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

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!

I always chided myself for having trouble in my sexual relationship in marriage. Why did I have so many hang-ups? Why did I hate my body? I was not sexually abused as a child. I didn't understand the source of my angst and frustration. To exacerbate the problem, I had no foundation for how to initiate sex, and I was so gun-shy that any criticism or direction given my my husband absolutely killed my desire and plunged me into a flood of self-pity. Enter this book. I picked it up on a whim about six months ago and read it cover to cover over the course of a day. The first chapter contains a quiz to evaluate a woman's sexual feelings about herself. As I took the quiz, I realized that I actually was *not* OK, and things between me and my husband were not even close to what they should be. The quiz exposed the mess that was within my own heart.

This book started me on a journey that has breathed new life into my marriage. I smile now when I think of our sex life, instead of constantly feeling that there is a black cloud of expectations over my head. I no longer buy the lie that I am powerless and that change is impossible. Because both my husband and I can routinely get satisfaction in each other's company, we feel a lot more stable than we did in the first 11 years of our marriage. Another (non-sexual) benefit of this transformation was that I lost my fear of asking for what I need in the marriage. I spent too long believing the fallacy that love means knowing exactly what the other person needs. Well, having ESP must be nice, but most if us have to rely upon actual communication to get tour needs met. And there is nothing wrong with having needs and even just wishes that you can share with your spouse.

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.

It was recommended to me to read from someone who loved the book. I have read many self help books and this is not even among the top ten I have read. If you don't read self improvement books on a regular you may enjoy this book if you read many books to help you grow as a person, lover or to be more self aware then this book is not for you. you will not learn anything you didn't know IMHO.

God has used this book to change the sexual intimacy in our marriage forever! So often as Christian women this subject is not in the light. Bravo to Shannon for speaking truth and bringing beauty to how God has intentionally created us sexual beings to explore and enjoy within the covenant relationship of marriage! I highly recommend this book to wives no matter where you are at in your marriage journey.
