"With a frank and honest observation on how disability can unravel family unity, this book inspires and equips us to live out our faith as we interact with those we love."

-Joni Eareckson Tada, founder & CEO, Joni and Friends

Between the worry, the doctor’s appointments, and the thousand small challenges of everyday life, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and exhausted. The idea of showing abundant love to every member of your family can feel like a daunting task. Jolene Philo has been there. And in this wise, warm, practical guide, she and Dr. Gary Chapman show you how the 5 love languages can help strengthen your marriage and family life—whatever your needs. Sharing dozens of stories from parents of children with special needs children, they teach you how to:

  • protect your marriage amidst the stress
  • discover and speak the love language of your child—even if they’re nonverbal
  • accommodate the love languages for children with special needs and disabilities
  • show love to every member of your family when you have limited time, money, and energy

Having a special needs child shouldn’t mean sacrificing a full family life. Learn to share love abundantly no matter your circumstances.

Publisher Summary

Special needs parenting puts love to the test.

You've probably already heard the scary statistics and been warned that divorce rates are noticeably higher among special-needs families.

Every interaction needs to have maximum impact in filling a spouse or child's love tank.

This book was written to help you do just that amidst the specific challenges that disability presents. Learn from the love language expert, Dr. Gary Chapman and trusted special needs author, Jolene Philo, about what the 5 Love Languages can do for your family. Plus, it includes tools and techniques for learning the love languages of non-verbal kids or kids with other development delays.
