danniAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5great bookMarch 31, 2018danniAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In recent months, I have been struggling with the lack of Titus 2 being implemented in our world: living life together as women and older women mentoring younger women. So I was intrigued to read this book.
The book itself is a quick & easy read with 10 chapters at only 199 pages. It includes multiple Appendixes referencing previous chapters as well as a full Leaders Guide to be utilized for bible studies. Each chapter concludes with a Friendship Assignment that relates to that chapters wisdom. The book is also spattered with many real-life examples of women practicing the art of friendship.
Savage covers many topics including:
who are you momming with?
Variety is the spice of life
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It reconfirmed the necessity to mother within the realm of other mothers and women. It can be a dark and lonely road without the village of women surrounding you in the journey. The Friendship Assignments were particularly challenging and beneficial to directing one towards building such deep friendships.
One thing I did not appreciate was her constant plug for her ministry Hearts at Home. I realize the ministry itself is what created the book, but I felt she used the book too much in order to make plea for ministry support.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

It helped me to understand my friends (and husband) better. Helped me to understand how people different than myself think, and relate to one another. Also helped me to understand myself in relationships better. Would be great for small group discussion!
Laura W.4 Stars Out Of 5Moms Unite!March 31, 2016Laura W.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I very much enjoyed this book by Jill Savage. Filled with a "realness" you rarely find these days!!! Practical ways and encouragement for moms to reach out and just support one another. "We were not made to mother alone!" We moms truly are Better Together! Let's "build bridges" moms. Thank you Jill, for wonderful lessons, reminders, and just being real with us!!!!
Dawn4 Stars Out Of 5A great read for any mom looking to gain and grow meaningful friendshipsMarch 31, 2016DawnQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I found this book to be encouraging and inspiring. As a busy mom, (aren't we all) I often find myself feeling like I don't have the time and energy to really invest in my friendships the way I would like. This book gave practical advice on making, cultivating and growing friendships. Some of the ideas in the book were new to me, while some were a great reminder of things I already knew. This book is a worthwhile read for any mom who wants to gain and grow friendships.
rkestes075 Stars Out Of 5Speaks directly to your heartMarch 30, 2016rkestes07Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I truly enjoyed reading this book cover to cover. Inherently, we know that many things are better when you have someone to do them with. "Momming" is no exception to that rule, but many of us struggle with sharing our hearts with others, letting others see our struggles, and quite frankly, simply stepping out of our comfort zone to make new friends. As a full-time working mom of two, I struggle finding the time to invest in friendships. This book was encouraging in so many ways. It offers practical and spiritual advice on developing friendships (both old and new), how to build on them, and how to sustain them. One of the things I loved the most was the examples in the book -- real moms with real problems -- everything was so very relatable. Both Jill and Anne do a wonderful job of speaking directly to your heart.
