Friendships with other women are as important to our mental, physical, and spiritual health as rest, exercise, and prayer. We don't just want friends--we need friends. God created us for relationship. Yet despite being more connected than ever before, we struggle to feel connected. From the false intimacy of social media to busyness and relational conflict, there are many challenges to developing authentic relationships.
If you've ever been hurt by a friend, struggled to balance friendship with everyday life, seen a friendship end too early, or longed for deeper and more authentic friendships, this Bible study is for you. As Natalie leads you in a deep exploration of timeless truths in the Old and New Testaments, you will learn how to develop and nurture the kind of enriching and satisfying friendships that build up the body of Christ and bring honor to God. Personal testimonies and stories of successes and failures add a level of authenticity that is refreshing and insightful. As you learn to cultivate God-honoring relationships, you will become more like Christ and demonstrate His love to a broken world.
Study participants will find deep study of Scripture's principles for God-honoring friendships help for navigating conflict, setting boundaries, and learning to forgive in-depth study of Scripture with testimonies and stories that "ring true," the do's and don'ts of authentic friendships and Bible-based guidance for building stronger and deeper relationships.
The DVD contains six video segments featuring Natalie's dynamic teaching (approximately 20-25 minute each) for use during the group sessions, and offers closed captioning.
Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook, Leader Guide, and boxed Leader Kit.
