Our Love Pulse is an app designed to not only measure how you are personally growing in your capacity to love, but it provides an opportunity to see if your growth is noticeable to others. Using the Love Chapter, 1 Corinthians 13, as a guide, the first step is to measure your progress by putting your name in front of the characteristics of love. Are you patient? Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10.

Awareness is a vital part of changing.

We don’t usually see ourselves the way others do, however, so Step 2 allows someone close to you (particularly your spouse) to give you a second opinion. Ask your spouse to rate you on each of the 10 characteristics of love. You can total the scores to give you a basic idea of how you are doing. However, do not focus on the scores. Instead, note the areas you most need to work on and focus your attention on developing new thinking and behavior patterns in those areas. Look to your spouse for constructive critique and for encouragement.
