Danny shares, “Kimberly and I just celebrated our 25th anniversary, and while it hasn’t always been easy, we have learned how to communicate and make our relationship stronger. There are some basic principles that we have learned over the years, and we hope to inspire couples to focus on and develop strong bonds that can’t be broken.”

“No, I Can’t Make Your Wife Disappear” is a light-hearted, practical, and sometimes hard-hitting guide to a stronger relationship with your spouse. Broken down into short topics and easy to apply ideas and recommendations, the book shares Danny’s experiences, biblical truths, and wise counsel, as well as Kimberly’s reflections and thoughts.

Each chapter also offers a brief takeaway, leading questions, and a plan of action to begin to apply the concepts presented.

He continues, “Your marriage can be enduring and magical! Kimberly and I are proof!  It takes practice, attention to detail, and a lifetime of learning effective communication, but isn’t your most important human relationship worth it?. Invest in building up and prioritizing your spouse, and watch your relationship thrive into what God intended.”

About Kimberly Ray:  Kimberly is the wife of Danny Ray. Together they started a ministry twenty years ago that has allowed Danny to travel the world sharing the Gospel through his amazing magic. While Danny was on the road most weekends, Kimberly ran the business from home, often answering clients’ phone calls crouched down on the floor of her closet where she found a little bit of temporary quiet from their three young children. Over the years, she has spent many hours co-leading church small groups, marriage groups, and pre-marital groups. She is a certified facilitator for Prepare & Enrich. Today, their two sons are grown and pursuing higher education while their youngest, a daughter, remains at home to finish high school. Kimberly is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Psychology and is working on her Marriage and Family Therapy license. She claims to not have any hobbies or magical talents, but if she is not reading or working these days, she can be found enjoying a cup of coffee and spending time with her family.
