    This remains the only book I have ever thrown across a room, I have a deep respect for books, but this one angered me mightily. The reality is this book focuses very heavily on how a woman is supposed to catch a man with a one size fits all type of attitude toward the subject. I know t...

    Has some good points. Encouraging stories. However, the tone of the book seems to suggest that a woman's only role in life is to marry and drop everything to either devote herself to his ministries or become a house wife. I'm a woman but I'm also a doctor. I have long hours at work and...

    I don?t even remember what prompted me to pick this book up to skim through it one night because I don?t usually read marriage-centered books, but I was immediately captivated. So much so that I ended up staying up well into the night reading through almost the whole book. As my si...

    First off, let me just say I'm not a huge fan of the author.... I certainly didn't agree with everything she has to say. However, I really appreciated the fact that the Scripture used was all taken from the KJV. I also found a lot of the material extremely helpful...much of which I am ...

    Please, please don't read this book or give it to an impressionable person. It has taken years of depression and suicidal thoughts for me to unravel these toxic beliefs. We all are worth so much more than these damaging guidelines. ...

    This book was the most challenging on the subject I have yet to read. While we are to look totally to the Word of God, Mrs. Pearl's insight and wisdom echoes much of the Biblical statutes that I love so dear. My favorite chapter would probably have to be "The Italian Prince." I was ...

    I might not be credible for a review, because I have not read this entire book. But here is some of what I saw: Positive: ~The first chapter on prayer is amazing! Yes! How much we need to pray for the men and young men we know! ~The explanation of character types is very interesti...

    I have three wonderful and beautiful daughters ? well, just let me sing their praises now ?coz I am their mom! :)) ? and it is very important for me to be able to impart to them how to choose their future spouses. Even when my eldest was just a baby, I have already begun praying ...

    Though I did not agree on some of the ways she presented her theology there are many treasures in this book for young women looking to be married someday. There is a lot of life lessons and wise counsel to receive from this book - from very basic fundamental truth to deeper thought pro...

    Not my favorite book on godly relationship advice. The stories were funny and heartwarming. However, I did not agree with all the stances the authors took, or the way some of their opinions were presented. However, their categories for men and women are very accurate and have been help...

    Overall, useful. But some parts were rediculous! I really don't like how the author talks about men. I think it sounds terrible. Your "honey," your "man," "sweetie," no one actually calls their husbands that right? I also didn't like that she's so focused on "what guys like" that...

    Buen libro. En una lectura inicial ofrece consejos que pueden fortalecer nuestro carácter no sólo con la expectativa de formar una familia sino también como solteras. En una segunda lectura, como fue este el caso, sirve como lista de chequeo para revisar nuestro crecimiento como muj...

    Updated Review: While I do not claim to personally take hold of some of the Pearl's views and beliefs on different issues; I can say that the bulk of the information and advice in this book is very helpful, and encouraging, regardless of seeing eye to eye on specifics. It is definitel...

    I really enjoyed her usual analysis of three types of men, The Command Man, The Visionary Man, and The Steady Man, as well as her additional commentary on three types of women. I appreciated the way she advises young women to "have a life" of their own and not just sit around waiting f...

    OK: First and Foremost, I need to address something. I have read some reviews on different Christian-themed books that were suggested to people who did not appreciate the fact that they were recommended books that were "Christian", and that they would not have read these books if they ...

    I love reading books for young women about christian living, and in this case, preparing to meet your future husband. I've read a few books on this subject, and I just have to say that this book is one of the better ones. It has had more impact on me and my walk with the Lord than some...

    Some good points, but I disagreed with a lot of this book. Seemed very bent in its views. Didn't care for it. ...

    Some good points, but I disagreed with a lot of this book. Seemed very bent in its views. Didn't care for it. ...

    I read this book alongside an amazing woman who started mentoring me. The author is a crazy Conservative Christian and unashamedly so - so you have to take everything with a grain of salt, and bring it back to the Bible. I don't think this is a book for non-Christians, at all. You will...

    The theme of the book is godly submission? helping unmarried ladies focus on character building that will help the transition to submission. She identifies three main types of men: the prophet, the priest, and the king. She then goes on to describe how each of these men tend to opera...

    This was my third or fourth reread in about a year and a half. I love this book. God speaks to me through it no matter how many times I read it, and it never gets dull. *** I had read many good things about this book, so finally I just ordered it from Amazon. After reading the fi...

    What I loved about this book was that it gave a lot of very practical information that you can still use even if you never get married. Plus the information was varied and relevant. It has love stories (each one very different as well!) interspersed in between to prove different points...

    This was a great book for teenage girls. There are lots of helpful illustrative real-life stories and good ideas about how to prepare yourself for marriage. That said, there was less emphasis on the fact that God is the only thing that will ever ultimately satisfy, and that we should r...

    I know many people don't like the Pearls because of their "pride and arrogance". I agree that they are rather over the top, but there's something refreshing and unusual about an American Christian in the twenty-first century who dares to unapologetically and unashamedly state their be...

    I appreciated a lot of the concepts and principles presented in this book, but the presentation and stories seemed unnecessarily "weird" in some ways and that was a distraction for me. It was an interesting blend of good information, unusual (and so often unhelpful and confusing) examp...

    Very good - practical teaching that you can put to life. A couple of things I would disagree with (God telling her at age twelve whom she would marry?) but 99 percent was helpful, convicting, and I would definitely recommend it for any young woman. I liked this book so much that after ...

    With any book like this, there were things I did agree with and things I didn't agree with. There are definitely topics discussed in this book that are way against the mainstream culture. It won't be everyone's cup of tea. Overall though, I think the author, to the best of her ability,...

    AWESOME BOOK! I've read and re-read Debi Pearl's "Created to Be His Help Meet", I guess getting a head's up for when I am married. But this book is great for just that! Not only does it tell you what to expect from different types of men, but how to be preparing yourself now as a singl...

    This remains the only book I have ever thrown across a room, I have a deep respect for books, but this one angered me mightily. The reality is this book focuses very heavily on how a woman is supposed to catch a man with a one size fits all type of attitude toward the subject. I know t...

    Has some good points. Encouraging stories. However, the tone of the book seems to suggest that a woman's only role in life is to marry and drop everything to either devote herself to his ministries or become a house wife. I'm a woman but I'm also a doctor. I have long hours at work and...

    I don?t even remember what prompted me to pick this book up to skim through it one night because I don?t usually read marriage-centered books, but I was immediately captivated. So much so that I ended up staying up well into the night reading through almost the whole book. As my si...

    First off, let me just say I'm not a huge fan of the author.... I certainly didn't agree with everything she has to say. However, I really appreciated the fact that the Scripture used was all taken from the KJV. I also found a lot of the material extremely helpful...much of which I am ...

    Please, please don't read this book or give it to an impressionable person. It has taken years of depression and suicidal thoughts for me to unravel these toxic beliefs. We all are worth so much more than these damaging guidelines. ...

    This book was the most challenging on the subject I have yet to read. While we are to look totally to the Word of God, Mrs. Pearl's insight and wisdom echoes much of the Biblical statutes that I love so dear. My favorite chapter would probably have to be "The Italian Prince." I was ...

    I might not be credible for a review, because I have not read this entire book. But here is some of what I saw: Positive: ~The first chapter on prayer is amazing! Yes! How much we need to pray for the men and young men we know! ~The explanation of character types is very interesti...

    I have three wonderful and beautiful daughters ? well, just let me sing their praises now ?coz I am their mom! :)) ? and it is very important for me to be able to impart to them how to choose their future spouses. Even when my eldest was just a baby, I have already begun praying ...

    Though I did not agree on some of the ways she presented her theology there are many treasures in this book for young women looking to be married someday. There is a lot of life lessons and wise counsel to receive from this book - from very basic fundamental truth to deeper thought pro...

    Not my favorite book on godly relationship advice. The stories were funny and heartwarming. However, I did not agree with all the stances the authors took, or the way some of their opinions were presented. However, their categories for men and women are very accurate and have been help...

    Overall, useful. But some parts were rediculous! I really don't like how the author talks about men. I think it sounds terrible. Your "honey," your "man," "sweetie," no one actually calls their husbands that right? I also didn't like that she's so focused on "what guys like" that...

    I really enjoyed her usual analysis of three types of men, The Command Man, The Visionary Man, and The Steady Man, as well as her additional commentary on three types of women. I appreciated the way she advises young women to "have a life" of their own and not just sit around waiting f...

    I love reading books for young women about christian living, and in this case, preparing to meet your future husband. I've read a few books on this subject, and I just have to say that this book is one of the better ones. It has had more impact on me and my walk with the Lord than some...

    I know many people don't like the Pearls because of their "pride and arrogance". I agree that they are rather over the top, but there's something refreshing and unusual about an American Christian in the twenty-first century who dares to unapologetically and unashamedly state their be...

    Very good - practical teaching that you can put to life. A couple of things I would disagree with (God telling her at age twelve whom she would marry?) but 99 percent was helpful, convicting, and I would definitely recommend it for any young woman. I liked this book so much that after ...

    With any book like this, there were things I did agree with and things I didn't agree with. There are definitely topics discussed in this book that are way against the mainstream culture. It won't be everyone's cup of tea. Overall though, I think the author, to the best of her ability,...

    AWESOME BOOK! I've read and re-read Debi Pearl's "Created to Be His Help Meet", I guess getting a head's up for when I am married. But this book is great for just that! Not only does it tell you what to expect from different types of men, but how to be preparing yourself now as a singl...

    Incredible book, honestly. The first time around, I read it straight through taking minor notes, but I think once I read it another time through, I'm going to go much deeper with the practicals. I feel much more prepared and honestly at peace about my role as a helper in the Kingdom. I...

    First off, let me just say I'm not a huge fan of the author.... I certainly didn't agree with everything she has to say. However, I really appreciated the fact that the Scripture used was all taken from the KJV. I also found a lot of the material extremely helpful...much of which I am ...

    Please, please don't read this book or give it to an impressionable person. It has taken years of depression and suicidal thoughts for me to unravel these toxic beliefs. We all are worth so much more than these damaging guidelines. ...

    This book was the most challenging on the subject I have yet to read. While we are to look totally to the Word of God, Mrs. Pearl's insight and wisdom echoes much of the Biblical statutes that I love so dear. My favorite chapter would probably have to be "The Italian Prince." I was ...

    I might not be credible for a review, because I have not read this entire book. But here is some of what I saw: Positive: ~The first chapter on prayer is amazing! Yes! How much we need to pray for the men and young men we know! ~The explanation of character types is very interesti...

    I have three wonderful and beautiful daughters ? well, just let me sing their praises now ?coz I am their mom! :)) ? and it is very important for me to be able to impart to them how to choose their future spouses. Even when my eldest was just a baby, I have already begun praying ...

    Though I did not agree on some of the ways she presented her theology there are many treasures in this book for young women looking to be married someday. There is a lot of life lessons and wise counsel to receive from this book - from very basic fundamental truth to deeper thought pro...

    Not my favorite book on godly relationship advice. The stories were funny and heartwarming. However, I did not agree with all the stances the authors took, or the way some of their opinions were presented. However, their categories for men and women are very accurate and have been help...

    Overall, useful. But some parts were rediculous! I really don't like how the author talks about men. I think it sounds terrible. Your "honey," your "man," "sweetie," no one actually calls their husbands that right? I also didn't like that she's so focused on "what guys like" that...

    I really enjoyed her usual analysis of three types of men, The Command Man, The Visionary Man, and The Steady Man, as well as her additional commentary on three types of women. I appreciated the way she advises young women to "have a life" of their own and not just sit around waiting f...

    OK: First and Foremost, I need to address something. I have read some reviews on different Christian-themed books that were suggested to people who did not appreciate the fact that they were recommended books that were "Christian", and that they would not have read these books if they ...

    I love reading books for young women about christian living, and in this case, preparing to meet your future husband. I've read a few books on this subject, and I just have to say that this book is one of the better ones. It has had more impact on me and my walk with the Lord than some...

    Some good points, but I disagreed with a lot of this book. Seemed very bent in its views. Didn't care for it. ...

    I read this book alongside an amazing woman who started mentoring me. The author is a crazy Conservative Christian and unashamedly so - so you have to take everything with a grain of salt, and bring it back to the Bible. I don't think this is a book for non-Christians, at all. You will...

    The theme of the book is godly submission? helping unmarried ladies focus on character building that will help the transition to submission. She identifies three main types of men: the prophet, the priest, and the king. She then goes on to describe how each of these men tend to opera...

    This was my third or fourth reread in about a year and a half. I love this book. God speaks to me through it no matter how many times I read it, and it never gets dull. *** I had read many good things about this book, so finally I just ordered it from Amazon. After reading the fi...

    What I loved about this book was that it gave a lot of very practical information that you can still use even if you never get married. Plus the information was varied and relevant. It has love stories (each one very different as well!) interspersed in between to prove different points...

    This was a great book for teenage girls. There are lots of helpful illustrative real-life stories and good ideas about how to prepare yourself for marriage. That said, there was less emphasis on the fact that God is the only thing that will ever ultimately satisfy, and that we should r...

    I know many people don't like the Pearls because of their "pride and arrogance". I agree that they are rather over the top, but there's something refreshing and unusual about an American Christian in the twenty-first century who dares to unapologetically and unashamedly state their be...

    I appreciated a lot of the concepts and principles presented in this book, but the presentation and stories seemed unnecessarily "weird" in some ways and that was a distraction for me. It was an interesting blend of good information, unusual (and so often unhelpful and confusing) examp...

    Very good - practical teaching that you can put to life. A couple of things I would disagree with (God telling her at age twelve whom she would marry?) but 99 percent was helpful, convicting, and I would definitely recommend it for any young woman. I liked this book so much that after ...

    With any book like this, there were things I did agree with and things I didn't agree with. There are definitely topics discussed in this book that are way against the mainstream culture. It won't be everyone's cup of tea. Overall though, I think the author, to the best of her ability,...

    I might not be credible for a review, because I have not read this entire book. But here is some of what I saw: Positive: ~The first chapter on prayer is amazing! Yes! How much we need to pray for the men and young men we know! ~The explanation of character types is very interesti...

    Though I did not agree on some of the ways she presented her theology there are many treasures in this book for young women looking to be married someday. There is a lot of life lessons and wise counsel to receive from this book - from very basic fundamental truth to deeper thought pro...

    Not my favorite book on godly relationship advice. The stories were funny and heartwarming. However, I did not agree with all the stances the authors took, or the way some of their opinions were presented. However, their categories for men and women are very accurate and have been help...

    Overall, useful. But some parts were rediculous! I really don't like how the author talks about men. I think it sounds terrible. Your "honey," your "man," "sweetie," no one actually calls their husbands that right? I also didn't like that she's so focused on "what guys like" that...

    This remains the only book I have ever thrown across a room, I have a deep respect for books, but this one angered me mightily. The reality is this book focuses very heavily on how a woman is supposed to catch a man with a one size fits all type of attitude toward the subject. I know t...

    Updated Review: While I do not claim to personally take hold of some of the Pearl's views and beliefs on different issues; I can say that the bulk of the information and advice in this book is very helpful, and encouraging, regardless of seeing eye to eye on specifics. It is definitel...

    I really enjoyed her usual analysis of three types of men, The Command Man, The Visionary Man, and The Steady Man, as well as her additional commentary on three types of women. I appreciated the way she advises young women to "have a life" of their own and not just sit around waiting f...

    OK: First and Foremost, I need to address something. I have read some reviews on different Christian-themed books that were suggested to people who did not appreciate the fact that they were recommended books that were "Christian", and that they would not have read these books if they ...
