In many ways, my husband and I are not the same people who walked down the aisle in that big, beautiful church with pipe organ music and the aroma of gardenias in the air. Everything in our lives has changed except one thing.
We are still working at our love.
Dr. Kim Kimberling offers practical advice and specific strategies in 7 Secrets to an Awesome Marriage that will motivate couples and inform the kind of hard work that goes into building a marriage that will go the distance.
His secrets are concise, memorable one-word commands:
1.STOP Dont keep doing the same things over and over and expecting different results! Claim your baggage, align your expectations with reality, and make changes that will lead to a stronger marriage.
2.START Put God first and your spouse second. Start praying together as a couple; worship and serve together; commit together to seeking God and praying for each other.
3.CONNECT Stop, look, and listen to your spouse to demonstrate that you are present to their words and emotions. Compassion, sincerity and empathy build connectivity in a marriage.
4.ENGAGE Airing conflict (fight right!) is healthy and productive, but choose your battles carefully and make sure that strategies include taking responsibility for your own contribution to the problem and using words that facilitate reconciliation.
5.BALANCE With four kids, scheduling time for each other has been our biggest challenge. Remembering that our marriage is our most important relationship provides motivation for better time and financial management.
6.MINGLE The gift of intimacy is a mingling of souls and will be enhanced when couples respect each other and commit to a 24/7 demonstration of love.
7.FIGHT If marriage is a game, husband and wife are on the same team. If marriage is a battle, husband and wife are fighting on the same side, and marriage is worth fighting for. Dr. Kimberling encourages his readers to make daily choices that enhance trust and strengthen the bond that builds an unshakeable foundation.
The seven secrets are great to know, but will only impact a marriage if the husband and wife put the steps into action. Solomon spoke of the three-fold cord that is not easily broken (Ecclesiastes 4:12), and he spoke more wisdom than he practiced. God stands ready to be the strengthening third in a marriage that nothing can tear apart. Now, thats awesome.

He gives you 7 different things to do that arent hard or way out there, but very practial and very effective to keep you marriage alive the way God wants it to be.
This marriage book closely follows how God wants our marriages to be.
I was very amazed and helped with things that are simple, but very relative to a relationship.
Without Gods help and you putting Him first and following certain guidelines your marriage will fail or be just a relationship of two people living together.
Im so taken with this book and these guidelines that Im buying copies for all of my children. It is an AWESOME book. This is my favorite book of the year. I highly recommend it. A must have for all marriages.
