The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

The Gift of Friendship Book Review

Stories that Celebrate the Beauty of Shared Moments

SUMMARY:  Sharing secrets. Laughing until it hurts. Hugging through tears.  True friends are one of God's greatest gifts.
     Whether next door or in the next time zone, our friends are some of our most vital relationships. We cherish time spent together and look forward to the next time we can solve the world's problems over coffee.  There is something about a true friend that no other relationship can touch.  
     Collecting over fifty true stories from some of today's best writers, Dawn Camp offers you a chance to sit back and experience the gift of friendship.  With its beautiful photographs and poignant prose, this collection is the perfect pic-me-up anytime you need a boost.
     You'll cherish these stories of true friendship from Lisa-Jo Baker, Holley Gerth, Bonnie Gray, Liz Curtis Higgs, Jennifer Dukes Lee, Tsh Oxenreider, Crystal Paine, Myquillyn Smith, Renee Swope, Lysa TerKeurst, Jessica Turner, and many more.
 REVIEW:  This book shows the bond between old friends, the uneasiness of opening up to new friends, and can helps those who do not appear friendly but who desperately want/need a friend.  The stories are short.  Some will have you laughing; others, grabbing your box of Kleenex.  The authors of these short stories are open and honest about their relationships with their friends.  Some have even stepped out of their comfort zone of aloneness and reached out, wanting what others around them have.  This is an excellent book for those friends who are close to you or for one you would like to know better.
