Wilkerson-- who recently released his first book, Sandcastle Kings: Meeting Jesus in a Spiritually Bankrupt World -- doesn't deny that being married has its challenges. "I've been married for nine years and I love my wife [DawnChere Wilkerson] -- and it takes a lot of work for a good marriage," he said. "Everyone has got to face those challenges and walk through it and keep going."
The Miami-based minister added, "Marriage takes work. ...It's easy to fall in love and it takes a whole lot of work to stay in love."
The Kardashian family saw just how hard relationships can be when Kourtney Kardashian broke up with Scott Disick, her longtime boyfriend and father of her three children, over the summer. Wilkerson is also close with the oldest Kardashian sister and told ET that he's optimistic about what the future holds for the former couple.
"They're both amazing friends of mine and special, special people," he said. "They're doing good, you know? They're gonna do good."
