GREETINGS FROM SHANNON ETHRIDGE MINISTRIES!
We continue to rejoice over the impact that the Every Woman series is making in places we never dreamed of. The following e-mail is from Shauna in the United Kingdom:
I just wanted to thank you for writing Every Woman’s Battle. I wish it had been written years ago when I started dating. Although I have been a Christian all my life, I compromised my principles in that area because I thought I was too strong to fall. I was wrong. Until I found your book I wondered why it was so hard for me to resist temptation and why I kept getting involved with the wrong kind of guys. After reading it I realized that the wrong guys know the right things to say and knew how to make me feel wanted.
I have read your book twice and read a couple of chapters occasionally when I feel the heat of temptation is turned way up. I bought a copy for a married friend who is struggling with old feelings of her ex-boyfriend and recommend this book to many women. Thank you for posting your email address in your book. You are probably flooded with letters so I appreciate you reading mine.
God bless you, Shauna
We were also thrilled to learn recently that Shannon’s first book, Words of Wisdom for Women at the Well, is now making a huge impact in an Indiana prison thanks to Ida Johnson:
First of all your books are phenomenal and I thank God for giving you such insight. I am a mentor for women at Sheltering Wings Center for Women in Danville, IN. We are a domestic violence shelter and use your book Women at the Well for one of our bible studies. We all love the lessons and I have even introduced it to my church where we use it in a bible study as well. As part of our ministry for the shelter, I teach at the jail weekly… Many times the women sit and experience God’s cleansing and fullness right there in the jail. I can’t tell you how many women are sobbing by the end of the lesson and several have committed their lives to Christ as a result. They continually ask me for copies of the book because they are so blessed by it.
- Ida M. Johnson
And WE are blessed by those who share our passion for ministering to women with the message of sexual and emotional integrity and intimacy with Christ! Please pray about starting your own women’s group, or if you are already involved in a group, please email us and let us know what God is doing in your midst—email@example.com.

Every Young Man/Woman’s Battle Mission Trip to Zimbabwe
Shannon and her family have been invited by Youth for Christ to do a speaking/ministry tour through Bulawayo, Zimbabwe from September 1-15th. We are very excited about the opportunity to distribute hundreds of Every Young Man & Woman’s Battle books and to speak to public & private school youth and college students, as well as parents and their children about the rich rewards of living a lifestyle of sexual integrity and intimacy with Christ, especially since the HIV/AIDS epidemic is a major health issue in this region of the world. Please pray as plans are finalized and support is raised to fund this missionary endeavor. If you would like to donate funds toward Every Young Man & Woman’s Battle books to be distributed on this trip, please email us at email@example.com.
