  1. I have heard great things about this book. Since my husband is an Army Chaplain, this would be a great book to keep on the shelf.

  2. Hi Courtney, Looks like a great book! I already follow you on FB, but I will post your comment on my page! Thank you for doing this giveaway!

  3. Hi Courtney! Thanks so much for all you do. You will never know how much you have helped me in my decision making and thinking things through. I have learned to step back and not be so critical of my husband and to accept him for who he really is mostly because of things posted to your blog.
    I would love to win a copy of this book!
    Thanks for all you do!

  4. This would be great, as it is something that I know that I struggle with. "Many questions" in that area is something me and many of my friends have had with our marriage. It would make for some great coffee discussions…=) 4roberts at bellsouth dot net

  5. Does it answer the question of why God created women to not really need it but men do? Or why since I don't get out of it what he gets out of it, that fact leaves my husband less satisfied and more times than not our "encounters" end in frustration and awkwardness?? I genuinely find it unfair that it is harder for women than it is for men. I enjoy being close to my husband but the act is just never enjoyable for me. I don't think a book is going to solve these kind of problems that I think probably most women would admit to if they were honest. A positive attitude is not going to change a physical feeling (or lack thereof). I wish God had made us with more similar drives. I find it hard to not feel unfair about this.

  6. Thanks for all your encouragement! This book would be great as I strive to be the best wife possible to my husband.

  7. This looks like a wonderful book. Since my hysterectomy I have been struggling with intimacy with my husband. I would love to receive this book.

  8. Hi Courtney – what an encouragement you have been to me since I discovered your blog. I have checked all the bookstores in our city for a copy of Initimate Issues to no avail. I'm sure it would be a tremendous help. I have only been married for 2.5 years and some issues are already cropping up…we could really use the help!
    I also follow you on facebook and twitter… Cheers!

  9. I borrowed this book from the library after you mentioned it a few months back. But would love a copy of my own for future reference!

  10. Wow…I have never heard of this book but it looks interesting. I have a wonderful marriage but I am sure this book would make it even better. Thanks again for all you do Courtney, you are truly a blessing!


  11. I love your blog! It's so inspiring! I follow you on my yahoo account and on facebook! It's great! I would love to get this book for my daughter. She was a senior in high school when she got pregnant (last year) and is now married to the young man. They both are in college, working and raising this little baby. They are trying to live a life glorifying to Him even after the mistakes they have made. I think this book would be extrememly helpful in solidifying their marriage and give them much needed guidance. Thanks for the opportunity!

  12. I follow you on Facebook and Twitter (and get your feed) 🙂

  15. Courtney this book might be just what I need. And your'e right…my husband will really appreciate it. 😉
    Thank you for your insightful blogs each day!

  16. Good Morning to yall. Hope all had a very special Easter. I have been on the this page for about a month or so.. I love reading your blogs each morning very uplifting and insparational to me.. I have you as an extra precaution, if I miss some of your blogs here I catch them on FB, GMG and Twitter.. So I have all the bases covered.. I just love to read each blogs. Join the book club starting this May.. Just waiting for someone to answer for a partner in a group, but I know someone will come through.. Thank you Courtney for the give away and Good luck to all. A Sister in Christ Olga..

  17. Hi Courtney! It is a great book. I used it as a resource for my "Good Girl's Guide to Sex" coming out with Zondervan!

    I think we women underestimate how important sex is for a guy. We need to feel loved to make love. They need to make love to feel loved. We each need to meet the other's main need before we get our needs met! It can be tricky.

    That's why I've always said that Sex for women is all in her head. We need our heads to be engaged for our bodies to follow, and we need to DECIDE we want to make love. But it's not always easy when we're tired….

    Thanks for posting about this!

  18. I just hopped on over from Smockity…This would be a WONDERFUL book to own. Thanks for the chance to win!

  19. I have talked about this book with my girlfriends since you've recommended it, but never got around to buying it… partially because I didn't want to admit that it should be something I might read.

    Before we were married, I never thought that intimacy would be something that we would struggle with. Like many engaged couples, we couldn't WAIT to be married, enjoy the honeymoon and learn each other. Almost 2 years later and I know now that this is a book I should have. I struggle with and have questions I never thought I would. Our marriage would definitely benefit from this book. Thanks for the opportunity Courtney!

  20. Me me me! I hope I win! I downloaded a sample of this book when you talked about it recently and it is a Godsend. Exactly the words I needed to hear.

  21. how exciting, i was actually looking this book up after you talked about it. I already follow you on Twitter and FB, but will share the link!

  22. I have heard about this book many times, but I still haven't read it, so I would LOVE to win a copy! Thanks so much 🙂


  23. It would be wonderful to win. Even after 24 years of marriage (or especially after 24 years of marriage) I need this reminder.

  24. Hi Courtney, appreciate your thoughtful posts and giveaways. This looks like a good book for a wife to have.

  25. Always excited to make my marriage stronger. My husband and I are high school sweethearts and i have found that sometimes its difficult to realize we are not the same people from middle school- it is challenging but when both partners are committed-beauty is the only option 🙂 Please enter me in for this book:)

  26. Thanks for all you do. This book is especially intriguing to me since I do struggle in this area. I've been praying about it and maybe this is would help.

  27. I have heard AMAZING things about this book! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  29. Would love to win a copy of this book. After you post last year, I went an bought an old library copy and have already loaned it out (after I read it of course!!) Absolutely great book!!!

  30. Hi! Would love this also. I think most of us here would though. haha. Hubby and I have been on the rocks for a few years.
    Thanks for everything.

  31. Wow! I had this on my mind last night and the morning. So seeing this topic here was like wow! lol I would love to win this. I have some questions in my mind myself. I follow you on facebook too! Keep encouraging others and walking with The King!

  32. I would love to win this book. I am already a follower of your site. (Don't know if I need to add a separate comment or not). I can be contacted through my blog, but just in case, snowflakes2hotcakes {at} gmail {dot} com

  33. I already have to book, so please don't enter me in your give-a-way. However, it is a great book!! Thank you for taking the time to focus on the issue of Intimacy.

  34. Courtney every time DH & I are having an issue in the intimacy department I come to your blog and on that day I find a post with the video about the importance of intimacy in a marriage. This is the third time that this has happened now and the funny thing is that after him and I have an unpleasant discussion about intimacy etc.. I know that if I look on your blog I will find that you have re-posted the video. God speaks to me often through your blog and has definitely done it once again. I replied to your video post once about how I was doing so much better in this area and in saying YES every time but after speaking to a friend something changed and I have not been doing as well, you told me that what she said to me was a lie and to get this book but I have not had a chance. Maybe here is the chance to get it since I can definitely use it and it often comes to my mind that I should really get it. Sorry for the novel, God is so funny sometimes when he speaks and it's clear that He wants me to be healed in this area. Thanks for the opportunity from this giveaway. biancamichele @ hotmail . com

  35. I would love to have this book! We're still newly weds (this side of 5 years). jukic . zr @ gmail . com

  41. Hi Courtney, I am actually new to reading blogs. Actually your blog is the only one I read at the moment. I am trying to read through all of your blogs from the past few years. I'm half way there. Anyway I saw your video talking about the Intimate Issues book and went the next day to the book store to buy it, but they didn't have it in stock so I ordered it off EBay. I was so anxious to receive it, looking everyday in the mail for it. A week or two later I received a email from the seller from eBay saying she was sorry but they didn't have that book anymore. Ugh! So I gave up. Until I saw your give away and now I am praying I get this book! Thanks for your inspiration!

  42. Now I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this book it is one I have NOT gotten my hands on yet and I Love the whole getting our households in order. I sure would be blessed to win a copy of this book thanks for doing this give – a – way great idea! Keep walking with the King sis!

  49. Thanks Courtney!
    Excellent points and how important this is to a healthy and loving (not to mention Biblical) marriage. Just a caution with the book: many verses are taken out of context, so just be discerning when reading.

  63. Hi Courtney, did I miss the winner announcements on Saturday? I've searched the blog but can't seem to find it!

  64. I am just new to your blog, but I enjoy it so far. I am thinking of starting one for psychology issues for women. I mostly work with women and I find they have been more open.

  65. Dearest,
    How are you today my dear,I hope you are doing good
    I have something very personal I want to discuss with you,I hope this will not scare you away,I believe if you love me,love will overcome all things
    I have had a personal problem since I was born,with the help of the Doctor that delivered me my late parents were able to keep this a secret from people.I have a body defect that has been with me since birth.I am what you call a hermaphrodite,meaning that I have both male and female sexual organs on my body,however from the physiological,hormonal and anatomical test carried on me at puberty,the doctor was able to determine that I am basically a female,because I have a womb,I have breasts and I mensuration like every other female.The only problem is that I have a small penis.My dear this is my personal problem which I want to share with you.
    My parents were able to keep this a secret and only few people knows about my birth defect,when I lost my parents some few years back.There was a lot of stigma about my condition since I will not play and swim or remove my clothes any how like every other little girl.I continued to be stigmatized for a long period.Because of this I made up my mind to go very far from the place of my birth.I left my country Angola which is in the East of Africa and traveled far to Senegal which is in the West of Africa.I am here under the help of and Evangelist and his wife who has been taking care of me.In this country nobody knows about my condition as I have also managed to keep it a secret
    However few months ago with the help of the Evangelist I was able to get into contact with a Surgeon from Thailand,the Surgeon is Thailand Malay,he is an expert in cases like this because they have a lot of cases like mine in his country.The Surgeon has visited here,he examined me and conducted series of test on me.The Surgeon told me that he could perform a surgery on me to remove the penis.However my problem now is I do not have the money to finance the Surgery,the cost of the Surgery is $23,000,while the Flight Ticket,hotel accommodation of the Surgeon will cost $4,800
    I am sharing this with you to see if there is any means you could help me in my present predicament,I have no one to help me and that is why I am reaching out to you,I hope you will find it in your heart to help me
    Send me a mail and let me know in what way you can help me
    Thanks and may God bless you
    Hope to hear from you soon
