Created To Be His Helpmeet: Discovering the Dangers ~ Alicia A. Willis
Created to Be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. I'm a big fan of Debi Pearl's "Created to be his help meet". I had high hopes for " Preparing" as a guide for my daughters. But unlike "Created", this book is both. Debi Pearl inserted witchcraft terms and ideology into her book, Created to be His Help Meet.
Or, is it absolutely wrong of me to leave Mother to handle all the children all day? This book clearly pointed me to fall continually at His feet - "just to know thus saith the Lord.

Has it been fulfilling? More than I would ever have imagined!
Even though I have only compiled bags, hung curtain rods, and taken out the trash, I feel that I have blessed someone - if not all - in the Name of my precious Guide. As I have spent some months in India as a missionary, I have felt so very burdened to return again.
But I am continually seeking the Lord as to what His will for me is.

I will go where He will lead me; I will say what He impresses upon me to say. Aside from this subject, the book covers many other issues - some considered 'intimate. My favorite story of warning was in the chapter "Pie in the Sky," about the girl that became engaged to a godly young man but she was cultivating an intimate relationship with some other guy in Florida through email.
Keeping it all secret, she became a single mother because the guy in Florida finally told her that he was married with two kids of his own. Girls of all ages, shapes and sizes need to understand that Satan is out there to trap us! Our emotions and our feelings - delicate though they be, and a beautiful gift from God - are ready to slip on Satan's banana peels each time a guy walks by.
But here is some of what I saw: How much we need to pray for the men and young men we know! I understand that for a normal teenage girl, it would be nothing though. I do not find this principle in the Bible.
If your husband has a sex addiction it's because you aren't doing your your job. If he's "being a jerk", it's because you aren't setting the right tone in the home. Something that really bothers me is her abuse of the bible at times. She had said that David's sin of adultery would have been prevented if Bathsheba hadn't bathed on the roof Let's pretend that it wasn't the custom in those times to bathe on the roof, the only place that had privacy in homes those days.Michael & Debi Pearl's Creepy Courtship and Honeymoon
I am not saying they she didn't bear any of the responsibility, because she did, but I am appalled at how that scenario was turned so that the Pearls could prove just how evil women are. Another thing that really bothered me was the twisting of Deborah.
Created to Be His Help Meet : Debi Pearl :
Certainly not God, for He had delivered the victory into the hands of a woman Jael because of Barak's ungodly response to Deborah's instruction! I don't know if his response "I will not go unless you are with me" is cowardly or scoffing her, I haven't figured that out, but it is obvious that God was displeased with BARAK, not Deborah.
Also, she is great at advising women to go to their husbands with their emotional needs and I wholeheartedly agree, but warns that spending too much time with women and getting close may result in you becoming a lesbian she didn't use that word, but she definitely alluded to it, I would get the direct quote but I threw the book away as soon as I was done.
Jesus said that the world would know who we are by our love for each other, and he didn't seem at all worried that a deep love for fellow sisters or brothers would become something unnatural perverted.
Created to Be His Help Meet -
There was some advice that was given that absolutely scared me. One was advising women who were feeling pain during intercourse to suck it up meet your husband's needs Any pain during what is a normal bodily function means that there is something wrong, not that you need to deny yourself, merrily pretend there is nothing wrong and get through it.
Another thing that bothered me is a woman was confessing that her husband was breaking into cars and having her stand guard. Debi's advice was to call the cops and turn him in How about confessing herself since she was helping? These would be biblical and godly instructions.
Another thing - and this is the last one, I promise - she instructs women to visit their husbands in jail who have molested their children There is a time for forgiveness, there is a time for confronting your offender, and yes he is their father, but this turned my stomach and it's in knots writing this. Making an innocent child visit and pretend everything is okay with the man who tarnished and stole their innocence Don't bad mouth the man, but don't bring him jailbait either.
And - okay, I do have one more - I grew tired of her using scare tactics to get the reader to do the right and in her mind "godly" thing by your husband.
He will have an affair if you don't do this. He will leave you for someone else if you don't do that.
