Christian Week
Writing in a conversational, first person style, Gregoire offers understanding, sensitivity and practical insight into one of the most intimate parts of marriage—Whether engaged, newly married or married for many years, this book is a great tool, packed with useful suggestions.

Author's Choice Reviews
"This book offers a practical Christian approach to tackling the sexual frustrations often felt by couples, particularly young parents of growing families. Gregoire has sensitively tackled a complex subject matter with honesty and humor and touches on many things men and women often don't know how to identify or are hesitant to bring up. Each chapter closes with a brief overview for the men, which I personally found helpful in better understanding what had just been written for the women."

"Honey, I Don't Have a Headache Tonight is a delightful new book by Sheila Wray Gregiore. The age-old problem of unmatched sexual drives between married partners is addressed in frank terms. The author states that both partners should be able to thoroughly relish the sexual relationship. Gregiore hopes to preserve Christian families by helping women resolve conflicts in the bedroom. . . . I especially liked the chapter on respect that showed the difference between carrying each other's burdens and crrying another's loads. 'When we routinely do things for other people that they should do for themselves, we allow them to treat us in an un-Christlike manner,' states Gregiore. She bases her teaching on scriptures, weaving them into every chapter. I would recommend this book to wives who are discontent with their sexual relations, those who want to overcome obstacles that keep them from enjoying sex fully in their marriage. I would suggest it to women who have hit snags in their marriages, from which they want to disentangle themselves."

This book is incredibly practical and funny. I was on the floor over Spotty and the gecko and his (lack of a) love life. The author covers an incredible number of issues that can cause a stalemate in the bedroom. Her knowledge of biology is sound and her solutions are 'real.' A must read for women who want to improve their perspective about married sexuality. This would also be a good book for wives to read and discuss with their husbands. I think the author's ability to talk honestly about how women feel would benefit them, plus there is a page 'For Him' at the end of each chapter which summarizes the chapter and offers a few suggestions for husbands."

Meet the Author

From a babysitting collective to an herbal bath business, Sheila Wray Gregoire would rather create her own job than have someone hire her--a born entrepreneur. But being raised by a single mom, even one who did a wonderful job, left a hole where her father should have been and fueled her passion to preserve marriages. She and her husband, Keith, "tag-team" homeschool their kids. She also writes for national magazines and speaks across the country, combining the realities of a family with Scripture for real-world, real-biblical answers.

    maybe if I didn't have a brain or any real life experiences...

    Maybe if I didn't have a brain or any real life experiences, I would have found this book valuable. I purchased it because of the subtitle: for women who want to be in the mood more often. The book did nothing to help my "mood."

    To be honest, I gave up halfway through the book because of it's stereotypic portrayal of gender roles--women staying home to cook, clean, and watch the kids, men going off to work. While some of these roles hold true in my own marriage, they are done so by choice rather than tradition. To read a book that presents them as indisputable tradition was insulting.

    Other reasons not to read the book: 1. It quotes scripture (which is cool) and then interprets it into the context of love, marriage, and sex. Thanks, but no thanks. If that was what I wanted, I would talk to my pastor or read the Bible and interpret it for myself. 2. At the end of every chapter there is a "for him" section which is a dumbed down summary of "my" section for my husband to read. I don't know about the rest of the women out there, but I give my husband a little more credit than that--if it's important to our relationship, he can and will read the book in its entirety. (The "for him" section is also infuriating because it perpetuates the idea that if things aren't going well in the bedroom, it's mostly up to the wife to figure out how to fix it. Problems in the home are her problems.) 3. There is one chapter devoted entirely to body image and beauty. In theory, this is a good idea seeing as lots of women, myself included, have "body issues." I was surprised and disappointed to find that the author's discussion of beauty dealt only with weight. Nothing about pregnancy, stretch marks, cellulite, acne, chapped lips or anything else. Apparently weight is the only thing that matters anymore when discussing women's beauty.

    In short, I wouldn't recommend the book due to it's sheer lack of depth and general lack of understanding of women and who we might be in our marriages.
