Publisher's Description

Young women long for relational connection with women further ahead of them on the journey. Yet, without realizing it, many of us tend to distance ourselves from those in younger generations. Can we really have close relationships with women who have different thoughts on church, different experiences with family, and different ways of talking about God? Where do we start?

In A Friend in Me, Pam Lau shows you how to be a safe place for the younger women in your life. She offers five patterns women need to internalize and practice for initiating relationships and talking about issues such as faith, forgiveness, sexuality, and vocation. Most significantly, she reminds you that there doesn’t need to be a divide between generations of women. Together, we can have a global impact—and experience a deeper faith than we’ve ever known.

    A Friend in Me is filled with heart-changing advice every woman should read. So many of us are so busy with day to day life, we forget to seek out help from women who have experienced life. On the other hand so many young ladies aren't sure who to turn to. This book is essential for women who follow Christ and wish to make a difference.

    I love the five patterns Pamela points out to encourage women to be a more Christ-like influence on one another. She digs into each one with great examples of women she's mentored or ladies who mentored her. She even delves into areas that are hard to talk about, in a way that brings to light the great need for woman to woman conversations. This is not a work book. It's a heart book that can make a difference to the reader and anyone the reader encounters. I recommend A Friend in Me for a women's Bible study group because it would open faith building conversations.

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of A Friend in Me in exchange for an honest review.

    I loved this book on so many levels. It is underlined and marked with notes all over the pages. The author asks a great question. Does my life tell other women that they have a friend in me and that they are deeply loved by Almighty God? The most important thing we can tell those younger is is that we don't have it all together. To share our story~ or failures and successes. Pamela shares that many women still live with wounds and are recovering from the hard knocks of life. Life is littered with hardships. Amen and amen! That we need to receive comfort before we can comfort others. Amen and amen! That we need to forgive so we can be forgiven. That we need to forgive our own selves. This book encourages women to become a safe place for other women.

    I loved this book and I believe that all ladies of all ages need to read it. This is a book for such a time as this. Wow!!! Wow!!! and Wow!!!

    First off, I'm reading and reviewing (and enjoying) this book as one of The Next Generation.

    (No, not the Star Trek fandom, the young Christians growing up today.)

    And I have to say, I love the ideas behind this book and I want to be a part of putting these concepts into practice.

    The longing for somebody to listen to us without getting upset or thinking they need to be our savior, to share their life lessons without being heavy handed or negative and to give the precious gift of their time and affection- I think those are universal desires.

    Some say it's mentoring, some say it's making disciples, some just call it friendship, whatever word you use it all comes down to intentional investment in another's life. I can do that, you can do that, and somebody can do that for us.

    Frankly, if an older woman came alongside me and began listening to me and talking with me following the approach outlined in this book, I'd probably soak it right up. Pamela encourages women to gain one main quality- that of being a safe haven.

    If you expect to speak frankly about "vocation" and "sexuality" and other charged topics, then you'd better be an open-hearted listener. We'd better know that our secrets are safe and our struggles aren't turn-offs. You'd better be able to bear with issues that may have no resolution, and to encourage our frail little dreams.

    There is a place- a big place- for guidance and even correction.

    It just has to be planted in the good soil of Trust, Comfort, Understanding, and Compassion.

    "A Friend in Me" makes this abundantly clear. And it also makes clear the wonderful weight of a well-spoken word. Kind words, inspiring words, dream-giving words, they can feed a heart and change a whole life.

    So let's all be a safe haven for somebody. Let's all speak worthy words. Let's be friends.

    Thank you David C Cook publishers through Litfuse Publicity for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest opinion.
