Friendship for Grownups by Lisa Whelchel

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Do you struggle in your friendships? I know I have from time to time. Lisa Whelchel ("Blair" from the TV show "Facts of Life") has written a book about her struggles with dealing with friendship.  Most of the book is her story of  giving and receiving frienship.  The last part of the book has self-help sections such as discussion questions, practical steps for developing friendships, and conversation prompts.

I enjoyed reading the book, but I have to admit that for me there were just too many stories of her frienships and how she dealt with them.  Maybe they were just too honest.  I found it hard to read about the ups and downs.  But it did give me hope in the sense that I am not the only one that has struggles in this area.  We all go through positive and negative relationships in our lives. I appreciate Lisa's candid descriptions of the friendships that she has been a part of. She is a huge fan of Henry Cloud's books.  I am, too.  So I could totally relate to what she was saying since I am familiar with the concepts in his books.  Lisa does give advice and ideas on how to grow friendships.

Thomas Nelson has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it. I am not required to give a positive review. All my opinions are my own.
