    I’m very disappointed in this book. Some very godly women have had their reputations tainted because of cooperation in a work where they were unaware that the final outcome would contain a lesson supporting the miraculous intervention of the Holy Spirit. This is a much needed work and I was very excited. But the last chapter is just plain false teaching. Please be aware.

  2. Rated 1 out of 5


    It has been explained to me that Ashley doesn’t believe in the miraculous intervention of the Holy Spirit and I am very glad. But be careful as you read that chapter (or think about sharing the book) that you are aware of this need for clarification.

    I absolutely loved this book! I’m a college student preparing for life with a preacher and this book answered so many questions for me, some I didn’t even know I had! It only took me about a week to read and although I don’t know any of these women personally, I appreciated every woman’s chapter. I would, and have, recommend this book to other young women.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5


    I’m giving this book 5 stars simply because of the last chapter. I appreciated how open and honest the author was when she talked about the depression that she seemed to struggled with. The other chapters seemed to be too “safe” and were typical of the preacher’s wife stigma. If you get this book, flip it straight to the back and read the last chapter. It was refreshing and wasnt filled with fluff.
