Most of us have heard of the Five Love Languages, famously authored by Dr. Gary Chapman nearly three decades ago. They are so powerful in connecting couples that Encompass Connection Center has long incorporated the teachings of the Five Love Languages into its comprehensive relationship skills training.
But there are five more languages that may be just as helpful in building good communication as their more famous counterparts. They also come from Dr. Chapman, along with help from Jennifer Thomas. They are The Five Languages of Apology. Want to know what they are?

It’s hard to believe the holidays are here! If you are like me, you are already making progress on your shopping list for Christmas. One of my favorite parts about the holiday season is seeing the generosity of our community. There’s something about the Christmas spirit that brings out the best in us! You may like to give to organizations that help those in need or you may prefer to do it yourself through adopting families or giving trees. However you spread Christmas joy this year, consider giving the gift of dignity! You may be wondering what that means... allow me to explain!
