My education of an apology was, "say your sorry, and do you accept the apology"! Thank God for this book. I have learned why I WAS how I WAS and how to fix it. This book explained, taught and encouraged me. I implemented the knowledge immediately and my husband and family are reaping the benefits. My husband actually said, "Wow, you really are changing and trying". I was able to apologize for the past lack of knowledge and know how to apologize. After my excitement I decided to make it a family study. As a family we listened to the Chapters describing the languages, finding your own and apologizing yourself. We made sure that we all knew each other's apology languages and established if we NOW didn't apologize the correct way that we didn't mean the apology. This has been a real blessing to ME, my family and friends. Thank you so much and God bless you, for you have made a legacy for yourself that is surely making your Heavenly Father proud!
I listened to this audio because my friend says I have a hard time letting go of the past. I realized that was true and I partially knew why. After reading this book, I realized exactly why I get that uneasy feeling when I receive an apology after feeling betrayed. The best thing about this book is that it helps you understand what you need to hear or see to forgive a person. I think everyone should read this book solely for the purpose of learning to give a good apology. Apologies are definitely understated and I'm glad Gary and Jennifer wrote such a detailed book about giving and receiving them.
This book truly changed my life! I wish I would've had it years ago, but I do believe that God has His timing for everything and this book is right on time for me. As a school administrator, I will be incorporating this into what I do with my students and my staff as well as adding information from it in the book that I'm currently working on. It should be a book that everyone reads and I don't say that about most of the books that I read. This will truly open the door to changing your life if you are willing to accept that you may need to apologize for some things that you've done. I have began my quest and it is truly liberating. Many blessings--
Forgiveness and Love go hand in hand. We can't know one without the other. We can't grow or be at peace with ourselves or our spouses if we carry unforgiveness in our hearts.
Excellent tools and insight on overcoming anger, bitterness and unforviveness.
I also recommend "The 5 Love Languages"
as always, Chapman does a great job reading his books. the stories were not as helpful to me as the 5 love language stories.
with that said, it is still a very important subject and the first part of the book is an absolute must read...the parts on forgiveness and teaching people to apologize may be helpful for other but wasn't that helpful to me...but i was taught to apologize and i learned about forgiveness when i was younger.
overall a very important subject and everyone should be aware of the different languages people use for apologies.
I love to read and listen to audio books.
I loved this book - and am applying the principles into my life as we speak. It's great to use in a business setting and in a home setting. I recommend to all who wish to improve their relationships.
This book offers such a clear and compelling argument for reconciliation of relationships through apology.
The breakdown of the apology languages and the elements to a well received apology is enlightening.
I recommend this to every living human being, especially Christians like myself, who think they have an understanding of forgiveness. This is a game changer!
