What is He Thinking by Rebecca St. James (& a giveaway!)

I have a 17-year-old daughter. At 17, I was dreaming of Mr. Right and thinking a lot about my future and marriage, etc.  In many ways, that seems like only yesterday; so it’s very hard to believe that I have a daughter who is getting ready to graduate and, eventually, leave home. While she is much less intent on finding Mr. Right than I was, I do know that her future plans include her hopes for marriage and a family.  So, when I heard about this new book by Rebecca St. James, I thought I would be a good one to present to Ashley . . .

whitIn WHAT IS HE THINKING??, Rebecca interviews a range of men from high-profile types to the guys next door, men that every woman can relate to. Although the interviews focus on single guys ages 20-35, Rebecca also includes words of wisdom from older mentors she respects who have been successfully married for years, people like her dad, life coach, and pastor.

The men share their thoughts on topics like how women can respect themselves and the men in their lives, modesty, purity, taking it slow, friendship, letting guys lead, and more. This book gives them the floor to say what they would really like women to know.
The men respond candidly to questions such as:

  • What is the most attractive quality to you in a woman?
  • Is modesty truly attractive?
  • Is neediness a turn-off?
  • What do you find beautiful?
  • How can we be dependent on God for our identity, not on you?
  • How can we help you with boundaries physically?
Rebecca also discusses her own dating life, speaking openly about the single life, her struggle with loneliness, and her hope for the future. She challenges women to see the men in their lives as brothers in Christ and to trust God with their dating lives.

In January 2008, she was named Favorite Female Artist in Contemporary Christian Music by readers of CCM Magazine for the seventh consecutive year. Rebecca also won Best Female Artist of 2007 from fifth consecutive year to be given this honor. She's been involved in several film productions and voiced the character of Hope the Angel in VeggieTales' bestselling DVD production The Easter Carol.

I haven’t had a chance to read this book in its entirety, but what I have read has been very interesting, and definitely something that I’ll be passing on to Ashley to read.  I think sometimes girls think they know what a guys are looking for, but they are very mistaken. This  book sheds a lot of light on it – and I think girls will be surprised!

I visited Rebecca's website and learned that she was in the movie "Sarah's Choice".

I watched "Wait for Me" and Rebecca's You Tube channel. It just reminded me of how I prayed for my husband to be from the time I was 12. He is 6 years older than me, and it amazes me that I was praying for him when he was zipping back and forth on the interstate between home and college. Thankfully God kept him safe.
