Introduction
Everyone has experienced a moment when they realise the right lesson reached them in the rightway at the right time. Reading and studying Fascinating Womanhood® was such event in my life.I am convinced that many women who read the book fail to understand it or
don’t
practise it with anopen heart and mind; sadly they miss out. The purpose of this guide is to help women gain the mostfrom Fascinating Womanhood®.This guide has been written so the reader can work through it in their own time. Every woman isalready implementing some of Fascinating Womanhood so you will probably find some exerciseseasy. Others may prove a real challenge, but I urge you to try them regardless. If you feeldiscouraged then take comfort from the fact that many have dismissed aspects of FascinatingWomanhood® when first reading
it, assuming that they wouldn’t work
their marriage. In reality,these were the very lessons from which they gain the most.Authoress Mrs Helen Andelin analysed what qualities make a woman respected, loved and adored.
She didn’t demand
they suppress their personalities, opinions, desires, feelings and rights. Rather wemust learn to express ourselves through a healthy filter of femininity. The lessons should beimplemented slowly and gently so ones true nature can emerge and shine as layers of historicalgrime are dusted away. I have heard many people say Fascinating Womanhood® is hard; but itshould be gentle and kind on you and your family.If you do have issues concerning a specific concept then:1)
 
Re-read the offending chapter, each chapter contains a lot of information and some can bemissed on the first reading.2)
 
Reflect on why you feel this way.3)
 
Consider the long term results of your current behaviours, are these results making you andyour family truly happy?4)
 
Suspend your disbelief and give all of Fascinating Womanhood an honest try, even if it feelsstrange.To gain the most benefit possible from this study guide it is useful to have a special exercise book inwhich to make notes, complete written exercises and to record any positive results or feelings youhave after doing the practical assignments. As you acquire more of fascinating qualities you may findyour husband becomes more loving and you feel happier. It is wonderful to keep a note of anychanges in a journal or blog as focussing on your blessings by writing them down helps keep onemotivated.Above all remember you are personally responsible for yourself and that following the advice givenin this, or any other book or programme, is your choice and you will have to deal with anyconsequences. Before doing any exercise remember it is your decision what you do, I am notresponsible in any way for you or your life.

She placed the positive characteristics of all the heroines she studiedinto one of two categories
 –
angelic or human.Angelic characteristics include the nurturing, caring, maternal, understanding, sympathetic,empathic, supportive, religious and capable aspects of women. These bring happiness andcontentment into marriage. In his book David Copperfield, Charles Dickens invented the Angeliche
roine Agnes to act as David’s soul mate

ualities to Dora, David Copperfield’s first wife.
