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

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. I now tell him what I need, calmly, trusting that he will have my best interests at heart and want to help. In the past, these wishes would only be expressed after weeks or even months of bottling up my anger, until I was ready to throw something at his head. I'm sure he appreciates this change!
I purchased this book over a year ago and continue to purchase the used copies when I can to share with other women.
I personally emailed the author and thanked her for this book wishing we had had this info/talk back in the 80's and before.
Shannon Etheridge studied at Liberty University. God is using her difficult life experience together with her university studies to help women overcome their difficult sexual past ( whether it was done to them or sexual choices made outside or before marriage) in order to first know better who their Father in Heaven is and how much He loves his daughters and second to fully be all and everything they can in their marriages and other relationships. She has written other books on this topic. The info in this book seemed to get me over that hump to be able to see my past without shame and condemnation and to be able to begin steps to move forward in my walk with Christ. To not be stuck because of mistakes made in the past.
