Church & Love Languages

Part 1: Church
Sunday’s have changed my life for the good: Thankfully my husband, therapist, and best friend have encouraged me to go. Without church I would be sitting home miserable, depressed and alone.
This month’s theme at Church was "Here to there”. Today was also the 2 year anniversary so they were focusing on the accomplishments over that two years.

Here is a verse that was provided for the day at Church:

Mathew 16:18 “And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
-          Breaking this verse down: Matthew is the only Gospel that uses the word “Church”.
-          The Greek word for Church is “a group of people called together".
Another part of my life right now is Reading "The 5 Love Languages". (if you have any type of marital communication problems I highly suggest it!

2: The 4 Love Languages (book)- by Gary Chapman (highly recommended)
Our Marriage counselor suggested reading this book. It’s a great book helping how to learn what type of communication/ action your spouse needs to understand.We have communication problems, especially since he's a drill Sergeant we never get time together.

“Your Turn” ( End of Chapter Questions) w/ My Answers
1.      (Words Of Affirmation Chapter)
          Share instances with your spouse when words had a profound impact on your life—positivity or negatively
                     Positive: When he verbally says I’m a good wife, compliments the way I do things or saying I look pretty
                    Negative: When he says I’m demanding because I want the house to stay clean and organized.
2.      (Quality Time Chapter)
           What in your marriage detracts from spending time together ?
                                                              His job * He's a Drill Sergeant* usually gone from 4 am - 10 pm
                                                              The computer * He plays facebook games when he does have time and I blog *
                                                              He is usually to tired to do anything and crashes on the couch *he's always sleeping *

(If this post doesn't make sense it's because I haven't slept in 24 hours because of insomnia (if you find errors let me know.)

Also how do you communicate with your husband when hes never around? What books do you suggest on marriage, military, communication ect?


  1. My husband is about to be deployed and we are starting to struggle greatly, I don't know how we are going to communicate {literally}. There is going to be no internet, no phones. We have to use the good ole snail mail system. & we might get a fuzzy call every once in a while on a radio thing...I might have to check into those books.

    I need to get back in church also, I was thinking that the other day!
