"In an era when many women struggle with feelings of isolation and deep loneliness, Girls' Club calls us to embrace the delight and joy that can be found in life-giving female friendships--relationships that not only offer emotional affirmation and acceptance, but also inspire, educate, and stretch us to live out our God-given potential. Girls' Club is a book of stories and encouragement based on the experiences of the authors: a middle-aged mom, her newly married oldest daughter, and her youngest daughter, a single woman in graduate school. While there are many books on women's friendships that tout the message of "meeting each other in the mess," Girls' Club will speak to the value and satisfaction found through friendships in which women not only support each other emotionally but also encourage each other to become more excellent women. Girls' Club will encourage women to take the initiative to seek out other women with whom to share life and to be blessed with the gift of deep friendship"--
