The Cynical Christian has tagged me with a book meme (don’t worry, it didn’t hurt and if you aren’t sure what a meme is, this will help). The book meme asks that I do the following:

  1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
  2. Open the book to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the next three sentences.
  5. Tag five people.

Step 1: Pick up the nearest book

This actually proved to be a little more difficult than I thought. I actually had two books that were both an almost equal distance from me. So being the rather detailed person I am, I measured (yes, I really did). The closest book was one my wife is currently reading, The five love languages of teenagers, by Gary Chapman. I’m going to read it after her.

Steps 2-4: Page 123, fifth sentence, next 3 sentences

Hey…counting sentences is a bit strange…and well…a bit hard, but anyway:

Now what about the parent who said, “But, I’m doing the same thing I did when he was a child but now he is not responding?” This was the experience of Patsy. “I’ve known for a long time that Teddy’s primary love language is words of affirmation.

So without some context I’m guessing that makes as much sense to you guys as it did me. My wife says the book is really good, I’ll let you know.

Step 5: Tag five people

Now this one’s easy:

  1. Bob at
  2. Pete at Bible Money Matters
  3. Lynnae at Being Frugal
  4. Kacie at Sense to Save
  5. and Jim from Blueprint for Financial Prosperity

So, tag you’re it!

    You’ll have to let me know if the 5 Love Languages of Teenagers is good. I’m going to need it in a few years. :) I liked the one for adults and the one for children.
