I have to admit I am ASTONISHED at some of the other reviews here!! I found her book to be amazingly insightful, and VERY rooted in scripture. She takes a lot of time to point out scripture references to different point she makes. I'm literally stunned that someone would suggest that this book is simply a matter of opinion. The truth is that MOST women struggle with emotional affairs, which lead to physical affairs. I love the section about women understanding that our desire for sexual relations with men when they are not in the confines of marriage are often power related, and not so much as just about getting an orgasm. (although, there are always exceptions, as she clearly states) Anyhow, I thought she had terrific insight, and I am recommending this book to EVERY woman, married or not, and working on getting a study started at my church.

Upon receiving this book to review, I wasn't quite sure what I had gotten myself into. I had also decided, upon reading the overview, that I wouldn't get much out of it, since I had never struggled with what this book was  about. Or so I thought. The title of the book, "Every Woman's Battle", is true in that the material can apply to  every woman at some point in their lives, whether they are single or married. Ethridge really opens herself up and uses personal stories, as well as stories from other women, to talk about the unhealthy  desires/thoughts/actions that women face every day.  The book breaks these down into four unique categories/components of feminine sexuality as well as talks  about common myths that women and the world believe. It then gives you the necessary tools to help fight  the specific battle you may be fighting.  I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would -- it helped me understand myself more, as well as made me realize that I am not alone, and that we, as women, shouldn't be ashamed to admit things we might be keeping secret. I would recommend this book for any woman who wants to open herself up to the truth about the  woman's sexual battle.

A few nights ago, I was here at BN doing a search for books about how to feel OK (and maybe even completely proud and unashamed) about pleasuring myself sexually. Afterall, the majority of women I see in the world today are OK with doing it, and doctors are now telling me that I should be OK with doing it - because my overall health will be compromised if I don't. So I should be OK with doing it too right? Especially being single and at two years away from 40. The truth is, I'm not and have never been OK with pleasuring myself sexually or engaging in anything related to sex unless I've been with a partner. Before I read this book, I used to think that something was terribly wrong with me or my body because I felt that way, but now I know that that isn't true. It's just fine and maybe even right to feel that way. Knowing that has taken away a lot of guilt and shame and helped me feel a tremendous amount of freedom in the spirit! I can't thank the author enough for writing the words that are contained in this book. Although the references to the bible and Christianity are a little thick and hard to swallow at times, this is a good informative read chock full of advice that every woman should take to heart and come to know very well.

She had some good points but a lot of them were tradition-based rather than scripture based. I felt it was a little too legalistic in nature. Some of her concepts on sexuality are a little outdated because her interpretation of scripture was biased from a tradition. A non believer reading this book might get a wrong idea about scripture because of her interpretation of scripture. It might work for some people but not for all. It did challenge me in some ways to strive for sexual purity. Generally speaking, I dont like these so-called christian self-help books.

The book is more about guarding one's self from men than dealing with real sexual needs in women.The assumption is,the male is the primary aggressor and the female only needs tools to not submitt to the pressure.Also after reading,it gives me the feeling that the writer beleives women are pretty much void of sexual desires and only really there for the man's needs she supposedly in giving into.All I hear in short is men have desire and women need to be desired,nothing of any help for women struggling with any real temptation which is present in all of us,women included.

I have to admit that when I first purchased this book, I was hesitant after reading her husbands book 'Every Man's Battle,' but was very surprised that her chacacter writing did not resemble that of her husbands. She tells things in a much more loving, and in a compassionate manner. So if you are hesitant to buy this book because you first read her husbands book, take it from me, you'll like her style of writing much better! There were many things in the book that were helful to me however, the area that needs refining in this book is that the author acts as though everyone's husbands personality is like hers, and gives her opinions according to what worked well with her husband rather than giving alternatives to different personality types (she goes into it some at the very back of the book, but needs to address it more during the book). She also implies that if a woman feels the need to have an orgasm with her husband, she is to just 'endure' the process and not say anything to him because it's an intimacy buster. She never goes on to state anywhere that in Ephesians 5:28 that the husbands are to love the wives as their own bodies. If that is the case, than any Godly husband would want his wife to orgasm because God said it in Ephesians 5:28! No where does she suggest the power of prayer if her husband doesn't do that, just that the wife should merely 'put up' with it. Overall, the book was very good otherwise. It did have alot of good suggestions that no other book deals with, and I would still recommend this book to many as well as pass it on to my friends.

Finally, there is a brave woman out there that will talk about this subject! It's about time women get real about their sexual struggles and stop looking for love in all the wrong places. I found this book to be insightful, captivating, and full of practical application. It's thrust is towards personal wholeness and fulfillment... with or without a man! Great stuff!!! Have fun reading about her personal journey told with refreshing honesty.

Shannon Ethridge is million copy best selling author who has counseled thousands of women, students and married couples on sexual integrity and intimacy. I had the opportunity to review Every Woman's Battle Discovering Gods Plan for Sexual and Emotional Fulfillment. This book is appropriate for married, engaged or those planning to marry someday. Shannon use a lot of scripture references and asked that wives get more in touch with God and pray about issues regarding their husbands. God knows your husband the best, so why not go to him in prayer about issues that may arise in your marriage. The book doesn’t just give a bunch of answers, but rather Shannon points the reader to look at God for answers. She truly uses this book to inspire a deeper relationship with Christ. I loved the chapter called Taking Every Though Captive. How often do thoughts enter in our mind and we think nothing of them? She challenges the reader in this chapter to be mindful of the entertainment one watches, the type of music, the type of words that come out of our mouth, the type of people we surround ourselves with. She touches on these areas and many others in how our thoughts shape our sexual integrity. Overall, I think this book is an easy read which challenges the reader to pursue a deeper relationship with Christ and to become more aware of one's sexuality and how a female needs to become protective of her mind, body, soul and heart. Thank you Waterbook publishing for providing me with this complimentary review copy.

I really liked the book. It inspired me. Being a young women, I fell into the trap about when reading the first chapter is that I had preconceived ideas, after I dropped those I ideas and went on with the ride, it truly helped me. She touches every aspect and doesn't leave anyone hanging. I like how she tells people to get more in touch with God and pray about the issues. It's nice to have ideas of what works, but God knows your husband best, this book inspired me to look to God for the answers of dealing with my husband and not to find books. It also allowed me to see things about myself that needed to change, even sexual and emotional desires. I think she touched the issues very well, by stating that we must get connected with God's commands. Basically, I got the impression that she is not a know it all, but a route to inspire you have a relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I look back and my dependence was on books more, than the Bible! I wish the book was longer, but I enjoyed that it was straight and to the point. The fact that she knows everyone's husband is different, I'm glad she didn't spend to much time on 'what to do when your husband is this or that' because it built my faith in God to pray. I love how she helped the single women also, VERY GOOD! And most importantly, allowing us to know it's our right to take a break and ways to do so that worked for her. She went the best route, allowing God to speak to her without holding ANY BARS and mentioning what worked. I thought she was going to go into what she did to help girls in her counsel sessions, but I'm glad she didn't. And I'm most happy that she didn't tell us WHAT TO DO with our husbands. B/c secretly, most women WANT OUT before they WANT GOD! I'm definetly going to use her workbook to set things up with my church and hopefully my pastor will approve!
