Shared Friendship: Inspiration for a Woman's Heart Reviews
Shared Friendship is a lovely little gift book, filled with short inspirational stories and quotations about the nature of friendship from well-known Christian authors such as Fanny Crosby, Stomie Omartian, Corrie Ten Boom and Shelia Walsh. Shared Friendship is a nice book, but probably something I would buy for myself, but it would make a lovely Christmas or birthday gift for a friend or relation (it even has a To/From page at the beginning). It is probably best shared as a 'real' book - I think the ebook version loses some of the impact.Each page has a scripture quotation, followed by a short excerpt on different aspects of friendship. It can be read one passage at a time, in sequence, by theme, by bible verse (there is a Scripture Index at the back) or simply by opening randomly. Examples of topics include ‘What is a True Friend?’, ‘What Friends are For’ and ‘Friends Bring Happiness’. It’s not really a book that you read from cover to cover in one sitting – more a book that you read a couple of pages a day or look over when having one of ‘those’ days! Shared Friendship is published by Circle of Friends Minstries, a non-profit organisation established to “build a pathway for women to come into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and build Christian unity among women”, to evangelise women locally, nationally and internationally. Thanks to NetGalley and Circle of Friends Ministries for providing an ebook to review.This review will also be published on my blog, www.christianreads.blogspot.com.
Friendship is hard to define these days what with all of us having "friends" on Facebook who are often people we have never met. I will admit to having "friends" I've never met...some are fellow bloggers and some are authors whose writing I admire. True friendship is harder to define. We all have so many acquaintances who we may call friends but can you call on them in the tough times? I have friends who are people I've known almost my entire life. Do I see them daily or talk to them frequently..no. But when I need a true friend I know I can count on their support.This lovely devotional which will be published on August 1st focuses on friendship. This book understands that while a woman's most important human relationship will be with her spouse, a woman needs the support and love of her good friends. In the introduction, it points out that "Who can understand the heart of a woman - with all its joys and triumphs, challenges and heartaches - better than another woman". Each devotion begins with bible scripture which is then supported with a devotional written by one of the women involved with the Circle of Friends Ministry and other women authors. There is a brief biography of each contributing author at the end of the book as well as a Scripture Index.This inspiring devotional would be a lovely gift from one friend to another.
I have been reading this as my devotion book for the past couple of weeks. This book is really great for women that want to celebrate their friendships. The passages are applicable to many different situations and I think there is something in there for everyone. I really loved that the submissions came from such a varied group of women as well. I highly recommend it for women's Sunday school classes, devotional groups, prayer groups, or just as a gift for a friend!
