Book Review: Friendship for Grown-Ups

What woman my age (still  holding on to the 30's, thank you) doesn't remember "The Facts of Life" on TV?  Didn't you wish you were right there living with Blair and Tootie? 

Most of you know that (Blair) Lisa Whelchel grew up to be a minister's wife and major supporter of homeschooling and Christian parenting.  What you may not know is that she went through a major life journey a few years ago.  Turns out the picture perfect life we saw on TV was not reality for Lisa or the other girls on the show.

Friendship for GrownUps is the story she wrote about her struggle to discover both why she kept her friends at a distance and how to tear down the wall she kept around herself to make true connections with other women.  I absolutely loved this book and saw myself and other women that are and have been a part of my life reflected in her story.

I would recommend this book to women without reservations.
