as a parent of a teenaged girl, this book became the best thing for me to use to guide her into a healthy relationship and show her the standards in which she should follow. i read it and then bought her a copy and we talked about it and i just prayed that it would soak into her heart.
This book was awesome! As an older couple dating we were looking for something to help us learn to date correctly in order to glorify God and not fall into the same fragmented relationships that end in hurt and disappointment. This book was so helpful in keeping the main thing the main thing. Learning how to have friendship, fellowship and romance equally balanced is the key. Very challenging and inspiring!
A long story follows these books between me and a friend. I recommended "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" to him and he recommended "Boy Meets Girl" to me. When I read it, I was amazed. It was the best book about relationships that I've ever read, aside from "I Kissed Dating Goodbye." For my birthday, my friend got me this book so now I have it for my own. I think that every young person should read it, it really shows you how to protect and sincerly and purly love your brothers and sisters in Christ, while waiting for that special person. And then to know what to do when that special someone walks into your life, when you least expect it. I would recommend this book to anyone!!
I bought "I kissed dating goodbye" for my teenage daughters then a few years later I found a copy of "Boy meets girl" at the Goodwill store. I never look at the used books but somehow zero'd in on the little paperback copy.
I read this book through in one night...crying throughout most of it. I kept saying to myself and God, "I want to be loved (& sought after) like that". Joshua does an excellent job portraying the reality of relationships and the various consequences which come from decisions we make.
Give this to your kids, youth pastors, use these 2 books to approach dating and relationships with your kids, and adult singles of all ages read this book! It will make you visualize a love & relationship as God intended.
I read this book after going through an interesting process with the Lord, and I became so convicted and repented of so many seemingly innocent ways i treated women. This is definitely a must read for all guys and girls pursuing marriage (in a God honoring way). If you care about honoring Jesus in all you do-get this puppy. It is well worth the effort to get yourself and your friends some copies. Lord bless u all.
