About the Book

From popular Christian voices Lisa Jacobson and Phylicia Masonheimer, The Flirtation Experiment inspires you to strengthen your marriage with a fun, unexpected approach that leads to the depth, richness, and closeness you desire. 

Romance novels, Hallmark movies . . . the immense demand for romantic stories reveals a deep, unsatisfied longing that can be found in many marriages, but does it have to be that way? Is it possible that the best marriage has to offer can grow, rather than fade after you say “I do”? Lisa and Phylicia say, “Absolutely yes!” 

So what is the secret to a happy, thriving, loving marriage, where the fire of romance and close friendship do not fade? While The Flirtation Experiment includes the frisky side of marriage, it’s far more than a good romp. By degrees, each chapter takes you to a deeper place, covering themes every beautiful marriage has in common, such as covenant, healing, and hope. 

After reading The Flirtation Experiment, wives will

  • be filled with hope and encouragement for how they can make a powerful, positive change in their marriages,
  • become empowered to pursue their husbands romantically,
  • understand the Bible invites women to be proactive in their marriages,
  • be motivated to consistently love in creative ways, and
  • forge closeness and intimacy in their marriages. 

“Intentional flirting keeps a positive lightness in the atmosphere and improves our overall communication,” says Jacobson. “My light flirtations bring us closer in meaningful ways and lead to connection on a deeper level. It helps us discover true romance waiting for us in everyday situations.” 

Perfect for the wife who wants romance, passion, and the closeness that only comes from a deep heart connection but isn’t sure where to start, The Flirtation Experiment is a candid, real-life record of two Christian women from different seasons of life who discovered they could make a significant impact on their marriage relationships, one small flirtatious experiment at a time.

 My Review

The Authors Offer Useful Marriage Advice in a Down-To-Earth Way. Each author has different experiences life events guiding her through her own marriage. As each shares her experiences and thoughts regarding the Flirtation Experiment--there is literally something valuable and relatable for almost every reader. I enjoyed the honest, open, down-to-earth way the author's shared their stories and opened their lives to readers seeking something a little different and more from marriage.


The Flirtation Experiment is Heavily Christian. Much of the book focuses on the Bible and Christian thought--and women's roles in relationships. Bible references and guidance pops in often--so, if that is not what you are looking for in a book--this one may not be for you. However, if you are looking for a Bible-based book about strengthening marriages and relationships--this one should certainly be on your reading list. 


Would I Recommend The Flirtation Experiment by Lisa Jacobson and Phylicia Masonheimer? I enjoyed the ideas and tips--and the author's stories and experiences with this "experiment." It isn't a self-help book for troubled marriages--but it is a fun, relatable book with ideas to strengthen and become closer in your relationship. I haven't checked out the accompanying workbook yet--but I think it may be something to look into too! I would recommend this book to Christian women seeking to find or regain a deeper connection to their spouses.
