The book encourages both male and female to examine their live to see how they understand love, so each party can better communicate love to one to another.

It's a powerful book for those who are courting and even longtime married couples. A fresh insight in the word love. One love language the book refers to is "sacrificial love".

"Where His presence and glory dwell no sin or sickness can coexist"The Holy Spirit was leading me to study healing. The above line opened my eyes to see that His presence was a pre requisite to healing. In turn this lead me to ask "What is your presence Lord?" The following writings document my journey to His presence. As I'm writing the Holy Spirit is reminding of when I got saved. I'd read the scriptures night and day unending. Holy Spirit revealed truth of Jesus Christ so profound. Intimacy has nothing to do with the crowd, but with God and I alone. My surroundings may never hear, but God hears and sees in this quiet place. I still have the desire to preach. After 17 years of being saved, the Lord allowed me to be satisfied with the better part. Thank you Holy Spirit Amen.
