“Forgiveness is not a feeling; it is a commitment.”
Gary Chapman, The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate

“I am amazed by how many individuals mess up every new day with yesterday.”
Gary Chapman, The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate

We are giving credit and praise.”
Gary Chapman, The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate
