Customer Reviews for The Passion Principles
Review 1 for The Passion Principles
Date:February 24, 2014
Why yes, you did read that right. A sex book review up in here, woo! Before you start blushing, remember God created sex for husbands and wives to enjoy together. And that, my dear sisters, isn't shameful at all!!!
Shannon is a million-copy best-selling author, international speaker, and certified life coach with a master’s degree in counseling/human relations from Liberty University. Her passion for healthy sexuality actually began in Mortuary College. Her first career choice, becoming a mortician, led Ethridge to work on dead bodies. Many she embalmed were young people who had died from AIDS or committed suicide as a result of an HIV positive diagnosis. Because of her own promiscuous teenage years, she knew it was a miracle that she was standing over the embalming table rather than laying on top of it.
What I liked the most about this book is that Shannon holds nothing back, much like myself. She doesn't dance around a subject, skip the hard stuff or give a candy-coated answer. I could totally relate to this book from front to back. The questions on this book are questions we have all had at one time or another and Shannon answers are based on Biblical truth, what other kind if truth is there?
There are a few things the world (and the enemy) want to see fail. Christianity and marriage rank among the top of that list. And when you put them together, a Christian marriage, you get hit that much harder. The enemy wants to keep sex and intimacy in marriage in the dark so their continues to be disillusionment. Thankfully Shannon wrote a book that is full of grace, freedom and encouragement that matches with God’s plan for sex in marriage!
My favorite question that she answers...will there be sex in Heaven? What? The thoughts of that never even entered my mind, ever. So I was totally intrigued!
This book is an amazing read for engaged couples right up to couples married for 30 years. If you want to read an honest book of what is right or wrong, or normal or not when it comes to sex with your spouse you should consider grabbing a copy. It will open your eyes in a brand new way.
This book was provided to me free of charge by Book Look in return for my honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Review 2 for The Passion Principles
On My List of Top 5 Marriage/Intimacy Books
Date:January 22, 2014
Finally! It was like a breath of fresh air reading Shannon’s latest books, The Passion Principles: A Celebration of Sexual Freedom in Marriage. I cannot express how much I loved The Passion Principles! Not only did she hit all of the hot and vital topics, she dove deep into scripture and God’s amazing plan for sex in marriage. There is great freedom and blessings for sex in marriage and sadly many of us have a skewed view. Thank you Shannon for finally writing a book that is full of grace, freedom and encouragement that matches with God’s plan for sex in marriage! Bravo and thank you for speaking truth and light into this darkness. The enemy wants to keep sex and intimacy in marriage in the dark so their continues to be disillusionment. I am thankful there are people like you willing to bring God light to it! Thank you, thank you!
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for an honest review.
I have read most of Shannon's other books and have enjoyed them. Actually, they have been life changing for me. So I was eager to review The Passion Principles.
What I like about Shannon is she holds nothing back, she doesn't skip the hard stuff or give fluffy answers. The questions on this book are questions we have all had at one time or another and Shannon answers are based on Biblical truth, what other kind if truth is there?
At the end of some questions (chapters) are a prayer you can do with your spouse or thoughts for your to ponder and discuss. What a concept. That's missing from so many marriages. Praying with your spouse is a huge step in making your marriage strong and having open conversations about sensitive topics is also so needed but rarely done.
If you struggle with what is right or wrong, or normal or not when it comes to sex with your spouse you should consider grabbing a copy. It will open your eyes in a brand new way.
A ebook copy of this book was given to me by the publisher through Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
