Product Description

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
  • And so much more!

    With the multiple social medias available, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc., people are developing ‘friends,' but they aren't necessarily the close friendships every one needs. Donna Carter, in Friend Me, addresses the important issue of developing true face-to-face friendships, the kind with ‘skin on' as kids would say.

    The author indicates that friendships take time to build up, maintain, and even repair at times. She goes into detail on how to accomplish this interaction. Every one needs a friend, but with so many women at work or doing the social Medias, it has become harder for women to make these friendships. But they are vital to our lives.

    Her book is divided into four parts:

    The Power of Friendship-Everyone needs a friend

    The Portrait of Friendship-Being there for one another

    The Path of Friendship-Building good friendships; identifying toxic friends

    The Privilege of Friendship-The Ultimate Friendship, when you can't find a friend

    Some of the topics addressed include bonding, availability, authenticity, affirmation, acceptance, accountability, seasons of friendships, grace, forgiveness, etc., all of which play a part in friendships. The author does an excellent job of pulling all the pieces together, examining yourself as well as the other person, whether you are a good fit. Her humor can help you break down the walls that may hinder a friendship from developing. Friends come from unique places we may not necessary be looking. Keep your heart open to the Lord's leading.

    She wraps up her book with the Ultimate Friendship and how to respond to His friendship.

    This is a good book for a Bible study group, but also for those who move about and must seek out new friends in a new community.

    Special thanks to Cathy Hickling for sending me a review copy for free in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was received.

    Friend Me greatly surpassed my expectations! Carter skillfully juxtaposes a moving personal drama into her insightful and practical teaching on building meaningful friendships. Liberally laced with Scripture and written with warmth and humor, the book would be an excellent choice for small groups for: 1) its insightful discussion questions (after each chapter) and 2) the emphasis on "face time" with friends (rather than staying in touch exclusively online). I received a pre -release ARC for review, but I intend to buy the book (release date Feb. 1 2013) for the photos of the real people described including Carter's lifelong best friend. I definitely could relate to their ups and downs and couldn't help but be moved by the hand of God by the time I'd read the last page. Friend Me is a treasure I should share with my friends in person. For now I'm letting y'all learn about it online.
