Stasi Eldredge's book "Free to Be Me" helps teen girls become the young women God created them to be.
Sometimes I am absolutely amazed at how much Jesus loves people. Some days—okay, most days—people can be pretty odd. We are all living on the island of misfit toys, and most of us are not even aware that one of our wheels is in the shape of a square. We bump into each other. We step on each other’s toes, and then what is one to do?
Friendships can be hard. They are opposed by the Enemy. They need to be fought for. Anything worth having and cherishing is.
Some girls are blessed with a best friend. But most aren’t. Most of us have a few friends who provide something we need, and we provide something they need. Our hearts are met in many ways by the beautiful offerings of a few. I don’t think a human being is actually able to bear the burden of being someone’s one and only. God alone can be our One and Only.
