  - Practically examine issues so you can work your way through conflicts,

    This is a great book for all women to read, it reaches your heart and makes you feel that you are normal. Each word of advice is backed up with a bible verse and GOD's word. This book is great to teach us that life is not for busyness, it is enjoying GOD's love through friends and family. It teaches us that we have all types of friends that cross our path in life and it is all in GOD's plan for us.

    I would recommend this to all women, it makes you realize that you have so many options to make your life so much happier and just by doing a few simple things as reading GOD's word. This is one of those books you read and get the ahhhhaaa moments and it makes you feel that you are not alone and weird, you are actually normal and all women go through these feelings. Great book that makes so much sense, wish I had this book so many years ago.

    In her book, Heart Sisters, Natalie Chambers Snapp tells of a survey which found that 88% of 3,000 women polled believe there is an undercurrent of negativity and meanness with in the female culture. A high percentage of these women claimed to have been wounded by another. Snapps mission is to help her readers learn how to turn this around. She teaches them how to find and be heart sisters who care for and encourage one another. She teaches how to handle conflict with grace, how to forgive, how to set and maintain healthy boundaries, and how to know when its time to end an unhealthy friendship. She also teaches how to mentor the next generation of women, her readers daughters, so they wont grow up to cause or know the hurts of the 88%.

    Snapp closes the book with one chapter listing all the things heart sisters dont do (and why) and another listing things heart sisters do. Both of these chapters summarize concisely what shes taught throughout the rest of the book, so theyll make a great quick reference for readers who want to practice integrating the concepts from this book into their lives.

    In this book, Snapp shares her personal experiences as she shares the lessons she has learned. If you are looking for ways to strengthen the friendships you have or to develop some new ones, if you want to learn how to "be the friend you want to have," if you are more interested in encouraging and supporting other women than you are comparing and competing with other women, you will find solid suggestions throughout this book.

    I received a complimentary eCopy of Heart Sisters from the publisher in exchange for this honest review.

    I am in love with this book having many acquaintances and very few friends, this book has been a real eye opener to me.

    there are many reasons why I choose not to have very close friends, however being hurt, of course is the main reason. I mean really hurt. Can we say skeered??? I am terrified of having a close female friend,

    The pain I have suffered is monumental, so much that I have had to seek peace. Has it worked? Oh no, not at all. Im a very jealous, scared, sad human being. Have I asked for forgiveness for what I contributed? Of course, have I given my forgiveness? I honestly thought I had.

    Heart Sisters has made me realize that I have no more given my forgiveness than the man in the moon. I am a wimp. A God-Fearing, non forgiving wimp.

    So I have been in prayer about these things and I know that my role is to seek out and forgive. However, at the place in my heart now, I cant. Some of the women, I have not forgiven, some I have just not asked, and some, I just didnt think I needed too.

    So I ask from my readers, to please pray for me. Pray that I God can give me the courage to truly forgive in my heart. I mean truly forgive in my heart. Then I need to go to these people. Please ask God for that also.

    I have been completely and utter stunned about my response to this because I was truly sure that I was over this and had done the right thing.

    There are so many things that this book has given me the tools to be able to forgive. I pray that its sun because I know that God will be happy with me when its done.

    Obviously you can tell that I liked the book. Well, other than the stepping on the toes, and the slapping in the face, and the 24 up to the head Thank you Natalie!

    The book has great resources, including discussion questions, pictures, interviews, room to journal and so much more.

    This little book is packed with so many resources.

    First, I cannot thank God enough for giving me the friends I have,

    Second, I cant thank Natalie enough for writing this book

    Third, I cannot thank my friends that I have enough for putting up with me, warts and all. Thanks for being there through everything and giving me the support that you do.

    God is good and I promise you that this book will give you the resources you need, if you have a relationship that needs mended, or even if you dont.

    Once we humble ourselves to the Lord, humbling ourselves to others becomes a bit easier. humility is the key that unlocks hearts. Natalie Chambers Snapp

    this book is amazing and I strongly suggest you either go buy it, enter this contest, or ask me to borrow it!! I will send it to anyone on their kindle!

    I absolutely loved "Heart Sisters" and Natalie's spirit and heart that she shares in this book. Throughout life we have friends, friends of varying kinds and degrees of closeness. Some of these friends may become life long friends, while others are friends for a season. However, sometimes in the busyness of life it may feel as if there is no time for friends; however there is a longing and need for friends. I feel like I needed this book and what it said as I find myself caught up in the busyness in life and hard to really give friendships that attention that is required to be a good friend. I loved the layout of this book with the space to journal and the discussion questions. This is an excellent read and I highly recommend this for all women to read. And really who could resist this cover?!

    This is a great book for women concerned about their relationships with other women. Maybe you've sworn off friendships because you have been deeply hurt. Maybe you're seeking an authentic relationship. This book has a vast amount of information and encouragement to help you establish the friendships God has for you.

    Expecting your husband to fulfill all your emotional needs is setting him up for failure, Snapp writes. Women are relationship seekers and need women friends. Before we set out on that friendship quest, we must be right with God. Getting right with God is a crucial step before we can get right with anyone else. She reminds us that we have a God-shaped hole inside of us that we cannot expect human friends to fill.

    Snapp covers just about every topic on friendship. She looks at the lies we might believe, keeping us from authentic relationships, and also how we can get back on track. She shares how she reached out for friends when she and her husband moved to a new community. She shows how Jesus is our model. She writes about the roles friends have in our lives, about the types of friends there are and how they relate to us.

    She has an excellent section on how friends function, ministering to each other. She has great suggestions on making it through conflict (and it will come). She emphasizes the need for forgiveness and humility. She has a really good section on boundaries, what they are and are not. She gives practical suggestions on how to use technology wisely. She also has many ideas on directing our daughter's trajectory when it comes to relationships, including topics like bullying. She also writes about women working together in ministry.

    She emphasizes that friends will not show up on our door step. We might have to get outside of our comfort zone, do things that might even scare us, to find friends. She reminds us it can take years to form the kind of friendship she discusses. She concludes her book with a great section on what friends do and don't do.

    This is an excellent book for women in authentic friendship or wanting to be in them. She has included discussion questions at the end of each chapter so this would be a good book for a group of women looking to make deep friendships.

    Heart Sisters are essential to our mental, physical, and spiritual growth, she writes. She has also provided additional resources at her own website.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book through Litfuse for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
