Your Child’s Love Languages

Gary Chapman has a great article on Focus on the Family’s website.  It is about the 5 love languages, and how we can identify them within our children.  It is such a great reminder that we need to find out how each of our children expresses and wants to be loved.  Every child is different, so one may need affirmation, while another touch, and another quality time.  Once we know how each child accepts and gives love, we need to use that to consistently show them they are loved.  God loves us unconditionally, so we should love others that same way, especially our children.

Check out the article here, and use what you have learned to love your children more deeply.

Ken Leaman

Ken Leaman has a passion for students, and for over 30 years has been volunteering within churches and other ministries, leading and mentoring students. These churches are:

Ken works for Amazon Web Services as a Support Operations Manager. Ken has also served on the boards of other non-profits like the DFW Technology Prayer Breakfast, and the DFW Help Desk Institute.

Ken, and his wife Karen, have been married for 31 years, and have a 30 year old son. They live in Allen, TX, just North of Dallas.

As Ken and Karen repeatedly witnessed many Christian students who were active within the Church walk away from their faith shortly after graduating high school, they grew frustrated.  Studies show that about 70% of young adults leave their faith after graduation, which is a huge issue since they are the future of the Church.  After much prayer and searching God's direction for many years, the Leaman's felt His calling to start a ministry to address this problem.  In 2014, they gathered like minded Christian professionals to help begin Young Adults of Worth Ministries.  We believe that this ministry is from God, and it will be blessed by Him for His glory alone.
