Real Help for Real Moms Nov 14, 2008
Having kids changes everything! Jill is real about what to expect from ourselves, our spouses and our kids. Its good to be reminded that we're not the only ones who might wonder what happened to the spark once in awhile. And its also nice to be reminded that we CAN do something about it!
A fabulous book for a mom of young ones Jan 11, 2006
I loved this book. After having two kids in 2 1/2 years, I felt like sex was the last thing I thought about, the last thing I wanted to do. And I felt like a freak because of it! here I am in my late 20's and not desiring sex. Jill presents the material in a funny, non-judgemental way. My husband and I have faith in our God and Jill makes it very clear that our relationship with God is the most important part of cultivating a healthey relationship with each other. It is a book about sex, but it is more importantly a book about healing and strengthening a marriage in a Godly manner. A must read for any stressed new mom!
Disapointed by a few aspects Mar 1, 2004
Although I was initially excited to read this book, I found myself disapointed. There is some helpful information on building intimacy,however;I was disheartened to come across her chapter on being a mother or lover where she discusses how she learned not to be "child-centered" by keeping her children out of her bed and letting her babies cry it out along with quotes by Gary Ezzo(He is known to be very controversial). She came across as her way was the only right way to raise children and to have a Godly marriage and I wholeheartedly disagree with her. As a mother of 4 myself, my husband and I have taken a different road and still maintain a Godly marriage. I know many many others who have done the same. I would have liked to have seen her display the different options, pros and cons and left the parenting styles up to the individual couples...The good information on sexuality I have found in other sources such as Intimate Issues by Dillow and Pintus.
Couldn't put it down! Jan 5, 2004
Someone recently gave me a copy of Jill's book. I didn't think I would be interested in it because our kids are long gone--married for years. But as I thumbed through it, I couldn't put it down! I would highly recommend this book for any marriage in any season. Sherrie Eldridge, author and speaker
Graceful guide to intimacy Dec 3, 2003
Jill Savage has gifted Christian couples with her new book, Is There Really Sex After Kids? The central part of the gift is grace--lovingly teaching the reader about those things that inhibit intimacy, better ways to communicate physical need, and male/female differences of desire. The Christian community needs more such books of grace. I recommend this quickly-read book highly.
