Inspiring true stories of lives changed by love with a "Love Lesson" written by Gary Chapman following each story demonstrating true love in action.

Gary Chapman, bestselling author of The Five Love Languages, shares forty uplifting true stories from everyday people like

  • Doris, who chose to love her husband when what she really wanted to do was run away
  • Loretta, whose family was mended by love in action
  • Faith, who learned how to love a mother who had become a strange
  • Laquita, who finally fell in love with her husband after forty years
  • Jackie, who found the courage to love someone who seemed truly unlovable

Because love isn't just a feeling.
Love is a choice, and love is something we all need to do.
Love is a verb.

"To last for the long haul and through the stresses and complexities of life, love has to be more than something we feel. It has to be something we do. We have to demonstrate it concretely in our marriages and families, among our friends and acquaintances, and, yes, even among our enemies.

And that's what this book is about. In the following pages, you'll see examples of people just like you--like all of us--who learned to take the obstacles, the lemons they face in life, and turn them into satisfying, emotional thirst-quenching nectar. These are the success stories that make you want to go out and try harder." --Gary Chapman

Since 1979, Gary Chapman has written more than twenty books. His book The Five Love Languages has sold five million copies in English alone and has been translated into thirty-six languages including Arabic and Hindi. In addition to his busy writing and seminar schedule, Gary Chapman is a senior associate pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where he has served for thirty-six years. Gary and his wife, Karolyn, have been married for forty-five years and have two adult children and two grandchildren.

From the Inside Flap:

Dr. Gary Chapman has spent his life helping people communicate love more effectively and in turn build more satisfying and lasting relationships. His book "The Five Love Languages" is a regular on the "New York Times Best Sellers" list - even after being in print for fifteen years - and has made the term 'love language' a part of everyday speech. "Love Is a Verb" takes his teaching to the next level. Rather than a typical marriage self-help book filled with lengthy explanations of principles and techniques, it is a compilation of true stories displaying love in action. These stories - written by everyday people - go straight to the hearts of readers, who often say that illustrations are the most effective parts of a book. Gary Chapman adds a 'Love Lesson' to each story, showing readers how they can apply the same principles to their own relationships.
