Friendship for Grown-Ups by Lisa Whelchel

This book was provided for review by BookSneeze.

Friendship for Grown-Ups by Lisa Whelchel (yes, THAT Lisa Whelchel) was so consuming to me that I read it in one two-hour sitting. Lisa fearlessly reveals her insecurities and opens her heart to share how she grew into a person capable of having meaningful friendships and not just surface level acquaintances. Through her personal stories you'll see how she's matured both in the Lord and in her own life. What once was a scared little girl (even as an adult) is now a woman who is walking with confidence and is helping teach others to do the same. Lisa writes with humor and is so real that I found myself wanting to respond to her. I know that this book will help others shed their fear of letting new (and old) friends into their world.

About the book:

Former Facts of Life star Lisa Whelchel shares her experiences of growing up without true friends and how she learned to find and develop them as an adult through God's grace.

Not many people can say they lived their most crucial developmental years on the sound stage of a wildly popular TV show. But that's exactly what happened in Lisa Whelchel's life. As a child, she learned to guard her heart so tightly to avoid true hurt that she found herself unable to form lasting friendships as an adult.

Friendship for Grown-Ups details her experiences of learning to come out of her shell, to trust, risk, and become vulnerable by God's grace and find meaningful friendships. Readers encounter her captivating story and refreshing perspective on life's most precious gift—and they find practical tips for their own friendships along the way.
