How can we cultivate authentic friendships with other women? What does it look like to be a good friend, to find good friends and to build strong friendships? We’re all looking for close friendships but what are some guidelines for building strong relationships?
Author and speaker Amanda Anderson and I talk about how to be vulnerable in relationships without over-sharing, toxic relationships, boundaries in friendships, what keeps us from being real in friendships, and other often-not-talked-about issues.
We were made to live in community and to share together. Join us for this insightful conversation on some helpful advice on how to grow friendships with other women in a God-honoring way.
