Publisher's Summary

Finally! A book about physical intimacy and marital oneness that is comprehensive, in-depth and frank, yet respectfully reverent - written to address the unique perspective of women while shining a light into the mysteries of the female heart and mind. This is the ultimate how-to handbook, power-packed with hope and help for creating a mutually fulfilling intimate relationship. It is three titles in one, a "marriage book", "sex book", and "parenting book":

  • Shines light and truth on the intimate marital relationship, restoring sex to its proper position as ordained of God
  • Effectively addresses with self-help solutions, the emotional, spiritual, and physical intimacy issues that plague so many marriages
  • Provides principles and practices to help parents teach and better prepare their children for intimacy and lasting fulfillment in marriage.

      "Excellent"

      Although it was written with members of the Ladder Day Saints in mind, the biblical references and discussions are still applicable to a Christian of any denomination. Being a Christian of another denomination, I found that there's always room for improvement in the marriage relationship, and the author's explanations, recommendations, and references are well communicated and organized. With an open mind and open heart, anyone can use this book to conduct a self-evaluation of where they are in their sexual intimacy with their spouse and how to make it even better as God intended.

      "Bummer of a book"

      I was very dissapointed in this book because it was written specifically for Mormons. No where in the description does it say this. Some of the advice itself is applicable regardless of what you believe, but much of the book I listened to so far is directed towards people who have grown up in a conservative environment and feel guilt or shame about sex that must be overcome. I just really have not gotten much at all out of the book. It's a good book, for sexually repressed Mormons.

      "unecessary, obvious, and regurgutated"

      I still havent finished the book and I doubt I will. I am through the 5th disc and I just cant get through the rest. It seems like each chapter is merely a chapter from another authors book that she regurgitates. The few ideas she claims to be her own are not and her perceptions are obvious. What is even more disturbing is that she over generalizes men and women and somehow gets the idea across that a woman's duty is to sexually please her husband and this book is designed to help her fulfill her obligation. she seems to think sexually performing for the husband is a Godly commandment, which it is not. As a husband and psychotherapist I am so not liking this book. No woman should ever feel obligated to have sex and should not feel guilty is she only wants to have sex 1 time a week or 1 time a year. The woman and man may both need therapy and this book I fear will only perpetuate problems of this nature. Of course there are some that will resonate with it, so for her this is good.
