About What Is He Thinking??
 
What Is He Thinking
In 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.
 
My Thoughts: I am not single nor do I need advice on dating for myself, however, I have daughters.  Four of them.  And two of them who are beginning to think about their future.  I wanted to read this book so that I could discuss dating, love and marriage with my daughters.   I confess to being a bit frustrating by Ms. St. James writing style.  I wonder if it is just that I am happily married and have been for nearly 17 years so maybe I am out of touch with the dating world?  In any case I did discover valuable nuggets to share with my daughters and I will have my 16 year old read the book soon.  I very much appreciated the chapter on marriage mentors and Ms. St. James interview with her own father on what makes a marriage a success. 

Though I was not pleased with the style of writing, I found the book worth reading and I am pleased to offer my readers a chance to win a copy of this book for themselves. This Giveaway has ended but you can still go give Rebecca St. James some love on Facebook!

  5. I will not be participating in the give-away, but one thing I really had to learn about "what he's thinking" is to give him space.

    I think it's great to have your daughters read this. You are an amazing mom.
