Valentine's Day

This is the time of year that we remember why we love those close to us. Then we need to make sure we communicate it to them in the way that is most received and meaningful. I found the 5 Love Languages book by Gary Chapman and it made a huge difference in how I communicated love to my family members. 
The first way is through Physical Touch – hugging, kissing, back rub, holding hands. The second way is Acts of Service – doing things that are helpful and wanted. The third language is Gifts – getting small or large things that show you remembered them (flowers and candy are good for Valentine’s). The fourth way is Words of Affirmation – saying positive, encouraging statements. The last way is Quality Time – carving out blocks of time to spend with the, doing something they like.  
Observe your loved one, and one or more language should stick out to you. Then learn to “speak” your love to them in their language!

Note: To increase efficiency and make it easier for our volunteers, we have changed the intake process for our participants from paper forms to an application that can be accessed on an iPad. Each police department now has an iPad for our volunteers to use. If you’re a previously trained Angel, please register for a Refresher Training session, which includes training for the iPad intake process.
