This was such an enjoyable read. There were only a few things that hinder me from giving this book 5 stars. 1. This book was targeted at married women. A lot of her examples, stories, and discussion questions did not apply to me. But in spite of this I did learn so much and would definitely recom...

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book as part of the launch team. This is one of the best books on relationships that I've read. I've read Christine's previous book The Church Planting Wife, and it was good, but she has grown tremendously as a writer and thinker since that book. This book is...

While Christine writes with women in mind, her wisdom on friendship applies to both men and women. I was encouraged and challenged in this read, as the purpose of friendship is identified, reasonable expectations for friendship are discussed, and the joy of Christian friendship is celebrated. Thr...

I shouldn't have ordered this book. I already have about thirty books which I've been meaning to read in the last 3/4 years. But this book is just what I needed. I came across this book from following Desiring God, at a time when I was feeling acute loneliness and inept socially due to a few thin...

I'm an introvert, so making friends isn't always the easiest thing for me. When I moved to Louisville by myself, I didn't know anyone here, but I was sure that I would be able to meet new people and make a friend or two once I'd joined a church. That wasn't the case. I don't know if it was someth...

There are lots of books about friends. There are lots of books about women. There are lots of books aimed at Christian women. But now, finally, there is one about the importance of friendship in the lives of Christian women. Having read Christine Hoover's previous book From Good to Grace, I was ex...

Many Christian women struggle with friendships. Yet often we feel that we are alone in our struggles. We see our friends post pictures on Facebook of get-togethers with other friends and we wonder why we weren't invited. Friendships as adults are hard. This book addresses that difficulty and that...

(Disclosure: I received a book for being a part of Christine's launch team.) I enjoyed this book. It's a great topic, and Hoover's thoughts are biblical and clear. A lot of Christian books are true but boring, or interesting without depth. Hoover's writing is both true and well spoken. I wasn't s...

Spotted this book at The Gospel Coalition conference and was shocked I hadn't heard anything about it yet, only to realize it hadn't been officially released yet, ha! I was shocked because I feel like this is a topic so many women struggle with and crave insight on, so thank God for Christine Hoo...
