I've found a book that I need to read. Not have to read or want to read. NEED to read. I'm desperately calling for some of my sisters to read this along with me! I've had a wonderful time reading Beth Moore's So Long Insecurity and Esther and I have so many other things that I've got to get off of my "TO-READ" list but I just feel a tugging on my heart for this! I'm wondering if any of you would want to read this with me and meet on Sunday afternoons for about an hour to discuss what we read.

Here's the Book from Lisa Whelchel: (maybe we could start the first Sunday in June??)

Friendship For Grown-Ups

Do you long for a true friend?

Isn’t that what we all want? To be seen, in all our glory, for better or worse, the good, the bad, and the ugly and still be embraced?’ If only such friendships were easy to find. And keep.

Growing up as an actress in Hollywood, there were few people Lisa could trust, and even fewer to guide her. By the time she reached adulthood, she had learned to be self-sufficient. She was strong, she was “safe,” and she was lonely.

One day, Lisa found that the “the desire to experience connection was stronger than the desire to be safe.” She determined right then to finally understand friendship: how to create one, sustain it, and experience the sheer joy of having it. But it wasn’t easy.

Lisa’s story is heartfelt and compelling. She explores the thorny topic of women’s friendships with honesty, emotion and practical insight. For those who’ve grown up in strong friendships, this book offers powerful reminders to protect those friendships and keep them healthy. And for the rest of us who long for that companionship, this book is a much-needed and compassionate guide to becoming the friend we all need.
