Enduring Friendship : Sticking Together In An Age Of Unfriending$20.00Add to cart
Friendships are difficult.
Sometimes it can seem as if friends are more work and pain than they’re worth, with friendship challenges that we have to endure and struggle through. Life gets in the way of our well-intentioned efforts to connect. Conflicts and differences over serious issues divide us and make us think that we could never be close to a person ever again. In today’s cancel culture, it’s easy to give up on people and just walk away, leaving us all more isolated than before. How can we build real relationships that are life giving and pass the test of time?
Bryan Loritts mines one of the Bible’s least-known books for insights into how friendships can flourish even in the midst of sin and brokenness. With careful exposition and insight, he unpacks how the apostle Paul helped Philemon and Onesimus reconcile a most unlikely relationship with truth, repentance, and grace. With God’s work and steadfast love, even the most painful relationships that have ruptured are not beyond the reach of forgiveness and reconciliation. Discover how friendships that are hard can be transformed into friendships that endure.
Here For It The Good The Bad And The Queso$19.99Add to cart
We all long to do life together with people who really “get” us. Amy Weatherly and Jess Johnston, bestselling authors and founders of the wildly popular “Sister, I Am with You” online community, simplify some of the trickier aspects of friendship and give readers practical ways to deepen the friendships they already have.
Making friends as an adult is hard! It’s weird and it’s tricky and it can feel overwhelming.
Maintaining those friendships and taking them to a deeper level can be even harder. Just as Amy and Jess gave readers a road map for finding real, authentic relationships with I’ll Be There (But I’ll Be Wearing Sweatpants), they now provide a toolkit for building up and building on those friendships. Here For It (The Good, the Bad, and the Queso) will dig deeper into the hows and whys of doing life together in a culture that constantly tries to keep us separate. Readers will learn how to:
*distinguish between different types of friendships and recognize when a seasonal relationship has run its course;
*understand the importance of self-awareness, healthy confrontation, and differing love languages in friendship; and
*maintain long-distance friendships, foster real relationships with your neighbors, and establish traditions that strengthen your connections.
With this new book, Amy and Jess give readers the tools they need to continue laying a strong foundation and building relationships that are steady, secure, and made to withstand whatever life throws their way.
When A Friendship Falls Apart$17.99Add to cart
We all long for “friends forever”–but what happens when forever ends?
They say friends are the family we choose. And that choosing–the joy of loving and being loved by someone who isn’t genetically obligated to share life with us–adds priceless worth to our days, but also great risk. Because hurt can happen even in the closest friendships, and sometimes friendships fall apart. The loss can be staggering. As we struggle to digest the pain and confusion, we wonder, How could this happen? And what do I do now?
In When a Friendship Falls Apart, beloved author Elizabeth Laing Thompson comes alongside readers as they process their struggling friendships–the faltering, the fractured, and the failed. Blending personal story, biblical examples, and faith-filled wisdom, each page explores questions like the following:
*How do we guard against the poison of bitterness so we can process the hurt and move forward?
*When and how do we seek reconciliation? What does forgiveness look like?
*How do we know when it’s time to leave a friendship behind?
*How do we open up again and entrust our wounded hearts to new friendships?
If you find yourself in the midst of a friendship that’s falling apart, or you’re grappling with past hurts and regrets, this book is for you. May it be a comfort and help, leading you closer to the Friend who will never leave.

No Greater Love$15.99Add to cart
Greater love has no one than this: that he lay down his life for his friends. -John 15:13
Our culture idolizes romance and the love of parents for their children. But Jesus said there was no greater love than sacrificial friendship love. What’s more, He issued a command to His disciples that they live into this kind of love. Christian friendship isn’t just a nice-to-have. It’s vital. But it’s also dangerous.
Friends can pull us up when we’re knocked down, embrace us with their love, and spur us on to follow Jesus better. But friends can also grind us to the ground, exploit, or invite us into sin.
In No Greater Love, Rebecca McLaughlin walks us through the highs and lows of friendship love–a love that’s been neglected and malnourished in our modern world. She draws especially on Jesus in the Gospels and on Paul to show how powerful and precious Christian friendship is and how we can walk through the hurt, loss, and disillusionment that comes from broken friendship trust. Beginning with the words of Jesus on the night he was betrayed and abandoned, she points us to His battle-tested love as the unending source of our best love for one another.
Male or female, single or married, joyful or lamenting, lonely or embraced, we all need friendship love. This book will help us give and receive it in a way that calls us back to Jesus’s commandment: that we love each other just like He loves us.

*How loneliness points to our God-given needs
*Why vulnerability is the beginning of real friendship
*How to deepen friendships we already have

*God’s design for “covenant friendships”

Life Changing Cross Cultural Friendships$18.99Add to cart
We can heal our communities–one friendship at a time.
Many of us want to do something to improve race relations, but we don’t know where to start or even if we can make a difference. In Life-Changing Cross-Cultural Friendships, beloved authors and good friends Gary Chapman and Clarence Shuler answer those questions and more by recounting their own story together.
Long before Gary was the bestselling author of The 5 Love Languages and Clarence was the president and CEO of Building Lasting Relationships, they were just an associate pastor and a young high school student, bonded by a love of Christ and learning how to navigate their newly desegregated community. Decades of friendship later, they are sharing the important lessons they learned that will enable you to experience enriching friendships across racial and ethnic barriers.
Each chapter of this inspiring and practical book will guide you into a deeper level of understanding about what friendship is and about the benefits of cross-cultural friendships on an individual and national level. These powerful lessons will include:
*The importance of choosing the right words
*How to differentiate true friends from mere acquaintances
*How Jesus initiated a cross-cultural relationship
*The first two steps to your own cross-cultural friendship
*Three ways to resolve conflict in a cross-cultural friendship
*How to make friendships last through life’s many seasons
Breaking down the walls of division might not be easy, but the simple act of building friendships tears down walls of racism and fear. Will you accept the cross-cultural friendship challenge?
Sisterhood : Giving And Receiving The Gift Of Friendship$15.95Add to cart
Let’s face it: Real-life friendship is hard! We find ourselves challenged by superficial #girltribe social media posts, so how can we really achieve authentic friendship? And is friendship even worth it?
Sisterhood isn’t just a trend or unreachable goal; in fact, friendship with other women is a necessity. Why? Because we’re made for it. We’re created in the image and likeness of the triune God. “Relationship” is stamped into our spiritual DNA — just as God desires to be in relationship with us, he also longs for us to be in authentic relationship with others.
Whether you’re in a steady place with the women in your life or you’re not confident at all when it comes to friendship with other women, each and every one of us always has room to grow in the art of friendship. In Sisterhood: Giving and Receiving the Gift of Friendship, Catholic wife, mom, author, and friend Chloe Langr offers a practical guide to discerning, developing, and keeping authentic friendships.
Art Of Friendship$18.00Add to cart
In this age of limitless digital connections, we are somehow lonelier than ever. This isn’t just bad news–it’s dangerous news. Loneliness puts us at greater health risk than smoking or obesity, but we would sooner label ourselves overweight than admit we are lonely. It is a secret that is killing us.
Contrary to all our efforts, the answer is not found in more connections, but deeper ones that mirror God himself as the originator of friendship and the original Friend. The Art of Friendship walks with you into a greater understanding of how God has equipped you to be a friend and to have meaningful friendships. With step-by-step guidance, you will begin to strategize how to fulfill your divine calling as a friend. And through God’s Word, as you come to understand the depth and width and breadth of God as Friend, you will discover that the spiritual discipline of friendship is both life-changing and life-giving.
Friendish : Reclaiming Real Friendship In A Culture Of Confusion$17.99Add to cart
Bible teacher Kelly Needham debunks our world’s constricted, small view of friendship and casts a richer, more life-giving, biblical vision for friendship as God meant it to be.
As the family unit grows more unstable and the average age of marriage increases, a shift is taking place in our culture: for many people, friends now play the role of family. And just as with family relationships, our friendships often don’t turn out quite as we envisioned or hoped, and we wonder, Is there a better way to do this?
In Friend-ish, Kelly Needham takes a close look at what Scripture says about friendship. She reveals the distorted view most of us have of it and recasts a glorious vision for a Christian understanding. By teaching us how to recognize symptoms of idolatry and dependency, she equips us to understand and address the problems that arise in friendship–from neediness to discord and even sexual temptation. With hard-fought wisdom, a clear view of Scripture, and been-there perspective, Needham reorients us toward the purposeful, loving relationships we all crave that ultimately bring us closer to God.

Company We Keep$9.99Add to cart
Friendship: it’s one of the simplest of human relationships in comparison to marriage or family relationships, yet it’s one of the least understood and practiced. For all of our progress in making connections through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media, people are consistently experiencing loneliness and growing disenchanted with the whole notion of friendship.
Could it be that our understanding of friendship has been more informed by pop culture and social media, and less informed by the vision of friendship offered in Scripture? Is it possible that friendship exists for a greater purpose than merely our enjoyment and comfort? Does real friendship involve more than just hanging out on a weekend, participating in a book club, or hitting the golf course together? These questions and more are answered in this book.
Broader and deeper than simple fellowship, biblical friendship is first and foremost about a relationship with Jesus Christ. As you are brought into friendship and relationship with the Father, Jesus Christ calls you a friend! It is out of this friendship that our human friendships find their beginning and their purpose.
Aelred, a Cistercian monk who wrote a profound treatise on friendship, said, “And so in friendship are joined honor and charm, truth and joy, sweetness and good-will, affection and action. And all these take their beginning from Christ, advance through Christ, and are perfected in Christ.” This is the core of biblical friendship, and what sets it apart from what the world is offering: it all flows from Jesus Christ. Friendship finds its origin, purpose, and power in Jesus. Our human friendships then must be shaped by this life-changing truth.
Biblical friendship is deep, honest, pure, transparent, and liberating. It is also attainable. Dig into this book, and learn how your friendships can embody this amazing and wonderful reality.

Friend Me : Turning Faces Into Lasting Relationships$14.99Add to cart
From Virtual Friends to Authentic Relationships
With the rise of social media, more of us are managing our relationships online instead of in person. Technology that was meant to make communication easier and faster for busy people may have met its goal, but often at the expense of intimacy and meaningful conversation. In many cases, friendship has become a status decided by the click of a mouse. Kindling a relationship-or cutting one off-is as simple as “friending” someone or removing that person from your list. And someone with a thousand-plus online pals may be the loneliest person on the planet.
If you can identify, you’re not alone. That’s because each of us is wired to thrive in the context of real relationships-live interaction with real individuals, such as is shared by Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It’s how we give and receive emotional sustenance and support. Yet this type of intimacy can’t be achieved online.
Join Donna Carter on a journey to stronger, more satisfying relationships as you explore:
*The risks of being vulnerable and why they’re worth it
*Qualities to seek out in a friend, as well as to cultivate in your own life
*Toxic relationships and how to avoid them
*Steps toward reconciliation, including forgiveness
*The purpose of solitude in refreshing the soul
Experience a richness in your human relationships that you’ve never experienced before. And, as you do, draw closer to the One who designed you to love and be loved, by other people and by Him.
Truth About Guys$14.99Add to cart
Okay, it’s a fact. God made guys and girls different in more ways than just the physical.
But how different could we really be? After all, we are all made in His image, right? Well, yes, but let’s just say that guys and girls view the world in such different ways, that it’s a miracle we communicate at all. What’s worse is that girls this age often think they know what makes guys tick. That couldn’t be more wrong!
Chad Eastham tells it like it is . . . to girls . . . from a guy’s perspective. As a popular presenter at Revolve conferences, he is known for his ability to speak truth and to give girls clearer perspective about guys and themselves as well as understand their own value. Chad explains, “You are incredibly valuable and worthy simply because God created you.”

Clothesline Chats$20.49Add to cart
Whether studying the Bible, attending a conference or seminar together, or supporting a common interest, Christian women form groups for many reasons. A group’s effectiveness is influenced by its appreciation of the unique life experiences God has given to each of its members. However, many groups focus on achieving goals without providing adequate forums for their members to truly learn about each other. Clothesline Chats is a turnkey approach to getting to know fellow group members. A Chat group of up to fifteen women follows a schedule to telephone one another. Each woman receives a Chat name, and the group selects fourteen Chat days. On each Chat day, each woman considers a suggested conversation topic and initiates a Chat with one group member. Through these Chats, the women gain a familiarity with each other that rarely occurs in a group setting. Whether a group is diverse or similar, newly formed or well established, knowledgeable about Christianity or new to the faith, any Christian woman can benefit from the support and encouragement that comes from sharing her life experiences with her sisters in Christ
