After fifteen years of collecting notes on Biblical womanhood, my precious wife overcame her fears and put her studies in writing.
She read book after book, hoping someone else had already done what she believed was needed, but to no avail. More and more, she found that Christian books on marriage reflect a psychological approach to the husband/wife relationship. In other words, they promoted people-managing techniques on how to get others to do what you want. Some of these techniques are just good ole' common sense like, You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar. Others are unabashed recommendations on how to manipulate your husband to achieve your own goals. Understanding your husband psychologically and how to better communicate to him are valuable for interpersonal relationships. Nevertheless, this approach does not deal with who you are or how God's desires you to live your life.
Not only has my wife studied and taught Biblical womanhood, she is a qualified, older woman with the credentials to teach the younger women. In our fifty-plus years of marriage, she has faithfully lived up to all the truths presented in her books, as she came to know each of them. She patiently lived as my helpmate for our first twenty difficult years while I searched for my manhood.
I know of no other woman of whom I could better testify that Ginny is truly a Biblical woman who is living successfully in today's world. My prayer for each reader is that you might experience the relationship my wife and I now possess, which is largely due to her having lived most of her life according to the principals set forth in this book.

My fervent prayer is for each woman who reads this book. May she be refreshed, encouraged, and stimulated to a renewed eagerness for God's truths. The results of her hearing and obeying God will be a heightened sense of self-worth, a reinvigorated marriage, and a strengthened family. For these things may she give honor and praise to God alone. I pray further that her life will present to the world a praiseworthy example of God's design for womanhood. This prayer is offered in Jesus' name and for His glory.
I love your wife's book; it changed my life! God brought it into my life at a time when I was asked by a very new believer to disciple her as she faced enormous marital disharmony. I taught her what I learned from The Other Side of the Garden and they are very happy now.
Personally, I was rebuked and challenged as I faced my critical attitude towards my husband's decision to accept a job that earned him close to minimum wage in the beginning. His decision was actually very wise, because his salary has quickly increased by 5 times the amount he started at!
My friend and I learned together that we must submit to our husband's leadership with a good attitude, THEN TRUST GOD TO PROVIDE FOR US, because God is always faithful. Personal letter from Bekka
