Love As A Way of Life

What a great week this is going to be, a blog book tour about LOVE. Isn't that a subject almost everybody in the world likes to discuss? There will be several books reviewed this week, so don't miss a day and enjoy these great books. Our first one is by well-known author Gary Chapman [The Five Love Languages] and Elisa Stanford. I was so surprised how much I enjoyed this book.

In this short "90-day adventure that makes love a daily habit". I opened it and couldn't put it down, reading it all the way through. But now taking it as a daily reading to change some of my own love habits. Its an awesome book to read by yourself, with a spouse, or someone you really are about. Getting good habits in love, is truly an investment in the lives of other people.

Chapman breaks down this devotional into nine sections, which centers around seven biblical principles. One that got my attention is about getting respect. That's one of the biggest hindrances to relationships I deal with in counseling with people. They simply don't feel respected in their homes, on their jobs, in their churches. The question then becomes do we want love, are we able to be a person of love.

To become a person who consistently loves others, you first need to be a loving person. In this companion devotional to Love as a Way of Life, you'll find inspiration for letting love guide the way you respond to others in every situation. Can you imagine what life in general would become if we could each take 90-days to change our love habits?

Dr. Gary Chapman is the author of twenty-six books, including the New York Times bestseller The Five Love Languages, with more than 4 million copies in print. His daily radio program, A Love Language Minute, is broadcast on more than 100 stations nationwide. Dr. Chapman, a graduate of Moody Bible Institute, Wheaton College , Wake-Forest University , and Southwestern Seminary, serves on a church staff in North Carolina .
