Book Review: Feminine Appeal

Feminine AppealFeminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahaney

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If it were possible, I'd give this book 3.5 stars.  It's hard for me to find a Christian women's book I give more than that.  While it's got some great advice in it, at the same time, I found offense at the part that said if you stay up late and call yourself a night owl, she likened that to laziness.

While the "Seven Virtures" are good, I also was under the impression this was a good read for single women in preparation of marriage.  While I suppose that is true, the title and the book is focused on the wife and mother.

It did have some great ideas on how to submit without being a doormat (which is how I've generally heard submission taught), how to encourage your children (which I can use with my "niece" and "newphews", how to serve (and aren't we all to be servants of one another) so I would say this is a worthwhile read if you are wanting to learn more about becoming a model Christian wife and mother. 

You can buy it from Amazon here:  Feminine Appeal (New Expanded Edition with Questions)
