Author Biography

Kim Sorrelle is the director of a humanitarian organization, a popular speaker, and the author of two books. Her first book, Cry Until You Laugh, is about her breast cancer journey and her husband's battle with pancreatic cancer after being diagnosed just four months apart. Her second book, Love Is, chronicles her year-long quest to figure out the true meaning of love, a sometimes funny, sometimes scary, always enlightening journey that led to life-changing discoveries found mainly on the streets of Haiti.

Reviewed by Vincent Dublado for Readers' Favorite

Love Is: A Year-Long Experiment of Living Out 1 Corinthians Love by Kim Sorrelle is an exploration of living a life of love pursuant to one of the most profound thoughts written on the subject in Corinthians. The book is divided into fourteen chapters that are titled according to how 1 Corinthians defines love. Beginning with Love is Patient, the author expounds on the idea of what patient love is and how it influences the moments when it is present. It then ends with a chapter on Love Always Perseveres that gives reasons why true love never gives up. All the examples given are based on hands-on experiences and observations by the author, and she ends every chapter with a short prayer—devotional acts with deep, personal meaning that you can use to uplift your heart and mind.

Kim Sorelle walks her talk as she crosses cultures from the United States to Haiti to affirm her epiphany on what makes God an ideal definition of love. Sorelle is not a love expert, but like everyone else, she knows a thing or two about love from its universality and timelessness. She also has a healthy understanding that it can hurt. I like how she puts a semantic play on the words to come up with profound ideas. When she writes that you can be lovesick, loveless, and lovely, she gives you a digestible concept of love, an idea that for most scholars and intellectuals has a great deal of structure. So what is love really? If you prefer an experience-based explanation of the subject with spiritual leanings, reading Love Is could help.

This book changed my life. I thought I knew what love is but, man, I have things to change. My marriage was a little rocky, nothing too bad but definitely needed improving. I read Love Is and it changed my thinking about how I should love my husband, the right way. Now I am back to having butterflies in my stomach every time I see him. Thanks, Kim Sorrelle!
