It’s best to begin with Acts of Service, then Gifts, Words of Affirmation, and then Quality Time and Physical Touch. Progress from the least intrusive language to the most intimate. Watch love come alive.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Millions have read The Five Love Languages by my friend Dr. Gary Chapman. Gary insightfully teaches how to best love friends and family by knowing their primary love language and then speaking it clearly.

Here’s a bit of added wisdom for blended families: let’s say you’re a stepparent and you know your child’s primary love language. It doesn’t mean it will be received or that you should speak it. It might feel overwhelming or intrusive to the child. It’s best to begin with Acts of Service, then Gifts, Words of Affirmation, and then Quality Time and Physical Touch. Progress from the least intrusive language to the most intimate and watch love come alive. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
