About the Book
Book Title: The 6 Hearts of Intimacy
Author: Bob & Cheryl Moeller
Genre: Christian Non-fiction
Release date: September 11, 2018
Understand the way your spouse gives and receives love for greater passion in your marriage.
The 6 Hearts of Intimacy is a “Love Languages” for sex in marriage. Rather than focusing on techniques, it unlocks the secret to true sexual fulfillment by revealing the unique way each spouse gives and receives love. Various books describe the distinct ways in which people express and accept love, but this idea has never before been specifically applied to intimacy in marriage.
Marriage experts Bob and Cheryl Moeller present six biblically based and proven ways to enhance your relationship with your spouse as they describe the Romantic Heart, the Giving Heart, the Guardian Heart, the Companion Heart, the Worshiping Heart, and the Ecstatic Heart. They also expose the “counterfeit hearts” that are present in many people’s marriages, leaving their sexual relationship self-focused and empty.
Many couples spend a lifetime attempting to express their love yet fail to achieve true intimacy. Sensitively written with practical advice and humor, The 6 Hearts of Intimacy shows husbands and wives how to successfully resolve conflicts in their relationship and how to care daily for their spouse’s unique heart of sexual love.

I have been married for seventeen years, and my husband and I are pretty in sync when it comes to this taboo topic. I think because of that, I found it difficult to read through this book. I’m not saying that we don’t ever have issues, but after 17 years of being married to each other, we’ve learned how to sort them all out, we can read each other pretty well, and we’re good at trying to lift each other up and meeting the needs we both have. Do I think it would still be beneficial for newlyweds, or those who are struggling with intimacy in their marriage? Perhaps.
The authors do a great job of writing stories that you can relate to in each chapter. Both men and women can read this and understand the POV that is being offered – which I think it’s important to see both sides of the story. That being said, I would have liked there to be even more biblical references, specific verses to be exact, provided to the reader. It’s important that Christ be the head of our relationship, and while I do think this was implied throughout the book, I wanted it to really stand out. Be screamed almost. That is the first thing that couples need to learn, even when discussing their intimacy with each other. Don’t misunderstand what I am saying here – the authors did provide biblical references, and a few verses in each chapter, but I just wanted more. I wanted more specific references that I could highlight in my bible and look back on years down the road.
I think this could serve as a great conversation starter for a couple reading it together. It offers a chance to discuss their wants, desires, and expectations of intimacy in the relationship. An opportunity to remember that we are all wired differently, and need to keep the lines of communication open during our marriage so we don’t fall into ruts that lead to disastrous situations. The readers who enjoyed the book about love languages will enjoy this book as well.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Bob and Cheryl
You have God’s permission to enjoy sex within your marriage. He invented sex; He thought it up to begin with. You can learn to enjoy it and, husbands, you can develop a thrilling, happy marriage with ‘the wife of your youth.’ If your marriage has been a civil-war battlefield or a dreary wasteland, instead of a lovers’ trysting place, all that can change. You see, God has a perfect plan for marriage, which we may choose to step into at any time, and the mistakes of the past can be dealt with and left behind.
Indeed, the Ecstatic Heart finds its fulfillment in the intoxicating experience of joyful physical intimacy with your spouse that God Himself ordained, created, and blessed. The Ecstatic Heart celebrates married physical intimacy as a gift from God.
