Created to be His Helpmeet

A number of years ago, Created to be His Helpmeet by Debi Pearl (wife of Michael Pearl), came onto my radar when several home schooling mums discussed it on an internet forum board. Some highly praised it, while others strongly criticised it.

I decided I didn’t need a book to tell me how to be a ‘godly’ wife, so I didn’t get it.  (A different time and a different me might have thought differently.)

Libby Anne over at Love, Joy, Feminism is currently going through the book page by page and writing her thoughts on it.
