While there are ample books for women on dating, career, marriage, and motherhood, less prevalent are thoughtful writings about the everyday handling of female friendships. Inspired by the highs and lows of a backpacking trip across Europe with four gal pals, Marian Jordan's The Girlfriends Guidebook charts a winning pathway through "jealousy, competition, control, anger, manipulation, and resentment-just to name a few less than cuddly aspects of our personalities."
Informed by her faith, Marian encourages deeper friendships built on Christlike honesty and love, emphasizing the development of such qualities as loyalty, trustworthiness, compassion, and forgiveness. Jordan also makes it clear that The Girlfriends Guidebook should be read first with one's self in mind... recognizing that when we are freed from our own emotional baggage we will really be able to enjoy the journey!
Louise5 Stars Out Of 5The Girlfriends GuidebookNovember 23, 2014LouiseI can't believe how helpful this book has been to me. Having just gone through a female friendship disaster, it has helped me to understand and begin to recover. Seriously, try this book. You will be glad you did!
shellieAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Must-Read for any WomanJanuary 21, 2012shellieAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Girlfriends Guidebook, by Marian Jordan is a must read for any woman. While there are many books and manuals on marriage, dating, and child-rearing this book takes a look at something every woman has in common, but few books are written for friendship.
Ms. Jordan does an excellent job looking through scripture and exemplifying the finer points in a friendship as well as helpful tips to navigate the pitfalls, we all come across. I would recommend this book to any friend and plan on sharing it with my daughters, as well.

Jill JonesOpelika, ALAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great small group study for womenDecember 19, 2011Jill JonesOpelika, ALAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4As a woman do you find it difficult to foster relationships with other women? Do you make your friendship with women more complicated than it was designed to be? Marian Jordan, founder of Redeemer Girl Ministries, wrote "The Girlfriend's Guidebook" to help women navigate the rough waters of jealousy, control, competition, anger, manipulation and resentment.
Jordan discusses disposing of your baggage and has several chapters explaining the characteristics of a Christlike friend. "The Girlfriend's Guidebook" is a wonderful small group study for a woman's group. The back of the book contains questions small groups can discuss. Jordan suggests that we look within ourselves and gain freedom from our own emotional baggage so that we can enjoy the journey of our friendships with other women.
Instead of jealousy and resentment, Jordan shows us how to foster compassion, forgiveness and loyalty as well as many other traits necessary for a successful and positive relationship.
