Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know they are there.
I’ve been quiet around here a lot this half a year or so. I’m praying constantly for God to reveal to me what He wants me to do and where He wants this ministry to go. Over and over He has laid the topic of friendship on my heart and mind.
You and I have two things in common here. Christ and friendship. When those two worlds crash into each other, we get something truly unbelievable. It’s brilliant, heart warming, wonderful, and messy. Complicated and rewarding.
I’m currently working on my outline and chapters for a new ebook on friendship. Here’s where I need you. Seriously, need you my friends, to help me write a book that speaks to the hearts of women about biblical friendships. Not just the fluffy parts of friendship -I need that stuff too – but the real nitty gritty, tough stuff.
