What women are saying about The Sexually Confident Wife…
(excerpted from www.sexuallyconfidentwife.com)
 
 “Wow! What a great book for those of us who grew up in fairly sheltered homes. Unfortunately, since I was fed the thought that "sex is bad" during my teen years, I carried that into my marriage… I look forward to breaking my inhibitions, then sharing this book with other women so we can begin to understand our sexuality from a healthy point of view.” —Kathryn
 
“I am very thankful for a seasoned woman like Shannon who’s not afraid to step up and be such a practical mentor. We need more than just a Cosmo magazine to become sexually confident wives!” —Lisa

“Oh, my gosh! I NEED this book!!!” —Sandra

“I’ve read many of Shannon Ethridge’s books, and her keen insight into married women and the struggles we all face is incredibly informative and creative. It’s so great to know that I’m not alone.” —Cheryl

About the Author

SHANNON ETHRIDGE is an inspirational speaker, lay counselor, and bestselling author. Her previous books include Every Woman’s Battle and Every Young Woman’s Battle. She lives in East Texas with her husband and their two children.


More About the Author

Shannon is a million-copy best-selling author, speaker, lay counselor, and advocate for healthy sexuality with a master's degree in counseling/human relations from Liberty University. She has spoken to youth, college students, and adults since 1989 and her passions include: Challenging adults and teens to embrace a life of sexual integrity, encouraging married couples in their pursuit of sexual and emotional fulfillment, counseling women who have looked for love in all the wrong places and equipping parents to instill sexual values in children at an early age.

Her passion for healthy sexuality actually began in mortuary college. Her first career choice, becoming a mortician, led Ethridge to work on dead bodies. Many she embalmed were young people who had died from AIDS or committed suicide as a result an HIV positive diagnosis. Because of her own promiscuous teenage years, she knew it was a miracle that she was standing over the embalming table rather than laying on top of it. These experiences inspired her to begin speaking boldly and bluntly to teen, college-age, and adult audiences about the benefits of sexual integrity. She has taught and counseled thousands of young singles and married couples over the past decade. She is the author of 18 books, including the best-selling Every Woman's Battle series, the 5-book Completely His series, and her new book for the mainstream market, The Sexually Confident Wife.

Shannon has been featured on the cover of Today's Christian Woman Magazinee, and is a frequent guest on international radio & television shows such as The 700 Club, Life Today with James & Betty Robison, FamilyLife Today with Dennis Rainey, and New Life Live! with Stephen Arterburn. She has also been published in numerous magazines such as Focus on the Family, Brio, and LifeWay and is the winner of a Gold Medallion Award for Excellence in Publishing.

Although grateful for the opportunities to influence this generation as a writer and speaker, Shannon remains most passionate about her role as a wife and best friend to her husband of 18 years, Greg, and a mother and cheerleader to their two children, Erin (17) and Matthew (14).

Format: Hardcover
I read this in less than 3 days, and have been able to apply a lot of what I learned from it to my own life since then. I can truly say I feel significantly more confident to approach my marriage bed with joy, greater freedom, and a stronger love for my husband and deeper gratefulness for the fantastic gift from God of sexual intimacy within marriage.

A little background on me, the reviewer: Due to my life experiences, I've had a lot of spiritual, mental and emotional wounds that have needed healing, especially regarding sex and my self-worth. I have read a LOT of books to that end. (For those needing similar healing in this area, I can highly recommend: Joyce Meyer's "Beauty For Ashes" and "Battlefield of the Mind", Shaunti Feldhahn's "For Women Only", Francine Rivers' "Redeeming Love", and for men especially: Michael Reagan's "Twice Adopted", amoung others) This book is the latest in my effort to better understand myself, my relationship with my husband, and to overcome any lingering issues from my past, so that I can be as fully loving a wife as possible, as well as to allow myself to be loved by my husband as fully as possible.

I heard about this book and after reading a few reviews, decided to buy it. After ordering it online (and getting one extra for a girlfriend), I found some more reviews, and to my embarrassment, read that there are sketches in it. I hadn't known that when I ordered it. I worried, "I feel so embarrassed! What if they are really graphic?" But I decided that I wasn't going to judge it sight unseen.

It arrived while I was getting my kids' lunch ready. I brought it in the kitchen, opened the box, and began flipping through it while I waited for the microwave to finish cooking their food.

I didn't want another book to tell me to "get over it and just do it". This book gave me confidence, not only sexually but as a woman/wife/Christian as well. The information was provided tactfully, I did not feel offended with any of it, including the graphic pictures. I appreciated the candidness of the author. A previous poster went through the details of each chapter and did an excellent job at describing them, so I won't go through it again but encourage reading that post as it was the reason I read this book!

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent and very informative book. When you have been married for 20 or more years you tend to get stuck in this comfortable rut of daily life. This book has helped me to realize that I as a wife need to spend more time with my husband and soulmate, best friend and learn how to enjoy each others company and understand his feelings. I have to say that it has sparked some long lost excitement in the bedroom as well, which I thought would never happen. I would recomend this book highly. I am not a big book reader either but now I will have to read all of her books.

This book covers all areas of a wife's sexuality and pulls no punches. Frank and explicit yet does not cross the line of offence or makes the average woman uncomfortable with suggestions or ideas. I have upcoming weddings and have purchased it for the brides as a wedding gift. However I am a 47 year old with two grown children and have been divorced and still find her thoughts and ideas informative, intriguing and useful.

16 of 23 people found the following review helpful By HudsonGal on January 12, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Mrs. Ethridge deals bluntly with a very important topic for Christian women: how to be sexually confident in your role as a wife. Mrs. Ethridge deals succinctly with many important nuances of this subject. She does not mince words, and there is no shame as she discusses these very intimate matters. I applaud her for this!

My one critique of the book is that I feel Mrs. Ethridge could have established a stronger biblical foundation for her assertions. Clearly, she is writing for married religious women (with a distinct Christian flavor). However, I feel that Scriptural references would have been appropriate and enhanced what she had to say. In addition, I found some of her assertions to be unbiblical. For example, she advises women to dress sexily but makes no mention of the importance of modesty. This would have been a worthy topic to add to the discussion of sexuality she engages in. She also makes assertions that are opposed to the religious views of some denominations, particularly Catholicism.

Overall, I think this is an important book, and I already have a few people in mind that I will be recommending it to. But, I recommend that Christian readers approach this book with Bible in hand.

* Be cautioned, the book does contain some rather graphic illustrations (though no photos) and very blunt sexual language. If you are offended by such things, you should not read this book.
