Item Description...
Overview
Even when life is hectic and harried, every woman has a God-given longing for relationship, and her female friends play an important role in fulfilling that. This book will help women distinguish between self-centered, insecure, childish relationships and other-centered, healthy, "grown-up" relationships. Using personal anecdotes and scriptural principles, they explain the ten characteristics of a grown-up friend and offer ideas on how readers can develop these attributes in themselves.

Publishers Description
Even when life is hectic and harried, every woman has a God-given longing for relationship, and her female friends play an important role in filling that. Oliver and Smalley help women distinguish between self-centered, insecure, childish relationships and other-centered, healthy, "grown-up" relationships. Using personal anecdotes and scriptural principles, they explain ten characteristics of a grown-up friend and offer ideas on how readers can develop these attributes in themselves. Finally, they tackle the tough issues of friendships, such as how to support a friend in crisis, how to work toward forgiveness when a friend has injured you, and how to determine when it is best to let a friendship go.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I loved this book!!  May 13, 2009
This book really breaks it down for you. I really enjoyed the 'Friend Baskets' I even bought a few extras and recommended the book to my MOPS group.
 
wonderful study on the friendsips of women...  May 12, 2009
we got this book for our small group to read as a group study. it's terrific! some of the girls who don't usually get involved have started out really getting into the book and discussions. it's pretty much what we hoped for - an interesting look at developing friendships with other women as adults. we're not all at the same level spiritually, and some of us are just starting out with this "friendship thing", so this book is nearly perfect! i love that they bring the science of human nature into it as well - why women are they way we are from a scientific perspective. :)
 
Deep Insights--anything but basic!  Oct 20, 2008
This was an excellent book with great insight into the many facets of female relationships. I finished the book in three days and refer to it often in dealing with my own "grown-up girlfriends." I appreciated Smalley's and Oliver's research of the material as well as their own personal stories sprinkled throughout the book. Their honesty and transparency allowed for great examples of the points made throughout the book. Their professional expertise blended with their own girlfriend experiences come together for a wonderful handbook to be used and reused!
 
Very basic concepts  Sep 15, 2008
I did not enjoy this book. The concepts are so basic that I struggled to finish it. It doesn't provide very deep insight.
 
Chocked full of wonderful insites!  Jan 11, 2008
As the authors wrote candidly from their own experiences, sharing insights many would not dare touch upon, I felt a connection from the get-go. It is an easy read, like sitting down and having coffee with a good friend who is chocked full of truth and reality about the rich and challenging aspects of the deepest of friendships. Half way through, I bought a copy for my daughter, and she felt the same!
