  • Ill Be There But Ill Be Wearing Sweatpants

    $18.99

    Amy Weatherly and Jess Johnston, founders of the wildly popular “Sister, I Am with You” online community, address common obstacles to true connection and offer a confessional, hilarious, and practical guide for building deep friendships in the middle of this crazy, rollercoaster life.

    If you’ve ever wondered why it seems like such a struggle to make and maintain friendships as an adult–it’s not just you. The number of Americans who claim to have no close friends has drastically increased over the last few decades. Loneliness doesn’t care what age you are, how many Instagram followers you have, or where you call home. It doesn’t care how “put together” you appear to the outside world. Women have a collective wound that only authentic sisterhood can heal.

    In I’ll Be There (But I’ll Be Wearing Sweatpants), Amy Weatherly and Jess Johnston, creators of the popular online community “Sister, I Am With You,” offer an-easy-to-follow road map to the place we all desperately want to be–standing beside other women who see us, know us, and love us for who we truly are. With hilariously relatable vulnerability and actionable steps we can all take today to build deep and satisfying friendships, Amy and Jess show us how to:

    *break free from unhealthy habits that block us from connection;
    *find the confidence to live freely and without fear of rejection; and
    *intentionally pursue friends in everyday life.

    I’ll Be There (But I’ll Be Wearing Sweatpants) won’t talk down to us, or boss us around. It won’t tell us to simply “find your people” and then leave us feeling even more discouraged than before. This book will snuggle up beside us, grab a fuzzy blanket, and say “Let me show you how to do it. I’ve been there too. It’s hard, but it’s not impossible, and it’s so much better together.”

  • Smells Like Bacon

    $25.95

    The guys who together form the popular comedy duo The Skit Guys, take their distinct brand of humor and apply it to a guide on how to make and keep friends and why it matters for a life of faith and laughs.

    Tommy Woodard and Eddie James, the men who form the widely popular comedy duo The Skit Guys, have been best friends since high school. With encouragement and guidance from their youth pastor, the guys started to write and perform skits for their youth group. Since their high-school days, they’ve been writing and performing hilarious and poignant skits live around the world and on camera, as well as on their site, SkitGuys.com. Everywhere they go, the question people always ask them is, “How did you guys get to be and figure out how to stay friends?”

    Now, this offbeat duo is coming together to present Smells Like Bacon: The Skit Guys Guide to Lifelong Friendships, a book about the power of friendships and how to build the kind of friendships that last. Written in the signature hilarity of a Skit Guys dialogue–with well-placed banter or two sprinkled in for good measure–Smells Like Bacon explores:

    *Who needs friends?
    *Let’s-Dig-in-the-Dirt Friends
    *Awkward things not to say to potential friends
    *Crying at the movie Beaches
    *How to be a good friend;
    *What to look for in friends–and what to avoid;
    *How to handle difficult situations in friendship; and
    *Why God makes a great friend
    *And fun and random stories, and of course, bacon references

    Tommy and Eddie have traveled the world performing for families at events, churches, and conferences. Their SkitGuys.com website has grown into a treasured media resource for families, pastors and churches. Their numerous short films, skits, and scripts are used to reach families all over the world. When The Skit Guys aren’t performing or shooting new short films, both Tommy and Eddie serve in their local churches, enjoy good food (especially pizza and fries!), and love life with their families.

  • Art Of Friendship

    $14.99

    In this age of limitless digital connections, we are somehow lonelier than ever. This isn’t just bad news–it’s dangerous news. Loneliness puts us at greater health risk than smoking or obesity, but we would sooner label ourselves overweight than admit we are lonely. It is a secret that is killing us.

    Contrary to all our efforts, the answer is not found in more connections, but deeper ones that mirror God himself as the originator of friendship and the original Friend. The Art of Friendship walks with you into a greater understanding of how God has equipped you to be a friend and to have meaningful friendships. With step-by-step guidance, you will begin to strategize how to fulfill your divine calling as a friend. And through God’s Word, as you come to understand the depth and width and breadth of God as Friend, you will discover that the spiritual discipline of friendship is both life-changing and life-giving.

  • Friendish : Reclaiming Real Friendship In A Culture Of Confusion

    $17.99

    Bible teacher Kelly Needham debunks our world’s constricted, small view of friendship and casts a richer, more life-giving, biblical vision for friendship as God meant it to be.

    As the family unit grows more unstable and the average age of marriage increases, a shift is taking place in our culture: for many people, friends now play the role of family. And just as with family relationships, our friendships often don’t turn out quite as we envisioned or hoped, and we wonder, Is there a better way to do this?

    In Friend-ish, Kelly Needham takes a close look at what Scripture says about friendship. She reveals the distorted view most of us have of it and recasts a glorious vision for a Christian understanding. By teaching us how to recognize symptoms of idolatry and dependency, she equips us to understand and address the problems that arise in friendship–from neediness to discord and even sexual temptation. With hard-fought wisdom, a clear view of Scripture, and been-there perspective, Needham reorients us toward the purposeful, loving relationships we all crave that ultimately bring us closer to God.

  • Girls Club : Cultivating Lasting Friendship In A Lonely World

    $16.99

    In an era when many women struggle with feelings of isolation and deep loneliness, Girls’ Club calls us to embrace the delight and joy that can be found in life-giving female friendships-relationships that not only offer emotional affirmation and acceptance, but also inspire, educate, and stretch us to live out our God-given potential.

    Girls’ Club is a book of stories and encouragement based on the experiences of the authors: a middle-aged mom, her newly married oldest daughter, and her youngest daughter, a single woman in graduate school.

    While there are many books on women’s friendships that tout the message of “meeting each other in the mess,” Girls’ Club will speak to the value and satisfaction found through friendships in which women not only support each other emotionally but also encourage each other to become more excellent women.

    Girls’ Club will encourage women to take the initiative to seek out other women with whom to share life and to be blessed with the gift of deep friendship.

  • Never Unfriended : The Secret To Finding And Keeping Lasting Friendships

    $16.99

    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.

  • Amish Sweethearts

    $16.00

    Can These Two Friends from Opposite Worlds Find Love? They’ve been best friends for years, but as high school ends, Zane Beck can’t help but look at his Amish neighbor, Lila Lehman, with different eyes. Her controlling father sees only one future for Lila, though, and arranges for her to be courted by an upstanding young Amish man. When Zane sees the two together, his plans for the future crumble, and he impulsively enlists in the Army, following in his father’s footsteps.

    However, the passing of years and the distance between them isn’t enough to halt their now hidden feelings for each other. If being together used to be difficult, it’s now impossible, especially with the Amish opposed to war. Zane’s service takes a dramatic turn when he’s sent to Afghanistan. Being on the front line and the reality of taking a life has him questioning whether he can continue to serve or not. But all choices have consequences–both his and hers. With Lila preparing to marry another, will these one-time sweethearts ever find the life together that they both still long for?

  • Company We Keep

    $9.99

    Friendship: it’s one of the simplest of human relationships in comparison to marriage or family relationships, yet it’s one of the least understood and practiced. For all of our progress in making connections through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media, people are consistently experiencing loneliness and growing disenchanted with the whole notion of friendship.

    Could it be that our understanding of friendship has been more informed by pop culture and social media, and less informed by the vision of friendship offered in Scripture? Is it possible that friendship exists for a greater purpose than merely our enjoyment and comfort? Does real friendship involve more than just hanging out on a weekend, participating in a book club, or hitting the golf course together? These questions and more are answered in this book.

    Broader and deeper than simple fellowship, biblical friendship is first and foremost about a relationship with Jesus Christ. As you are brought into friendship and relationship with the Father, Jesus Christ calls you a friend! It is out of this friendship that our human friendships find their beginning and their purpose.

    Aelred, a Cistercian monk who wrote a profound treatise on friendship, said, “And so in friendship are joined honor and charm, truth and joy, sweetness and good-will, affection and action. And all these take their beginning from Christ, advance through Christ, and are perfected in Christ.” This is the core of biblical friendship, and what sets it apart from what the world is offering: it all flows from Jesus Christ. Friendship finds its origin, purpose, and power in Jesus. Our human friendships then must be shaped by this life-changing truth.

    Biblical friendship is deep, honest, pure, transparent, and liberating. It is also attainable. Dig into this book, and learn how your friendships can embody this amazing and wonderful reality.

  • Friend Me : Turning Faces Into Lasting Relationships

    $14.99

    From Virtual Friends to Authentic Relationships

    With the rise of social media, more of us are managing our relationships online instead of in person. Technology that was meant to make communication easier and faster for busy people may have met its goal, but often at the expense of intimacy and meaningful conversation. In many cases, friendship has become a status decided by the click of a mouse. Kindling a relationship-or cutting one off-is as simple as “friending” someone or removing that person from your list. And someone with a thousand-plus online pals may be the loneliest person on the planet.

    If you can identify, you’re not alone. That’s because each of us is wired to thrive in the context of real relationships-live interaction with real individuals, such as is shared by Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It’s how we give and receive emotional sustenance and support. Yet this type of intimacy can’t be achieved online.

    Join Donna Carter on a journey to stronger, more satisfying relationships as you explore:
    *The risks of being vulnerable and why they’re worth it
    *Qualities to seek out in a friend, as well as to cultivate in your own life
    *Toxic relationships and how to avoid them
    *Steps toward reconciliation, including forgiveness
    *The purpose of solitude in refreshing the soul
    *And more!

    Experience a richness in your human relationships that you’ve never experienced before. And, as you do, draw closer to the One who designed you to love and be loved, by other people and by Him.
