"A Friend in Me"

Book info
About the book:
A Friend in Me (David C. Cook, June 2015)

Young women long for relational connection with women further ahead of them on the journey. Yet, without realizing it, many of us tend to distance ourselves from those in younger generations.

Can we really have close relationships with women who have different thoughts on church, different experiences with family, and different ways of talking about God? Where do we start?

In A Friend in Me, Pam Lau shows you how to be a safe place for the younger women in your life. She offers five patterns women need to internalize and practice for initiating relationships and talking about issues such as faith, forgiveness, sexuality, and vocation. Most significantly, she reminds you that there doesn't need to be a divide between generations of women. Together, we can have a global impact---and experience a deeper faith than we've ever known.

My Review:
I really enjoyed Pamela Lavey Lau's book, "A Friend In Me" as it is thought-provoking and overall a guide for creating and maintaining a relationship as a mentor to a younger woman.  Growing up is difficult and is even more so when you feel alone, meaning you have no one you feel that you can go to with anything on your heart and mind.  This book addresses the concept of being a safe haven for women younger than you whom need guidance and someone they can talk with as needed.  Pamela also shares the need for these relationships and women being willing to be this type of person. This was an eye-opener but also gave me a clearer understanding of how I can be this type of person with some women whom I interact with and how I can be more of a friend and help.
