The Lights Are Finally On!

In Quiniece Sheppard’s “Before the Lights Go Out: 11 Keys to Achieve Real Physical Intimacy” she gives Christian advice about love and relationships to other women. Not only is she giving out Christian advice but she is backing up her advice with scriptures from the bible.

“Before the Lights Go Out” is very well written for its intended audience. Sheppard presented eleven keys to real physical intimacy and explains in details each and every key. She also poses question

I can't say enough about the content of "Before the Lights Go Out"! At first glance I assumed that the contents would be the non-fiction that usually end up forcing myself to read from time to time. you know the kind that's read more out of obligation that for pleasure. Boy was I wrong!!!! Instead, I spent mornings, days, lunch breaks & after dinner time with my fiance' delving into every word of the content. The fact that the information is written with fluidity and with a tone that isn't the l ...more

Quiniece Sheppard wrote a relatable, relational, and real well-needed book for an audience in relationships (3R’s). She gives great realistic standpoints in the book such as “If God hasn’t put the two of you together then your relationship is illegal, meaning it is not ordained by God nor is it in His will” (p. 4). She encourages couples to rekindle their broken, or sour relationships as well as singles to seek a godly mate, not settling for less (e.g. baby momma, sidekick, or even play wifey).

Before The Lights Go Out is a book that I Highly recommend; especially to Singles. Quiniece Sheppard has not only given us what's required to achieve Real Physical Intimacy, but she has also shown us what God requires of us as His children. This book is one of my favorites and I've recommended it to many.
I can personally testify that not only is Quiniece Sheppard the author of this book, but she is walking the talk. Her life demonstrates what God has given her to share with us. God is using her

I was asked by the author, Quiniece Sheppard, to read and review her ebook. This book is very different then the books I would normally read. I think it would be a great book for young people that are just starting to date (if they are mature enough to understand) and ones that are thinking about getting married. Quiniece does have section(s) for married people (which applies to me). I really enjoyed how she helps the reader to understand the type of mate you need in your life and if your mate i ...more

First let me just put it out there ~ Never have I read a book that told my business the way this book did.(finished reading this the second time this year in July 2012) I went so far as to purchase them for others who have not yet gotten married and are of the Mind of Christ when it comes to Christ. This book relates to those Already Married and Going to be Married soon. Ladies you want to know how to keep God's Gift under lock and key until you jump the broom??! Well this is it!!

I love the philosophy behind this book. The author speaks directly to Christian ladies, and her focus is often on single women (since that is where her heart lies). Most of what she says is Biblically sound, and she is not afraid to say what needs to be said in a very strong fashion.

I enjoy the fact that this book is organized well, and the message does not change no matter where you look within the chapters. She is not afraid to stress the importance of sexual purity. She does not care if she s

BENEFICIAL ADVICE AND COUNSEL

Single Christians in today's society face many challenges. In a culture where inhibitions are easily set aside, it takes self-control to remain chaste and pure. There are certain qualities the unmarried should look for in a person before pursuing a relationship. Certain keys such as prayer, praise, performance and passion should be present in the lives of a prospective spouse. For God-fearing Christians, a husband should be the spiritual head of his family, leading t

I enjoyed reading"Before the Lights Go Out" Quiniece Sheppard put her foot into that book. As we would say in the south, it was on like a pot of neckbones, LOL. There were many great points that she made in the book concerning prayer, waiting for God to send you your mate, intimacy, self-esteem, and praise. But there was a statement Quiniece made about savings that really took root and penetrated my mind, rarely do we look at savings and think "I value my future" this is why I save. Yes, we save ...more
