Product Description

“How are you?”
 
“Fine.”
 
In today’s busy world, we’re wired to appear “fine,” warding off authenticity and shielding ourselves from judgment. We hide behind the hum of busyness to escape intimate friendships with the women God has placed in our lives.
 
But we do want a seat at the table. We yearn for authentic relationships and the opportunity to be the opposite of “fine” with people who cheer for us. But comparison, envy, and entitlement often stop us from pulling out a chair at the table. Friendship can be hard, making new friends even harder, and maintaining genuine friendship the hardest of all.
 
In this 7-session Bible study, Lisa-Jo Baker and friends from (in)courage explore our relationship with Jesus as the ultimate model for authentic friendship. Nothing shapes us like the impact of a friend—it’s how Jesus radically and intimately connects with us. So instead of chasing perfection, overcome your fear of being known and find the courage to connect.

Features:
  • Leader helps to guide questions and discussions within small groups
  • Personal study segments to complete between 7 weeks of group sessions
 
Benefits:
  • Explore your relationship with Jesus as a model for friendship.
  • Debunk the myth of effortless friendship.
  • Overcome the fear of knowing and being known.
  • Stop running from friendship and find the courage to connect.

I''m almost finished with this bible study and I am the leader. I am leading this over the lunch hour at my work so I appreciate how quickly we can get through the videos and have time for a good discussion. I''m surprised that some reviewers felt this was for age 30 and below. The women at the table are from all walks of life. Some of the main points that stuck out to me was overlooking hurts, serving your friends, forgiveness. No, these are not new ideas, but I do think we need reminders. If you''ve read the whole bible then it doesn''t contain "new" ideas either but the point is that when you study it over and over the Holy Spirit reveals something new to you. The same with this study, the content isn''t revolutionary but it does prick your conscience on areas you need to work on. I loved doing this at work because I got to know Christian women that I did not know well before and I''ve been able to have conversations with them that I would not otherwise been able to help. I loved how freely everyone spoke about their experiences and we could laugh. Nothing feels better then another person saying"Me too, i''ve been there"

This is an extremely easy study. I hesitate to take on a meatier study with exetensive homework. I believe some of the Beth Moore studies are rather in depth. This is perfect because there are only like 3 days of homework. It''s less intimidating to those you invite to be in the study. And if you don''t get to the homework, you can STILL get a lot out of the videos and the discussion. The home work is more like a supplement and doesn''t guide the discussion. So it''s nice that people can come guilt free. I wouldn''t want that to be a deterrent. I highly recommend.

I sought out this book after reading the teenager edition with my middle school students I teach. They loved the content, and I found it valuable enough to study it in my young adult bible study with best friends. Baker makes amazing comparisons and structures lessons to readers reflect on the message while asking the reader for introspection as well. It''s easy to read and connect with. I have been able to analyze past friendship and see where my heart was, why the situations panned out like they did and more appreciate the friendships I do have. LOVE LOVE LOVE this book and definitely recommend!

I was on the launch team for Lisa Jo''s book, "Never Unfriended" so I wasn''t sure I really needed to do this Bible study. I thought it might be too similar to her book. I am so glad I decided to participate in this study. It takes a deeper look at friendship - the good, the bad and the ugly! It touched on places that I personally struggle with. It helped me heal from past hurts and have hope for my future friendships. Definitely recommend this study!!!

I''ve participated in many, many study groups over the past 30 years....and several on friendships based on what the Bible has to say...This one is fresh, kind of fun with the ''View'' style round table conversations among friends onscreen...Content of study guide not especially deep or profound...but food for thought, nonetheless. If you want a fairly light, breezy, (a little cheesy) study to work through with a group of casual friends, this might be the study for you.

Our small group of women are going to do this as a Bible study and I am greatly looking forward to it. I think the authors and video hosts have wonderful backgrounds and great resumes to be part of this book.
