Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Hot mama is a book written from a Christian perspective for women (not just moms in my opinion) about how to spice up their life with their husbands. They give practical advice, challenges at the end of each chapter and advice from other women that helped them with the book. In addition they share examples of personal real life experiences. I found the book very interesting and easy to read. I would recommend this book to married women whether they are a mom or not. The ladies offer good sound advice with a Christian perspective. You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.
Kathi Lipp and Erin MacPherson have collaborated to write a book filled with ideas to help keep the spark in your marriage or to relight it if the spark is just an ember. Although these are ideas were not really new, I would highly recommend this book to newly married couples or maybe even to couples with newborns. Since your marriage surely changes when children join the family. The 12 secrets are not really secrets but are surely great ways to increase intimacy with your spouse. I did appreciate the scripture references and the honesty of the authors and the women they interviewed. My favorite "secret" was #2 where Lipp and MacPherson elaborate on the fact that God did make sex for us and that it is not only supposed to be good, but fun. A wise mentor once shared with me that a husband wants a Sunday school teacher as his wife during the day but he would prefer his wife act more like a prostitute in his bed. It is a hard transition to pull off, but I do understand what my friend was trying to say. That is also the message that Hot Mama is trying to convey. Proverbs 5:18 states, "May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth." This book was entertaining and a great reminder of ways I can show my husband that I love him. I have already begun to try some of the "secrets" to keep my marriage alive and fun for both of us. This book is a quick read, but it is well worth it. Enjoy!
As moms we often fall into the pattern of yoga pants and pony tails. With everything on our plate we often fall into bed exhausted with little interest in keeping our marriage hot. But our marriage should be our first priority. Our husbands should come first on our list. So the two authors polled friends and used their own experiences to co-author a book about how to keep the romance sizzling hot in your marriage. This book was entertaining. But it also had some useful and practical information. My husband enjoyed my reading it as well. =) The authors shared stories, advice, and Biblical knowledge to show woman that they are important and their marriage is important. I appreciated how they talked about each person being unique and special. This would be a great book to give as a shower gift or to the mom who is in the midst of raising her children. I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
Once again I have the challenge of describing an awesome book I've read (a hot challenge to be sure), and I feel completely unable to describe just how awesome it is. I know it's a lot to say take my word for it, but here I am a reviewer who knows what she loves about books but who is short on writing skills to describe it. I will say I felt the authors definitely covered it all and in a way that was fun and challenging. We want the best for our marriages and Kathi and Erin show us how to get past obstacles that may stand in the way of one of the best gifts God has given us in marriage- sex! Even if you think you've got it all figured out, you'll still learn from this book and enjoy it in the process.
