The Marriage You've Always Wanted by Dr. Gary Chapman: Book Review & Giveaway- Closed

Happy Valentine's Week!!! Yes, week. Don't you just love when Valentine's Day lands on a Friday? I do. It means I get four days to look forward to the love day, then a weekend to relish in how much I AM LOVED! I also just found out that my Valentine doesn't have to work this weekend. So excited. What do I have planned? Nothing out of the ordinary for our nest. School party, basketball practice/game and church. But what makes it special to me is just being with my Valentine and little Valentines. I am so blessed. And if there is a little extra smooching in front of my littles, good for them! GREAT for ME/HIM! Yes, I did just type that. 

So, since it is the LOVE week, I wanted to share about a book I am reading and even GIVE one away to one of my readers.

As anyone who has attended one of his marriage conferences knows, Dr. Gary Chapman’s expertise in marriage begins with the success and failures he and his wife Karolyn have experienced in their marriage for more than 45 years. He is just the man to turn to for help on improving or healing our most important relationships. His own life experiences, plus over thirty-five years of pastoring and marriage counseling, led him to publish his first book in the Love Language series, The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate. Many of the millions of readers credit this continual New York Times bestseller with saving their marriages by showing them simple and practical ways to communicate love.

Since the success of his first book, Dr. Chapman has expanded his Five Love Languages series with special editions that reach out specifically to singles, men, and parents of teens and young children.
He is the author of numerous other books published by Moody Publishers/Northfield Publishing, including Anger, The Family You’ve Always Wanted, The Marriage You’ve Always Wanted, Desperate Marriages, God Speaks Your Love Language, How to Really Love Your Adult Child, and Hope for the Separated. With Dr. Jennifer Thomas, he co-authored The Five Languages of Apology.

Dr. Chapman speaks to thousands of couples nationwide through his weekend marriage conferences. He hosts a nationally syndicated radio program, A Love Language Minute, and a Saturday morning program, Building Relationships with Dr. Gary Chapman, both airing on more than 400 stations. Dr. Chapman and his wife have two grown children and currently live in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where he serves as senior associate pastor at Calvary Baptist Church.

Dr. Chapman holds BA and MA degrees in anthropology from Wheaton College and Wake Forest University, respectively, MRE and PhD degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and has completed postgraduate work at the University of North Carolina and Duke University.
