About Together Is a Beautiful Place: Finding, Keeping, and Loving Our Friends
Are you lonely? Do you struggle to find the real friends you long for? Here is your invitation to build lasting friendship through meaningful and intentional practices that anyone can do.
The older we get, the less we find ourselves spending time in the company of good friends. Organic friendship becomes nearly impossible--after all, there are all sorts of obligations tugging at our attention. Or we find ourselves getting frustrated with shallow, draining conversations. Or, most painful of all, we feel like no one wants us--and who wants to be rejected?
If you have found yourself desperately wanting connection but confused about why you are not experiencing it, you are not alone. And you don't have to stay there.
As Christian women, our faith calls us to support one another on the path of growing as a follower of Jesus--a call that will connect us, create a solid foundation for trust, and bind us together in Jesus' love, no matter what struggles we face on the road of friendship. Together Is a Beautiful Place offers practical habits that are sustainable, deep, and valuable.
- identify what makes a godly, lasting friendship;
- tackle lies and false expectations about what it takes to build lasting friendship; and
- learn to tackle the barriers to friendship and invite healthy friendship rhythms.
You will find that it is possible to grow healthy friendships, starting now.
