Who doesn’t want to enhance their sexual desire?  Who wouldn’t want to make their sexual relationships top priority?  Who wouldn’t want to reawaken their sexuality?

Stop with the questions.  Now we can find the answers to those questions and lots, lots more in Rachel Greene Baldino and Judy Ford’s latest self-help book for those looking for strategies to boost their sexual desire, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Enhancing Sexual Desire (Penguin). 

I throughly enjoyed this book because as a baby boomer who has seen better days in the romance area, romps in the bedroom tend to get put on the back burner.  As more time goes on, you only get buried in that long dark hole and sometimes it’s really hard to find that intimacy you once shared with your loved one.

After reading Rachel and Judy’s book, my sex life has greatly improved because they have shown me steps to take to change bad habits and rejuvenate that tired, sagging libido.

Inside you’ll find tips for successfully navigating the six stages of love relationships.  You’ll also find satisfying suggestions that will help you get back in touch with your sensuality.  And, you’ll also find ways to spice up your sex life and discover your personal intimacy style.

This is a very thorough how-to manual to feel passionate again with your loved one and who wouldn’t want that? 

It’s wonderful to feel passionate again!  I highly recommend The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Enhancing Sexual Desire to keep those love fires burning!

If you’re looking for help, if you’re looking for hope, if you’re looking for encouragement, look no further than Sermonsnacks. This powerful devotional will inspire you along life’s journey and make the ordinary seem extraordinary.

Donald Collette chose the best Scriptures and perfectly matched them with thought-provoking comments to put together a devotional that is powerful, yet easy to read. Using Scriptures from both The Message and the New International Version, Sermonsnacks offers help, hope, and encouragement for every facet of your life: to build your faith, for the times when you are in pain or suffering, for the times when you’re lonely, and for help with work and your finances. When you seek help, hope, and encouragement in your family life, in your marriage, and in your senior years, Sermonsnacks will be there with words of Biblical wisdom and insightful, inspirational commentary.

I will keep Sermonsnacks by my bedside and read it every day as part of my morning and evening prayer ritual.

Choices: My Secrets

 Choices: My Secrets

Don’t you wish there was an easier way to start parent/teen discussions with your child? Now there is!

Thomas Wade Bounds’ new series for teens, Choices, gives parents a way to jumpstart conversations about the important choices facing our young people today. In the first book, My Secrets, released by Xulon Press, young Rachel gets pregnant after one night of passion shared with her boyfriend Gary. She doesn’t find out until after Gary leaves for college and he never returns any of her messages. Left alone to decide what she will do, Rachel believes abortion is the only way. As a frightened Rachel waits for the doctor to come in and perform the procedure, she passes out and has dreams of her unborn child, which make her realize she might have another choice.

My Secrets delivers a powerful message, but it is a bit heavy handed for my liking. The book would be better with the help of an editor, but it was still a quick and easy read–which can be important when trying to spur those parent/teen discussions. It will be interesting to see how this series of books develops and what topics will be discussed next.
