The author, a certified biblical counselor, teaches and speaks on practical applications of biblical principles in honest yet bold, new ways. As one pastor-reviewer wrote, "This is not just another marriage book. I see this struggle so often in marriages - but I've never had a great resource to put into the woman's hand. This is NOT a basic marriage book. This is also not a book that is pushing the old 'shut up and submit and just serve your husband concept. You're going to want to get this book...read it...and get copies to give away to others."

Nothing Else Like It! Mar 31, 2008
I've been married 21 years now, and I've been a pastor for 21 years. I've also been doing biblical counseling for over 15 years now - with marriage being 85-90% of all the counseling I do, and so I can say, "We needed this book!" It's not just another marriage book. Praise God for what Karen has put into writing. She has put into words the struggle that so often exists but doesn't get addressed. I see this struggle so often in marriages - but I've never had a great resource to put into the woman's hand that could guide her in making practical changes to let her husband lead (Of course I was already hammering away on the men with great resources like Lou Priolo's 'Complete Husband' and Doug Wilson's 'Fidelity').
This is a NOT a basic marriage book. There's no chapter on communication, or sex, or in-laws, or parenting. This is focused solely on an area that desparately needs to be addressed, and Karen has done a great job.
This is also NOT a book that is pushing the old 'shut up and submit and just serve your husband' concept. This is a biblical approach to what it really means for a gifted and Spirit-filled woman to still be all that she can be... without 'taking over' and leading.
She gives specific examples and scenarios of exactly what she's talking about, then walks you through what it would look like to do what she's asking you to do in your marriage. Karen and her husband, Jim, have given us a great gift in allowing us to look into their own struggles, and to see what God has done for them, and what God has taught them that they can pass on to the rest of us.
It took real humility to peel back the cover of their lives and allow us to look in as Karen describes what God has done for them, and can do for so many others.
You're going to want to get this book... read it... and get copies to give away to others. As I read it I was making my 'list' of who I could use this great resource with.
