Passionate Housewives Desperate for God
is an exceptionally well written book. Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald do not pretend to be the perfect wives, mothers, and homemakers, but they do have a heart for God and His glory. Both of them see the role of the wife and mother as God's high and holy calling, and they exhort us through Scripture and practical examples to, by God's grace, fulfill that calling. This book will make you think, will convict you, and will, as the subtitle states, give you a 'fresh vision for the hopeful homemaker.' I highly recommend this book. --Martha Peace, author of The Excellent Wife
Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald have spoken the Truth with a capital 'T' in their wonderful book Passionate Housewives Desperate for God
. Totally grounded in Scripture, this book winsomely presents the true picture of a godly homemaker. Prepare to be stimulated, challenged, and encouraged as a woman. This book is a real gem! --Vickie Farris, wife of HSLDA founder, Michael Farris, Esq.
As a mother of eight, I am encouraged to see this book published to help women who desire to walk as passionate servants, who want to 'do the right thing,' and who love the natural yearnings which God created in them. We all have a longing to create, cultivate, and faithfully nurture the gifts God has given us. When the gifts come in the form of family, we would do well to listen to the Biblical wisdom of Stacy and Jennie to counteract the Western culture s strident cry for self-assertion. I gladly recommend this book for all women who want to honor Him and help others (even a two year old!) to glorify Him by dying to self with joy and thanksgiving. He is worthy of our efforts, and these two authors cheer us on to Biblical femininity. --Valerie Shepard, daughter of Elisabeth Elliot
