Here's a bit of the press release on our book:

Passionate Housewives Desperate for God is an exceptionally well written book. Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald do not pretend to be the perfect wives, mothers, and homemakers, but they do have a heart for God and His glory.... This book will make you think, will convict you, and will.... give you a “fresh vision for the hopeful homemaker.” —Martha Peace, biblical counselor and author of The Excellent Wife

Have you struggled to reconcile God’s vision of virtuous womanhood with worldly myths that marginalize and mock the role of the homemaker? Do you wrestle with cultural messages that demean the homemaker’s calling and exalt instead the emotionally androgynous power-woman, the wife whose worth is measured only by the degree of her self-ambition, the shape of her body, or her money-making skills?

Pull up a chair, dust off the cookie crumbs, and join Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald as they they lay aside demeaning stereotypes like the “Stepford wife,” and reveal the 1950s’ “perfect homemaker” trap. Laughter and tears will flow, and hopefully you will be infused with a renewed vision for victory as a wife and mother.


Watch the Video Clip

Passionate Housewives Desperate for God: Fresh Vision for the Hopeful Homemaker may be both the most controversial and the most encouraging book of the season. In this video clip, authors Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald address how their new book counters the ideas communicated in the popular TV show “Desperate Housewives.” You may also download and read the preface of the book, written by Stacy McDonald.

Thanks so much for all the encouraging words while this on-again-off-again book project proceeded in fits and starts! Stacy and I feel elated to have it finished at last, and we pray that you enjoy it!
