Overview
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.

Teacher and author Lau (Soul Strength) proposes a way of reinvigorating communal Christian life for older women while also providing a powerful model and resource for younger women of faith to draw on. Lau believes that younger Christian women seek closeness with those further along the path, while older women send negative messages that keep younger women from that closeness. To bridge this gap in communication, Lau prescribes comfort, understanding, forgiveness, and compassion, and shows how loving friendships that include deep conversations facilitate connection between generations. Lau is open in sharing her own struggles and the life experiences that have led her to advocate the process she proposes here. She highlights sex, friendships, and work as three areas of life that are persistently misunderstood across generations. Many Biblical references make the book most useful for those women with strong knowledge of scripture, but the case studies and techniques will be useful to any Christian woman interested in intergenerational relationships. (June)
