Hey, there. I’m really glad you’re here – in fact, I’ve been waiting for you because I like you. “But you don’t even know me?” you might say. But I think I do.
You’re probably over-scheduled and under-rested. You sometimes wonder if you really can do it all. There are days when you fantasize about hopping in a fancy sports car and running away to the beach for a week – alone. Or perhaps you pin millions of pins on Pinterest then feel inadequate when yours doesn’t turn out quite like theirs.

Friendships with other women are as important to our mental, physical, and spiritual health as rest, exercise, and prayer. We don’t just want friends—we need friends. Yet sometimes they can be as difficult as singing a song without the lyrics.
Natalie uses her own and others’ stories of successes and failures to illustrate what she has learned about girlfriend relationships. Healthy boundaries, honesty, tact, sharing, and agape love all play a part in being and maintaining a circle of close confidants.

After reading this book, your heart will long to be this kind of God-honoring friend.Lysa TerKeurst
