Love is a Verb

Gary Chapman
Also Available In

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 stranger;
- 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

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.

Customer Reviews For "Love is a Verb"

Write Your Own Review
Beautifully Written
5 stars By Genevieve, Oct 19 2012
A number of beautiful life-changing stories about things that people did out of love. In a world where love seems to easy to be said, this book reminded us that to love is not only words. To love is to act compassionately towards one another. It might means neglecting your own needs for the ones that you love the most.

A must buy for the ones who truly wants to learn to love.

Lovely
4 stars By Rachel, Jul 28 2012
Using a handful of true stories, this touching book inspires again and again, the very essential idea that love is an action.  It is something you have to do, and not merely a feeling, whether it is mustering up the courage to call up an estranged parent or sitting down during a broken marriage to make a list of why you love your spouse.  Great as a gift or for your own reading.
