Help for Boy-Crazy Girls

While I wouldn't describe my 10-year-old daughter as "boy-crazy," I know many moms with daughters who are and they are seeking advice for how to combat it.  We tend to think that girls who grow up without a father figure are the boy-crazy ones, but I've seen this trait exhibited in girls who come from a variety of home situations.  So, what is the answer for raising young women who love God and are not dependent on boys for their happiness or security?

"I never thought I would . . ."

I never thought I would . . . eat a deep fried tarantula while on a mission trip to distribute rice in Cambodia. I was expecting it to be crispy but it was like a gummy worm. I screamed and threw it across the table. The Cambodian kids we were traveling with had ...
