God uses people in our life, such as friends, as signposts to showing us God's love for us. I love this quote by Henri Nouwen illustrating the importance and gift of have friends.We need friends.

Always wanting to do something just a little better than I currently am. Always dreaming of making a difference in some way. Always struggling against the desire for validation. Always fighting reminders that I am just not good enough. I am thankful that the fight has already been won and e»

In the “Creating a Gospel-Centered Marriage: Decision Making” seminar we teach through the outline below in chapter four. Friendship is about more than liking the same things and agreeing on how things should be done; otherwise “opposites attract” would be jeered as an oxymoron instead of an accepted proverb.

Here is a single page handout for this material – Approach to Consensus Decision Making. A large portion of marital decisions will be made as friends through the process of consensus.

The largest portion of your joint marital decisions will be made as friends through the process of consensus. This is how two individuals begin to shape “our life” together that represents the new “we” more than the individual “me’s.” As a couple grows in their knowledge and sacrifice for another, this arena of decision making should become the significant majority of their shared decision making. Consensus should be the default app»

It’s National Friend Month and the internet is flooded with articles that will give you tips for improving your friendships.
