Soul Friends

August 13, 2018

Friendship. That group of ladies that you connect with. You laugh together, you share stories together, and you go shopping together. But do you truly connect? Most friendships only go skin deep, so how do you get those friendships to push past that barrier and get into a deeper meaningful friendship?
Sisters that pray together, read the Word together are a force that cannot be reckoned with. In this book she share personal stories and reflections that can help us strengthen the friendships God has created for each of our lives.
In Soul Friends you will explore four stages of spiritual growth that will propel your friendships in the right direction:
1. Quest: This is a recognition of ones own adventure and involves finding the treasure of Gods will and, in the process, becoming a treasure for those we know and love. 
2. Calling: Gods action plan for the traveler requires humility, for we are ever in the process of being stretched as we depend on God and the sustenance of our soul friends along the way. 
3. Crisis: We travel an unknown road and find grace to meet the challenges. Dr. Parrotts account reads like excerpts from a spiritual journal as she walks beside those who battle cancer, mourn the loss of a child, absorb the news of unexpected pregnancy, or manage the decline of a beloved parent. 
4. Communion: The command to love one another is the essence and the destination of our spiritual journey. Travelling with soul friends, the expedition transcends the ordinary, yielding fruit that remains, (John 15). 
I recommend this book for those whose deepest desire is to have true godly friendships that will help you grow closer to God and your lady friends.
