Heart Sisters by Natalie Chambers Snapp #Review and Girls Night out #Giveaway

unnamed-9

I’ve definitely had my share of ups and downs in the friendship department. It took years of heartache and pain to figure out what a real friendship looks like and what it doesn’t. There were so many times I wish I had an instruction manual! Now that I’ve read Heart Sisters by Natalie Chambers Snapp, I kind of think of it as exactly that!

She goes into what real friendships are and how to deal with things like conflict and life changes that are sure to arise. Since most of my friends are moms, it seems like we’ve taken turns having babies over the last several years and it can really have an affect on the friendship. So how do you handle that? What do you do when natural life changes put distance between you.

In my experience, it’s been my real friendships that have withstood the test of time; the good, the bad and the ugly. There is one in particular that stands out that we’ve experienced five pregnancies between the two of us, conflict caused by someone else and all the ups and downs between. In this friendship we were able to sit down and talk about the conflict, the changes, the distance and feelings like two adults. It takes two people that are rational, committed to the friendship that are able to speak freely to make a friendship last.

To me that has been the key: honesty. If I can’t tell you how I feel without you being offended and not listening to what my heart is saying instead of getting instantly defensive; the friendship is probably not going to last. Unfortunately, I learned this the hard way. I wish I’d had this book several years ago because it certainly would have saved me some heartache.

Sometimes you just need a little direction; kind of like a road map. I really appreciated Snapp’s insights and thoughts into handling all of these things and more. I feel like as a woman who has been there, she really gets it and is able to share her own experiences. Heart Sisters is a definite must read for all women who really are about having a strong friendship that stands the test of time. With Mothers Day just around the corner, what better gift to give than the gift of friendship? Even better, enter to win the girls night out below!
