Publisher's Summary

Women long for deep and lasting friendships but often find them challenging to make. The private angst they feel regarding friendship often translates into their own insecurity and isolation. Christine Hoover offers women a fresh, biblical vision for friendship that allows for the messiness of our lives and the realities of our schedules. She shows women:


What's holding them back from developing satisfying friendships
How to make and deepen friendships
How to overcome insecurity, self-imposed isolation, and past hurts
How to embrace the people God has already placed in their lives as potential friends
How to revel in the beauty and joy of everyday friendship

With stories of real friendships and guidance drawn from Scripture, Hoover encourages women to intentionally and purposefully invest in one of the most rewarding relationships God has given us.

Breath of Fresh Air

l love people. I'm an extreme extrovert and love casting a wide net of relationships. In the "friend department", I've often felt pridefully secure. But this book was a breath of fresh air- offering a crisp and refreshing explanation of the life-giving one and only Gospel of Jesus Christ as it relates to friendship. I was deeply challenged, encouraged, and spurred on in my faith. I am very thankful to Christine for pressing into the Spirit and writing this book so skillfully! Whether you struggle with making friends or have more than you can connect with deeply, READ THIS BOOK!

Convicting and encouraging

This book challenged me in so many ways. It revealed a lot of areas I have sinned in my friendships and showed me a new perspective
It was well read and I love her Texas accent. There was a part where she shared about a friend dying of cancer recently and her voice cracked as she read. I'm sure that's not ideal for an audio book producer but I found it so refreshing, like I was listening to a real person.
