Growing Friendships

by Jennifer Donovan

New Habits in the New YearHaving reaped the benefits of strong friendships with whom I had shared good times and who I had helped get me through bad times, I always knew that I would make the effort to make new friendships when I moved, as I have several times in my adult life. But even without a physical move, there are changes in a woman’s life that often invite–or require–us to make new friends such as leaving or reentering the workforce, changing churches, involvement in your children’s activities, and many more.

Have you been hoping to find a new friend?
Are you hoping to deepen some relationships this year?
Perhaps you want to learn more ways that you can be there for your friends, or how to enlist help when you need it.

Growing Friendships by Tracy Klehn is an excellent book. Actually, my only criticism about the book is that this is the book that I wanted to write! Tracy Klehn shares personal experiences of her own growing friendships. In each chapter she gives the reader an opportunity to reflect on areas in which she needs to improve regarding her egrowing.jpgxisting friendships or steps she needs to take to make new ones.

I think that this book could help and inspire every woman.

Some women have many friendships and know that they wouldn’t survive without them. They feel like they are good at the skill of friendship. These women will smile and nod in agreement throughout and come away with new ways to make the most of them.

A few women don’t feel the need for friendship, or at least they don’t feel like they deserve the time that it takes to develop friendships with other women. I would hope that this book would encourage these women by giving real-life of examples of the value that friendships with women add to their lives.

Other women look at the friendships that others seem to have with a bit of jealousy, as if looking in from the outside. This book will motivate them to look at the women around them and bring to mind the efforts that others have made to include them.

There’s even a study guide that you can download www.tracyklehn.com that would be a great springboard to deepening your relationship with a few women in your neighborhood or at your church.

We have five copies to give away (they can be shipped to the U.S. or Canada). If you’d like to win, please leave a comment on this post, and check out the New Habits in the New Year guidelines at this main post.

Evening, I could really use this book. I have been a stay at home mom for 19 years! I had friends, but now we have grown apart. They have jobs, children younger than me, etc. Now, that I have the time, I need to rebuild friendships. Thanks for sponsoring this contest…..Cindi

One of my friends I met in 1976. At a church function that I was introduced to friends of my longtime friend, the women were amazed that we had been friends for so long. I didn’t necessarily take the friendship for granted. I know that it is hard to maintain a friendship where one party moved out of state in 7th grade (1983) but we have been able to maintain it successfully.

I need this book TERRIBLY!! I have a tendency to close up and isolate when the things in life tend to be tough. As women, we are pulled and pushed in so many directions with our families and all of their needs, etc., that we lose sight of ‘who’ we are and tend to lose a part of ourselves each day. I believe our friendships with other women pay the cost the most when really, they are a huge part of helping us remain sane, focus on what is important, and help remind us that we aren’t alone and that there is always a friend available when needed. I am so blessed to have my friends that continually point me back in the (His!)right direction when I lose sight! I think this book would be so beneficial for me and to learn from!
Your site is amazing and I am so blessed to have found it~
