Faith@Home Marriage Event: The Wynn's

Posted by on

Cathy and Jeff Wynn have great advice for couples. They learned early in their marriage that they had to learn AND speak each other’s love language. By discovering their love languages, their communication with each other was much better!

Do you speak your spouse’s language? Download the Love Language app and determine each of your love languages. Be intentional this week by communicating in your spouse’s language:

Physical Touch: Hug your spouse several times a day for no reason.

Words of Affirmation: Don’t say anything negative to your spouse each day. Instead, express gratitude.

Acts of Service: Cheerfully take over a task your spouse does not like to do.

Quality time: Choose to spend time with your spouse over an activity you usually enjoy doing alone.

Receiving Gifts: Allocate part of your personal budget to make or buy your spouse a thoughtful gift.

Get to know the Wynns! 

The biggest challenge of marriage?

Jeff- Having different love languages. Cathy's primary love language is quality time which is not quantifiable.  Mine is physical touch which can take just a few moments to qualify.

Cathy- Communication.

Where did you meet?

Cathy- We met at a carnival in Harlingen, TX.  He was a carnie, who worked on the Gravitron ride.

Jeff- Cathy and I met in the Wal-Mart parking lot in Harlingen, TX. Few folks know that I was working for a carnival at the time, running a ride called the Gravitron.  

Do you have a couple goal?

To be debt-free and to raise our four children to love the Lord as in Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." 

Favorite gift given to each other?

Cathy- My favorite gift that I gave him was a massage certificate (because he refused to use it, and I didn't want to let it go to waste Emoji).
