This was such a great and interesting read for me. I was presently surprised by how much I liked it and came out with a new understanding for how the male mind works. :P
Okay, it's a fact. God made guys and girls different in more ways than just the physical.
But how different could we really be? After all, we are all made in His image, right? Well, yes, but let’s just say that guys and girls view the world in such different ways, that it’s a miracle we communicate at all. What’s worse is that girls this age often think they know what makes guys tick. That couldn’t be more wrong!
Chad Eastham tells it like it is . . . to girls . . . from a guy’s perspective. As a popular presenter at Revolve conferences, he is known for his ability to speak truth and to give girls clearer perspective about guys and themselves as well as understand their own value. Chad explains, “You are incredibly valuable and worthy simply because God created you.”
I know many males... Theres my brother, dad, classmates, and all the other people I see in my day. Sometimes they do stuff that gets me really aggitated.
This was such an interesting read for me. I have a great guy friend, and know some males really well, and of course theres my classmates who are guys, and my brother and dad, and sometimes things they say or do annoy me and I don't understand why they do it! Sometimes it does get my agitated, but I'm a teenage girl! What else do you expect. There is a male teacher at my school who always loosens me up about it, and we laugh when I get mad.. but man somethings they can do make you mad!!
This is a girl read. For the first part it talked about girls and how we think. Then it moved on to boys and how they think. Some were similar some were not! It gave good tips, and advice to make sure you have healthy relationships when you are older. It had great review/ discussion questions at the end, so it was great to answer certain things that you learned in you're own way.
It answered some of the most awkward questions possible too:P It was a great book, where it answered tons of good questions.
Chad Eastham had a hard time growing up. He mentioned that he didn't have that role model as a teenager, and he wanted to make sure some did. Its a hilarious read! I LOVED it!
Here are some of my favorites quotes, and sayings from the book:
"One day the guy gets down on one knee with a ring and asks you to marry him, very similar to the decision to finally purchase the car of his dreams. Then he stands at the altar and promises to protect the car, drive it nicely in the rain or shine, and never leave it outside in the cold to rust. I mean, he takes his marriage vows. Bottom line, he commits to something he now values remarkably."
"Deciding yes or no is one of those privileges that girls get. If I were a girl I would probably not throw that one away."
"Keep your head up and keep going forward. But know this. You do belong! You are valuable! I mean that with all my heart."
*I will be probably reading more of his books, I loved it that much!!*
