The Five Love Languages Collection brings together the mega-selling Five Love Languages titles. In these seven volumes, relationship counselor Gary Chapman equips you with the tools you need to determine—and utilize—the love languages you and those close to you speak. You’ll learn to demonstrate your love to your spouse, children, and teenagers using the love languages they understand. Moreover, you’ll be able to show how they can most effectively communicate love to you—by teaching them the love languages you respond to best.
Also included is Chapman’s The Five Languages of Apology. Apologizing means more then just saying you’re sorry. This volume will teach you to speak in the five languages of apology: Expressing Regret, Accepting Responsibility, Making Restitution, Genuinely Repenting, and Requesting Forgiveness. It will also teach you to apply these languages to specific situations, including apologizing in the family, in a dating relationship, in the workplace, and to yourself.
Perfect for couples, singles, counselors, and pastors, The Five Love Languages Collection will enhance the way you communicate—and experience—love forever!

What Are the Five Love Languages?
Words of Affirmation
Verbal appreciation speaks powerfully to persons whose primary Love Language is “Words of Affirmation.” Simple statements or words of encouragement are sometimes all a person needs to hear to feel loved. If a loved one listens for “Words of Affirmation,” offering encouragement will help him or her to overcome insecurities and develop greater confidence.
Quality time is more than mere proximity. It’s about focusing all your energy on your mate. Unless all of your attention is focused on your mate, even an intimate dinner for two can come and go without a minute of quality time being shared. Quality time can involve quality conversation (with an emphasis on self-revelation) and quality activities that build memories.
Some mates respond well to visual symbols of love. If you speak this love language, you are more likely to treasure any gift as an expression of love and devotion. The gift of self is also an important aspect of this love language. Sometimes all your mate desires is for someone to be there for them, going through the same trials and experiencing the same things. Your body can become a very powerful physical symbol of love.
Acts of Service
Sometimes simple chores around the house can be an undeniable expression of love. Even simple things like laundry and taking out the trash require some form of planning, time, effort, and energy. Just as Jesus demonstrated when he washed the feet of his disciples, doing humble chores can be a very powerful expression of love and devotion to your mate.
Many mates feel the most loved when they receive physical contact from their partner. For a mate who speaks this love language loudly, physical touch can make or break the relationship. However, what type of touch makes you feel secure is not necessarily what will make your partner happy. It is important to learn each other’s dialects. That way you can make the most of your hugging, kissing, and other physical contacts.
