I really appreciated Andy's honesty and his assessment of the different mindsets of men and women and how culture and the world can lead us astray. This book taught me to examine myself and my patterns of behavior and motivated me to exchange bad choices for biblical ones, as it pertains to relationships. I highly recommend this book!
But, Stu did a great job. The book was wonderful and full of great info. It really made me think. Even if u don't think u can commit to the one year plan, it's an amazing learning tool. As a mom, it also gave me some great advice to pass on. Things I wish I was told, and things I wish someone would have told the boys I had dated. And if u don't like it, as Andy wrote himself, there's always ebay lol.
awesome book will read over again
this is a must for anyone who is single newly single or going through a divorce and is interested in entering the dating arena this all makes sense we need to get to know who we are and what we need to change in our lives before we get into a new relationship and it's all based on what the Lord wants for us and I'm sure this can't get any better than that
As someone new to Christianity I was unsure about the area about sex and never fully understood the wait until marriage part. Andy did a great job explaining the reasoning of why you should wait without being condeming or making me feel awful. He sounded more of a concerned father who was giving his daughter advice about how to have a great intimate relationship. Be the person you want to date!! I also liked the narrator...he had a youthful pep to his voice!!
Narrator was good. Book content was encouraging and challenging. I am encouraged to become a better woman. I didn't expect to enjoy this book but I am glad that I finished it. Looking forward to my year of change!
Andy, writes simply and powerfully. This book provides insights to love, sex, and dating that isn't usually thought about: physical, psychological and physiological. Andy provides challenging yet simple and helpful action steps towards a better future.
I digged into the first few chapters of this book and was amazed it was written by a pastor. The introduction and first chapter made no reference to Christ.
I've never read such a book which I felt so angered by. It's misleading and in many ways, just wrong.
Don't buy this book.
