Item description for The Friendships of Women: The Beauty and Power of God's Plan for Us by Dee Brestin...
Overview This tenth anniversary edition updates the classic that transformed the way women think about their friendships. In addition, a personal or small group study guide has been added to the close of each chapter.
In the midst of deadlines, car pools, and breakfast dishes, it can be tempting to push aside your longing for intimate friendships. Why add something else to your schedule-and be hurt or disappointed again? Yet it seems that even in the busyness and struggles of life, we cannot ignore our ache to know kindred spirits.
In The Friendships of Women, Dee Brestin encourages you to listen to your need for friendships and to find and strengthen those relationships. Relying on key biblical stories, Dee explores what the story of Ruth teaches us about "rapport talk," how Luke celebrates the power of women's intuition, and what we can learn about avoiding unhealthy dependency from one of the most significant friendships in the Old Testament.
With a passion borne from an intense belief in the power of friendship, Dee guides your relationships to new levels of intimacy and trust. Engaging, honest, and deeply personal, The Friendships of Women will inspire you to see your desire for friendship not as a burden but as a gift.

The Friendships of Women: The Beauty and Power of God's Plan for Us Dec 12, 2008
This is a great book. It answered a lot of questions I had concerning friendships, like how to be a good friend and how to maintain friendships, and why they sometimes go sour! It illustrates real life friendship issues we all face and offers lots of practical wisdom from great Biblical examples, and it's funny too!
