by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald
Have you struggled to reconcile Gods vision of virtuous womanhood with worldly myths that marginalize and mock the role of the homemaker?
Do you wrestle with cultural messages that demean the homemakers calling and exalt instead the emotionally androgynous power-woman the wife whose worth is measured only by the degree of her ambition, the shape of her body, or her money-making skills?
Such is the image of the desperate housewife that the modern media, culture, and feminism are promoting with great energy.
In a delightfully fresh and honest way, this book addresses these issues head-on and provides fresh vision for the hopeful homemaker. Hear a former Christian feminist share how she went from a die-hard homemaker-in-training to a dedicated career woman and then back again after God gripped her heart. See the hollow counterfeit of whitewashed feminism and me-ology destroyed. And consider the beautiful picture painted in Scripture of the truly fulfilled homemaker who glories in the hopeful calling God created for her.
Pull up a chair, dust off the cookie crumbs, and join Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald as they lay aside stereotypes like the Stepford wife and dispel such myths as the 1950s perfect homemaker. Laughter and tears will flow, and hopefully you will be infused with a renewed vision for victory as a wife and mother. Discover what it means to be a passionate housewife desperate for God alone!
Passionate Housewives Desperate for God is an exceptionally well written book. Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald do not pretend to be the perfect wives, mothers, and homemakers, but they do have a heart for God and His glory.... This book will make you think, will convict you, and will.... give you a fresh vision for the hopeful homemaker. Martha Peace, biblical counselor and author of The Excellent Wife

Jesus came that we might have life abundant. Passionate Housewives reminds us where we might find that life: in submitting to our husbands, in serving our children through loving and training them, and in believing the Word of God. Denise Sproul, wife of Pastor R.C. Sproul, Jr.
As a mother of eight, I am encouraged to see this book published to help women who desire to walk as passionate servants, who want to do the right thing and who love the natural yearnings which God created in them. We all have a longing to create, cultivate, and faithfully nurture the gifts God has given us. When the gifts come in the form of family, we would do well to listen to the biblical wisdom of Stacy and Jennie to counteract the Western cultures strident cry for self-assertion. I gladly recommend this book for all women who want to honor Him and help others (even a two year old!) to glorify Him by dying to self with joy and thanksgiving. He is worthy of our efforts, and these two authors cheer us on to biblical femininity. Valerie Shepard, wife of Pastor Walt Shepard and daughter of Elisabeth Elliot
In an age of constant confusion and conflict over the role of women, Passionate Housewives provides a clear-cut message of biblical encouragement and hope for every woman who truly desires to glorify the Lord as a wife, mother, and homemaker. Crystal Paine, wife of Jesse Paine and founder of BiblicalWomanhood.com
