I was excited to read this believing that it would be a step by step guide to forming lifelong friendships...and it is. But, it is also a direct, hard hitting call to action...to forgiveness...to healing...to forward progress. I didn't believe I really needed to re-visit past hurts because I thought I had handled them well...and moved on. Mrs. Snapp showed me, through her engaging style, that I had more "work" to do in order to really be present and available to be a true friend to others.
I love the author's gift for softening the blow of powerful realities...of concepts and processes that I have preferred to avoid for too long. I love her ability to articulate what an essential need we have for the soul connection with other women friends! All I kept thinking about as I read it is: "Why wasn't this book around when I was young?" (She probably was in preschool then...ha ha) "I need every Christian woman I know to read this!!" (I'm working on that by making it a book club book for our next title!)
I will also be giving a copy of this to our daughter who is in college. I think it will prepare her heart for lifelong, true friendships and I am so excited about how God will work in her young life!
This book is amazing and a MUST READ for all Christian women!!
Our women's ministry actually read this book together because based on endorsements we thought it would agree with our theological views, however. we found it to be "off" in many places. It worked okay though because it challenged us to be like Bereans and read it with discernment, filtering it through the Scriptures. However, I otherwise would not have read it.
This was an actual purchase. I hate writing anything negative. I hope the author can take it with a grain of salt. We may not be on the same page with our doctrine but the topic is one that is needed and I give kudos to her for even approaching it! I am sure it will be helpful to some. After all, we are sisters in Christ and the main thing is Christ crucified. As for the other stuff, we can just agree to disagree on things and move forward together. I pray this review is taken that way.
I found Natalie's advice of how to confront problems in friendships very helpful: P.E.G. Pray about the problem (and not just that, but to pray *for* the other person). Examine your own heart and where you might need to change and grow in this situation. And Go - go to the other person, ask forgiveness, seek reconciliation.
Natalie also talked about how hurting people tend to hurt others. And how so many behaviors are driven by a basis of fear. Quote from the book: "Those who are preoccupied with outward appearances are scared of being revealed as imperfect. Those with anxiety are scared of the unknown. People who are always tough and wearing armor are often petrified of showing vulnerability because they think it's a weakness. Those who won't accept help and insist on doing everything themselves are fearful of relinquishing control and cannot humble themselves enough to ask for help. And those who must always be the center of attention are often scared of being rejected and feel as though they must perform to be loved."
Could it be that some (if not all?) of the hurtful behavior that I have experienced from others the past couple of years be caused by the other person being afraid? That is some serious fuel for the prayer fire, and it helps me have a much more forgiving attitude towards those who have hurt me.
I am very thankful God brought Natalie into my life a few years ago, and I'm even more thankful that He led her to write this book. Another chapter in her book deals with teaching our daughters to be Heart Sisters and how to handle conflict in friendships. My daughters have watched me cry over these broken friendships, and I want so much for them to have Heart Sisters and to BE Heart Sisters. Natalie's book has given me both hope for myself and for teaching my daughters. I highly recommend this book!
