I was very excited to read the new book, “Guys are Waffles, Girls are Spaghetti”, from Farrel Communications.  I had heard much about the adult version of the book and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. What I found was an easy to read book that communicates what every teen girl and guy out there wants to know: “What in the world is the other sex thinking?”  I think the truths found in the book are very foundational in healthy girl/guy relationships.

As I was reading “Guys are Waffles, Girls are Spaghetti”, we were going through a student message series on Love and Dating (see here) and I continually found myself referring to chapters I had read in the book.  Finally, one night I just took it out and read a bit from a couple of chapters.  The kids ate it up and the analogy stuck.  I still hear some of them talking about waffles and spaghetti!

Chad Eastham does a tremendous job of mixing humor with the truth.  I found myself laughing out loud while re-discovering, in a fresh way, the differences between the way guys and girls operate, think, and feel. I highly recommend it to parents, youth workers, and teens alike.  Get your copy now at FarrelCommunications.com.
