The key to learning how to love is to understand the principle of the love cup: When you’re full of love, you tend to treat others lovingly. You fill your loved ones by showering them with the five most important characteristics of love: Care, Respect, Acceptance, Forgiveness and Trust.
In this book, you will discover practical and creative ways to keep your family’s love cups full to overflowing. You will learn how to recognize the signs of a cup that is dangerously low so you can fill it before family members feel the pain of frustration, bitterness, anger, or rejection. Just as important, you’ll learn what you can do to keep the love in your own cup to the brim so it can splash over onto others.
No one is too young or too old not to benefit from love–either as a recipient or as a giver. And if you know the true source of love, there is always an abundant supply—for when you give it away, it has a way of coming back.
“Love one another, as I have loved you.” –Jesus Christ
