My review of the book For Young Men Only:  Wow.  I wish I had this book when I was young and was trying to learn about girls.  I am 23 years old and I have been married for about a year and a half now and I learnt a lot from this book.  What I love about it is that it is from girls.  The content came from girls not guys!  The authors interviewed girls and in the book they say what they want most in a guy.  I think if you are a young man then you should read this book.  If you are a youth pastor, parent or teacher, you need to have your guys read this.  The great thing is that there is one out there for girls too.  It is called For Young Women Only.  I am planning on using these two books for a series that I plan on doing in February.  Check out the book for yourself www.foryoungmenonly.com

 

Book Summary:

The best-selling ONLY series returns with a one-of-a-kind guide for teen guys on how to figure out girls

Drawing on a fresh national survey of 600 teen girls, as well as hundreds of personal interviews, For Young Men Only reveals the real truth about what teenage girls think, what they want, and how average teen guys can build healthy friendships with high quality girls. Full of surprising revelations and practical advice, For Young Men Only delivers help straight from the girls themselves in a fun, easy-to-read, easy-to-talk about format.

Warm, witty, and honest, authors Jeff Feldhahn and Eric Rice tell plenty of personal stories and draw on solid biblical principles to guide young guys through the often daunting world of the opposite sex. Their goal is to help teen guys build self-confidence and understanding, and show them how to pursue a relationship with a girl while giving her the respect and protection she deserves.

Busy Life…

Life has been crazy!  Good crazy though.  

Here is what has been going down…

1.  Been in a series in youth group called Wii > Mii.  Very cool series.  I was able to share some things about how the church needs to come together and team up with Christ and not try to live life alone.  I really liked the series a lot.  I am working on putting it online to be an open source so other leaders can use it. 

2.  I have started to try to get out of the office more.  I hate the church office.  I like to be around people so I have tried to at least once a week go and hang out at a place and make that my office.  

3.  Last monday Hannah and I lead our foster daughter to Christ!  It was awesome.  She asked God to come and live in her heart.  Now I see why God brought her to us.  Through our love she was about to see the father’s love for her.  Now she is broken for her family and we are praying for them every night so that they will come to know Jesus and he can live in their hearts.  This is awesome stuff!!!

4.  Starting a new series up called “Fight Night” for the youth group on Sunday nights.  It is going to rock.  I am using key fights in the Bible to relate with the things that we battle with in our everyday lives.  It should be a great series.  More of a guy’s series but the ladies will be able to relate too.

5.  We are running 18 people on Sunday nights now!  We have seen 4 new faces in the past couple of weeks and they are excited and want to come back.  This is awesome to see.  I have been praying for this for a year now.  I fasted for this and we are seeing growth now.  Hannah and the children are too.  Fasting does allow God to do some awesome stuff.  Now the prayer is that they will live for Christ and grow in him.

6.  Hannah and I do a good job with our money.  I have always been a saver.  Now we are trying to save even more.  Not so we can be rich but so that we can give more.  We also have dreams and those dreams have to be funded.  

7.  I am reading a lot now.  I have been asked several times to do book reviews and I am currently reviewing the new book that hasn’t come out yet called “For Young Men Only”.  It is good stuff.  I wish I could have read it when I was in high school.

8.  I am working on possibly going to IWU for my masters.   They have an online masters program that I am looking into.  I hope to start it soon.  We will just have to see.  

Life has been busy but man I love it.  There is never a boring day!  I like to be busy doing things that I love!
