Book Review & Giveaway ~ Passion Pursuit: What Kind Of Love Are You Making?

About the study:

A Bible Study for Women about Sex?!?

Now, That's Different!

Can sex be holy and erotic? Does God have an opinion about sex? What's okay in the bedroom? This audaciously bold ten-week study will answer these and many other questions that women have but haven't had a trusted source for honest, biblical answers. Now they do

Reclaiming God's Design for Sex

Eye-popping pleasure and soul-to-soul intimacy--that's what God intended for a husband and wife to experience. But because of issues in our past, damaging information from the world, or incomplete teaching from the church, many of us don't enjoy these holy gifts.

Through the use of Scripture, especially from the Song of Solomon, Passion Pursuit not only urges women to pursue passion but also details how God has given them permission to do so. It reveals the power a woman has to build up or to tear down her marriage and how she can deal with her husband's and her own temptations with empathy and holiness.

Make Your Marriage Come Alive!

Passion Pursuit offers a valuable and sacred journey to joy and freedom. Pursuing passion takes time, intentionality, and creativity. What husband wouldn't want to be married to the Smokin' Hot Mama like the wife in the Song of Solomon?

This daring ten-week study combines the psychological expertise of Dr. Juli Slattery, formerly of Focus on the Family, along with bestselling author and beloved Bible teacher Linda Dillow. They are from different generations but share a passion to bring God's truth and healing to women for their marriages and their lives.

How About A Few Clips To Whet Your Appetite For This Study?

My Thoughts:

Every once in a while something comes along that you want to give to all of your friends because you find it to be of such great importance. For me, Passion Pursuit is one of those products.

We live in an age of enormous attacks on our marriages. From billboards to books and movies to music we are led to believe that a passionate love affair involves someone other than our spouse. This isn't true! The grass isn't greener at the neighbor's house . . . perhaps what is lacking is a little fertilizer on our own lawns.

This study is described as "boldly audacious" and I would have to agree. You can find other studies on intimacy in marriage but rarely are they so forthcoming on responses to our most asked questions. In this study you will find answers to the most intimate of questions and resources for you to turn to for more in depth answers.

Sex in marriage can be passionate,erotic, stimulating . . . and holy! One of the most thought provoking statements from the book said that many times we get fixated on becoming the Proverbs 31 woman. Do you realize that her story is limited to one single chapter in the Bible. On the other hand the 'Smokin Hot Mama' from the Song of Solomon gets a whole book. Maybe we've got our priorities a little sideways?!!

  1. Last year on our Anniversary my husband went out and bought me a dress and shoes and took me to a fancy Irish restaurant. It was very romantic that he took the time to pick something out for me and it was so special. We had such a great time and it is a great memory. Thanks so much for sharing this awesome study! I love it!

    1.'s the time and thought that he put into it that matters so much! He sounds like a keeper to me. Don't forget to come back tomorrow to see what week one of the study is about.

  2. We don't get many date nights, and this one is a little silly, but when I was pregnant with our 2nd child, I *really* craved the rolls from Logans Roadhouse. He took me and let the waiter know about my craving and the guy brought about 4 baskets out that night!

    1. buttery rolls from Logans Roadhouse. That sounds like date night heaven to me! And 4 basketfulls . . . score! I sure hope you got a to go box. What a fun memory!

  3. Last year my hubby planned our anniversary date. He told me to dress up. Then he got home from work and said I might be a little overdressed for the night... We went mini golfing and then to our favourite pizza pace. Totally not what I expected, but it was so fun!

    1. Any date that the man plans is awesome! Isn't it nice to just go along for the ride and enjoy?!!

      It is also such a man thing to say 'dress up' and then take you mini golfing. HA!

      Sounds like you had a fabulous night. Hope you get many more just like it!

  4. Hmmm... we could use some help in the dating department. I guess I'd go with our first date; karaoke at a coffee house. :)

    1. I think karaoke at a coffee house sounds like fun! My question for you is, did either you or your honey participate in the karaoke?

      My husband will gladly do karaoke but I always refuse. I'm such a stick in the mud!

      Keep watching the blog for some upcoming posts on date night ideas.

  5. Mercy Me concert & dinner!!

    1. Now that would be a fabulous evening! I really enjoy their music. And dinner . . . that's just a bonus!!! Glad you got to go.

  6. We went to a new restaurant and had excellent food, excellent conversation, and excellent service. It's now our favorite restaurant. The excellent service was awesome because for the entire time we dated, we had bad service at restaurants. It became a running joke.
