It’s back to school time which easily translates into back to busy time. When our focus shifts towards the kids, 4th quarter at work, and new routines, we can lose sight of our marriage. Since this podcast is all about helping keep you in balance, I thought it would be best to bring back our go to marriage expert, Kimberly Walton from Cherished Wives.com. This is a two-part series teaching us the ways that we can be proactive and protect our marriage. Today, you’ll be getting part one and I know it will bless you! This interview was originally aired two years ago, but even if you listened then, you’ll get value out of it now. I know we did!

About Our Guest

Kimberly Walton is a marriage mentor, speaker, writer, and women’s retreat leader who specializes in working with Christian women to create and nurture wildly successful marriages.

She is the founder of Cherished Wives International, a coaching practice dedicated to strengthening marriages and increasing intimacy and connection through her unique INLOVE approach. The INLOVE program addresses the 6 principles that are part of successful marriage by focusing on the whole person and taking a wholehearted approach.

Kimberly comes from a place of personal experience and draws on her formal and informal education to mentor on the “how-to’s” for developing greater intimacy, increasing passion, embracing vulnerability, and strengthening relationships.

Kimberly believes in a solution focused approach to strong marriages and blends in humor, tenderness, scripture and even a touch of call-you-on-your-stuff when working with her clients whether it be in a one to one setting or a large group.

Kimberly is married to the love of her life and lives in California.
