      Reviewed at The Power of Words: bit/1Wos2mKI tend to be an introvert, so this book really spoke to me. Not that I don’t have friends, because I do; but I often fail to stay connected with them like I should. In fact, I wasn’t very far into this collection before I stopped to phone and write notes to a few of those special people in my life, and was greatly blessed as a result.The Gift of Friendship is an inspirational collection from several of today’s popular writers, edited by Dawn Camp, [...]

    2. Kristin on said:

      “The Gift of Friendship” is of full stories by different writers that prompted me to reminisce on moments I’ve shared with my own friends. Community is worth celebrating and that’s what this book does beautifully. There are stories of heartache redeemed, surprise friendships, and everyday community that reinforced my belief we really are better together.

    3. Stacie on said:

      I couldn't possibly get through life without my girlfriends. I have friends that I've known since childhood, friends from college that I've reconnected with because our kids are in the same school, best friends and casual friends, and friends for all seasons of my life. Each one fills a need in my heart and knows just what to say or do at just the right time. When we moved to this small community over twelve years ago, I was nervous about leaving my friends behind, knowing that with some of them [...]

      (This review is also posted on Mama Bear Reads at mamaandthebears)I grew up as a military brat. I traveled the world with my family up until I was in high school. I went to 16 different schools, and lived numerous places. I made friends with ease and had quite a bit of social confidence.Then something happened. What, I am not sure, but that confidence is no longer there. There is honestly nothing I struggle with more than making friends. I feel incredibly awkward in any social setting, I'd rathe [...]

      Camp now returns with 'The Gift of Friendship', once again gathering the best writers from around the Christian blogosphere to write on ''stories that celebrate the beauty of shared moments".To be forthright, I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book. 'Friendship' still has a comfortable, "Chicken Soup for the Soul" vibe to it and blessedly (for this mom of a newborn) all the entries were short. However, I didn't feel that their stories/words struck me as profound. None of them truly jumped ou [...]

      I was blessed to read this book as part of the launch team. I loved this book and it came at the most perfect time. A time when I am struggling to form new friendships as a 30 year old. Oftentimes, when people have to form new friendships later in life, it is because they have moved to a new town. In my case, it is the opposite; I have stayed in my town and all my friends have moved away. It is hard making friends as an adult. I can honestly say every single story in this book touched me in some [...]

    7. Nicole on said:

      This book is just what I needed right now in my season of new beginnings. The Gift of Friendship is a reminder and encouragement of the importance of surrounding and maintaining good friendships. I read this book in ebook format but feel it is most appropriately kept in a physical copy. Filled with short stories or excerpts from Christian women, this book will be your push to connect when you become complacent.

    8. Elizabeth on said:

      I just finished this darling little book. It was like sitting down with a cup of hot tea and reminiscing with your oldest friends. Relationships are always full of hill and valleys, and this collection of women and their stories show the tapestry of relationships in an engaging and familiar way. I have hit a strange point in my life where it feels like making new friends is more work than its worth, and this book has really challenged me to look for people I can touch even if we only meet for "a [...]

      I enjoyed this collection of blog posts about all kinds of friendships. Most of the short reads make you smile and think about your own friends, how you met, how long you have been friends, and what keeps you friends. At the end of each read is a quote about friendship. Here’s one of my favorites: You can trust us to stick to you through thick or thin- to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secrets of yours- closer than you yourself keep it. But you cannot trust us to let you face [...]

      This book was very lovely, all about friendship but it focused too much on religion.

    11. Jen Bradbury on said:

      My favorite comedy is Friends, I think because for years, I longed for the kind of close-knit friendships depicted in the show. Thanks to an amazing small group experience a decade ago, I found those kinds of friends – friends that have been with me through thick and thin, through job changes and moves, and through miscarriages and birth. They've challenged my faith, carried it when it's been nearly gone, and held hope for me when I thought it, too, had all but disappeared. It's these friends [...]

    12. Julia on said:

      I read Dawn’s words in the introduction of her new book, The Gift of Friendship: Don’t let anyone tell you that a friendship that begins online lacks a foundation. Treasure friendship in whatever form it comes. I wanted to weep. Instead, my mind kept repeating: Someone understands! while I smiled to myself. It’s difficult to explain to people how close you can become to others through having a blog. Though it doesn’t happen immediately, I think it may have something to do with sharing ou [...]

      The Gift of Friendship was a truly inspiring book for me. I don't always think that about a collection of short anecdotes and personal sharing about a topic, but this was different. Dawn Camp, the editor of this book, is an (in)courage contributor, and along with other (in)courage contributors and some other well known online figures, she aims to reveal stories about how much one really needs a friend.The book deals with different topics all having to do with an aspect of friendship. Whether it' [...]

      Thank You for Being My FriendTHANK YOU FOR READING THIS REVIEW ON MY BLOG: bookreadingtic/2016/02/26/Do you remember what you did the last time you were with a friend? You can probably recite where you were, and how you felt about it, even if it was long ago. No doubt that memory will cause you to recall other times you were with a friend, too. Friendships with others are important to us, whether it is with someone you haven't known for long, or with someone that goes back for years. This book e [...]

      When I first picked up the book "The Gift of Friendship: Stories That Celebrate the Beauty of Shared Moments" (edited by Dawn Camp), I was impressed by the list of contributors (Lisa-Jo Baker, Holley Gerth, Liz Curtis Higgs, Jennifer Dukes Lee, Renee Swope, Lysa Terkeurst and the list goes on) but wondered if it would have more fluff than heart and meat. Yet when I started reading it, I could not put it down.This book celebrates the beauty of friendships of many types, encourages you to remember [...]

      The Gift of Friendship is a collection of blog posts from various authors, speakers, and bloggers on the topic of friendship. Centered around topics like “Building Community,” “It Takes a Friend to Be a Friend,” “Friendship on Purpose,” and “Vulnerability,” each essay Camp gathered follows the typical Blog formula: easy to read, a few lines of self-deprecating humor, and a quick message. None of it gets too deeply, but much of it makes you smile. And none of them will take you mo [...]

      This lovely book is like a conference in book form. The chapters are short but poignant, and each are written by sweet women who bear their hearts and souls with their words. I laughed, I cried, I highlighted – what more could I possibly ask for. This isn’t my regular non-fiction, self-help book. It’s remarkably different both in style and in content. This is a book that makes you feel in the deepest places within yourself. As I read through the stories contained in this book (which are as [...]

      "We need our people. We need friends standing in our corner, cheering us on, believing in us. We need listening ears, shares of inside jokes, keepers of secrets. We need those who laugh when we laugh, cry when we cry, and then pass the chips and salsaat's the gift of friendship." - Dawn Camp (19)Well said, Dawn.

      Only a few pages into this book and I already knew my opinion of it. Wonderful!!!I was barely a few pages and and automatically I was thinking of my friendships, both past and present. I recently connected with a close friend from my childhood days on Facebook and was flooded with a wealth of memories that were sosweet that they made me homesick. We have both moved from our hometown, but I was heartsick to go back to the time and placewhen we wadded in the creek, ran down gravel roads, played do [...]

      "The Gift of Friendship" is an inspirational book written by Dawn Camp, a forward by Jennifer Dukes Lee (popular blogger), with friendship tips from other inspiring women. The book is about different aspects of being a friend. Being an old friend, a new friend and how to build those relationships. I believe the theme of this book could be summed up in these words by Jennifer Dukes Lee, "We are better together."I like how the cover speaks of friendship; just sitting and relaxing. Just being yours [...]

      I received a copy of The Gift of Friendship: Stories that Celebrate the Beauty of Shared Moments edited by Dawn Camp, from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I found that many of these stories were geared towards busy mothers in need of a caring friend. Although I don’t fall into that specific set I was able to relate to many of the things mentioned throughout The Gift of Friendship. In fact I had quite a profound reading experience as I made my way through the pages. Although it [...]

      I don't often read collections of stories but this cover grabbed my attention along with the topic of friendship. I've lived in 5 cities since I graduated college 10 years ago. All of those moves were by choice but moving that much makes friendships challenging. Reading this book made me think back to the special people from each time in my life. But it also made me long for that same level of friendship where we live now - both for myself and my husband. There was one story in particular that r [...]

      The Gift of Friendship: Stories That Celebrate the Beauty of Shared Moments is a compilation of essays about friendship among women. The book is edited by Dawn Camp, and features stories from writers including Camp, Becky Keife, Sarah Forgrave, and many more. The book reminded me of something you might see in the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series. The essays were heartfelt, and they were written in genuine, down-to-earth ways. One of my favorite essays was “In which I tell the truth about [...]

      This is a lovely book full of encouraging little stories that really blessed me and made me smile. The stories are easy to relate to and it was comforting to see that some of the things I've been through, others have, too. I loved the comfort each story brought with Scriptures and other quotes. There are also beautiful black and white photos throughout that just make the book that much more enjoyable. So many of the authors are my favorites and their writing is excellent and Biblical.This book e [...]
