    1 thought on “Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl: On Her Journey From Neediness to Freedom (True Woman)

    1. For part of homeschool with my 13 year old daughter, we read this book together and had great discussions after every chapter! What a priceless gift! Today after we completed the book, we both prayed over a few prayer requests and then all of a sudden, my daughter started praying "Help me to see that a boy's rejection is really God's protection." I was floored! Those are Paula's words from her book! Thank you for being faithful and journaling your journey so we can learn through your experiences [...]

    2. Regarding boy craziness(girl neediness), Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl follows Paula Hendricks, who struggles to break bad habits, on a Christian Journey of finding her ¨Prince.¨ For me, Confessions of a Boy Crazy Girl is a favorite because it made me realize so many movies are infiltrated with love messages that contradict my faith. For example, seeing older generation Disney Princesses makes children think children that love is just falling for a guy when they are cute or falling for a guy [...]

    3. I enjoyed reading this little book. I could totally relate with her struggles (I'm not the only one with guy trouble?!), and I appreciated her transparency. I also thought it was great how she kept pointing back to Jesus. It was a quick read for me, but there are journal prompts at the end of each chapter, so you could definitely go deeper with it. Great book, with wise advise.

    4. Review from BiblicalWomanIt isn’t easy to take an honest, vulnerable look at your dating experiences. Try publishing it for everyone to read. In Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl: On Her Journey from Neediness to Freedom, Paula Hendricks describes how her revolving door relationship with “cute, innocent crushes,” eventually became costly investments. The writing manager of Revive Our Hearts and frequent blogger on Lies Young Women Believe opens up her heart (and her journal entries) to share [...]

    5. About the Book:Sound familiar?1. You spot a cute boy (we'll call him Boy A).2. You dream about Boy A.3. You do whatever it takes to make Boy A notice you.4. Even though Boy A doesn't pursue you, you hang on to your dream of Boy A until he (a) moves to the North Pole with no access to a cell phone or computer, (b) dies and is buried or cremated, or (c) begins dating another girl.5. You mend your broken heart by hating Boy A and finding another cute boy (Boy B). You replace Boy A with Boy B and be [...]

    6. I never thought of myself as being “boy-crazy.” I remember driving around in high school with two of my best friends in the car, both of whom were screaming and giggling at boys in normal teenage girl fashion. I considered myself a little above that.And yet when it was time to come up with a name for our son, my husband and I had to cross several off the list just by virtue of the fact that I had dated guys with those names. Now, I’m not saying there were scores of names. But there were mo [...]

    7. When I was fourteen, I attended the Christian In Training (also known as CIT) camp at Bair Lake Bible Camp in Jones, MI. CIT consists mainly of classes that focus on prayer, the Bible, and service but can also expand to issues that affect young people and more specific such as womanhood. It was here that I heard Paula Hendricks, the author of this book, speak. I remember being both angry and baffled at what she had to say. Feminism is not a popular topic at Bair Lake period, and my buttons were [...]

    8. I believe this is a book every preteen girl, teen girl, young woman and their mothers should read! As crazy as it sounds I think it is appropriate for grown women who are caught in the trap of thinking they need a man to be complete and happy.A great deal of damage is done to young girls and their future relationship with their husbands by society’s and parent’s acceptance and even encouragement that being “boy crazy” is normal. There is nothing “normal” about it and I do not believe [...]

    9. When this book arrived in the mail, my daughters could hardly wait to dig into it, but I told them they couldn't read it until I'd finished it first.They didn't need to wait long. I devoured the book, and my 12-year-old did, too, once she got her hands on it (the 14-year-old is reading it now). Paula has such a transparent and engaging writing style, I felt like I was sitting right across the table from her. I could readily relate to many of the personal anecdotes she shared.Although it’s been [...]

    10. Confessions of a Boy-Crazy girl is not a typical Young adult book as the title might suggest its a hardcore christian book about Paula's faith and God's everlasting Grace.Paula one after the other is tempted to lust behind her parents back ,find approval & love in Mike ,Jack, Edward ,Jim and countless of other boys only to find disappointment,rejection and heartbreak .She goes through dozens of heartbreaking experiences to eventually let God take over the steering wheel of her life and let H [...]

    11. This was an inspiring book all together. I could hardly wait for the book to arrive and then when it did, my 14 year old daughter snagged it before I got a chance to look at it. Although its been a few years (or maybe more), I remember being that same boy-crazed girl who could not get enough of what ever boy I was madly crushing on. Waiting to see him, stealing glances, spending time with him, brushing against him “accidentally”, etc. Basically desperate to get him to notice me, desire me an [...]

    12. Okay, I’m pretty sure Paula must have stolen my journals and used them in her book. Totally kidding :) But her thoughts so resonated with me and what I was like most of my life until a few years ago.This book is written for a teen girl, but honestly, I think any woman who struggles with being obsessed with wanting a man should read this. Seriously. I needed this book desperately only a few years ago and even today it is a great reminder for me to keep my mind on Christ and not on myself, my ap [...]

    13. This was a interesting spin and take on how to become a independent person and take dating as it is a day at a time.There are parts that are hysterical and we all can relate to like the middle school crushes. There are parts that will have you laugh so hard you will cry and there are parts where you see extremes.It’s funny because she goes to extremes. She is all about the boy and dating and how it never works and it makes her sad and than she goes to the extreme of God being the only way to f [...]

    14. I was impressed with how the Word of God was woven, skillfully and appropriately (as in her arguments matched and built from her scripture - sadly not a small or common feat in modern Christian nonfiction), throughout this account - it seemed both truthful and well done, as well as impactful and full of the gospel. Despite being outside the target audience and despite the title, I found this to be a well written and aimed discussion on some of the ways we create our own idols in the midst of see [...]

    15. This is the perfect reading for teen girls or young women who are boy-crazy and like to read journals.Here you’ll find great advises, funny quiz games, good questions to ask yourself and much more.I've enjoyed reading Paula’s confessions and I find it an entertaining book.Here are some quotes I like:“Like it or not, our relationship with God is shaped by our relationship with our dad, and our relationship with God and our dad shapes our interactions with guys.”“boy craziness is really [...]

    16. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'm usually not a reader of nonfiction, but Paula's stories definitely made it better than just a regular nonfiction book. It also showed that her wisdom came from real stuff, that she wasn't just spouting untested ideas. I really loved that. When I first started it, I thought some of the things said were a bit harsh but as I thought about it more, I realized they were totally correct. It was a good reality check. It was a little on the short side and I was a bit [...]

    17. This book is like a cherished letter from your big sis; lovingly and vulnerably sharing her diary with you, in order to help you avoid similar heartbreak, "When [we] tried to force our fairy tales, we were acting more like orphans than adopted daughters of God (see Romans 8:14-17). We mistakenly thought we had to fend for ourselves. Can you believe it- princesses of the King acting like poor beggars?" This spoke straight to my heart, as God often reveals that I act like an orphanotecting myself, [...]

    18. I received this book through .This book seemed to be written for a much younger audience than I was expecting, but it was still an effective tool for self-reflection. One problem I had with the book was the author's isolationist attitude about Christianity. She encourages readers to cut out as much temptation from their lives as possible, which is not a bad thing, but she takes this to the extreme, stating that one of the reasons why she chooses not to date one man is because he has non-Christia [...]

    19. Paula is painfully straight forward about the roller coaster her boy-craziness kept her on. Starting at age 10, she began craving male attention. Her story doesn't have the fairy tale ending we might expect. She hasn't found an earthy prince charming. She has found a deeper relationship with the Lover of Her Soul, but it was a long road. I admire Paula's openness and honesty about her struggles. Her concern for girls is evident; she genuinely wants to spare them from making the mistakes she made [...]

    20. Great christian book, mainly for young single women/teens who want to get a godly perspective on boys and dating. But I think it's also great for older single women and married women because throughout it, you are reminded, that god should be your first priority. Paula Hendricks is a great writer, very entertaining and easy to read. She is very honest, which I admire.There aren't any How Tos in this book. Paula doesn't say you should behave like this when you're with a boy. Instead she fixes the [...]

    21. Great book!Paula lays out the gospel story clearly in the first chapter, using it as the cornerstone of all the chapters to follow. She uses analogies to explain would-be confusing points, as well.Keep your Bible within arm's reach as you're reading this book; Paula uses many references in her writing.Her translucency and real-ness encourages me! She's a very friendly and riveting author, and it's obvious that she loves teen girls and believes in what she's writing. This book has really helped m [...]

    22. i got this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review NOT READ THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE NOT RELIGIOUS!!!!!this book to me really has nothing to do with being boy crazy. This book is about a girl who has massive "DADDY" issues, and how praying and reading the bible helped heren she went on and on about girls should have diary entries, and if you think about boys or talk about boys it is a sin and you need to prayl in all, this 160 page book just about the bible and how praying will help [...]

    23. I did not finish this book as it was not for me. I am not a heavily religious person and felt the synopsis of this book was a little deceiving to a degree. This book should have been listed under YA, religion, Christianity, but listing it under YA gives it the impression (Along with the synopsis that the religious aspects aren't key factors).If you are not religious, this book is not for you.

    24. I was looking for something of a light YA to read and based on the synopsis I thought this would be a perfect fit. I also liked the cover on this one. Really nice! The synopsis is pretty misleading. PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE NOT RELIGIOUS OR EVEN OPEN TO THE IDEA OF THIS BEING MORE RELIGIOUS THAN YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH. It simply wasn't for me right now. ARC was provided by the publisher via Netgalley.

    25. As a girl in a relationship, I could fully relate to this book. I love the fact that it is able to connect to girls on a good basis. Every teenage girl should read this once they turn 11. This is a great empowering book to help young girls break the mold society is trying to put them in. Received as an ARC.

    26. I read this book over the weekend and I loved it! Oh, how I wish I had a copy of this when I was a teenager but I probably wouldn't have read it then, honestly. I'm 34 now and still a work in progress but this book was so refreshing and eye opening for me. Thank you, Paula Hendricks, for sharing your testimony with us all!

    27. Maybe it was just the timing, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I could heavily relate to her stories. My only complaint is that I wanted to hear more stories about her life! I felt like she could've elaborated a little more. But other than that, I appreciate how down-to-earth she seems. It was a good reminder that the love story I've always longed for is found in Christ.

    28. I received this book through GoodReadsA decent book, especially if you are religious. If you're not, you're going to find this book too preachy. I wish I would've had a book like this when I was younger. She shares a great testimony.

    29. GIVEAWAY:I was not aware that this book was religious in nature. I was thinking it was a cute tween, teen fiction book but it was actually written for religious intentions, which I was not interested in.
