Confessions of a boy-crazy girl by Paula Hendricks

Hendricks shares her story of chasing after boy after boy after boy in an honest, straight-forward manner.  She tells of how she manufactured relationships in her own mind, only to be disappointed again and again.  Hendricks encourages readers to guard their hearts by sharing her struggle in learning to guard her own heart and explains what that means for young girls.  Eventually, Hendricks tells of how she realized chasing after boys would never fill the void, by realizing that only God can fill her and meet all of her needs.

I can’t wait to share this book with every one I know with teenage girls.  Kids are pushed into relationships at ever-younger ages and girls accumulate boyfriends at unprecedented rates.  I have never heard anyone explain the concept of guarding your heart better than Hendricks does in her book.  To quote a dear friend when I told her about this book, “Where was this book when I was a teenager!”.

I don’t think this book replaces parental counsel and good role model mentors in the lives of young girls, but I do think that girls need to get this message from a lot of different sources.  I appreciate Hendricks for supporting and sharing this message!  The quote, human rejection is sometimes God’s divine intervention, is one I will remember to use in the future.

If you have a teen or pre-teen girl in your life that you care about, get this book for her.  It will help equip her for the battle to guard and protect her heart!

I received a complimentary copy from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.

    This sounds like a great book. I hope to get a copy for my teenage daughter and maybe a few extras for her to share with her friends. I agree that parents and other good role models and mentors are also important for our girls.
