Friends Forever – The Art of Lifetime Relationships by Janet Chester Bly
The challenge of nurturing long-term, lifetime relationships. Loving another human is not the easiest thing to do. But there are rewards for real connections, whether inside or outside the friend or family circle. Friends Forever discusses doing relationships God’s way.
“Friendship with God doesn’t automatically produce the ability to get along with people. But wanting to is one big step forward. In the world, risking relationships means fullness of life as God intended it. His grace to a lonely, fallen creation.”
— Janet Chester Bly, Friends Forever
