Plus! 3 Things That’ll Make Your Life Better, Peanut Sauce Recipe, & The Best Tip For Parents
Welcome to February! Everyone knows that this month is synonymous with all things… LOVE. So, what better time to talk about the 5 Love Languages!? Am I right or am I right?
Oh! And this weekend (tomorrow!) happens to be my 50th birthday!
That’s right, Super Bowl! Take that!
Relationship Chat — The 5 Love Languages (which are YOU?)
Isn’t it crazy that The 5 Love Languages, by Dr. Gary Chapman, was released in 1995? It seems to me that people are STILL talking about it as if it were hot-off-the-presses! Actually, news flash: It continues to pop onto the NYT Best Sellers List every few months! And is currently #1 on Amazon in the categories of Marriage, and Love & Romance (with a perfect 5 star rating, no less)!
Well, if you ask me, that’s testament to its rock-solid thesis.
If you’re unfamiliar with the notion behind the book, let me quickly explain…
Here’s the idea: You and your significant other, individually, express and receive love in a particular way. 5 ways, to be exact. When you understand what that way is — for both of you — then communication is on another level of awesome!
But they don’t just apply to romantic relationships! They can definitely be used for friendships, family, co-workers, and just about anyone you know!
And that includes you and me. Allow me to elaborate (and share with you the 5 Love Languages, too) in my featured video of the week!
And oh! If you do pre-order the 131 Book (as mentioned in the video), go HERE and enter your order # (at the “I’ve ordered already” icon) and you’ll receive a free virtual coaching program based around mindset!
THIS IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO PURCHASE THE BOOK!
This way, we both get to perform an Act Of Service! Win/win!

Food Chat — Peanut Sauce Recipe! Easy & Delish!
Speaking of love languages, everyone has a little of each of them. However, 2 tend to be more prevalent — one primary and another secondary. For me, Acts Of Service falls into the secondary category. And, let me tell you, Bret executes this language of mine EVERY day in the kitchen. I’m so blessed! But, what many of you may not know, is that sometimes I will step foot in the kitchen myself. Sure, it causes Bret severe palpitations when this happens, but sometimes a girl has got to explore.
And explore I have! Dude, this peanut sauce recipe is the bomb dot com, thank you very much! It’s so easy. Just 3 steps. Oh, and please ignore Bret’s rude comments at the end….
Just For Fun Chat – The Best Tip For Parents
When you Google The 5 Love Languages, you’ll even find a whole bunch of info on (and books dedicated to) children, teens, and parents. The parent / child relationship is as beautiful as it is complicated. Well, I’m going to save all you parents a bunch of time and trouble here… no need to seek books, podcasts, blogs, or Youtube videos on how to best declutter your home when the kids are running wild! I got you, boo…
By the way, if you’d like to take The 5 Love Languages Quiz, you can do that here!
I’d recommend to do it when you’re relaxed and not in a rush. It takes about 15 minutes or so.
Let me know in the comments YOUR love language!
Oh, and have fun on Super Bowl Sunday! Remember to keep hydrated!
