Please try again later. My wife and I have longed for the best possible marriage that God intended for us. We read "Every Man's Marriage" together. This book is a "must read" by couples that have already read "Every Man's Marriage" and want to go to the next step.
If you a married couple want the marriage that you have dreamed of and that God has promised you, but have not read "Every Man's Marriage" together probably not the best way to start , the husband should read "Every Man's Marriage" and the wife should read "Every Woman's Marriage" separately recommended , and then tackle reading both together. Thank you Shannon Ethridge and hubby Greg for this incredible book. Without that book, we never would have picked up Shannon's book. Sincerely, Dave and Cathy Sharp.
One person found this helpful. Excellent book if your looking to improve yourself. This book helps you examine what YOU can do to improve your marriage, and inspire your husband to want to reconnect with you.
But again, YOU have to change, and this book shows you how. It has good Christian principles and lots of scripture to back it up. It really helps you see what you can do to make your marriage blossom.
Loved this book because it brings up really good things that sometimes you just do not think of. I like that it is Christian based and gives examples from different perspectives. Used this book in a bible study women's group and the men used the men's one at the same time.
Learned a lot from this book. I've really enjoyed this book. It kind of refocused me onto the solution which is to change what I can about ME. I can affect change by changing my reactions and behavior instead of trying to change my husband's.
One of the best marriage books I have read. My mom's group enjoyed studying it as a group. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is a great book about marriage. I did find parts of it a bit repetitive, but ultimately it was the best that I have read on the subject. It makes you take a humble look inside yourself and teaches you to look past the "flaws" of your partner. If your marriage needs a little work I highly suggest this!
Although I am a man I would highly recommend this book. It has a lot of great advise and you will learn so much. See all 57 reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 1 year ago.

Awareness is brought or returned to a level that will make you prouder. In one of the exercises, I actually found tears rolling down my cheeks as I released a lot of emotional pain. That's an amazing level of understanding and it took her kind and warm way of expression and suggestion to have such a profound reaction. Gina Ogden did an outstanding job of writing a wonderful contribution to understanding women's sexuality, specifically, low sexual desire.
She brings years of experience as a therapist to her work as an academic researcher. The combination of using these two distinct roles to examine women's sexuality and sexual desire provides the reader with a very comprehensive and dynamic picture of what women's sexual desire is and how it can be enhanced.
As a mental health counselor myself, I found that the way in which Gina describes women's sexuality in her book is a very important, and not regularly found, perspective in the mental health literature. Gina is able to write about low sexual desire from a clinical perspective, but also go beyond that to address the spiritual aspects of women's sexuality. I have found very few academic authors that delve into this realm with such tenacity and such a stand for women to be completely fulfilled in their minds, bodies and spirits.
The book encourages the reader to look at themselves as the source of their sexual desire, and strives to foster women's relationships with themselves as the starting point for a fulfilling sexual life. This is very important and empowering for women, who are many times taught by their caregivers and society to focus on factors outside themselves to fulfill themselves. Gina's book gives women permission to ask for what they want in sexual relationships and feel good about getting their needs fulfilled.
In this book, Gina does a wonderful job of writing about the different aspects of why women's sexual desire may wane, which in my opinion could help readers find a context for their own experience. The book also provides the reader with some excellent exercises for getting back in touch with their own feelings of sexual desire, including a guided visualization and other exercises.
As a licensed mental health counselor specializing in sex therapy, I highly recommend this book to women who are struggling with concerns related to low sexual desire! Cathy Lee - marriage and family therapy candidate. Gina Ogden makes an excellent case for the premise that desire issues are based upon desires not being expressed or met and not because there is a lack of desire.
Whether the reader agrees with this theory prior to reading it, or does not, The Return of Desire is an excellent read in its comprehensive appeal ranging from research-based work to its self-help format.
It pragmatically goes beyond raising awareness to discussing ideas and exercises that enable one to access desires that lie dormant and effectively acknowledge them with self or express them to a partner. While it is written specifically for and about women, its egalitarian message speaks to all.
Ogden's model is a hope-filled, strengths-based, non-heteronormative one that fortifies any practice. I have sent this book to a few other friends who are over Gina invites the older woman to mature beyond the Youth Culture style of being sexual.
In addition to giving a model for desire, she asks some direct and surprising questions about sexual orientation that could shake up ones life! Her discussion of spirituality and sexuality are well considered and welcome in a world of bump and grind.
This is the first review I've ever written on Amazon. I read the reviews on here all the time before I buy things, and I always appreciate the time people take to write them, so it's about time I return the favor!
Anyhow, I chose to review this book first because I think it is pretty amazing. I'm not very far into it yet, but I can tell already the message is profound. Holistic help for your intimacy woes, rather than some piecemeal drivel that reduces your problems to "hormones" or whatnot. Wow, thank you Gina Ogden! This book is just what I needed.
This is a good book to help you rediscover your sexuality if it has taken a back seat to other daily issues. In my training towards becoming a certified sex therapist I have read countless books and I can honestly say that this is the one I enjoyed the most by far. I recommend it to clients, friends and family alike.
It's as if someone sits you down in a comfy chair and finally talks to you about sex in a warm, kind and funny way - A way that we always wished we could talk about sex with our mother or aunt, but never could. Gina fleshes out this topic in such a way that you can get out of performance based thinking and truly consider sex, passion and life in a whole new paradigm, that is inclusive of so much more than just the sexual act.
Gina is able to settle our fears and provide such great comfort about the fact that we're all unique and wonderful women capable of creating our own destiny in every area of our lives. I was fortunate enough to attend a weekend workshop with Ms. Ogden and found it to be a life changing experience.
My life has sparkled in a more vivid way ever since - In and out of the bedroom! One person found this helpful. See all 57 reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 1 year ago.
