We’d like to invite you to join us in celebrating friendship with our blog tour kick off and another special deal on our new book The Friendship Project!

Many of you have shared with us that you desire to have close friendships in faith.  Who better to go to but the saints? From our research mixed with our own experience came The Friendship Project Book.

Please join us on our path to mercy and friendship as we tour the World Wide Web with friends from across the globe to host Friendship Friday and the countdown to book release on September 22, 2017.
