Today we are all telling our stories about what it feels like to trust a friend. And not trust a friend. It’s a project I’ve been working on for nearly a year now.
You’re invited. Just as you are. It’s a free webcast showing four different times today. Come just as you are and be encouraged.
So let’s spend our five minutes of writing today, sharing about friendship. Fight it, love it, hate it, hurt or healed by it, we were certainly built for it.
Set a timer and just write. Don’t worry about making it just right or not.
Go all in with your words.
Are you ready?

When I was in 2nd grade I met a friend. My first real good friend. She didn't speak very good English, was a refugee from the Vietnam War but somehow we connected and we became friends. We are still friends. We don't talk a lot but I know where she is if I need her and she knows where I am if she needs me. I love her story of survival. She taught me to love soy sauce on my eggs. She is now married to a great guy and has 2 beautiful kids. She was my very first friend.
I met another friend in Jr. High and she was my best friend all the way through high school. We are still friends and I adore her! Life has been rough for her but she is strong and a fighter for joy and loves to laugh in the heartache of life. I am proud of her!
I have a church friend from those youth group days. She has traveled this world and has been shaped by those experiences. There is a bond with her that cannot be broken. We have too much history together. We could talk for hours. I miss her. But she is always a phone call away. I treasure our last dinner together overlooking the ocean. I can count on her to be there for me whenever I need her. She is fierce in love for her friends. I feel that.
I have church friends. My prayer warriors. Those I worship beside. My sisters. My cry-on-the-couch buddies. Together we are figuring out who we are in Christ. Something happens in life when you become a mom and you forget who you are. We are learning who we are in Christ at a much deeper level than we have ever known. Our happy ever after love stories are being discovered as we fall in love together with our Lord.
