  1. If you want a book that talks about Christ honoring relationships with the opposite gender but don t want extreme patriarchal views intertwinedn t read this book It had some good ideas Young men and women can and should communicate and build each other up in the Lord This I agree with However, I disagree with the extreme views of the authors as far as their male dominance views go Basically, women are not complete without men and vica versa I agree that we need each other, but I do not believe w [...]

  2. It can be really hard to review a book that changed your life Let me try anyway.When I first read It s Not That Complicated I d already read a whole bunch of other books for young women about guy girl relationships Most of those seemed to focus on handling emotions, keeping pure, keeping busy, and using your single years to deepen your relationship with God It s Not That Complicated is about all these things But it s also about far, far .I read it It was convicting It was encouraging It was funn [...]

  4. Of all the relationship oriented books, blog posts, and Christian magazine articles that I have read, none have been as Biblically solid or as helpful as this book Were I to go through this book with a highlighter, the entire thing would be neon yellow.This is a book from which all Christian girls can benefit Unlike some materials I have read, this does not focus only on specific behaviors that should be avoided or a few things that you should do to be pure Instead, it effectively deals with the [...]

  5. It s Not That Complicated by Anna Sofia Botkind her sister, Elizabeth I think is a book worth reading Yes, there were a few little things I didn t quite know what to think about, such as the shy, timid girls needing to step up and start spurring on the guys toward Christ Yes, spurring others on toward Christ is what we re made to do, but there are little things like, make sure that guy doesn t think you like him because you re paying so much attenion and stuff And there were a few places where i [...]

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the easy, relaxed manner in which the authors presented truth Anna Sofia Botkin Elizabeth Botkin have provided single girls of all ages with practical advice and Godly counsel that could honestly revolutionize our society and culture if only those same single girls would accept this advice and counsel with a heart that is open to following God s correct order and plan.An excellent, thorough, and even lighthearted read

  7. This is a must read for any girl The Botkin sisters explain how Christian single girls can have healthy friendships with fellow Christian single men By the end you realize it really isn t that complicated.

  8. The Botkin daughters, unmarried and in their mid 20s, write to young ladies on how to relate to guys I haven t read their prior work, like Return of the Daughters and So Much More, judging the concept touted in the marketing material to be extra Biblical But I gave It s Not that Complicated a try, and was pleasantly surprised.Girls tend to have unrealistic expectations about boys They think that every boy will converse like a pro They set up an idealized gold standard Just like guys expect girls [...]

  9.

  10. I have had the opportunity to listen to Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin speak multiple times I ve read So Much More and listened to their audios All the time, I decided that I couldn t appreciate their message because the girls seemed so unreachable They seemed so mature and serious It seemed like they weren t smiling in every picture that I saw of them This mind set and view of these girls went on for years with me.Then, early on this year, I listened to their message on Adventurous Femininity [...]

  11. Yikes, this was good Equally convicting for young Christian women who see no problem in wasting their lives on serial flirtshipsd their super good girl sisters who are riding to hell in a hope chest the authors words, not mine Blistering humor, solid exegesis, humble personal testimony, and an unwavering conviction that applying the lordship of Christ will mean real, redeemed, deeply loving and unafraid relationships between people of all types Loved the appendix in which their father had some s [...]

  12. This book was both edifying and a joy to read The Botkin sisters did an excellent job referencing and using the Scriptures as our ultimate guide concerning this subject I found chapters 10, 11, and 13 to contain some of the best and most relevant information concerning guy girl relationships, and there is much in them that we need to lay to heart.

  13. This was an amazing, helpful, insightful book It helped me view guys and how I treat them in a very different way I would definitely recommend this to any girl 12 This is an amazing book

  14. This is the second and than likely not the last time I ve read this book I had previously read this book in December of 2011 but wanted to re read it again since it was that good and I wanted to go through it slowly to get the full benefits of the rich wisdom and inspiration found in it s pages Let me start by telling you that this book is amazing You cannot go wrong by reading it There is such wisdom that the Botkin ladies share Anna Sofia and Elizabeth bring things to the table that are norma [...]

  15. My friend sat down across the table from me at a local restaurant We exchanged a few pleasantries before I broached the subject that had prompted the day s lunch meeting How is the situation with your guy friend going She looked at me, raised her eyebrows, and began, Well s complicated My mind immediately drifted to the ingeniously titled new book by sisters Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin It s Not That Complicated I hadn t read the book yet, but by the end of our lengthy conversation one of man [...]

  16. It s not that complicated, but that doesn t mean it wasn t convicting Excellent, insightful, and often humorous analysis of the subject of young adult relationships among the Church While written to girls, I think there is much guys can glean out of this book as well, especially if you re like me and have no sisters and don t have a great grasp of the feminine psyche.The main lesson I identified in this book is this having healthy relationships with young adult members of the opposite gender isn [...]

  17. This book helped me to understand myself better and the way I look at other s and mostly young men The Lord has given us strict guidance on these matters and we are prone to skim over His words and commandments They talk about being content with the life the Lord has given us right now in our fathers homes, and not dreaming and waiting for Prince Charming to come We as women look at men sometimes as not a person or individual but as a hunk of meat to win We as daughters and sister need to love [...]

  18. In a humorous yet thought provoking fashion, the Botkin sisters explore the Boy Problem in depth beginning with it s ultimate roots and then branching out to cover some of the most common outworkings that trouble so many multitudes of girls They challenge the reader to consider her own heart, motives, and standing before God before being so quick to shift all the blame on the guys Complete with witty real life examples as well as first hand testimonies from several young men, this book beautiful [...]

  19. A multiple read The Botkin sisters give a clear, biblical analysis of girl guy relationships, address common problems that girls have in navigating and understanding such relationships, and so much They write in a sisterly tone as friends who have been in your shoes and who understand what you are dealing with I would recommend this book to any young lady, and I would give it to my sons to read as well upon reading it from cover to cover again Yeah Read it Just read it

  20. The book offers some great advice on how to handle relationships with guys in a godly way However there are somethings that I disagree with and somethings are also vague For instance that God made men as leaders, and the women s role is to aid them Oh please, many women are made to be leaders, too Don t let women discouraged that they can t lead, because they can But other than that, the book was a good read.

  21. My Dad wants me to write a book report on this, so I will be posting that as my review as soon as I get it written.

  22. This is a really awesome book I think every girl needs to read it I wish it would have been written years earlier so I could have read it younger

  23. very practical, challenging, humorous and helpful book it really helped my perspective on guys and how to act around them You won t come away from this book without personal growth

  24. I would recommend this book to every Christian woman or girl Mothers you and your daughters need to know what this book has to say this book grabbed me and shook me upside down and told me what I was doing wrong in my relationship with my brother and father let alone the guys in the neighborhood I am so glad that I read this book and hope that every one of my sisters and sisters in Christ read this book there are no regrets in reading this book except one and that is that I didn t read it sooner [...]

  25. This book was absolutely excellent.I must admit, it took me forever to finish But that was my own fault i kept getting too busy to read and my life was complicated at the time i started reading this And this book gives so much to think about I didn t feel capable of even holding it in my circumstances.This is a very convicting book, and i was a bit afraid of dealing with that Anyway, though this book is filled with wisdom I feel like Anna Sophia and Elizabeth covered basically everything regardi [...]

  26. I an not a feminist in ANY way, but I still had some issues with some of the statements they includedabout men being our destiny , and that we would be complete when we were complementing a man As a Christian single young woman, I thought that this would be an immensely practical read In actuality, I found myself gleaning insight pretty much ONLY from the chapter on how to love and treat our siblings brothers and the chapter on killing crushes and valuing emotional purity At one point, the siste [...]

  27. It s Not That Complicated, the second book by Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin, daughters of Geoffrey and Victoria Botkin, challenges modern thinking in regards to relationships between the sexes Written by girls, for girls , Anna Sofia and Elizabeth share the wisdom they have gleaned through their single years The Lord has given them a unique insight for this day in age and through His Word, the shepherding of their parents, their own experiences and the experiences of their five brothers they o [...]

  28. This book is like a ray of light in the dark, confusing world of cross gender relationships I would encourage any young woman to read this book, especially if you feel confused about communication with the opposite sex and how to have meaningful guy girl friendships without them spiraling into the quasi romances so popular today This book doesn t give you tips on how to be cuter, popular, or guy savvy it deals with heart issues For me, it was like a light bulb finally flipped on For instance I [...]

  29. I can t believe how long it s taken me to read this book It wasn t because I didn t like it, because I loved it, but because there is so much to digest I starting reading it at the perfect time, since I was just learning how to walk closer to God and hungry to learn what my relationship with boys was supposed to be Every couple of chapters, I had to stop to really think about what I had just read This book is one of the best books for teenage girls, like me, to read I loved how Anna and Elizabet [...]
