Sexual Purity & Submission for the Passionate Woman
Having been married twice, Joanna candidly reveals a stark contrast between her two marriages, as well as the impact of her choices through three decades of being burned—and nearly destroyed—by the desire of the flesh. In hopes to inspire passionate women to godly living, Joanna shares practical application from the difficult lessons learned within an intense five-year refining period between marriages and an honest view of a landscape laid ruin by a life of sin. Written from the perspective of one fiery woman to another, readers will hear of the worth of living God’s way, the importance of dying to self, the true measure of passion in God’s eyes, and that not all flame is bad . . .
Combining biblical instruction and discipleship, Fire Women is a testimony to the powerful benefits of submitting even the most intense desires to the authority of Jesus Christ. It’s an intimate view of a woman with almost-untamable passion and the God who delivered her to live the passionate life she truly desired.
Balancing biblical accuracy, practical discipleship, and candid personal experience, Joanna Sanders gives a comprehensive package full of powerful truth. Fire Women is a must-read for any single woman wanting to honor
God and walk in victory.
—Nancy Kaser, author of CROWN: 30 Wife-Changing Lessons
This book is a must-read. It’s biblically based, informative, and practical. No one can speak to a woman like another woman, and Joanna is not afraid to tackle the hard subjects, bringing insight and wisdom into issues that matter. She speaks from experience and from a life sold out to Jesus Christ. I’m going to make sure that all my granddaughters read this book!

Although Fire Women is a book written specifically for women, its powerful underlying message is universal. We have become a culture that values self-gratification above all else. Unfortunately, this self-centeredness severely damages individuals, destroys relationships, and ultimately undermines society overall. Joanna Sanders compellingly shares her story of how God changed not only her desires but her heart and entire life, discovering the principle that surrendering our lives to Jesus gives us a far more fulfilling life than we could ever hope to find through self-seeking strategies. This superb book reminds us that God’s ways and wisdom are always best.
