Product Description

Review

I read it all in two days. It is really good. If you're a feminist, or a hard headed woman, you will find this offensive. But, if you're a God fearing, modest Christian woman, this will really edify you. I've seen complaints where women say 'it blames the woman for everything!' But, actually, the one for husbands is the same way for them. The point is not to have someone condone your bitterness toward your husband, but to help you see where YOU are wrong. Our marriage has really changed since I read this. We haven't had NOT ONE screaming argument since. And today my husband sent me a text saying, ''You really are a princess. You're more and more everyday.'' What a BLESSING!!!

I could almost feel Debi speaking to me in this book. Some of it was hard to accept but I like the practical advice and the scriptures to cross-reference. I truly disliked the chapter Michael Pearl wrote. It was extremely condescending and I almost stopped reading it at that point. I skimmed quickly through that chapter and was thankful for Deb's voice again. Already implementing changes in my home life. Thank you Debi.

*NOTE* My name is Courtney, and I am on my husband's account, as we order from Amazon on this one and not mine. Amazon does not allow me to post reviews on my account due to the fact I have not ordered a product on it.

'Created to Be His Help Meet' is truly one of the best books for wives that I have ever read. I use it as one of my daily devotionals, and I would highly recommend it to anyone, but especially to young wives like me. It's great to get a good start on your marriage instead of waiting till it's nearly over to try to work on it.
-The book has it's priorities in the right order: instead of saying to submit, obey, keep the house clean, etc. in the beginning of the book Mrs. Pearl deals with the matter of the heart and the spirit. She covers major topics about joy, thankfulness, and contentment. I find this is a wise approach, for if my attitude is right, I am much more receptive to teaching.
-Mrs. Pearl uses commonly known scriptures that speak directly to women such as Proverbs 31, Titus 2, and 1 Peter 3, as well as resorting to God's divine plan in Genesis 1. She covers the attributes that the character of a help meet ought to show, taken directly from these scriptures. Many teachings she clarifies, and her writing is on a personal level: easy to understand.
-At the end of each Chapter, Mrs. Pearl has a devotional review which I found quite useful. In these reviews she gives ideas and scripture challenges. I found her advice genuinely kind and well-meaning, as she also talks about men and the way they perceive our actions/reactions, the way they feel when we think we are 'helping', opening my eyes to how most arguments start. This book is a great asset to any help meet's library.
-That said, I would have to give a word of warning.

It is hard for me to express my distaste for this book strongly enough. I believe this book is dangerous, especially for young believers who are not yet able to discern and a waste of precious time and energy for the rest of us. I'm embarrassed by the fact that this book is labeled Christian as the attitude it portrays is anything but Christian. There is blatant misuse of scripture and if you are not well versed it is easy to be swept away in her ideas. She not only uses derogatory words to describe women, there are also outright insults on many pages. I found the book to be psychologically and emotionally manipulative and on its pages she admits to some ways that she has used manipulation to get what she wants from her husband. In fact she states that women have a god-given ability to manipulate men, that intimate time alone with God is spiritual masturbation, and that it's your job as a wife to keep your husband sexually drained at home so he's not looking beyond (sorry about that but some things need to be said outloud). The vulgar language, demeaning attitude, pompous and judgmental spirit left me wondering what happened to the author that turned her into the person that comes through on the pages of this book.

This book is great at drawing the reader back to the Biblical truths of what a wife should be HOWEVER I have to caution people before reading it: Her writing style is VERY arrogant and the language and name calling she uses is FAR from what I think God would want any woman to use (Christian or otherwise). I find myself skipping portions and trying to concentrate on what the underlying TRUTH is... instead of what the writer says.
That being said, I am learning a lot from the scriptures it is drawing me to... which was the whole point for me. I agree with the PRINCIPLES of the book but she could have worded things much better without the name calling and attitude.

She does have some strong views on mental illness which I completely disagree with but everybody has to be comfortable with their own walk with the Lord and although I disagree with her, I am not offended (despite my own diagnosis of Clinical Depression) because I know that the journey I am on is one I would not have survived without the Lord.

My intention was to pass this on to my daughter some day but if I do that, I would re write the truths and omit her offensive name calling etc.

A friend passed this book to me. It's an easy read w real testimonies not the crazy extremes meant for only certain people. Scripture is their basis but your spirit just clicks and its like Yeah! I've passed to numerous women and its helped every one of them, now they buying copies for friends. A lady I know someone else passed it to her, she loved it cause it confirmed what her mother taught her and her sisters and her sister loved the book too! (They are in 40/50's). This book is only for those that want a biblical marriage, otherwise you probably won't like some of it. I've started a women's group to discuss and share, very excited a out it. I've had the book for over 5 yrs.
