NOTEWORTHY QUOTES

“I always tell people to look at your spouse’s heart. See where the relationship with God is. I think when trust is broken, initially you are not going to trust that person, but you can trust God within that person. You can see that the person is being transformed.” - Dr. Kim

“The job for the spouse who has been offended though is to give them a chance. If you never take that risk again to trust them again at some point, you won’t ever have the marriage you want.” - Dr. Kim

“Begin to pray for your spouse to believe the truth about what you say and do. Continue to share how important it is to you. But know that until that trust is rebuilt your marriage is going to be limited.” - Dr. Kim

NOTEWORTHY QUOTES

“When you see their heart and that they are really trying to do their best really love Jesus and pursuing him. Then I think it is a lot easier and there is a security to say OK I will trust.” -Dr. Kim

“You can tell somebody, ‘trust me trust me trust me’, but if they have not worked through the issues that are causing them not to trust you, and you know in your heart that you are being trustworthy-then I think you are going to need a third party in there. So Christian Counseling is the next big step in there.” -Dr. Kim

“We don’t value trust until it’s broken” -Dr. Kim

“You just can’t keep having a marriage when there is not trust. Because you are going to live separate lives and not going to be connected where you should be connected. There will always be a missing piece there if you are not trusting in a certain area.” -Dr. Kim
