31 Days to Great Sex : A review and a giveaway


Good morning, friends and sisters! Today I am honored to be sharing the ebook with you “31 Days to Great Sex” by Sheila Wray Gregoire. Sheila has been an encouragement to me as I have started this blogging journey, and her ministry reaches thousands of women needing wisdom.

While I didn’t get a chance to follow Sheila’s original “29 Days” on her blog, I was able to read through her book over the last few weeks and I wanted to give my perspective as a higher drive wife. 31 Days to Great Sex, while written primarily to marriages where the husband is the higher drive, does do a good job of noting that this isn’t always the case. Days 1-8 Sheila writes about how to turn sex into something positive; days 9-12 she writes about emotional intimacy; days 13-20 is about physical intimacy and days 21-25 she tackles the importance of spiritual intimacy. She ends with writing about how to keep the momentum going on days 26-31.

As I read through the book, there were several days that were especially challenging and thought-provoking. On day 3 Sheila discusses ideas about beauty, and even though I am a higher drive wife I still found myself relating to her words about seeing myself as God sees me. Day 8 is about hitting the reset button on your sex life, which holds a lot of truth and insight for those of us who have had sexual hurt in the past. Finally, there was so much to glean from her “time out” chapters, where she addresses issues regarding trusting in God and finding true life.

If you are a woman who does not have a higher drive, I highly encourage you to get this book and work through it – it will be life and health to your marriage. If you are a higher drive wife with a husband who is willing to explore healthy sexuality with you, then this book would be a great resource for you to both grow together. You may have to switch gender terms on some of the days, but there is still a lot of great information reagarding how men and women are made. If all marriages were able to live according to the truth of sexual freedom found on her pages then the world would be a much happier and healthier place. Today may be a great time to start your marriage down that road.

You can purchse your own copy of 31 Days to Great Sex here.

Also, I am excited today to have two copies to give away for free. All you need to do is to leave a comment on this blog for your chance to win one of the two copies.

  1. Oh, you have no idea how God is using you to help me! Thank you for your blog. I am praying for you, too and I thank God for you!

  2. Thank you for sharing your heart and life with us. I am a higher drive wife and it is very encouraging to read your blog. Prayers and Blessings for continued blogging success.

  3. I too am grateful for your blog. Often I start composing comments to your posts in my head…but the day gets away from me and I don’t end up sharing my story/thanking you for your posts. I guess it takes the change of winning something to get me to take action and comment 🙂

  4. Thanks so much for your review of Sheila’s latest project…..Hubby and I loved going through quite a few of the 29 days, so I would love to get the new and updated version! My husband loved the ways to play together and the section on flirting.
    Thanks so much for your encouragement to us wives in the 20% Club. Keep up the good work of helping us to maintain the main thing– Christ at the center of our lives.

  5. Interesting. I usually don’t bother to read books like this because the idea of having that much sex seems unrealistic in our marriage; one because he is rarely home that much and two because I’m the higher drive wife. However, I am always curious about the idea of emotional and spiritual intimacy. Those ideas were things I had never heard until I started following The Generous Wife and I don’t know what they really mean much less if I am achieving it. I know for years in our marriage we did not, but we are doing much better recently. Your blog came into my life at just the right time and I am so glad that you are out there. Thank you.

  6. I am all about support groups and never even considered there would be other women out there with the higer drive. Like i thought i was gifted or cursed! For my husband and i, we were pretty much even-steven while raising the family. But now that we are empty nesters, we are finding out that the role of driver has definitely switched. Looking forward to learning the difference between emotional and spiritual intimacy, which by the way, no paster has ever touched the subject from the pulpit.

  7. Love Sheila and her books! I really enjoy reading your blog. At one point in our marriage we were working through things and I became the higher drive wife, but God is working things out and we kinda take turns off and on now. 🙂
