What I have been Reading

I always like to find books that teach and challenge me to be a stronger christian, wife, mother, friend etc… one of the ones I’m reading now is Passionate Housewives Desperate for God. Although most of it’s focus is on homemaking, the principals apply to every christian woman. It is a great read, although it has taken me forever to get through it just for lack of long blocks of time, I plan on rereading it. I am attatching a few reviews from others that have read it as well as the writers blog.

Reviews:

In an age of constant confusion and conflict over the role of women, Passionate Housewives provides a clear-cut message of biblical encouragement and hope for every woman who truly desires to glorify the Lord as a wife, mother, and homemaker.” —Crystal Paine, wife of Jesse Paine and founder of BiblicalWomanhood.com

I highly recommend this book – for everyone to read, not just “housewives” but also working women, single women, married men, men interested in finding a wife someday, and all church workers, anyone wondering what in the world is wrong with the church (and the world) today. It may have a cheesy title and cover photo, but interesting points are brought out that have real validity to not only the woman who is a keeper at home, but to anyone who is living in the world today.

Book Description:

Have you struggled to reconcile God’s vision of virtuous womanhood with worldly myths that marginalize and mock the role of the homemaker? Do you wrestle with cultural messages that demean the homemaker s calling and exalt instead the emotionally androgynous power-woman—the wife whose worth is measured only by the degree of her self-ambition, the shape of her body, or her money-making skills?

Delightfully fresh and honest, Passionate Housewives Desperate for God debunks the modern ‘desperate housewife’ myth and provides fresh vision for the homemaker. Hear a former Christian feminist share how she went from a die-hard homemaker-in-training to a dedicated career woman, and then back again—after God gripped her heart. See the hollow counterfeit of whitewashed feminism and me-ology destroyed. And consider the beautiful picture painted in Scripture of the truly fulfilled homemaker who glories in the hopeful calling God created for her.

Pull up a chair, dust off the cookie crumbs, and join Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald as they they lay aside demeaning stereotypes like the ‘Stepford wife,’ and reveal the 1950s’ ‘perfect homemaker’ trap. Laughter and tears will flow, and hopefully you will be infused with a renewed vision for victory as a wife and mother. Discover what it means to be a passionate housewife ‘desperate’ for God alone!
