Understanding Eve

(aka: Hurray for the Va-Jay-Jay)

is a celebration of womanhood. “Va-Jay-Jay” is an expression Oprah used, when she felt uncomfortable saying “vagina”. I used it for the title of this book, conscious that many women experience embarrassment when they speak about their sexuality. My hope with Understanding Eve, is that no woman will ever experience shame in regards to her sexuality. This book is simple and easy to read, and can be a resource for the rest of your life.

About the Book

This book is the first in a series of three. My goal in Understanding Eve (Hurray for the Va-Jay-Jay) is to change the worldview of women regarding their own sexuality and bodies. Whether they come from a permissive or puritanical background, I want my readers to receive or solidify a strong foundation of understanding the beauty of being a woman. Single or married, you are a sexual being. Women will be able to shout, “Hurray! I am a woman! Hurray for the Va-Jay-Jay!”

Why this book?

Why did I find myself writing this book? I found myself feeling “pregnant” with these words for a very long time. We must not be fooled. God is the author of sexuality, not Satan. We need to re-take what was stolen, and go back to what God had intended. There is true beauty to how God views sexuality. We need to re-establish sexuality as being first spiritual, then emotional, then physical, and overall, beautiful! 

What she thinks about the book...

“This is a celebratory book that is L-O-N-G overdue, and will completely transform your life, your health, your self-esteem, and your marriage relationship IF you let it. This message will also transform how you parent your own daughters (and sons), giving you the confidence to speak of issues that our own parents most likely didn’t care to touch with a ten-foot pole. 

So before you let Rachel teach you how to say, “Hurray for the Va-Jay-Jay” I’m honored to have this opportunity to say, “Hurray for Rachel Dufour!” Hurray for all that she’s invested into her own healing process... Hurray for her courage and confidence in boldly proclaiming the message that God has entrusted to her... Hurray for a wise woman who is willing to boldly go where few writers have gone before – into the sacred mystery of female sexuality and the energy that it brings into our own lives and into the lives of the men we love! 

I believe you, too, will soon be shouting, “Hurray” as you glean from Rachel’s sage advice and motherly wisdom, so put on your seatbelt and get ready for an invigorating ride! We both pray that these pages bring great enlightenment and enrichment to YOUR life and intimate relationships!”
