Kim Pullen

Writer, Teacher, Speaker, Coach

The eldest child of two Marines, Kim grew up in Miami and became a Christian in the campus ministry at Broward Community College in 1981. She received her Bachelor’s in Telecommunications with a minor in Theater at the University of Florida in 1985.

She wrote and directed, Table for Two, an ensemble stage play about adultery, sexual addiction, abuse, recovery, and grace for the 2013 Florida Discipleship Conference. She is a freelance writer, novelist, speaker, blogger, poet, and actress. Her books, The Intimacy Manifesto, The Chasm Crosser, and Water for the Wound, are available from Amazon and other digital formats and she writes regularly on her blogs—Pullen Out the Stops and Hope for Spouses. She is also the creator and producer of Isolation to Intimacy, an online video course for spouses in the wake of their partner’s sexual sin.

Besides writing full-time, Kim is a AFAA-certified yoga and Pilates instructor, a chemical awareness advocate with Every Body Wellness, and a former high school English teacher and homeschooling mom. She lives in Orlando, Florida, with her massage therapist and fitness guru husband, Russ Pullen, their three teenage children, four backyard chickens, and a bunny named Hazel.

Thriving in a 26-year marriage that was once traumatized by adultery and a four-year separation, Kim shares hope and healing with spouses who feel isolated due to sexual sin in their relationship, but don’t know how or where to begin their journey.

What do people say about Kim Pullen and Hope for Spouses?

When I first found Hope for Spouses, my husband had just abandoned me to pursue another affair, and I didn’t know where to turn. I was devastated! I couldn’t eat, sleep, or think about anything except how this had happened to me…again.

Then I started Kim’s Isolation to Intimacy program and for the first time, started to see myself clearly. Loaded with scriptures, the program helped me see how I needed to change, how much God loves me, and how I no longer need to fear the future.
