On the Other Side of the Garden was first printed in 1992 after fifteen years of Bible study and prayer. It quickly became a women’s Bible study favorite and has encouraged thousands of women to look to God for their purpose in life. This book is for women who want to live their lives to the glory of God, even if their husbands never do what they are supposed to with their lives. This newly revised second edition reveals how to understand God’s purpose for womanhood; distinguish submission from blind obedience; communicate Biblically with a husband; deal with a passive, overbearing, or unspiritual man; handle disappointments and irritations in marriage; and turn the frustrations of marriage into joy.
Turn the frustrations of marriage into joy with the Logos Bible Software edition of On the Other Side of the Garden. All Scripture passages are linked to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of "womanhood" or "practical living."

Praise for the Print Edition
Every Christian wife and wife-to-be should read this book! The challenges of living a Christ-centered life in today's feminist society are addressed truthfully in an atmosphere of experience and humor. But this book is for the woman who truly desires to live her life in obedience to her Savior. If you are searching for a closer walk with your Lord and are willing to soften your heart before Him, you will not believe the blessings you will receive! This is a message that is sorely lacking in today's church and one that is greatly needed. See what God can do with your marriage, and enjoy the unparalleled blessings of growing old with your husband.
I found this book challenging. Many times, as I considered the author’s thoughts and experiences, I realized that much of my view of myself as a woman needed to be challenged. My perception of marriage has been shaped and molded by outside influences, not by the Bible. As a Christian, I needed to be shaken up. Virginia Fugate presents this in a way that helps you take a hard look at where you stand and why you're here. I appreciate her presentation and that she has spent much of her adult life working to develop her walk as a woman who truly wants to live as God created her to.
