There are so many girls out there who need something real, and this book gives them a drastically imbalanced view of life and relationships.
Don't give this book for your daughters, teach them the principles of the word of God and raise them to be happy, loving daughters that make a difference in the world. To keep the cloistered at home isn't healthy. I just feel that she is confused on matters of life and love. I read this book several times before coming to these conclusions. View all 6 comments. Jul 09, Annemarie Donahue rated it did not like it Shelves: religious , philosophy , children-s-lit. I wanted to put no stars. Granted, I'm a married woman, who doesn't have to wait for Prince Charming because that's ridiculous, so this book isn't for me, however, this book really isn't for anyone living in this century.
I mean, really? Is this what we teach girls? I'd rather my daughter understand sex, as the power responsibility and wonderful activity it should always be. But this was just silly. Get into your library and give your daughters a book on physics, or the I wanted to put no stars. Get into your library and give your daughters a book on physics, or the Dangerous Book for Boys it goes both ways, meh or anything, but stop teaching her that sexual purity is an advantage to her someone Feb 16, Ann Withers rated it really liked it.
I really like this book. However, there is something that really grates on my nerves. This book does not acknowledge that women can and should have a career. In fact, it goes so far to say that women should not have a career pg If God brings a man into their life they will have discussions to ascertain what plans are in the future.
A husband DOES have the authority to ask a women to quit her job, generally speaking. However, again I say that it is ridiculous to say that a Christian woman should not have a career. Many women, including myself, cannot live with their parents until some mystical magical prince comes along. She works. She buys food. But guess what SMH, guys.

When I saw that they sold it at the Creation Museum, I naturally picked up a copy, but I was thinking "I'm twenty, I've pretty much defined my ideas on relationships. I doubt I really need this. Because while it's true that I already knew a lot that was in the book, I did need it and I still managed to get a lot out of it. Now, I've come across things in the Bright Lights handouts that indicate the Mallys seem to lean a bit towards legalism, but I didn't come across much if anything in this book that seemed overly legalistic.
At least, nothing I hadn't already read in Bright Lights materials. Honestly, the thing I most disagreed with was the implication in the bonus material that online friendships are fake. Because while you absolutely have to be super careful, it is possible to make good friends online. It's like a modern version of a pen pal. Essentially, what the book is about is staying truly pure and trusting God in relationships. It seems like basic stuff, but unfortunately, it's not really very common.
I don't want to rehash the entire book, you need to read it for yourself, but I want to touch on the chapters that stood out to me the most. Guard Your Heart I honestly tend to have the opposite problem from what this chapter is really written to help you with. I tend more to hide from guys than to be overly familiar with them. But whether you're boy crazy or anti boy, this chapter helps.
It talks about how to have friendships with guys without becoming emotionally attached in a romantic way. Things like keeping the friendship casual and focusing on the other person, not yourself.
It's not bad to be friends with guys, but you absolutely need to protect your heart and keep it for the right one. Could He Be The One? Despite being a girl who was never interested in guys and never really developed any crushes, I do want to get married someday, and I want to know How do you know if he's the one?
Unfortunately, there's no hard and fast rule, and every situation is different. What this chapter does do is give you an idea of essential qualifications to look for in a spouse. Things like the essentials of marrying a strong Christian, and things like considering if your life missions are the same.
But a bigger thing is: Are YOU ready for marriage? And if not, what things do you need to work on to get there? Because you can't expect a guy to be ready to be your husband if you aren't making yourself ready to be a wife. When God Says Wait This really stuck out to me because, well, I'm not in a relationship, don't see the possibility of one anytime soon, and I know I'm not really ready for one anyway. God is saying wait.
