Reader Response to WOMAN SUBMIT!

Wow! I opened your book and couldn't stop reading it. I read it right through to the end and every single chapter resonated with me. I intend to read it again. What a powerful testimony. … I had been in the relationship for 18 years and it took me 4 years to leave so I totally understood the chapter on addiction and obsession…the shame and everything you described, that was me. … I thank you for sharing your story and giving hope and a voice to others like myself.  I have chosen to no longer accept abuse in my life.  -M

  • ...I am a Christian woman. My husband is abusive and sometimes violent. What do I do?
  • ...I believe someone I love is being battered or abused, what can I do?

Written from a biblical perspective by a formerly battered Christian wife,  Woman Submit! answers these questions and more.

What People Are Saying About Woman Submit!


I passed your book along to a friend with six children and presently has restraining orders in place against her husband. She loves your book, and I think for the first time actually got a real picture of an abused woman through a Christian view that was relevant to her.

Andersen presents the victim and the survivor with a great path to get out of their situation and how to begin the healing process afterwards by looking to God and Jesus. Reading her story and struggle, that is interjected throughout the book, helps you feel that you are not alone.
