    This book saved me from myself in friendships!

    This book was so helpful in pointing out some key misunderstandings I was holding about friendship. After reading this book, I feel so freed up to engage in friendship because I do not have the weight of these misunderstandings burdening me. I realize better my limits in friendship, my role in friendship, and having my needs ultimately met in Christ. Adult friendships are so hard and there are no other books out there addressing friendship in this way. The world needs to read this book. So worth above and beyond the cost of the book.

    Freedom from Codependent Friendships

    Kelly Needham’s book speaks straight to the root of a problem I hardly realized was problematic for me and many of my peers. Her timely word on the importance of selfless, “others-focused” friendships is far more (but certainly not less) than a self-help book for codependents seeking freedom from relationship addiction. It also isn’t a “how to make friends” manual either, so both of my initial presuppositions about the book were quickly debunked. Kelly, in the book, writes poignantly in a way that points her readers to look to Christ for dependency and purpose and she draws attention to the unseen and hardly recognized idolatry between same sex and guy-girl relationships. She shows how, from a biblical standpoint, living a friend-dependent existence creates expectations and commitments that only marriage was meant to fulfill. Kelly rightly points readers to the Christ, the one who established marriage, to show our ultimate need for satisfying dependency on Him alone! I’m so grateful for this book and would recommend it to believers who think there might be something wrong with their relationships (and also those of us who assumed we had everything right...).

    Gospel Hope for Friendship

    What I expected from this book was to learn some tips for how to be a better friend. What I got from the book was so much more - ultimately that our friendship with Christ meets all of our needs and satisfies our thirsty souls. However, though all of our needs are met in Jesus, we were created for relationships! It is indeed not good for man to be alone! This book is such a helpful tool in balancing those two dichotomies and answering questions regarding friendship that I didn’t know I had! Needham’s insights, honesty, and vulnerability are both refreshing and comforting as she speaks truth in love and helps me to see sin that I didn’t know I had. If you’d like gospel hope for navigating friendships, this book is for you.
