Review of Love Nudge For Couples and Giveaway

1200x628v1

If you are at all familiar with the 5 Love Languages, you know that everyone has a specific way they prefer to have love demonstrated to them.  For example, some people prefer acts of service, while others prefer physical contact.  But what if there was a way to go beyond just reading a book and taking that head knowledge instead to a heart level to essentially “train” yourself to properly illustrate and demonstrate level.

Just like an athlete needs to train to be successful, relationships require training as well.  Love Nudge For Couples aims to provide just that training.  Perhaps you have a spouse who provides you with fancy and expensive gifts, but you would prefer him to provide loving touches.  Then you wonder why this is the case.  In 5 Love Languages, Dr. Gary Chapman details the different ways people prefer to have love demonstrated.

But what do you do with that knowledge?  Love Nudge for Couples provides a way to do exactly that.  With a simple download of an app, it is easy to set up an account to get started.  Once the app is downloaded and you set up the account, you then take a quiz which provides results on your preferred language of love.  You also have the ability to set reminders to make sure you are attempting to demonstrate the desired responses. You then set goals to help you tangibly demonstrated love. Then you can send your spouse a link so the two of you can connect.

When my husband and I took the quizzes, we both felt like the results provided a reasonable assessment of how we prefer to have love expressed.  Then once we were connected, we were able to send each other love nudges to determine how the other’s love tanks were.  The concept of this app is really good.  However, I believe it is best used by people who have cell phones that can connect immediately.  We, unfortunately, did not have phones with that capability.  For us, we could only send the love nudges while at our home or someone else with WiFi capability.

Marriage and relationships take hard work, I feel this app does an excellent job providing assistance with this.  So if you are looking for a way to effectively connect with your spouse and speak the proper love language of your spouse, check out Love Nudge For Couples for yourself.

Finding and Speaking Voices of Truth

Affirmations

Have you ever been going through life and suddenly you feel as though God is trying to get your attention?  Well, that is how I have felt for the last week or so.  Everywhere I look, from a course, I am doing, to books I am reading, to blog posts and more, I am constantly being bombarded with the idea of positive affirmations.  Specifically, I am seeing the need to speak them out loud.  So I guess God is trying to get my attention.

In my case, I am supposed to be writing out and then speaking out positive statements regarding changes I want to make in my life.  I have started writing them down.  Writing words comes fairly easy, but speaking those some words is more of a challenge.

We need to be able to speak words, whether orally or written that God will bring to fruition.  So I guess I know what I am going to be doing this week.  I am going to be writing down my affirmations and then recording myself speaking them out loud.

Now I need to make something clear, I do not like listening to myself on a recording.  I do not mind recording other people, but I do not want to record myself.  But I guess this is God’s way of encouraging me to be willing to follow the words of the song, “Voice of Truth” from the movie Facing the Giants.:

To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He’s holding out His hand

I think this particular song is one of my favorites from the movie Facing the Giants.  So I need to step out in faith and believe that God will be there for me.  I need to face and slay my fear of listening to myself speak.  I need to have faith and confidence in what God wants for me.

I am participating in Mom Boot Camp 2.0 with Hannah Keely, and does she ever have a way of taking away all the layers and getting to the heart of things, even when it is hard.  So I am going to speak my affirmations.  I am going to believe that God loves me with an everlasting love and wants to provide an abundance for me.  So I am stepping out in faith and believing in the power of the spoken word.  I believe that nothing is impossible for God!

So do you need a “voice of truth” or maybe to face some giants?  Maybe you already speak or write affirmations out for yourself, or maybe you need some encouragement to do so. I would love to hear back from you about whether you are speaking or writing out your affirmations.

#fmfparty – Build

FMF-Square-Images-Round-5-3

So today I am doing something new here on the blog, I am participating in the #fmfparty , the Five Minute Friday writing prompt.  The prompt for today is build, and I definitely want to build up this blog and its following.  I want to build more content by writing more posts.  I want to share about my writing, our family and where I would like to get to in the future.

I would like to build connections with my readers.  After all, if I just wanted to write for me, I would choose to keep a personal journal rather than posting for everyone who cares to look at my posts to read.

I also want to build a writing habit.  For the last year, I have struggled with staying on top of posting here.  But I want to change that this year.  I want to build something that allows for me to connect with you, the reader.

I want to build my relationship with God and then share that with you through my posts.  But while I am building my blog, I want to build my relationships with my family.  So until next week, happy Friday.
