"How are you?""Fine." In today's busy world, we're wired to appear "fine," warding off authenticity and shielding ourselves from judgment. We hide behind the hum of busyness to escape intimate friendships with the women God has placed in our lives. But we do want a seat at the table. We yearn for authentic relationships and the opportunity to be the opposite of "fine" with"How are you?""Fine." In today's busy world, we're wired to appear "fine," warding off authenticity and shielding ourselves from judgment. We hide behind the hum of busyness to escape intimate friendships with the women God has placed in our lives. But we do want a seat at the table. We yearn for authentic relationships and the opportunity to be the opposite of "fine" with people who cheer for us. But comparison, envy, and entitlement often stop us from pulling out a chair at the table. Friendship can be hard, making new friends even harder, and maintaining genuine friendship the hardest of all. In this 7-session Bible study, Lisa-Jo Baker and friends from (in)courage explore our relationship with Jesus as the ultimate model for authentic friendship.

So instead of chasing perfection, overcome your fear of being known and find the courage to connect.Features: Leader helps to guide questions and discussions within small groupsPersonal study segments with homework to complete between 7 weeks of group sessionsBenefits: Explore your relationship with Jesus as a model for friendship.Debunk the myth of effortless friendship.Overcome the fear of knowing and being known.Stop running from friendship and find the courage to connect....

    The full book "Never Unfriended" is much more worth your time and more detailed in her examination of what it means to be a friend. However, the bible study version is a solid 6-week choice for a group with thoughtful questions and commentary. The videos are anedotal and repetitive to the book rather than solid content so preview and use only as you wish.

    This is more of a workbook and to really get the most out of it involves really putting work and thought into each chapter. I recommend this to anyone who has friends and wants to be the best kind of friend she can be.

    This was a great Bible Study and the application tips are practical and doable for real life. I’m not a huge fan of the friendship challenges, but the information is very useful.
