by Barbara Wilson

If this book sounds like something you might like to read, make a comment on this post and on October 31st, I will randomly pick a winner for a free copy of your own!!
My book and the give away book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.

Do you ever wonder why marriage can seem like the end of intimacy and sexual desire instead of the beginning?
Ever wonder why it was so hard to resist sex before marriage—and so easy to resist it now?
If so, you’re not alone! Many married women genuinely want to feel more desire toward their husbands…and can’t figure out what went wrong. But there’s good news. In Kiss Me Again, Barbara Wilson shows how powerful “invisible bonds” from past relationships can cause heartache, disappointment, and distance for couples in the present. Then—with sensitivity, honesty, and hope—Barbara walks you step by step toward healing…and a rekindling of the closeness and passion with your husband that you really want.
You don’t have to live any longer with confusion, disappointment, resentment, or shame. You can rediscover desire. You can say Wow! again.

Many married women genuinely want to feel more desire toward their husbands. But while sex before marriage was hard to resist, now resisting seems like all they do. In her new book, Barbara Wilson shows how couples can suffer for years from the “invisible bonds” of previous relationships without even knowing it. Hidden emotions of distrust, shame, and resentment can sabotage even the most loving marriage.

In Kiss Me Again, Wilson:

· Shares her own story of healing and renewed desire
· Helps women forgive themselves and their husbands for past choices
· Shows readers how to break free from “invisible bonds”
· Explains God’s plan for helping a husband and wife to re-bond
· Includes conversation helps for both wives and their husbands
· Helps couples reignite the passion that they thought was lost

With assessment tools, write-in exercises, and gentle guidance, Kiss Me Again offers a biblical plan for rekindling the closeness and passion women long for in marriage. Because no past is beyond the reach of God’s healing touch.

Author Bio:

She speaks nationwide to youth and adults with her message of sexual healing, and she teaches frequently in the women’s ministry at the multi-campus Bayside Church in Northern California. Barbara and her husband, Eric, have been married for twenty-eight years.

This book is a very helpful resource whether you were a good girl or a bad girl prior to marriage. It is no secret the women are crock pots and men are microwaves. This book helps the woman to lean more toward the microwave idea. It has great input, it has a study guide, it has questions that make you think, and space to write your answers in the text of the book. It is very informative, and I can see the logic and the science of the book. I DO need to point out though that the first five chapters are VERY repetitive like the author was simply trying to fill space, but maybe we as women need to here this topic repetitively...maybe there is logic behind her repetitivness. Either way, the book was very good and informative and I would suggest it to any woman who is currently a crockpot regardless of past history, good or bad.
