  • "There are few voices I trust as much as Kim Kimberling when it comes to marriage, love, and relationships. For decades he's been teaching us what it means to connect with others, to practice self-giving love in our relationships, and how to do these things through the power of the Holy Spirit. What a gift he's now given us here in his newest book! The wisdom and insight he shares seems to drip off of every page. But these are not just heady, theoretical ideas. These are practical, tangible, do-able things that add value to our lives and the lives of those we love. I cannot recommend this book strongly enough."
    Clayton King, teaching pastor at Newspring Church, author of Stronger and Overcome
  • "Sometimes the answers you're looking for are far simpler than you think. I love this book because it's so practical, so simple and so deadly accurate. Having been married for over 25 years and in ministry for almost as long, I can see how 14 Keys to Lasting Love can make good marriages better, boring marriages interesting, and even help dead marriages live."
    Carey Nieuwhof, Author and Founding Pastor, Connexus Church
  • "I felt I was getting the amazing counseling, couching and insight from Dr. Kim Kimberling on every page of 14 Keys to Lasting Love. This book is so very practical and hopeful.

  • "Weaving in stories from his counseling practice, Dr. Kimberling provides practical insight for navigating a broad range of issues that impact marriage, including several important ones you've likely not seen covered in a marriage book before! 14 Keys is a great read for any couple, regardless of length of marriage or season, and will serve as a marriage check-up and a conversation starter with your spouse."
    J. Parker, Christian intimacy author and speaker
  • "As a young bride, I sat on the sofa and cried. My real marriage was not like the movies. We were both Christians and believed God brought us together. I assumed his divine endorsement would make everything easy. But it didn't, and it wasn't. It was hard and not at all what I expected. I wish we had this book in our early years. It is filled with essential tools for building a relationship you can both enjoy. Instead of a throwing out a magical checklist, it empowers couples to explore, define and determine to do the work that will make their unique marriage work. As Dr. Kimberling states, 'Nothing just works itself out in marriage.' Creating a vibrant life together takes effort, but any couple who grabs hold of these 14 keys will save time, energy and tears."
