Curious posted a topic in Lori Alexander Accountability Group's Power of the Transformed WifeOn to the inside of the book! This is where we find the first and I'm going to go out on a limb and guess the worst case of editing in the book. The page numbers are wrong on the index page. I already knew about this extremely unprofessional editing error as I had read about it. the person who sent me the book had kindly written in the proper page numbers making looking things up much easier. The editor that Lori used is supposedly highly regarded and has edited some high profile books, so I'm not sure how something so basic got by him. Lori starts the book with a note to the readers where she explains what set her on the path from rebellious wife to transformed wife. If you have read Lori's blog for any length of time this story will not be new to you. However, you may notice that a few details she shared on her blog are missing. She tells us that "a few years ago" (12 by my count, Ken says 15 in his contribution at the end of the book) she and Ken were taking a walk and Ken essentially told her he didn't know what their future would look like once all the kids were out of the house. She notes they were very different from each other and the only things they had in common were the kids various sporting/dancing activities. This is why you shouldn't marry someone you are really in love (or even like) with just because you think they will keep you in the spoiled lifestyle you have led up to that point in your life. She doesn't go into the bits about not loving Ken and not having "butterflies" about anyone ever. She next tells us that problems started on their honeymoon when her adult husband dared to eat "fake cheese spread" on Ritz crackers. Oh, the humanity! Again how do you marry someone you know so little about? Is this the first time Ken has eaten in front of Lori or did he hide his dirty junk food love from her the whole time they were dating because he knew she was a "health nut?" She goes on to lament that her feelings of discontentment were due to the fact that she and Ken never connected in a meaningful way early on in their marriage. Perhaps because she didn't really love him, but saw him as a walking ATM? Thankfully, they had children and each baby gave her more excuses to ignore Ken. YAY! After Ken told her the awful truth about their marriage she thought back to other walks when Ken would tell her all the things she was doing wrong. She hated this because she felt like Ken was trying to "fix" her. On the previous page, she notes that few things were off limits when it came to her desire to "fix" Ken and make him into the husband she thought he should be. Self-awareness - Lori is doing it all kinds of wrong Then she found Created to be His Helpmeet by Debi Pearl. On her blog, she tells us that Debi spanked her and taught her what she was doing wrong. In the book, she uses the word mentored. She saw the error of her ways and became a transformed wife. This is why she decided to write her book to help those women that have tried counseling, reading books (the jokes just write themselves) and talking to other women. It seems to me she could have just recommended people read Debi's book and saved a lot of time, but that wouldn't get Lori the attention she craves. There is no going viral just recommending someone else's old book now is there? Next up: Lori's life story!
