Before I started practicing Fascinating Womanhood, our home was anything but happy. Now I can truthfully say that the harmony we have now is more than I thought possible and increasing every day.
Considering the fact that my husband and I have been religious for 21 years, it really came as a shock to me to find that I was the one that needed to do the changing. Only when confronted with my self-righteous attitude while reading Fascinating Womanhood, could I accept it and change.
Oh, the heartache I didn’t need to have gone through with our oldest son. He is just 20 years old and he has had mama telling him what to do and when to do it for too long. Now I can see what caused his rebellion in the first place. Me! He returned home this summer to work on the farm for his father and, with the help of Fascinating Womanhood, things went smoother than they have for years. Our 15-year-old daughter is responding too and our married daughter is a faithful follower.
I’m saving the best for last—my husband. He takes me to dinner at least twice a week. He has cancelled his big hunting trip to Alaska, which he has been planning for six months. He says he would rather spend the money taking me to Mexico. When I have gone out of town to shop, he services the car for me, without being asked. The other day, he even carried my golf clubs to the car because he thought they were too heavy for me. All this for the girl who has been “killing her own snakes” for years! He knows how I love flowers and has brought me two bouquets he picked himself. This from a man I’ve always considered as being cold and unsentimental.
