This book was certainly a very pleasant surprise! I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. This was such a quick, but powerful read, and Leslie writes truth-sometimes bluntly, but in a refreshing, non-judgemental way. Yay! My kind of reading.
I was so impacted by her thoughts on masculinity, gender roles, modesty standards, purity,ect. She's just such a great, wise author!
Another tiny thing I liked was how many quotes she included in here. Quotes from godly young men, magazine articles, young women....
Really, any Christian girl should read this, and I even read some parts out loud to my dad too! Any age or stage in life, you COULD benefit from this.
I honestly don't have any negative thoughts to say about this book. I agreed with everything Leslie presented, all her points. (To my knowledge, all were spot on with Scripture.)
I think any girl from probably around 13 could read this, or with a parent as young as 10 or 11.
Now that I've got my thoughts out of the way, I'm gonna share some of my favorite quotes!
-"As set-apart young women, we are called to reflect His lily-white, radiant beauty and not a hollow sex-appeal."
-"If you give Him the pen and allow Him to script your story, you don't need to strive or manipulate to make the romance happen."
-"Anything physical that you save for marriage will only be more beautiful and fulfilling as time goes on. Anything that you experience beforehand will eventually lose its luster.
-"When a guy shows interest, the first thing to do is spend ample amount of time in prayer and godly counsel."
AND last one: "A man who is truly worth his salt knows that you are worth the wait and won't put pressure on you to make a quick decision."
Well, that's a wrap! I hope this review peaked your interest for diving into this wonderfully accurate and timely book!
This maybe an ok book, but I was definitely turned off by the author's pot-shots at John Eldredge. I'm mean you have to be kidding me to say that John Elderedge has a mediocre view of marriage and fighting for his family! I don't think I've ever heard anyone who speaks and writes more on fighting for women!
What I love about this book is that it is honest and upfront, you can give it to your teenage daughter or you can go through it with them (as I plan to do). I love the way the point she is trying to make is that, who are you trying to impress? The kind of Godly man that you will actually want to marry will be more impressed by your passionate relationship with God than he will be by a short skirt. Just the kind of thing I want my daughters knowing!
If you're a single woman who has given up on finding the right guy - Leslie Ludy has some powerful advice for you in her newest book: Answering the Guy Questions - The Set Apart Girl's Guide To Relating To The Opposite Sex.Drawing from her own personal experience and the stories of young men and women who are tired of the oversexed dating scene, Leslie exposes the modern myths of today's critical relationship issues and offers a fresh, Biblical perspective on finding a mate.Her first piece of advice? Put first things first! Have a Christ consumed heart and put Jesus Christ far above guys. Leslie writes that when you become consumed with Jesus Christ, dealing with guys becomes far less confusing.This book is a fantastic "eye-opener" for today's young women who might be confused by what they long for in a man and what they see in the natural. Leslie exposes counterfeit manhood and shows young women the differences between the way the majority of modern guys are and the way God wants them to be.Leslie teaches her readers that God created women to be cherished and although a large number of Christian men are not the valiant warriors God desires for them to be, women should not lose heart or give up their dream of marrying a godly man.In Chapter Three, "Unlocking Your Feminine Power", readers are encouraged to influence the men in their lives towards strength and godly character. Leslie shows how arrogant, nagging, seductive femininity only fuels the problems that men are facing and instructs her readers how to apply God's standards in their lives, which in turn transforms their relationships.Leslie stresses purity and accountability as you enter into a relationship and offers a "code of conduct" chapter to help you set up some basic guidelines for maintaining a God honoring relationship with the opposite sex.
