Don’t let the title fool you; I found that this book is a whole lot more about “substance” than sex. Yes, there are humorous, real-life stories (and I loved those!) There are also reflection questions at the end of each chapter that would work as well for small-group study as they do for individual reflection and journaling. A small sampling of these include:
- sins vs. quirks
- nurturing yourself
- putting your schedule in order
- fostering intimacy in marriage
- personal holiness for single women
- making rash judgements
- healthy friendship
- building your marriage
- goals for motherhood
- the Christian life and popular culture
My compliments to editor Hallie Lord and all the contributors to this excellent book.
