With the divorce rates within the church matching, or even in some places exceeding, those in the secular world, it is painfully clear that the way we have been doing marriage is simply not working. In response, many ministries are doling out truckloads of materials on topics like commitment, communication, love, and respect, and God-fearing wives are snapping them up. But what if the key to a fulfilling, life-giving marriage is waiting in the last place the church is looking? In her new book, THE SEXUALLY CONFIDENT WIFE: Connecting with Your Husband in Mind Body Heart Spirit, author Shannon Ethridge suggests that the wife who wants her marriage to last forever should learn to love her body, share it freely with her husband, and really enjoy SEX.
As the author of several bestselling books including EVERT WOMAN’S BATTLE and EVERY WOMAN’S MARRIAGE, Ethridge has already guided hundreds of thousands of grateful readers through the hidden sexual issues that women --- especially Christian women --- have been afraid to talk about. After twenty years of dealing with these women, she began asking God, “Why are some Christians so uptight about this gift that YOU have given us for our pleasure?” As she continued to seek God’s direction, she became convinced that women and marriages are suffering because of these sexual inhibitions, and not just women in the church. She wrote THE SEXUALLY CONFIDENT WIFE to help every woman get back on the right track toward genuine intimacy --- to connect with her husband physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, creating a powerful bond that fuels her deepest passions and satisfies her very soul.
From insecurities related to body image, the lingering effects of sexual abuse, and nagging guilt over pre-marital sexual activity to fear of intimacy and the all-too-common attitude that “sex is just for him, not for me,” Ethridge’s book deals unflinchingly with the most common hang-ups that hold women back in their sexual relationships with their husbands. “Women from all walks of life have been given such negative messages about their sexuality, and I want them to break that cycle. I feel God has called me to teach them how to be sexually confident wives, for that is truly His plan and desire for them.”
Women deserve to enjoy a passionate sexual relationship with their husbands without inhibition, awkwardness, guilt, or shame. THE SEXUALLY CONFIDENT WIFE will show them how to experience just that! How? By doing the following:
