Intimacy is often something that thought of as only the act of sex and that is a taboo topic among many Christians. However intimacy is actually defined as closeness. We often talk to singles about what they should be doing before marriage (waiting) but leave them hanging on what happens after - both physically and emotionally. Healthy emotional Intimacy that leads to fulfilling physical intimacy. In The 6 Hearts of Intimacy, Bob and Cheryl Moeller take you through the different ways people express their Intimacy style.
This book felt like a great refresher for me. We've been married almost 19 years and I've heard some of these ideas before but not defined as different distinct characteristics. Having them defined this way and showing how to do it well and the counter side of doing it poorly is really helpful to see where you might be failing. I took this book as a way to reflect on myself and what I can give to my spouse by bettering myself. I loved how there were many personal experiences shared and even stories to help explain each heart. Those personal antidotes helped cement the ideas. It is easy to relate to many of the 6 Hearts and pull from each one. The best part for me is that they backed up all of the thoughts with scripture. The last chapter pulls that together for you which is greatly appreciated. I think this was a well written and helpful book.

Genre: Christian Non-fiction

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.

Guest Post from Bob and CherylYou 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.
