Far too often, Christian women receive a barrage of negative messages about sex – and very few positive messages. J. Parker turns that norm on its head and presents an entire book full of encouraging tips, advice, and wisdom for women who want to enjoy a great sex life in their marriage – but aren’t sure how or where to begin. She lays out the Biblical case that great sex should be the norm for both wives and husbands, dispels the negative stereotypes that so many women have heard all their lives, and offers simple steps for getting started and then growing a great sex life.

The role of women has always been a huge subject. If we try to stand on our own, we are feminists and if we depend on men then we are weak. It is a no win situation in life with how the gender roles are laid out. This book describes how Esther rose up and carried out the plan that God laid before her. She knew that she was destined to do something more than everyone else thought she was supposed to do. It is inspirational to think that we all have a plan in the eyes of God and we need to listen in order to go forth and carry it out.
