About the Book
This book offers real, practical, readable marriage advice from a Christian counselor who has worked with couples for thirty years.

Strong, successful marriages require hard work and a guide. Dr. Kim Kimberling is that wise guide, and this book and its tools show wives and husbands how the kind of communication and intimacy that results in loving, lifelong marriages can be theirs.

Kimberling offers insights like connecting every day in spite of what’s in the way, learning how to fight in the right ways, stopping the insanity of doing the same thing over and over even when it isn’t working, and finding that the best sex ever is well within the context of Christian marriages.

7 Secrets to an Awesome Marriage is filled with stories—stories of people who struggle and stories of people who struggle and win.

Marriage books are highly sought after and represent a strong felt need by consumers. Marriages are in jeopardy as much as ever with nearly 50% ending in divorce. The secrets in this book work and offer couples real hope and a template for change.

My Take on the Book
This was a well written book that breaks down strategies to put in place in your marriage to get things set and moving on the right track. The seven things that the author shares include:

  1. Stop Doing the Same Thing
  2. Put God First
  3. Connect
  4. Engage
  5. Put in time
  6. Sex
  7. Fight for your marriage

Each of the sections were well thought out and shared some great advice. Many of the tips are ones that I have heard before in numerous places, but this was great as it brought everything together on one place.

The book is full of Christian views of marriage, but many of the tips and advice are universal in nature. The book was a quick read with ideas and strategies that you can start working on right away.
