This is probably one of the best books written for single or divorced women...ever. Michelle gives advice that makes a light bulb literally click in your thoughts about relationships with men. It was like, "Oh...ohhhhh, [click], that makes sense". I think it's better than "Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus"..hands down for single/divorced women. No competition here. She uses her own experiences and then slowly integrates the biblical advice from Proverbs (one of the best guides fo...more

The first time I read this book.. I was just reading.. then.. a friend of mine had it and I re-read it.. and this time.. it was like being in class.. I could NOT get enough.. McKinney Hammond's writing is so upfront.. it is really like sitting in the living room with your aunts and your girlfriends and them giving it to you straight.. Everything my mother ever told me about dating.. was reaffirmed in this book.. Its a must-read for any woman.. whether she claims to be Christian or not.. even tho...more

Scripture based guide on how to date... Worked for me!! I married the man I met after reading this book!
This book delve deep more in the single life and what we should do as a single in order to get more leverage and continue to maximize the potential. I think every single woman should read this book

untuk pembaca di Indonesia, terdapat versi indonesia terbitan interaksa dengan judul "Wanita penuh pesona"

This book so far would be great for any single woman of today to read. So often women chase men around for their affections, when it is the MAN's job to the chasing. The book explores gender roles in the realm of dating.

This was an interesting book. It just talked about all the things my mentors have told me through the years! But if you are looking for advise for being a godly woman -- this author is amazing!
Judith (Judith'sChoiceReads)
I loved this book!! The principles were great and really emphasized the self-worth of a woman as well as the importance of valuing yourself above all else when seeking a romantic relationship. I have to say just how refreshing it was to come across something like this, especially in this time and age where the rules on finding love and keeping it are all up in the air. I liked that she rooted her principles in biblical scripture and brought it all back home to what mattered most: what God ordain...more
There are some great prayers in here. Every woman should be empowered by some of the ideas in here. And she's hilarious!

The book:
Women in their desperation to have someone in their lives, have forfeited their power and have become frustrated victims in affairs of the heart. Rules are made to maintain order from relationship to flow of traffic, the principle remains the same. Stay in order and things will move smoothly, get out of order and you will run smack-dab into difficulty.
The principle woman as she calls her, is a woman of spiritual principle, not only does she have a learned knowledge of who she is and h...more
The reason I rate it a 3 is because although the message is good there is some fault to it. Please be aware that you can pray for a husband and all that but that does not mean he will show up on your door step tomorrow or that you will run in to him the next day you said your prayer or that he will have every exact quality that you have ever wanted. God does not work that way.... This is a good guide of how a woman should be and how to act but don't let it be you bible on dating and men. Let God...more
As usual Michelle cuts to the core of the very matters women think about with honesty and plain-speaking and she backs it all up with scriptural references that you can study so you may know for yourself. She brings up a great deal of valid points a lot of women haven't considered as well. A great read for any woman who wants to be married.

GET A LIFE! my favorite quote from this book! READ THIS ASAP!! This book needs to be thought in schools to our girls!! This is awesome for all women and great principals for women to live by to start teaching our girls at very young age!! I love her sarcastic writing style! She's blunt and funny!! Read it in two days! LOVE IT!!!

Recommends it for: single Christian women
I read this book, along with "The Rules." I found this one to be more biblically based, but both were relevant. What I took from The Rules was to have some self-respect, girl! What I took from Secrets was much more biblically grounded principles for interacting with men. Excellent read, married or unmarried.
I think this was a well thought-out and written book. I enjoyed her authenticity and genuineness along with truth from scripture. It was encouraging and very helpful both spiritually and practical. I recommend this to all single and married women who struggle with relationships and finding the "one".
A must-read book for single ladies out there.

This book outlined the principles a lady/woman must have while waiting for his man God prepares for her and in keeping him.

Reminder: Be a PRINCIPLES woman. Wait for God's best!

a dear family friend-turned-sister gave it to me before I set for an "adventure" here in Africa.. maybe I wasn't looking closely on the bookshelves before, 'cause if I did, I should have finished this book already! but wt's the rush.. I was advised not to read it at one sitting..rather, take time on it..ponder on each chapter as I go thru.. and that's what I've been doin'.. and with each passing day, the picture gets more and more clear to me.. about my worth as a woman..

I'd like to give credit...more
