Four Fun Marriage Book Giveaways!

I’m so excited to feature two books written by the lovely ladies who partnered with me
on the Revive Our Marriage Series Sheila and Darlene!

It’s 10 p.m. You want to start snoring. He wants to start snuggling.

Is there really a way out of this impasse? What do you do when after a few years of marriage, sex has become, well, kind of ho hum. And you wonder what all the fuss is about.

In Sheila’s new book, she helps women–whether they’re about to walk down the aisle, or whether the wedding cake has long ago been devoured–get a new outlook on sex. It wasn’t created just for men; it was created for us, too! And it connects us together on three levels: physical, emotional, and spiritual.

Using her sense of humor and research from surveys she conducted of thousands of women, Sheila tells us how we all can experience a great sex life–and a great marriage!

For new brides or veteran wives, The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex will help you and your husband experience intimacy the way God intended. Focusing on how sex unites us physically, emotionally, and spiritually, Sheila’s like a “funny big sister” who tells it like it is.

Sheila is giving away 1 copy of her book! 

Instructions to enter are at the bottom of the page πŸ™‚



The ebook The Good Wife’s Guide is now AVAILABLE in PRINT! 


Darlene from Time Warp Wife is giving away

THREE print copies!

In The Good Wife’s Guide New York Times best-selling author Darlene Schacht encourages women to joyfully serve their families. In doing so she offers reasons for achieving a well-managed home backed by scripture and gleaned from experience. As well she provides readers with detailed cleaning and organizing schedules for practical application.

The Good Wife’s Guide encourages women to make faith and family their first priorities from a place of sacrificial love. It reminds women that they were created with a specific purpose in mind, which is that of being a help meet. In supporting our husbands and living in unity we reflect God’s blueprint for marriage.

If you like books on organization and housekeeping, this book is for you!

Walk with the King,





    1. I would love to win! I need these books (and so does my husband)! Thanks for all of the wonderful work you all do!

    2. I’m having a hard time figuring out how to post a comment, haha so I am just going to hit reply on someone else’s comment. I hope that’s okay. I am not married not dating anyone (despite my best attempts…I’m seeking to wait & trust God in this area) but really hope to be married one day so I figure getting these books would be great to put in my ‘hope’ chest if you will. I haven’t really been able to relate to this series on marriage that much but I’m encouraged that when I do get married I’ll have a great group of ladies to garner support from to get it right. So here’s to hoping I win for my future marriage someday! πŸ™‚

    3. I know we…no make that I, need to read this book…I just don’t think I have it in me…yeah, right case and point!!!

    4. I could not figure out how to leave a comment so I am replying to a comment and hoping that this will enter me in the give away! Both books look amazing and I could grow from either one! Thank you for giving books away and for this ministry! It is a huge blessing to me and my family! God bless you!

    5. I’m getting married next June and I have been researching great books that I should be reading to prepare myself to be a great wife…wish me luck!

    6. Both of these books look great! Been working on the whole organizing and cleaning thing but as soon as I get one thing going the previous things fall apart.

  1. I would LOVE to win either of these! I have only been married a little while but from the beginning have not known how to make “it” exciting or fun!

  2. What if it’s the other way around?? My husband starts snoring and I want to cuddle πŸ™‚
    I would love this book. πŸ˜‰

  3. I’ve been wanting a resource written by and for a Christian woman! Praying this giveaway is mine and through it God will reconnect me to the desires I had 10 years ago. Our God is so good I believe He could even make the desires greater than EVER. AMEN!!!

  4. I am truly blessed by reading your blog, and I would love to win these books to help not only my own marriage but to share with all the women in my church!

  9. Pinned, and shared on FB
    Im a newly engaged girl so wouldn’t mind starting off on the right foot *blush*. Plus I am a fan of Sheila and have heard her speak. I have pics of us knitting together even.

  10. Both books sound good. I would love to win the Sex book then the good wife Book. I have shared the post on Facebook.

  11. I would sooo love to win any one of these! I am trying to help build our church’s Resource Center….we are a three year old church plant so no funds for the Resource Center. But God is good and we have a great start with just over 100 books already!

  12. I would absolutely love to win! I have been married just over 4 months now, and already see some issues in this area. I am an extremely modest person, even around my husband. Would love to read either of these great books! Thanks for the opportunity!

  13. married for 28 years – had an emergency hysterectomy at age 48 – now 50 years old and I so would LOVE to win this book!

    I would love to get the blessing of this good read and I KNOW my sweet husband would love the results of my reading, too!
    With young ladies in our family who will one day soon be starting their own families….this would be a legacy-kind-of-book to share and pass down…
    Thank you for writing it!

  17. Would love to win! Love the blog. Has been a good resource for me to become the Christian wife God wants me to be.

  19. Love your blog! I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for 5 years and had our second child this summer. I’d love any ideas on how to get back into “doing it” with a fun attitude. I’m sure this book would help πŸ™‚

  20. Would *love* a copy of “The Good Wife’s Guide”!! I have been following the blog and would totally love an actual copy to read!

  21. I’d love to win either book. I follow Sheila’s and Darlene’s blogs and they’re awesome! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  22. Would love to win one of the books. 30 years of marriage – I so DESIRE to have the DESIRES I had in the earlier years!

  23. So excited about the giveaway! We’ve been married for 7 years, and have two young girls. We’re always open to ideas for spicin’ things up! πŸ™‚

  24. Yeah – I could probably use BOTH of those books. The hubby would probably appreciate any help anyone can give me on both of those areas of womanhood! LOL!

  25. I would love a FREE book! Love to read and just recently found and fell in love with Women Living Well. Thanks for allowing us to see your heart through your posts!

  26. Hey ladies, I am a keen follower of your blogs! In my culture the idea of being a housewife is mocked and perceived to be laziness and the only option for the illiterate, because of our history! But I must confess that, God has been using your posts to form my world view towards a godly marriage. This has daily shaped my convictions and just reading how fulfilled you are as helpmeets, I took the bold step of resigning from a job that took me away from my young family, which I have come to believe is the GREATEST of all jobs in obedience to Titus 2:4&5. The marriage challenges for the month were fantastic only that my husband has been away on a missionary trip but once he is back I will definitely do them=). Now that am back to the house, Darlene’s book on Organizing & Housekeeping will be of great help to me and my women group of 7. So is Sheila’s book whose blog have just started following. Please let this incredible books reach the soil of AFRICA! Courtney we are eagerly waiting for yours to be out. I have shared on my Facebook account.

  27. Wow! Either of these books would be great! Not only do I need help in all of the above, I love to read! Love this blog too!

  28. Pick Me, Pick Me!
    The sales are going to be going up, Up, UP by the looks of it!
    We all truly NEED these books! Thank You for writing them, ladies!

  29. I have recently discovered your blog and have thoroughly enjoyed your “Revive Your Marriage” series. It is a great reminder to not let my marriage get stagnant, but to work daily to improve and deepen it. Both of the books look fabulous and very applicable!

  30. Wow! Never heard of the first book. I think my husband would be appreciate it if I won. I loved the intro. It sounded funny and interesting. πŸ™‚

  31. I have read the testimony of someone who read one of the books and it was so encouraging to hear that there are practical things you can do to enjoy s*x in your marriage. I am single but bin there, done that and now really wanting to do his will. I want to hear all there is to hear and read all there is to read about doing it right. Doing it God’s way. This book will be a great starting point.

  32. Both books look like such an encouragement. Thanks for sharing. Call it pride or call it being practical, but I hope I win as I would never add the Good Girl’s Guide to Great S*x to my Christmas list! LOL! πŸ™‚ Have a great day!

  33. I shared it on facebook.I am from Serbia -Europe-Balkan,I would like to get this book.I know that women got a problem in this area but do not talk about it. I’m married 15 years and only now I see it. In our church we have a sister meeting once a month. If I get this book I’d like to read it and share it with the sisters in the church. This is a subject that is not spoken at home and I would love to hear that woman.I believe this will help our marriages.

    Thank you for materials I get from you and your book proverbs 31, I’ve already shared with them.

  34. Courtney, I am sure these books will be a blessing to no matter who wins. But I’ll cross my fingers that one of them is me πŸ™‚

  35. This isn’t a book that I would grab first in the bookstore. I would rather pick something that would control my tongue or something, but I felt the Lord say just enter and see if you win.

  36. I would love to win this book. I have been married going on 14 years and I can say that sex gets better in time.

  37. I have been married for almost 15 years come January. I am hear to say every year the sex gets better and better. I think it is because hopefully every year I become more and more of the virtuous woman that the word speaks of.

  38. I am looking to use The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex as a study for the women at my church. It looks like a great book! Hope I win!

  39. Who would not want to read these books and become a Good Wife who has Good Sex? Sounds wonderful to me. LOL

  40. I have read Sheila’s Book and it is awesome! I couldn’t put it down! I so wanted to bring it on vacation, but you know, didn’t want people ask me “Oh, what are you reading?” So, anyway, it is an awesome book! I would love to win “The Good Wife’s Guide” since I love getting organized and having a schedule. I am like you Courtney in that I thrive on a schedule!

  41. Im just about to get married and were involved in a lot of different class to help give us a great foundation to start from and to develop communication and understanding of each other and where we are coming from to continue to grow with each other and remeber to give 100/100 to our partner. This sounds like a wonderful resource to gain great knowledge from as well. I can’t wait to read it! That you for writing such a book about an often uncomfortable topic for women.

  42. I love when these things happen. I have been praying about this exact topic. I would love to win this book. If not, maybe it’s just God pointing me in the right direction! πŸ™‚

  43. October 16 we celebrate 30 years together. When we met we had both been married before. My husband was not a Christian when we married but is now. We have been through many things together over the years and he is still my best friend and love of my life. I have enjoyed this site and am so glad its available. God Bless. I would love a copy of your book not just for me but I share my books with others when I finish reading them. Thank you

  44. I signed up for the emails a week or so ago, but I never read them until today. WOW! Thanks for the great stuff. Today’s was real important as we are older and my husband worries that I hurt too much. I have lupus and lots of pain at times. I need to convince him that I don’t notice the pain once we get involved in *. I never really thought about it until you mentioned this. I just knew I hurt when I went to bed.

    Thanks again,

  45. Thank you for this wonderful series. I’ve really enjoyed it. Both of these books are now on my “to read” list πŸ™‚

  46. Though we have been married 35 years, I belive these two books would be an enhancement to our marrige. Also, we have three married adult children which these books would be a great Christmas present. God Bless!

  47. I would love to win one of these. I am a busy mother of 2 and maybe these books would help my relationship with my husband.

  48. I am loving your site! I am learning so much about having a relationship with Christ and how through that enhances my marriage. Thank you!

  55. I would love to win the first book. I have always struggled with that area of our lives. Being molested at 10 raped at 14 & 18 I really find it hard to enjoy sex. This book would be a big help for us.

  67. I would love to win! I’m sure either book (but especially Shelia’s) would help me serve me husband when he comes home soon from his 8 month deployment πŸ™‚

  68. I would love to win. 25 years of marriage and things the last year have been really bad, starting with my husband’s loss of job through and ugly process (and he worked for a “christian” organization). All of the books look to be worthwhile reading!

  74. Hoping to win! I think this is something so many of us need help with at some point in our marriage, but just isn’t a topic publicly talked about. Sounds like a great book!

  75. Hi Courtney, I find it very hard to as a wife and mother to keep it all together some days. Learning how to manage your roles and still find time for yourself I know is important, but there are always time of being torn of all the duties/mask/roles/hats you have to do/wear.

  105. I tweeted this. πŸ˜‰
    I would love to see if anyone responds to the posts as it seems “sex” is still so secretive and almost taboo in the Christian community.

  106. These books sound wonderful and very refreshing – 36 years married and still loving the man God provided!

  107. I’ve been married almost 33 years, and these books intrigue me! Would love to read anything related to Christian marriage (I’ve been a Christian for only almost-9 years) and how to improve upon it. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for this opportunity!

    (Going to go share on Pinterest and Facebook now!)

    Thanks for the offer!

  110. Just hit our 17 year anniversary on Sunday! It was pretty anti-climactic … yep, you can read into that as much as you want. The book sounds like what I need. πŸ™‚

  111. I’m still working the kinks out of the new blog I’m starting so I’m not including it just yet in my contact info. Your blog is one of only a few I keep up with right now!
