As a nineteen-year old bride, Kim’s sex education before marriage was short and easy to remember… “Don’t.” Her sex education after marriage was… “Don’t deprive.” The huge void between the two made the early part of her marriage a traumatic nightmare. She was plagued with unhealthy beliefs which had the potential to destroy her marriage. While searching for answers, she found a little paperback on the Song of Solomon. The book helped somewhat but left many vital questions unanswered. Nevertheless, the little book set in motion her lifelong journey with the Song.
Over the next thirty-eight years of her marriage, Kim read and researched countless books, articles and theories on the Song. In all those years she never found anyone who was able to uncover a storyline or timeline within it. Her efforts seemed futile, because after all that time and research all she had accomplished was a collection of conflicting theories and opinions, none of which made much sense.
Then, through a divine hunch, she began digging into long-lost, Old Testament wedding customs. The more she dug, the more the pieces began to fit together, the more the pieces fit together, the more the Song sprang to life in a common-sense and astonishing chronological storyline!
Kim also discovered that the entire Song of Solomon is told by a woman to women. Solomon’s bride, Shulammite, shares her messy, real-life story with the Daughters of Jerusalem. Shulammite is our first example of an older woman teaching younger women about purity and how to love their husbands sexually. (Titus 2:3-5)
Kim’s passion and desire is to revive and teach Shulammite’s message to women all over the world.
Kim and her husband Doug live in Florida and they have two grown boys.
