Book Review: The Language of Love & Respect

The Language of LOVE & RESPECT, Cracking The Communication Code With Your Mate by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs shows married couples how to apply his Love & Respect issues to their marriage. As we all know one of the biggest problems in marriage is communication, but actually it is mutual understanding. We just do not understand each other. We think differently and above all we speak different languages.

Dr. Eggerichs explains how as married couples we can learn how to stop “The Crazy Cycle” and step into “The Energizing Cycle”. He takes easy principles and shows you how to apply them to your life. You can use C-H-A-I-R-S to energize your husband or C-O-U-P-L-E-S to energize your wife. When we learn how to energize each other and apply biblical principals to our marriage, we will not only be closer to each other but closer to Jesus Christ.

I felt like this was a very informative book. As I was reading it I would shake my head and think, yep that is us. I would recommend this to any married couple, or anyone planning on marrying. It is not fast read book, there is a lot of information to digest, but it is a very interesting book.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Until next time... nel


  1. What a great book! Oh ... if only young couples could better understand how intricately connected are these two. One without the other makes for great danger!


  2. No book is a quick read for me! I feel like I have to digest info many times before I can move on the new info. Otherwise, I feel like I am reading without getting anything out of it. What a great review though! Thanks!
