Editorial Reviews

Review

"Writing in a conversational, first person style, Gregoire offers understanding, sensitivity and practical insight into one of the most intimate parts of marriageÖWhether engaged, newly married or married for many years, this book is a great tool, packed with useful suggestions." (Kelly Rempel Christian Week 2004-09-17)

"This book offers a practical Christian approach to tackling the sexual frustrations often felt by couples, particularly young parents of growing families. Gregoire has sensitively tackled a complex subject matter with honesty and humor and touches on many things men and women often don't know how to identify or are hesitant to bring up. Each chapter closes with a brief overview for the men, which I personally found helpful in better understanding what had just been written for the women." (Carolyn R. Sheidies Author's Choice Reviews 2005-02-04)

"Honey, I Don't Have a Headache Tonight is a delightful new book by Sheila Wray Gregiore. The age-old problem of unmatched sexual drives between married partners is addressed in frank terms. The author states that both partners should be able to thoroughly relish the sexual relationship. Gregiore hopes to preserve Christian families by helping women resolve conflicts in the bedroom. . . . I especially liked the chapter on respect that showed the difference between carrying each other's burdens and crrying another's loads. 'When we routinely do things for other people that they should do for themselves, we allow them to treat us in an un-Christlike manner,' states Gregiore. She bases her teaching on scriptures, weaving them into every chapter. I would recommend this book to wives who are discontent with their sexual relations, those who want to overcome obstacles that keep them from enjoying sex fully in their marriage. I would suggest it to women who have hit snags in their marriages, from which they want to disentangle themselves." (Elece Hollis ChristianBookPreviews.com 2004-12-01)

This book is incredibly practical and funny. I was on the floor over Spotty and the gecko and his (lack of a) love life. The author covers an incredible number of issues that can cause a stalemate in the bedroom. Her knowledge of biology is sound and her solutions are 'real.' A must read for women who want to improve their perspective about married sexuality. This would also be a good book for wives to read and discuss with their husbands. I think the author's ability to talk honestly about how women feel would benefit them, plus there is a page 'For Him' at the end of each chapter which summarizes the chapter and offers a few suggestions for husbands." (Dennis Hillman Kregel Publications 2005-05-01)

A good resource with some funny stories and a personal style. (Michelle Connell Book, Line, and Sinker 2005-12-01) --1

From the Back Cover

It’s 10:00 p.m. He wants to start snuggling. You want to start snoring.

He feels unloved because you aren’t “in the mood,” and you feel unloved because he only cares about one thing.

Honey, I Don’t Have a Headache helps you overcome this frustrating stalemate by looking at the obstacles to every woman’s sex drive—hectic schedules, romanceless husbands, negative body image, and more. This practical—and often humorous—book gives advice on how to turn up the heat in your marriage when a solitary bubble bath seems much more enticing than your hubby waiting in the bedroom.

“Sheila addresses a delicate issue with clarity, grace, and humor.”

—Dr. Scott Turansky
Cofounder, the National Center for Biblical Parenting

“Sheila Wray Gregoire is hopeful, helpful, honest, and hilarious. . . . [this] is one of the most powerful and practical books on the market today.”

—Ginger Plowman
Author, Don’t Make Me Count to Three!

“Sheila’s wit allows her to tackle a sensitive subject in a way that invites couples to explore their own obstacles to a rich and rewarding sex life and points them toward marriage as God intended it to be.”

—Denise MacDonald
Therapist, Family Works Counseling

Sheila Wray Gregoire’s passion in life is preserving families. She travels around North America encouraging women to look to God when dust bunnies and relational tensions take on a life of their own.

Sheila is the author of To Love, Honor, and Vacuum, writes for magazines and newspapers across the country, and has appeared on several nationally syndicated programs, including 100 Huntley Street and Moody’s Midday Connection.

Format: Paperback
Shelia Wray Gregoire has an incredible way of telling it like it is in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, as did my husband, and will recommend it to ALL of my married friends. She hit every single nail on the head with all of my issues concerning sex and intimacy in a Christian marriage, helping me to feel that I am not alone or abnormal. Sex for women is a head thing and Sheila teaches you how to retrain your thoughts and emotions to better allow you to not only enjoy that intimacy with your husband, but to also WANT it!!! (something I had just about given up on) Another thing that was great was the way she shows you the men's perspective on sex. It helps a lot just knowing where he is coming from. Plus she gives a special section at the end of each chapter just for the men to read that hits the main points of what you just read (in case he doesn't want to read the whole book). This is a book I don't recommend lending to friends, only because you will want to hold on to it forever and make notes in it and highlite areas and reread it many, many times! This is the first book of hers I have read, but I plan to find To Love, Honor, and Vacuum because of how much I enjoyed reading this one.

Format: Paperback
Women, if you want to REALLY understand your man's needs and expectations, this book is for you. This well-written tome is intended for women, but as a man, let me tell you, Shiela understands the opposite sex! My wife and I read it together and learned a lot. Shiela ends each chapter with advice for men...I appreciate that.

Shiela's writing is crisp; her observations fascinating; her conclusions dead-on. She offers hope to women with imperfect bodies and unpredictable sex drives. The book is tastefully modest but is still direct and to-the-point.

I predict that this book will help thousands of couples experience all the joy God intended for them in the bedroom. I highly recommend this book!

This book is so great. The author puts into words what I've never been able to find words to describe. If you want to be more intimate with your husband but you just don't feel like it or you don't feel close to him or whatever the reason may be... If you want to WANT your husband more- you MUST read this book!

I loved this book! It has so many different ideas about how to help you feel more interested in making love. I like that the ideas about not things like porn or other awful things that in the end bring you down. After reading this book I feel like I am closer to my husband but also I feel like I understand more the way I was feeling about making love and how to keep it positive and fun! Thank you Shelia Wray Gregoire! This book really helped me out and my husband is benefiting from it too :)

If you are at a place in your marriage where you are craving something more or anything at all, this is a very good read. Shelia speaks primarily to women but has sections that are just for him. She is honest and the research is done well. Sometimes we need a reminder of why we fell in love with our husbands and this book will point you back to that love.
