Learn what real intimacy is about and how to achieve it in your relationships.

Author shares eleven keys to enhance intimacy in our relationships, thus improving the quality of our relationships.  Through thought provoking questions, biblical examples and personal testimonies from family members, this book is sure to help everyone achieve a healthy, long-lasting relationship.  Whether you're single, married, divorced, widowed, or whatever term you use to describe your current relationship status, this book is not gender specific as the topics in this book will surely bring about discussion from men and women.

If your idea of foreplay includes candlelight dinner, rose petals and whip cream, you are misguided. We have been focusing only on the physical while we are neglecting the emotional and spiritual needs of our mate. This neglect has lead to dissolving relationships, conflicts in the marriage, and internal struggles. In Before the Lights Go Out, I outlined eleven keys to enhance foreplay, which will develop the intimacy in your relationship, thus allowing you to form a tighter bond with your mate. Leave the lights on a bit longer and begin the emotional and spiritual journey towards a better you.

A Blessing in Disguise, September 23, 2011
The Lord blesses individuals in different ways. He sent Quiniece Sheppard to bless readers with a book of solutions called Before the Lights Go Out: 11 Keys to Achieve Real Physical Intimacy. This book is a combination of 11 ways to achieve intimacy in your relationship. Before the Lights Go Out brings out faults in a relationship and the solutions to make the relationship better. This carefully structured book provides instructions, prayers, and case studies that will help any couple. Readers will definitely recognize the issues they are currently having in their relationships and how they can change it.

My favorite chapter in the book is "First Key to Achieve Physical Intimacy Is Prayer," I believe this is an important part of any relationship. Prayer for one another helps develop a bond and brings strength in the relationship or marriage. Another chapter I really appreciated was, "Fourth Key To Achieve Physical Intimacy Is Performance," I say this because it is not referring to a sexual performance but a romantic performance. This chapter explains a different way to perform in your relationship or marriage by sending flowers, romantic gestures in a text or email, or even making a point to set a date night. I believe this is also important because it reassures the love and intimacy is still alive and present.

I can write on and on about how wonderful this book is and how helpful it will be to all that read it but I would spoil some of its qualities. What I will say is readers will appreciate so many aspects of this book from the end of the chapter thought-provoking questions to the marriage couples only section. This is a necessary read for any couple. I definitely recommend this book to others.

The Lights Are Finally On!, September 18, 2011
In Quiniece Sheppard's "Before the Lights Go Out: 11 Keys to Achieve Real Physical Intimacy" she gives Christian advice about love and relationships to other women. Not only is she giving out Christian advice but she is backing up her advice with scriptures from the bible.

"Before the Lights Go Out" is very well written for its intended audience. Sheppard presented eleven keys to real physical intimacy and explains in details each and every key. She also poses questions at the end of each chapter that makes you question your own relationship, or makes you think of the type of man and relationship that you are suppose to have. The book goes deep and explains men and women's role, how to have a real spiritual relationship, how to apply God's word to your marriage and how to apply intimacy in all aspects of your relationship.

I would recommend "Before the Lights Go Out" to anyone that is looking for their ideal mate.

Reader Reviews for "Before the Lights Go Out:11 keys to Achieve Real Physical Intimacy"

Reviewed by Angela Day 11/29/2012
I can't say enough about the content of "Before the Lights Go Out"! At first glance I assumed that the contents would be the non-fiction that usually end up forcing myself to read from time to time. you know the kind that's read more out of obligation that for pleasure. Boy was I wrong!!!! Instead, I spent mornings, days, lunch breaks & after dinner time with my fiance' delving into every word of the content. The fact that the information is written with fluidity and with a tone that isn't the least bit preachy added its overall appeal. I was and am PLEASANTLY surprised. I'm an avid reader and when I say that I experienced a plethora of firsts with this book, this is what I mean...1) I was enthralled with the expectation of more from simple reading the preface. 2) Even though I received the book and began reading it in September, I took my time to absorb (body, soul & spirit) every dotted "I" and every crossed "t". 3) Once delving into chapter one, the content seemed to resonate with every fiber of my being as though me, Quiniece, the Holy Spirit & God were all destined to the meeting at this very time. 4) There were hilarious truths emphasized, like the three tests every woman should give her potential "man":
~credit check, blood test check & background check. Aren't these some of the very things us ladies joke about with our girlfriends, sisters and aunts? Yes they are! 5) I actually called up family & friends to encourage them to get this book. Even changed my face book profile picture to the book cover (now, ladies you know that doesn't happen every day! LOL) . Throughout the book, it seemed like Quiniece and I were old friends catching up on all that had taken place in our lives after we left high school. The difference, she and her family members were transparent when it came to intimacy, love, lust, trials and faith. This is the novel I sooooo needed before I got married some 18 years ago. Now that I've read, absorbed, discussed and reflected on the concepts and principles herein, I am the better. I encourage women and men of all ages, regardless of your status: married, divorced, engaged, single, dating, desiring a help meet or considering dating to read Before the Lights Go Out,...before you engage in any of those things. It truly gets to the crux of the matter. It'll make you want to read every book Miss Sheppard has written! Is there such a thing as a 6-star rating? This is what "Before the Lights Go Out" warrants. Miss Sheppard is truly walking in her Godly calling! Headed to purchase her other books.
