I love what you are doing

Thank you Dr. Kim for your dedication. Like you I believe in true love and lasting love. We need more people like you that help couples to stay in love.

BlessedBunch ,

Yikes! Enneagrams?!

Please prayerfully research the history behind enneagrams and reconsider promoting.

kaitron ,

Just ok

There are some really solid tips in this podcast, however Dr Kim really misses the mark of what the Bible commands for a marriage relationship. Rarely does he mention how submitting to God will solve many problems or how sin is at the root of all issues.

If keeping God at the center of your marriage isn’t a priority for you, then this is for you.
