It’s not easy. When you step off the playground, out of the classroom, and into the world of career and family, friendships are harder to define, develop, and maintain. What do healthy adult friendships look like? How can you be a better friend? And is it possible for imperfect friendships to glorify God?
These are the questions that boggled my mind and burdened my heart. And when I went to God with them, He gave me answers. He used the friendships in my life and truths from His word to teach me a lot about this complex topic of friendship. Now I’m sharing the results of those lessons with you! I pray that it will bless you as you navigate the relationships in your life. These pages are filled with laughter, tears, jealousy, betrayal, joy, loss, hope – and everything else that goes along with this topic.
You’ll find answers to tough questions and insights to guide you on the winding road of friendship. Scripture, testimonies, and practical applications help you discover how to establish and maintain biblical friendships and how they can bring glory to God.

Is your day slipping by without prayer? Do you keep waiting for the perfect time or some peace and quiet? In the midst of the busyness, the stress, the to-do’s and the to-don’ts, those moments never seem to come. But they don’t have to. God gives us moments throughout our daily chaos to call out to him. We simply need to recognize them. When we do, prayer is no longer something we try to work into our day. It becomes our day.
24 Ways To Pray Through Your Day gives insight into these prayer opportunities and teaches readers two dozen ways to transform each moment of the day into time with God.
