From the author: "... I had no idea God had so much to say to us ladies until I began going through God's Word verse by verse, writing the different sections of Created to be His Help Meet. Many times as I read a passage, I would say to my husband, "I'm not going to include those verses in my book because if I do the ladies (of any religious group you can think of including my own) will not like my book or promote it." My dear husband would say to me, "If God thought it was important enough to inspire it as part of his Word to us, then you should include it." And so I would cringe and add one more controversial subject after another..."

Introducing Michael and Debi Pearl
Michael and Debi Pearl have been married since 1971. They have 5 children and 15 grandchildren. Between them they have authored 14 books and 8 booklets which combined have sold millions. Much of what they write deals with marriage, child training, and homeschooling.
One of their recent books, Good and Evil (Bible stories in Marvel comic format), has been published into 25 languages with another 60 translations soon to be ready for press. The Pearls also publish a 32 page bi-monthly magazine with a subscription of over 100,000. Needless to say they are prolific writers and public speakers.
On another note, Michael is an inductee into the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame and holds several world titles, including Gold Cup winner of 2008-9, long distance thrower of the year with a record all time high of hitting a four inch target at 63 feet, and he is the undisputed best tomahawk thrower of 2009, holding the world title.
When he is not teaching the Bible or speaking to audiences on how to have a good marriage and obedient children he is teaching kids how to stick a bulls eye with a knife or hawk.
Debi Pearl and husband Michael have 5 children and 15 grandchildren. Between them they have author 14 books and 8 booklets which combined have sold millions. Learn more about them and sign up for the No Greater Joy bi-monthly magazine at NoGreaterJoy.org.
Debi Pearl grew up during the 1960s at the height of the hippie revolution and the Jesus Movement. The forced draft due to the Vietnam War brought a sense of eternity to the youth, provoking them to seriously consider their souls. It was a time of a great move of the Spirit of God. As a teenager, dressed in tie-dye tee shirt and long drooping peasant skirt, she stood on the highways and byways sharing the gospel and seeing miracle after miracle of Gods amazing grace. She married her life mate, Michael Pearl, in 1971.
Allison MooreWare Shoals, SCAge: 25-34Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Beware!September 17, 2014Allison MooreWare Shoals, SCAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This book presents an extremely unbalanced view of the roles of husband and wife. It is a waste of time at best and dangerous at worst. Women were never meant to be doormats in the kingdom of heaven. This book tells women to not have good friends that are other women, and to avoid enjoying the friendship of their children because the husband is supposed to be the one and only relationship that we are supposed to have. If we are not careful we could end up avoiding a relationship with even God in following the ridiculous advice in this book. It puts women under a huge load of condemnation to be everything for their husbands. Only God can be everything for your husband, ladies. For a more balanced view on the subject, read Boundaries in Marriage.

I was dumbfounded by the stark differences in the reviews of this book. The readers either absolutely hated it or completely loved it. Of course, that means I have to find out why.
My feeling after reading this book for the 3rd time in two months is that a woman must be sold out to Jesus Christ to benefit from this book's wisdom.
This book has convicted me, touched me, I have laughed, I have cried and was mad at myself. I think the most significant thing I have received from this book is a changed heart. I am working at God's pace now. I have purchased several copies and have given them to my friends. I plan on purchasing many more to give away. I am also working with our pastor's wife to start a woman's class to study this book.
God's word is glorified through this book. This book has opened my eyes to how very evil our world has become. Mrs. Pearl touches on so many subjects that hit home for me. All of the little things us girls do to destroy our marriages without even realizing it. The devil wants to keep us ignorant. If you purchase this book and study each chapter, your life and marriage will forever be changed with unspeakable blessings!
Awesome! If you have any doubts, purchase the book. I wish I could give it 10 Stars!

As a single woman, I was curious whether or not this book could help me. It could! Not only is it preparing me for a Godly marriage, but it also helped me immensely with my relationship with my father.
I found the vast differences in the reviews posted intriguing. Some made me strongly wonder if the reviewer had truly read the book, just skimmed it, or went off of another's interpretation of the book since I found a lot of false and misleading information. So, this is one book you may need to read for yourself before concluding what you think about it.
If you are a woman looking for someone else to blame or to do the work in your struggling relationship, then choose some other "feel good" material (there are some suggestions listed on negative reviewers' posts). However, if you are willing to return to the basics of the Bible and to be honest with yourself and God, then you have found the perfect aide to your journey to a God-blessed, Bible-based marriage.
Notice that the reviewers who followed the suggestions given by Debi Pearl are now calling their marriages "deliriously happy" and "blessed". There is a reason why.
My sister-in-law read the book, changed her marriage, added two more little ones to their home (love being an auntie), and recommended it to me. I've read it, altered my bad relationship habits, readjusted my worldly thinking, bought a copy from christianbook.com to be shipped to my Christian sister with an atheist husband (Lord willing he, too, will come to know the Lord through her testimony), and bought it for one of my former high school Sunday school gals who just got married this summer.
When I moved to a foreign third-world country and had very limited suitcase space, I made sure this book was packed along for the journey. Even now I can see it sitting on my bookshelf.
Don't miss out on a blessing from Heaven!
SummerOntario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is a great book for married and single woman.June 14, 2013SummerOntario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoyed reading this book. It's a little hard to get into at first but then it really picks up once you stick with it. I'd recommend this book to single people who are about to be married. I would strongly recommend this book to newly weds and those that have been married a long time. This book will improve any marriage. I gave away copies to friends and family for Mother's Day.
momof2ormoreCanadaAge: 45-54Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Two warningsFebruary 23, 2013momof2ormoreCanadaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Warning 1: In chapter 7, the author does away with older women and our hopes for sanctification/improvement as wives. She shuts the door on us, killing off any hope for a better marriage, arguing we cannot be transformed because of older age. (How unbiblical is that?)
Warning 2: This book may mislead wives into replacing God with their husbands. I have seen former godly women become husband-idolaters, following the advice in this book almost sectarianly.
