While girls may talk about the "follows" and "likes" on their social media sites, what they really want is true, lasting, unconditional friendship; they want connection. Written for teen girls, We Saved You A Seat is a 7-week study on friendship that unpacks seven practical ways to take Jesus up on His invitaion to love other people by being the friend who makes the first move.
The book has personal study and friendship challenges to be completed during the week between sessions. A Leader Guide is included in the back of the book.
Noteworthy: This author is one of a special group of women who writes for (in)courage, the popular online friendship community. Every day they take turns pulling up a chair to share their stories of what Jesus looks like in their every day, gloriously ordinary, and often messy lives.

Some of the best and most difficult work God calls us to do is to love other people.
In a culture where friendship is measured in follows, likes, mentions, and snaps, and being "unfriended" is a very real worry, girls often think they need to have it all togetherthe pressure for perfection creates distance instead of real, authentic relationships.
We Saved You A Seat takes girls deeper into Scripture to learn how to create, invest in, and keep up lifelong friendships. Jesus is the role model for our friendships and Scripture is the foundation. We dont wait until were all put together to come to Jesus. Over the course of seven sessions, girls will learn that true friendship takes…
- Showing up and being willing to go first
- Being vulnerable and knowing that real friendship is messy
- Encouraging rather than competing
- The desire for connection over perfection
- Knowing when to walk away
While girls may talk about the follows and likes and the perfect promposal, what they really want is true, lasting, unconditional friendship. They want connection. They want to know that someone saved them a seat.
- Leader helps in the back of the Bible study book so anyone can facilitate a group
- Personal Study to be completed between the 7 group sessions
- Debunk the myth that friendship is easy.
- Overcome the fear of knowing and being known.
- Quit running from friendship and find the courage to connect.
