Carolyn Mahaney identifies with the challenges facing women in today's world and meets them with the guidance of God's Word. The feminine virtues described in Titus 2 have transformed her life and the lives of countless other women. This book will show you the appeal of being a woman who lives for God and helps others do the same. Carolyn's warm, practical, biblical, God-centered approach offers the mature mentoring that women of every age yearn for at times. For some, Feminine Appeal may be an excellent stand-in for the mentor they lack right now. For others, it will wonderfully complement the relationship they have with an older friend of the Titus 2 sort. - John and Noel Piper, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis We love this book It's a godsend for both wives and their husbands. It gives women a clear vision of biblical femininity and shows men what to encourage their wives towards. Carolyn has been a friend and mentor to Shannon, and we're thrilled that through these pages she provides women of all ages the same honest, convicting, and hope-filled guidance. -Joshua and Shannon Harris, author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye We'll give this book our ultimate endorsement-we have given it to all our married daughters Carolyn offers the kind of godly, seasoned counsel that is desperately needed by women today. She is practical, authentic, and biblically based. This book ought to be required reading for every woman-married or single -Dennis and Barbara Rainey, Founders, FamilyLife Today Feminine Appeal has had a huge impact on the women of our church. Carolyn writes with a wonderful blend of soundness, encouragement, humility, and practicality that makes this book one of the best on the market for women desiring to please God in these most basic and crucial of life callings. Feminine Appeal has been the single most valuable book on Titus 2 living for women that I (Connie) have ever read. -Mark and Connie Dever, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.… (mere)

The basis of this book is the Bible; plain and simple.

Carolyn leads readers through chapters based on the following topics:

1 The Delight of Loving my Husband
2 The Blessings of Loving my Children
3 The Safety of Self-Control
4 The Pleasure of Purity
5 The Rewards of Kindness
6 The Beauty of Submission

Such books often seem to be written in a loftier-than-thou format which can be off-putting. Mrs. Mahoney, however, expresses her own disappointment in er own ability to live up to what she feels are worthy goals. Readers will be encouraged rather than discouraged.

In, fact, I should attempt to be as honest as Carolyn, is...
I think this is the book that I shared with some moms in one of our previous homeschool groups. It caused some conflict. The other mom took issue with something in the book. If I am not mistaken about which book it was, Carolyn mentioned something to the affect that sex was created for pleasure. The other mom argued that the express reason behind the creation of sex was procreation, only.

The King James Bible states:
Genesis 2:18a
"18And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper meet for him."

Webster defines a help meet or helpmate as:
one who is a companion and helper; especially : wife

Genesis 2:22-25
22And the rib which the LORD God had taken from man, made He a woman and brought her unto the man.
23And Adam said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."
24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh.
25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

I believe that God created woman for man because man was lonely. Adam hadn't even realized that yet. God knew. Adam needed a companion; someone to be a soul-mate. Someone with whom he could share his body, mind, and soul. Intimacy.

I believe God created woman for man so that they could share sexual intimacy...and procreate.

Can you even imagine procreation...the creation of lots of offspring...without the anticipated emotional support of a helper? I know, today many people choose to go it alone. Personally, I feel that's a really hard road to choose and it isn't the one I chose.
I can support others who do and I know it isn't easy an easy path.
Heck, parenting isn't easy even with a devoted spouse!

I am thankful for the man in my life; David. He is a God-given treasure. Our marriage is a blessing to me. We still treasure moments of intimacy and I believe that is just one of the threads that holds us firmly together in God's hands.

Carolyn Mahaney gives 7 virtues of a Godly wife and mother in this book. She helps us seek to be a Titus 2 woman, by helping see how we can delight in loving our husbands, realize the blessings in loving in our children, having self-control, purity, kindness and submission in our lives and the honor of working at home. She was very practical, honest and used God's Word as the final authority, which is the best attribute of any book I read. Well worth your time to read this book! In today's world the issues in this book she deals with are contrary to how many people think. It is refreshing to read a biblical view on how we as women can and should be living. ( )

This book was written both young women looking to live out their faith in their lives and for older women who want to take up the challenge to provide both good teaching and good example to younger women. ( )

I am so grateful to have this book as a resource to help define my womanhood and not the trash of feminism that stripped away the God-given role of women. This book elevates the role of women and brings back the joy of caring for your husband, children and home. ( )
