This week I’m blogging over at Club 31 Women about why our girlfriends are so important.
Here’s a snippet:
Recently I had the privilege of spending 4 days with 18 young writers. Each is a part of the blog team for Club31Women
We laughed, cried, studied the word, shared deeply and had a blast together. We came away refreshed and probably not quite ready to go home to the responsibilities of children and real life!
Our time together reminded me again of how important it is to have girlfriends.
Friendship is an important Biblical principle. We were created for relationships. The Trinity is the ultimate example of relationships: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The scriptures are filled with stories of close friendships. Moses had Aaron and Hur; David had Jonathan; Paul had Silas and Barnabas, and Paul calls Timothy “my true son in the faith. “(1 Timothy 1:2). Jesus himself had the 12 disciples and of the these, he had 3 “best buds,” Peter, James, and John.
