FamilyLife Blended® Minute
When Not to Love Best
Believe it or not, sometimes it's best not to love best.
About the Guest
The Five Love Languages taught us how to best love family and friends by knowing their primary love language. Here's added wisdom from Dr. Gary Chapman and my book Building Love Together in Blended Families: Just because a stepparent knows a child's primary language doesn't mean it will be well received. Begin with Acts of Service, Gifts, and Words of Affirmation, then Quality Time and Physical Touch. Progress from the least intrusive language to the most intimate and watch love come alive.
