality Time (which I totally agree with), followed closely by Words of Affirmation.

    Thank you for this kind opportunity!

  • http://justinehumnick.wordpress.com Justine

    My love language is quality time which totally fits me. I enjoy spending time with others.

  • Nancy

    The assessment shows words of affirmation, well “spoken”! Maybe that’s why my mouth is always running. But seriously, I love to hear my husband’s words more than roses!

  • Emile

    Words of affirmation!

  • Emile

    Sent the “we belong to each other card!”

  • Celeste

    Spot on in the love language; Physical Touch and Quality Time.
    This is so fitting as my man travels way too much and I miss him
    Thank you for the opportunity to send an e-card, I sent the #4 from
    Fireproof to my love. I pray that it blesses him on the road.

  • Amy

    quality time is mine

  • http://www.courtney-ann.com Courtney

    My love language is quality time, followed by physical touch. What I learned is that I need to ask “What do you need…” and by telling what I need. … Which is probably how a conversation with the guy I’m dating right now is going to go tonight during our “where are we headed and what do we want” conversation…

  • Kim

    My #1 Love Language is Physical Touch. I am am so glad I took the test. If I had been asked I would probably have answered differently based on the descriptions but as I answered the questions, I could best sense my preferences and what is important to me.

  • Christie

    I’m in the middle of the personal profile questions but thought I’d go ahead and comment – I hardly ever take the time to enter giveaways, but I was just thinking of this book yesterday. Such a funny coincidence (though, since it’s Valentine’s Day maybe not so much!). I’ve heard so many great things about these books over the years I’ve sort of convinced myself that I have read and understood it. Yesterday I realized that maybe I should actually pick up the book. If I don’t win a copy, I’ll be looking for it at my library. Thanks!

  • Allison Ledford

    My love languages are words of affirmation and quality time.

  • Karin

    My love language is Quality Time.

  • Karin

    I sent a Valentine’s Day card to our friends in Argentina. I sent the card, “Friends are God’s Way of Giving Us Hugs.”

  • marissa

    I think my love language is quality time and words of affirmation.

  • Krystle Hummer

    My love language is quality time and physical touch.

  • Barbara

    My love language is Words of Affirmation:) Our church just did his seminar:) It was GREAT!!

  • Emily

    My love language is physical touch.

  • Carol

    Acts of Service. It’s important for me to not only tell someone I love them, but express my love in action as well. That goes for receiving love too. Don’t just tell me you love me, but show me. Lip service is appreciated but when back up with acts of kindness or help, that solidifies the intent to me.

  • Emily

    I sent the we belong to each other card to my husband.

  • http://dreamsrunning.blogspot.com Alisa

    My love lanaguage is undeniably Quality Time!
    I never thought that acts of service would also be up there on the lists, but perhaps it’s because, as a mother, i notice it and appreciate more than almost anything else–even though it’s a rare treasure nowadays :).

  • http://www.baasfamily5.blogspot.com Sal B

    I am definitely a “Word of Affirmation” kind of gal :) I need to hear those words and those reasons. This is how I love to be loved :) Thanks for this chance! I’d love this book!

  • Carol

    I sent the Valentine “Your Friendship is a Gift to Me” to my best friend who I haven’t seen in 2 years. When we speak it’s as if we pick up right where we left off ~ with joy, kindness, understanding, respect, and love. I miss her so.

  • Gina Weeks

    After taking the assessment, I had a tie between words of affirmation and physical touch.

    Happy Valentine’s Day to my sweetheart Randy!

    —Gina <3

    Mine is Quality Time!

  • http://abbiewrites.blogspot.com Abbie

    Wow, I felt like I answered the same three questions 10 times!
    Not surprisingly, my top love language was words of affirmation (*grin*) followed by quality time.

  • Heather

    Mine was spending quality time together, which is probably true…

  • Esther

    My love language is Physical Touch, which I definitely already knew! I’d never taken the assessment before, so it was interesting to see how I rated on the others. :)

  • http://accewillard.blogspot.com Christy from A Heartening Life

    Quality Time was a 10 and Words of Affirmation was a 9. I agree! I’d rather have time with him and encouragement then a gift.

  • http://www.frugalcreativity.com Melissa

    My strongest one is Quality Time, but all except Receiving Gifts are nearly equal.

  • Denise

    I would love to have this book as a tool to communicate better with my husband!

  • http://jennebeker.wordpress.com Jennifer Nebeker

    I recently did the love languages profile for the first time and my strongest were acts of service and physical touch. I hope to sit down with my husband to find out his. I used to like to receive gifts, but over the last 13 years, I’ve found that is not his strength, and I joy in giving gifts to myself now.

    5 Words of Affirmation
    5 Quality Time
    0 Receiving Gifts
    11 Acts of Service
    9 Physical Touch

  • http://www.pipsqueakinc.blogspot.com/ Beth

    Acts of service was way out in the lead…thanks!

  • Judy

    I sent the one daughter Valentine available from DaySpring e-cards to my daughter-in-love of four years and also to my youngest son’s bride, as of next month. He is the youngest of my three sons; before he was born I had a daughter who died at birth (I was 8 months along).
    When I saw the scripture on the card, I was stunned, as it’s the very verse I chose for my daughter’s grave marker: As for God, his way is perfect. (Psalm 18:30 KJV) Now, many years later, I can attest more than ever to the truth of those words!

  • http://www.misslilley.blogspot.com shepard

    My husband and I are both Physical Touch

  • http://livingthebalancedlife.com Living the Balanced Life

    Acts of service and quality time are mine! And hubby pretty well knows that now, after 30 years of marriage!
    Is multitasking the key to productivity?

  • rjb

    quality time, gifts and touch are mine…or anything involving thinking ahead :)

  • http://www.thankfulmomma.blogspot.com ThankfulMomma

    I’ve been told often by strangers over my 14 years of marriage that this book is a “must read” for couples. I adore my husband & thought I knew our love languages…until I took that quiz. (I’m a quality time/touch person.) It opened my eyes that I need to read this book. (And the kids book too!) What a fantastic Valentine’s Day gift!

  • Julie

    Quality time was a close second at 9 – I had already figured that one out but was surprised at acts of service being 10. Maybe cos this isn’t a way my husband shows his love at all. Fortunately for him gifts scored 0!
    Think I’ll have to look into this in more detail but my husband hates this sort of thing so I’ll have to figure his out by trial and error…

  • Allison Schmidy

    My love language was Words of Affirmation. This is so true! I would love to win this book and read more about it!

  • Mary B

    Mine for a long time was receiving gifts. I think because my husband never gave gifts. Anyway, we had a shift in our relationship a few years ago and its totally quality time :)

  • http://www.baskingingrace.blogspot.com Mary Lynn

    Sent the Candy Box Game card for kids to hubby at work. Very appropriate as he always gets stuck eating their chocolates with one bite taken out of them.

  • Karen

    Mine is words of affimation and I agree!

  • http://www.tjsmhanesfamily.blogspot.com Stephanie Hanes

    I sent the Close to My Heart to my grandma. This is her first year without grandpa and they were married for 62 years when he passed away last April. I am so thankful for the legacy of love they have given my husband and I.

  • http://www.incourage.me/2011/02/valentines-giveaway-the-five-love-languages-x50.html#respond Mary

    My love language is acts of service and gifts. It means so much to me when someone takes the time to step into my world to offer love via a helping hand or a little “somethin’ somethin'”. It doesn’t have to cost a lot or anything at all. It’s the thought behind it that matters to me.

  • http://HowGodSpeaks@blogspot.com Terri

    I speak mostly quality time but believe me I like and appreciate all of them. Thank you for the chance to win a book.

    Valentine’s Give Away:
    My love language is Words of Affirmation & quality time with my husband. I’ll take both of those any day over a gift! I also sent an e-card, the one with the dove For My Daughter.

    I sent my husband the beautiful card with the keys…

  • Pat

    My love language is Words of Affirmation…

  • Charity

    I took the test and had 2 high scores! Words of affirmation and Quality time! My husband and I have been married for 17 years, most of which have been wonderful (just being honest). But after all those years, three kids, work, life, etc., I would have to say that quality time is for sure important to me. Without that quality time we can not connect in the Spirit or with eachother!

  • http://growingupriggs.blogspot.com Melody

    Love that online assessment of your love language…sending the website to our small group. Mine is words of affirmation.

    Affirmation! I love hearing those words :) Thanks so much!!

    My love language has changed over the years. Words of Affirmation came through as my top one. They are important to me and communicate love and appreciation. Thank you for your offer of the book. I would love to have to pass on to one of the young women that I mentor. Thank you for your consideration!

  • http://www.inspired-mama.com Chelsey @ Inspired-Mama.com

    I’d love one! :) My love language is “words of affirmation”.
    It’s so true! And I definitely notice how easily my confidence can be torn down if my husband doesn’t speak words of affirmation. I’d love to win this book so my husband and I can read through it together and learn how to love one another in our own languages!

  • http://www.kwana.com Kwana

    Nice giveaway. Mine is Affirmation. I’m not surprised by this.

  • Jenny Ojala

    Words of affirmation—overwhelmingly! I’ve heard about this book for years, but never read it. Hoping I win a copy!! What a fun contest!

  • Danielle

    My love language is Quality Time, which completely makes sense to me.

  • Beth

    My love language is words of affirmation, just ahead of acts of service.

  • http://insertgracehere.com Rena

    I know that my primary love language is physical touch with acts of service being a close second. I know that my husband’s primary love language is acts of service. That’s great seeing as how I can relate somewhat. I still have to stay in tune with the Holy Spirit, however, to be sure I’m staying in tune with what my husband’s wants and “needs” are rather than just creatively folding his underwear. :)
    I know that my oldest daughter’s primary love language is quality time and her secondary gifts. I know that my middle daughter’s love language is the same as her mama’s–physical touch.
    I know all of this because I read this amazing book a very long time ago. I would, however, like to bless someone else with this book should I win a copy. I’ll be sure to brush back up on the five languages first so I can peg my four-year-old. And maybe my grandson, too. But he’s only 14 months old. Perhaps that should wait just a while. ;)

  • http://no Tracy

    Quality time and words of affirmation are my top two. My husbands are, of course, different and it’s SO good to learn how to communicate this without fear! Now we can both be happy and enjoy one another more! Need to have this book in our lib rary!

  • CJ

    My language is Encouraging Words. :)

  • Roksalanna

    I discovered that my Primary Love Language is “Words of Affirmation”. This is certainly accurate as it is important to me to hear people verbalise their feelings for me. I love to hear “I love you” . I am interested to learn more about “The Five Love Languages” so I can communicate better with my loved ones who have different love languages as their primary love language.

    I am about to be married and this book I great. I read it once awhile ago nd would love to read it again ith my fance. I really learned that we are so different and we can’t just do for the other what we would want, we really need to figure out THEIR love language too!

  • Kristel

    Been married for 9 years in March and I knew it was quality time when we first got married.. But it was fun to see how I scored so evenly with quality time being the most important.. EVEN STILL!

  • Harold

    I took the test and was surprised to find that my love language was Quality Time spent with my wife. I believe her love language is Words of Affirmation.

  • beth lehman

    very interesting – had heard about this book – no suprise – I need “acts of service” to feel loved – words of affirmation ran a close second – taking the test has got me thinking…

  • Erin L

    My love language is Words of Affirmation – definitely true. This book has been on my “to read” list for quite some time.

  • Brenda

    My love language is physical touch, which is really surprising because until I met my husband I wasn’t a fan of being touched by other people. I learned that it takes the right person to be comfortable and crave that attention.

  • Julie

    I learned I have quite a bit of work to do!

  • Jennifer

    My love language is quality time! I had no idea! I’m curious to see what my husbands language is!

    Of course…..physical touch…..not a surprise at all!

    I learned that my love language is Quality Time, and this sooo fits me! I have heard of the love language book and started it a few times without finishing, but I need to sit and finish it for sure with my husband. I’d much rather spend time with anyone than to receive gifts or anything like that…very interesting!

    Words of Affirmation!!

    Oh my…I am laughing and shaking my head in agreement. If only I, too, could go back and whack my newlywed self over the head as well.

    I am a “words of affirmation” girl through and through. Which is why this site speaks to me so…it is the best place on the ‘net for affirmation and encouragement!!

    Words of affirmation, which originate from the heart, is a language I understand. Once you read this book and take the time to figure out how those you love … perceive love, it can open up doors of possibilities and numerous ways to creatively say, I Love You!

    Hi Lisa, I went on to Dayspring, picked out my card “The Greatest of These”, wrote my message and tried to send it. But….It said I needed Flash Media and so I tried to load it and I think it did but it has now locked me out of the site. So, my sisters won’t get my card unless I can figure out how to undo what I’ve done. In the meantime a friend from Bible Study sent out cards to all of us and only got some of them out. We think Dayspring has been overwhelmed with users and at one point told her of other ecard sites to go to. But I’m trying to have a HAPPY HEART because Jesus is best valentine a person can have. Thanks for your “Incouragement”! I love Dayspring and all that it offers to us women. In love with Him, Elaine

    Quality time and physical touch although the more kids I have, the more I like acts of service. :) Can’t recommend this book enough. My husband is words of affirmation and that was a really learning experience from my sarcastic but quality time family of origin. Thankfully someone put this in our hands early on before much damage had been done.

    “Acts of Service” was my top, but pretty closely ranked with “Physical touch” :)

    My husband and I both took the quiz. I found out that both he and I share Words of Affirmation as our love language. Quality time and physical touch also seems to be improtant to both of us. I’m excited to know that instead of worrying about if I am giving him what he really needs. (:

  • Alexandra

    I scored high on both giving gifts and words of affirmation… That makes a LOT of sense :)

  • Nicole

    My love language is Words of Affirmation!

  • Shannon

    Acts of Service is my love language. It is soooo true. I love it when my husband helps me around the house! He is such a great help.

  • Susan Keich

    My love language is “quality time”….no surprise to me as that’s the major thing I missed from my dad while growing up.

    My love language is physical touch which kinda took me by surprise… — I think TIME is the heart of it.

  • Chantal

    Well this is a big surprise, NOT, physical touch. My parents need to read this book. I first heard of this book last summer by a good friend, and she surmised my love language was physical touch. Doesn’t surprise me at all, in fact, it affirms what I’ve experienced and not experienced from my family and friends. Most if not all of my friends know I need touch daily to cope, and my family, well, they’ve never understood me to begin with so its not sirprising that they wouldn’t understand this.

    All of a sudden, I cannot send a Valentine’s Day E-Card for some reason. However, I did send myself a Valentine’s Day E-Card on Friday to be sent today, does that still count? It was the Divine Valentine one.

  • Kristy

    Mine is affirmation too! Happy valentine’s day everyone!

    Mine was Quality Time. The second highest was acts of service. Interesting results!

    I tried the Dayspring e-cards. It shows up as empty — even all the other categories are empty. I wonder if my computer is the problem? or if others are having the same issue?

    My Love Language is Words of Affirmaton.

  • Stephanie

    Even though I got home from work too late to get a chance to win the book…it was fun learning that my love language is Quality Time. Blessings!

  • KTK

    My love language is ACTS OF SERVICE! Thanks for the great give-away!

  • Rachel

    Acts of service…if only I could convey that to my hubby!

  • http://www.faithlikemustard.wordpress.com Megan @ Faith Like Mustard

    My love language is acts of service, so I would have been THRILLED if my husband did the laundry instead of buying roses! :)

  • Cathy E.

    My love language is words of Affirmation (10) and Gifts of Service (8).

    My wife and I read this book over 12 years ago. It helped a ton! My love language that I need is quality time. The love language I speak is words of affirmation. My wife’s need is words of affirmation. She speaks acts of service. It took some time of understanding how it all fit together, but it has been an amazing dozen years and we look forward to decades to come!

    Words of affirmation and physical touch.

  • Alicia

    I guessed correctly! Quality time is indeed my most important love language but I think more importantly, I need to learn what my future partner’s love language is!

  • Amanda

    Acts of service!

  • Laury Hoganson

    My Love language is Gifts, but I always feel bad admitting that. Not expensive, just a sweet thoughful gift. Especially something hand made… Love that! :)

    i hope the contest is still open! I assume so since I’m able to leave this comment! My love language is Quality Time.
    thank you so much – Grace

    9 Quality Time
    7 Words of Affirmation
    6 Physical Touch

    The other two were pretty much tied and lower down. Hmmm. I think I might have missed the giveaway – but thank you for this, it helps sorting through myself and my questions in conversation with God :D

    My LL was Quality Time but the others were also close. I think I need to be loved in all 5 ways… such a complicated woman am I! :)
