Honey I Don't Have a Headache Tonight Review and Giveaway!

I know that we have struggles in our marriage, just like many other couples do that a lot of times revolve around intimacy. The old saying "Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus" tends to hold some truth in that I don't think we will ever fully understand each other!
But there is hope! And the book "Honey, I don't have a Headache Tonight" may have answers to many of the questions we have! Sheila Wray Gregoire of http://tolovehonorandvacuum.com/ is the Author of this book and several other great ones like it.

Here's the quick overview of the book:



"Honey, I Don't Have a Headache Tonight."
Help for Women who Want to Feel More in the Mood

An "Our Pick" from Today's Christian Woman!

It's 10:00 at night. He wants to start snuggling. You want to start snoring. He feels unloved because you aren't "in the mood", and you feel unloved because he only cares about one thing.


He says, "you’re never in the mood." She says, "You only think about one thing." It’s a conflict as old as time.

When it comes to marriage and the issue of sex, there are two opinions and mind-sets and all too often neither give much ground. It’s an emotionally challenging, physically driven dilemma that brings with it frustration, hurt feelings, anger, and even disrespect.
Women wonder why men were created with the switch always turned on, and men wonder why women were created with so many different switches and no instruction manual.

Romance. Intimacy. Sex. They are not the same thing, although they definitely go together and complete the "big picture." Men equate sex as their currency to feeling loved, while women need the emotional aspect to feel loved – two very different needs and therein lays the problem.

Filled with humor and practical advice, Sheila tackles these issues:

How change in the sexual relationship requires change elsewhere.
Why sex for women is often a "head thing."
How television is the biggest enemy to intimacy.
Why forgiveness and letting go of the need to be right is so important.
How self-image issues and past hurts can throw intimacy into a tailspin.
The repercussions of everyday energy zappers.
The threats to Godly sexuality.
The roadblocks of respect.
The cultural attacks on gender.

I am still reading this book, but so far she has a lot of great things to say on the subject. I can see it definitely helping with my attitude in certain areas. ;-) I think anyone who is struggling should read this book.
