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!

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.

Author Bio

Donna Carter has a unique ability to synthesize life experience into digestible life lessons. She is sought after as a speaker in Canada and internationally because of her clarity, humor and the light-bulb moments she triggers for women seeking help on their spiritual journeys. Donna grew up in a family of girls and has always loved to be with other women. She has often been known to say, "A good women's event has to involve laughing, crying, and hugging." In other words, having fun, letting our emotional guard down enough for truth to deeply touch us, and experiencing community with other women are values Donna holds dear. These are the things she seeks to facilitate where ever she speaks. Donna has spoken in small Bible study settings, large conference settings, and the retreat settings that fall in between. She also loves outreach events and has an ability to present the gospel in a clear, "seeker-friendly" way that is well received by many different types of audiences. Donna's passion is to be real, get down to real issues, and explore how God's Word speaks to those issues. Donna lives in Calgary, Canada, with her husband, Randy, who is a youth speaker, and her two daughters, Kendall and Kevann. Her first book, 10 Smart Things Women Can Do to Build a Better Life, was released in the fall of 2007 and is now being distributed in five countries.
