Freebie Friday: Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl

All this week on the blog I’ve been sharing my story from “boy-craziness to my man.” If you missed the details, ironically God used my book, Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl, to kick off my friendship with my future hubby.

So now that I’m getting married, will I be leaving the message of this book far behind?

Not on your life.

The message of Confessions will be just as relevant for me as a married woman as it was for me as a single woman.

How so?

Because married or single, my hope is still in God, not in a man. After all, as Jani Ortlund says, “Marriage is an unconditional commitment to an imperfect person.” Only God is perfect and will never disappoint me.

If I look to my future hubby (or you look to a potential boyfriend) for our worth, identity, or happiness . . . we will end up bitter, angry women. As one pastor often said, “What you idolize you will eventually demonize.”

But if we continually pursue and are satisfied in the far-surpassing treasure that Jesus Christ is, we will be able to love our guy when he’s acting wonderful . . . and when he’s being a pill.

Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl is ultimately a book about the “little g” gods (idols) we worship—and how we can move from worshiping worthless gods to worshiping the one true, living God.

Married or single, you’ll benefit from the message of this book.
