Well, for those of you who haven't read this on my mom's blog yet, and even for those of you who have, we are just so excited that we can't help but mom's book is done! Those long days of writing, re-writing, editing, conference calls, study, more writing, re-writing, etc...are done! We are eagerly looking forward to getting a *real* copy of the book. We are so grateful to Vision Forum for their long tedious work hours and their patience as the manuscripts were passed back and forth. Here is a little blurb about the book:

Passionate Housewives: Desperate for God

Fresh Vision for the Hopeful Homemaker

By Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald

Have you struggled to reconcile God's 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 homemaker's 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 1950's "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! Paperback. Approx. 200 pgs. $16 (available through Vision Forum soon)

Passionate Housewives, Desperate for God challenges women to enthusiastically embrace our high calling, that of wife & mother. Be encouraged as Jennie and Stacy reveal God's truth and expose the lies that lead to disillusionment. May you come away empowered by God's grace to love and honor your husband and to joyfully lead your children by example to love God and serve others. ~ Michelle Duggar, wife of Jim Bob Duggar, whose family story has been featured on Discovery Channel's Raising 16 Children

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
