Do you put on a happy face to disguise feelings of sadness, loneliness, or depression? You're not alone. In fact, nearly half of all women say they are still searching for one authentic friendship in their church body.
Best-selling author Dannah Gresh knows the transforming power that will turn your life into a glorious adventure with God. In this book, she reveals the secret of the Lord, gently leading you on a journey from an "I'm so exhausted, depleted, and empty" existence to a life that exceeds your wildest dreams . . . that fills you up to the fullest.

sherri letchford5 Stars Out Of 5March 24, 2006sherri letchfordI loved this book! It's a fast read, but one that you'll want to come back to over and over again. Dannah's writing is very real. She's taken a simple verse and applied it to all of us in a fresh, new way.
Laura5 Stars Out Of 5December 30, 2005LauraThis book clashes with cultural norms of busyness, selfishness and shallow hello's. Dannah sets the pace by being vulnerable and sharing Biblical wisdom that inspires the reader to prioritize authentic relationships with other women in the Church. She encourages us to pursue the mission that God has planned for us. Dannah's writing is effortless and her wisdom is attractive. Even though I wanted to read right through the book, taking the time to write out the answer to each "It's Your Turn" section became a way for me to discover why God was having me read the book! He showed me a part of my life mission and revealed qualities in me - that I had overlooked - that He wants to use for His glory.This book applies to all Christian women, regardless of age, denomination, and background. It's an effective personal experience and would be a powerful group book study. I'm deeply grateful to Dannah for writing this book. You will be, too.
Kathy Porter5 Stars Out Of 5December 30, 2005Kathy PorterEvery chapter in this book spoke to my heart. She reveals how critical confession is in the believer's life and how God resists the proud. I felt challenged to live a more open and truthful life and to resist the "fear of man". It has impacted my selfview and has helped me in my quest to find my identity in Christ.
Jackie H5 Stars Out Of 5December 30, 2005Jackie HI have not finished this book yet but felt compelled to share my thoughts anyway...it has already brought healing into my life from an incident that took place 7 years ago that I never really understood until now. With His hand guiding my pen, God had me write an overdue letter to a very close friend, responding to it and opening up more of me in it to my friend and through this letter has brought healing to me and even to my marriage! Thank you Dannah for following after God's heart!
