I read the first half of this book in one sitting. I did not want to put it down, although I did pause for a few minutes at one point to reflect on one of my friendships. While I was reflecting (and feeling incredibly blessed for the richness of this friendship), I took a few moments to text my friend and let him know how much I appreciated him. How much my wife and I enjoy spending time with him and his wife. How I appreciate his encouragement and how we laugh together.
And therein lies the beauty of The Gift of Friendship. The beautifully written stories within the pages will cause you to realize how very blessed you are by God and how He puts certain people in your life because He loves you. And, oh how He loves you!
Embrace friendships. They are one of the most profound ways that God loves us. This book has helped me to be more grateful for the friendships I enjoy. And gratitude helps us to be gracious.
Now I am off to give this book to my daughter, and my wife, and so on! This book is so needed–for men too.
I've lived in 5 cities since I graduated college 10 years ago. All of those moves were by choice but moving that much makes friendships challenging. Reading this book made me think back to the special people from each time in my life. But it also made me long for that same level of friendship where we live now - both for myself and my husband.
There was one story in particular that really caught my attention. I loved the idea of a friendship so authentic that the two women took turns visiting each other and helping each other clean so they didn't have to do it alone!
But I have to admit this was a hard book for me to read because so many of the stories involved MOPS or playdates and I'd really like to read a book that was more geared toward women like me. Ones who are married but don't have kids even after years of marriage. I wish there was a MOPs group for me...
I received a free copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
These women cover everything. Their imperfections, their flaws, and the ways their friendships have truly made their lives richer by overlooking all of those things. True friends know all your imperfections and love you anyway. This is a collection of how women have reached out to other women when they needed them most.
I really loved this book. I think sometimes as women we underestimate how important friendships are. We get busy with life and with motherhood. But good friends are still good friends within the busyness of life. I would highly recommend this book to all the lovely ladies in my life.
I rate this book as 5 stars. I received this book for free from Revell, a division of Baker Book Publishers in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
