Praise for Every Woman’s Marriage
“Finally! An insightful and frank discussion about the perspectives, expectations, and behaviors that impair marital relationships. With Shannon’s expertise on sexual and emotional integrity and Greg’s male perspective, Every Woman’s Marriage offers practical guidance for reigniting the intimacy and passion every woman longs for.”
–Ginger Kolbaba, managing editor of Marriage Partnership magazine and author of Surprised by Remarriage
Praise for Every Woman’s Battle
“This book sheds light on the often unspoken sensitivities and issues that women wrestle with. Not only is it well written, it is liberating and refreshing with sound principles for overcoming the things that threaten to keep us from experiencing the fullness of joy that is part of God’s big-picture plan for our lives.”
–Michelle McKinney Hammond, author of In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man and The Unspoken Rules of Love
“In today’s permissive culture, it’s dangerously easy for even the most principled of women to reason away unhealthy thoughts, attitudes, and flirtations with men who aren’t our husbands. In Every Woman’s Battle, Shannon Ethridge bravely and respectfully draws a line in the sand for all of us. This is a must-read for every woman who desires true intimacy and sexual integrity.”
–Constance Rhodes, author of Life Inside the “Thin” Cage
“There’s a common, almost Victorian, myth that women don’t really struggle with sexual sin. That myth causes many women to feel a double-shame. The shame of struggling sexually is compounded by the assumption that few, if any, women share the same battle. Shannon Ethridge artfully and boldly unveils the war and offers women a way to enter the battle with courage, hope, and grace. Every Woman’s Battle will help both men and women comprehend the glorious beauty and sensuality of holiness. This is a desperately needed book.”
–Dr. Dan B. Allender, president of Mars Hill Graduate School and author of The Healing Path and To Be Told
“If you’re like me, you want the deepest connection possible with your husband, you want a soul-to-soul connection not encumbered by anything that could damage it–and you’re going to find Shannon’s book immeasurably helpful in doing just that. Every Woman’s Battle is the best resource I know for embracing God’s plan for sexual and emotional integrity as a woman.”
–Leslie Parrott, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good Marriages
“Many of my Bad Girls of the Bible readers have tearfully confessed to me their struggles with sexual sins–promiscuity, adultery, and self-gratification among them. Since we cannot pretend Christian women don’t face these temptations, it’s a relief to have a sound resource like this one to recommend. Shannon Ethridge’s straightforward, nonjudgmental, step-by-step approach can help women come clean in the best way possible–through an intimate relationship with the Lover of their souls.”
–Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible, Really Bad Girls of the Bible, and Unveiling Mary Magdalene

We all agreed that Shannon Ethridge's transparency and honesty made this book unique and kept our interest. I especially like the way the book focuses on our role as women.

I picked this book, Every Woman's Marriage, simply because I want my marriage to be better and so that I can increase my knowledge on how God wants me to be the best wife possible for the man I chose as my husband. Yes, I chose him with God's help. God didn't make me marry him; therefore, I believe that I have the responsibility to create a great home atmosphere and, yes, I believe I need to be a helpmeet for my husband. Shannon has many...
