Dr. Leslie Parrott is speaking the heart-language of women in her new book that shares how friendships are essential for spiritual formation - for women of all ages.
In Soul Friends, Dr. Leslie Parrott brings you into an intimate and vulnerable conversation about the life-changing value of deep-spirited friendships and soul-altering relationships.
Whether it’s a new friend, a member of a small group, or a friend we’ve had for years, these soul-friends embody the grace that enables us to take a next step in the unfolding journey of our lives. God has great purpose, intention, and fulfillment in the give-and-take of deep-spirited friendships. If we purposely cultivate them, God will bring us soul-friends to help us along our spiritual journey.
Leslie reveals how every woman traverses four stages of growth—quest, calling, crisis, and communion – again and again. And whatever stage you find yourself traveling right now, you need soul friends to help you move forward.
With courageous honesty and heart-felt revelation and reflection, Leslie reminds every woman of the incredibly intimate, intricate, faith-forming work God does in her through the gift of soul friends he places in her life.
If a loved one were to show up at my door, they would find Women who Run with the Wolves and Dance of the Dissident Daughter on a table beside the bed-books that honor the warrior within. I make a point to own works of women who I want to emulate. Women whose words have nurtured my soul and spurred my creativity. I can hear their voices beckoning, "Come join me,dear friend, I have been where you are and I welcome you with open arms. You have a place here." I have always admired Leslie Parrot. Her passion for helping others build healthy, lasting relationships is evident in every word she pens. Her thoughts resonate with me like the sound of a shrill whistle from a tea pot. I think of her wisdom and I think of comfort. I hope you will too. Rating: 4.5/5 I received a copy of this book from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review
