Hi, I’m Sheila. I’ve been married for 25 years, and happily married for 20.
In the first few years of our marriage, sex was a huge issue. He wanted it. I didn’t. I felt used. He felt unloved. But then something happened: I asked myself, “If sex is so great for so many people, and God created it to be part of marriage, what if the problem is actually that I don’t understand sex?” And that started my journey of research that led to this book. And our marriage has never been the same since.
I really struggled in this area of my marriage for years, and I know what it is to be confused, despondent, and wondering what all the fuss is about. But things have really turned around for me, and they can for you, too. And it’s my prayer that this book will be a part of the toolkit God uses to make your marriage thrive!
Sex SHOULD be a fun part of your marriage. If it’s not, please read the book. Your marriage will thank you!

That’s what sex is supposed to be!
And yet too often we think that sex is only physical–and we miss out on the amazing richness that God designed for us.
But how can we feel “emotionally intimate” during sex if we feel like sex is somehow dirty? Or if we’re embarrassed? Or if it just plain doesn’t feel that wonderful?
How can we feel “spiritually connected” when we’re awkward and we’re not really sure what to do?
That’s what this book is for! It helps clear up the misconception that sex is only physical, and shows how all three elements work together. And when there’s problems–don’t worry! Sheila shows you how to deal with them so that you can find the intimacy you long for.
Think of it as the most fun research project you’ll ever do with your husband!
What are people saying about the book?
I just got done reading this book and I loved it. The entire time I kept thinking, “I wish I had this book to read while growing up.” I was completely clueless for my honeymoon and early marriage years. After reading this book, I was able to use all of the advice to help my sexual relationship with my husband. He was thrilled!Jennifer Jennings
What I found so refreshing about this book is that it is direct, honest, and REAL. Gregoire writes in a candid way that gets to the heart of what does (or doesn’t!) happen in the marital bed, and what we as wives can do to promote happy and healthy sex lives with our husbands.Mrs. HRT
This book is a must-read for young virginal brides, but it’s even more beneficial for women like me. I’ve been married for 10 years and struggling with the idea that sex is dirty. This book has helped me to reprogram my brain and bring new life to my marriage. $10 for a book is much cheaper than a lifetime of therapy!Mum of 2
What to expect from The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex:
You’ll get hope that sex CAN be great–even if kids are hanging off of you all day.
If sex has become blah, or has never been that great (or even if you’re nervous about your upcoming wedding), Sheila will give you hope that you can experience tremendous fun but also tremendous intimacy in the bedroom with your husband.
You’ll feel like you’re chatting with a friend.
While other books on sex from a Christian standpoint are often written by men or by couples, Sheila’s chatty. And she’s a woman. And she GETS you.
You’ll get answers to all those questions you wished you could ask a friend–but were embarrassed to!
Sheila answers all those questions that every woman has, from how things are supposed to work to what to do when they don’t. Nothing is off limits!
But how does the book work?
The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex is the winner of the Grace Irwin Award for 2012 for the best book by a Canadian from a Christian worldview. It’s one of the top literary prizes in North America, and this little sex book walked away with it! The judges said: “it’s such a needed book that all wives will want to read!” Here’s how the book works:
- First understand the big picture: Why God make sex the way He did–and why He made men and women so differently!
- Next, a chapter especially for engaged women with questions about the honeymoon & the marriage (whether they’re virgins or not)
- Then, the three big areas of intimacy: Physical, Spiritual, and Emotional. All go into a great sex life! Sheila spends one chapter telling how to make things go right, and one chapter telling how to fix problems that come up for each of the three areas of sexual intimacy.
- Answers to your questions on what’s okay to do in the bedroom–and what should be avoided.
- Everything you wanted to know about what OTHER people think–the complete survey results of the research that Sheila did with 2000 women, rated their sex life, their honeymoon, and more!

What are people saying about the book?
I just finished your book “The Good Girls Guide to Great Sex” and it has totally changed my outlook on the whole subject. I cannot believe how ridiculous my views on sex were! I was not treating it as the beautiful gift that it is and was acting as if it were a chore that I was only doing as infrequently as possible to keep my husband off of me. We have been married for 7 years and have 2 beautiful daughters. I just want to thank you for your Christian insight. I am so happy. And my husband is too of course and has been every night since I finished reading your book! 🙂Relieved Blog Reader
I was looking for ways to improve my marriage and sex life. I wanted to spice things up and didn’t know where to turn. I broke down and read 50 Shades at everyone’s recommendation but that didn’t really sit well with me. I found myself googling (unknowingly) the name of your book “good girls guide to great sex.” And then I was introduced to you! I’m not quite done with the book but I’ve had so many ah-ha moments already. Today church was even better than usual!! I’m so looking forward to improving my marriage and love life in a God pleasing way! I think God helped me find you and I’m so thankful!!Thankful Google Searcher
THANK YOU. And my husband thanks you! Outside of our honeymoon and trying to conceive, our sex life has been pitiful. Less than once a week… 3 weeks wasn’t uncommon. Never allowed him to touch me. He felt guilty, because I never enjoyed it. Never had an orgasm in 5+years of marriage… until last weekend. I have an amazing friend encouraging me to enjoy my husband, but I continually made fun of her when she talked about their sexual frequency. But… boy, was she right. With her encouragement and The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex, I jumped right in. Last weekend we had sex 4 times in 48 hours and I had 4 orgasms. Can I get an amen?! I feel like a teenager again. So exciting!Finally Found Fireworks!
If you want GREAT in your marriage,
