I held on up to pg. 175 after that, my husband showed me where and how she was incorrect and how much Martha mis-quoted the Holy Bible to fit how she wanted it to read. I have MANY reasons why I can't in good Christian faith recommend this book to any ladies out there. I will share a few w/ you & you can decide for yourself.* All through out the book is sprinkled mis-quoted Bible verses taken completely out of context. Martha takes numerous verses (2-4) from the Word of God and entangles them to make one sentence. (ex: pg 162) She also will use only 2 or 3 words from an entire verse to prove her point. Come on ladies, anyone can twist the Word of God to say anything if we did that.* I do work in the home, however On pg. 72, Martha claims that in Proverbs 31:11-31, "nine [verses] refer directly to her work in the home.." Upon your own reading of that passage, you will see that is incorrect. It is little things like this example that are, honestly, just lies about the Holy Bible. I don't see why she felt the need to lie about Scripture to back up her book.* On pg. 78 Martha specifically states that among our husbands and family we should "Put your friends first even if it's time for your period." Through out the rest of the book she continues on stating that if an extra rest time or nap time is needed for our periods, we need to "plan it in your day and cheerfully explain" our naps and rest times are due to our periods. SERIOUSLY? How inappropriate in a house of young boys and to guests from church! That is plain rude to "explain" to your children and pastor! If that isn't enough, she goes on to say how a nap or rest in the day can be lazy and selfish.* Martha makes up verses & gives no references to back up her opinions.
