~ From an Anonymous Contributor,
Fascinating Womanhood was a God-send to me, through a friend. I have achieved more “equality” in 4 months from living Fascinating Womanhood than I had ever dreamed of from 10 ½ years of demanding my rights.
Living on a ranch, our financial problems are simply not bringing in enough money for our products we raise and sell. In trying to buy our small place, it’s been a hard struggle with year-round living on borrowed money. When we first moved here, I insisted on “doing the books” to learn the whole of the cattle business. I spent about 5 years in deep worry and depression concerning our finances. We yearned for a vacation but couldn’t even afford the expense of gasoline to go, let alone all of the other things we needed for our family of five children.
Panicky, I tried numerous money-making ideas—digging and selling worms, leatherwork, cake decorating, sewing, mending, etc. Each one fell through, or the profits were hardly worth the trouble.
Upon reading Fascinating Womanhood, I decided to turn the books over to my husband. He resisted, but I kept insisting. He took it over and if he mentions I should do it again, I say, “No, you do a good job so it remains yours.”
We still can’t afford small inexpensive vacations or possessions, but since turning the books and bills over to him, I can feel myself gradually relaxing my worry over money problems. I have improved every aspect of our life together. I’m not perfect, but I believe FW is a wonderful goal to strive for. Because I know God had the book sent to me, I have sought to know God through the power of prayer and to have his spiritual guidance in my everyday life. I am amazed at how He works His mysterious ways to teach and guide each one of us and especially through others!
My outside being is no longer depressed or bitter as it once was, but is cheerful and happy. The deep inner side of me is becoming increasingly meaningful with a sense of inner quietness—more than I ever dreamed I could build in myself.
