Maximize the sexual and emotional potential in your marriage! With down-to-earth wisdom based on the experiences of the thousands of women she’s counseled, Shannon Ethridge–author of the million-plus-selling Every Woman’s Battle series–shows women how to create the healthy, exhilarating sex lives they (and their husbands) desire.
Every woman deserves to enjoy great sex with her husband, without inhibition or shame. But many wives live with the burden of self-doubt or feel mystified about what men really want in bed. Others wrestle with memories of sexual abuse or neglect, guilt over past intimate relationships, or negative feelings about their own bodies. Maybe you’ve been thinking you were alone in your struggle to discover sexual fulfillment. Think again:
only 8 percent of married women consider their sex life “very hot”
21 percent call their sex life “routine and boring”
Another 21 percent ask, “What sex life?”
These sorry statistics don’t have to be your case, as Shannon Ethridge readily explains with arresting warmth and honesty. Brimming with confidence-boosting techniques and inspiring personal stories of rejuvenated relationships, The Sexually Confident Wife opens a new world of passion for every couple, helping women to connect with their men on every level–physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual–enabling them to fully enjoy the ultimate, enduring union that marriage can be.
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.
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
