    As we discuss Gods plans for our sexuality at the Edge, we want to invite you to read this connectlit at the same time. In this booklet, we will be further exploring what it means to love. God. Self. Others. Everything you are about to read will have an incredible impact on any relationship.

  • Ways to Love:

    There are primarily 5 different ways that we communicate and receive love. 5 different love languages:

    1. Words of Affirmation:This language uses words to affirm other people. 2. Acts of Service: For these people, actions speak louder than words. 3. Gifts: For some people, what makes them feel most loved is to receive a gift.4. Quality Time: This language is all about giving the other person your undivided attention. 5. Physical Touch: To this person, nothing speaks more deeply than appropriate touch.

    Our encouragement throughout this connectlit will be to live love, more specifically to live out this love languages one at a time, one week at a time.
