Yes, they're different. They probably like different music, clothing and hair styles, etc. But, they are still women and are in a place older women have been before. It is time to break down the barriers and befriend the younger women, not with a pushy attitude, but with grace, gentleness, and example. When we seek God and ask Him to direct every aspect of our lives, HE will open the doors and offer the opportunities. We who are older simply need to follow His lead. Friendship is hard anytime, but it is so worth the work. Mentoring requires time and effort, but the product is amazing. Reach out to other women today and see how your life will change.
I really enjoyed this book. I am an older woman and enjoy being around my younger friends. It wasn't always easy, but I was on the other side too. This book makes sense and offers gentle helps on how to be the friend and mentor God wants you to be. So, if you are a woman seeking to be the best friend you can be, this book is for you. I received my review copy from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
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.
