Kiss Me Again (book review plus 4 giveaway books!)

Remaining pure until marriage can be such a battle, and for many, it is a battle that isn't won. I know that I struggled with remaining pure until marriage. It was a gift that I wanted to give my husband: my virginity. Unfortunately, now I struggle with the "after effect" of my decisions. I was given the book, "Kiss me Again," by Barbara Wilson to review. What a great book! Barbara meets on the topics of remaining intimate after marriage, or rekindling that intimacy. Those two points can be blurred after marriage, and Barbara helps you see how you can get things back into perspective and regain the intimacy.
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.

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.
I think that Barbara Wilson does a superb job with this guided book for women! I hope to work on many of the aspects that Barbara points out in her book.

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

Barbara Wilson is the author of The Invisible Bond and former director of sexual health education for the Alternatives Pregnancy Resource Center in Sacramento. 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.

Marriage is hard, especially when it doesn't turn out to be the all we dreamed it would be. As little girls, we dream of being a bride and having this magical wedding, but what happens when the crepe paper is torn down and the wedding bells stop chiming. I say, "you get as many good resources as you can and understand that you have your work cut out for you". Sometimes in marriage, we get in the way, our past gets in the way, our jobs get in the way... of the blessing that could be ours. This book sounds like a resource that will help to teach us how to get out of the way and let God do the work.

I've learned that marriage takes a lot of work and effort from everyone involved. And that even though people change, it can be for the better. If you grow and change together, you may find new things to love about each other.

Thanks for the chance to enter! This sounds very interesting!

I wish I had some good advice. I married 3 times and picked the wrong guy each time. I have been single since my son was born almost 26 years ago. He is the longest I have ever managed to live with someone. He and his wife live with me now. From dealing with him I think I finally learned patience in bad times but never want to marry again.
