Never Unfriended: The Secret to Finding and Keeping Lasting Friendships by Lisa-Jo Baker

Into the Wild

Read Never Unfriended: The Secret to Finding and Keeping Lasting Friendships Online Free - In a world where women can unfriend each other with the swipe of a finger, how do we find friendships that we can trust to last? Maybe by first becoming those kinds of lasting friends ourselves.

As the community manager at the website incourage.me since 2010, Lisa-Jo Baker has had the chance to engage hundreds of conversations with women about friendship. She’s learned that no one can make us quite as unsure about ourselves as another woman. And nothing can wound as deeply as unkind words from a friend. While we are all hungry for friendship, it’s the fear of feeling awkward and being rejected, left out, or hurt (again) that often keep us from connecting.

But what if we knew we could never be unfriended? Would we risk friendship then? 

Starting with that guarantee from the most faithful friend who ever lived—Jesus—this book is a step-by-step guide to friendships you can trust. It answers the questions that lurk under the surface of every friendship—What are we afraid of? What can’t we change? What can we change? And where do we start?—with personal stories and practical tips to help you make the friends, and be the friend, that lasts.

1.5 stars There are some good bits in this book, some truth, but there's also much I didn't like. For starters, this is supposed to be a book about friendship. So when a point is brought up that our friends cannot ever satisfy or complete us the way Christ can (truth), it would make sense to use an...

NEVER UNFRIENDED: The Secret to Finding and Keeping Lasting Friendships is for every woman who has ever over-analyzed their relationship with women (and who among us hasn't?)

Never Unfriended had some really powerful points. I enjoyed reading it and thought it was written well for the most part. A portion of the book had a lot of quotes from other people/books (of at least it seemed like a lot to me) and I don't know why exactly, but I didn't really care for that in t...

Unfriended. That word. That button is so easy to hit. One tiny tap, and boom, you are unfriended. Several years back a friend was going through a major life change and decided to unfriend a group of people from her 'old' life. I was one. She had been one of my closest friends and the rejection hurt...

We talked about this one on the podcast at work, and I was surprised to find I genuinely really enjoyed it and found so much of it relevant, meaningful, well-written, and thoughtful. The title led me to believe it would be a little cheesy or "trendy" in regards to social media terms, but it's rea...

I took my time with this book so I could stop and think about each chapter and what it said about friendships. I loved Lisa-Jo's confessional, relatable style and found so many parts of this book that resonated with me and challenged me to think about the way I approach friendships. Sometimes the...

I don't know where you are in your life right now, but as a 43 yo wife and mom to 4 who has had her ups and downs in the friend's department over the years, this book was the BOMB for me. I would recommend this book to every woman I know, but especially to the ones who feel like they struggle wit...
