"The Gift of Friendship came to me exactly one year after an out-of-state move. With the power and importance of human connection high on my radar, I found myself nodding, laughing, and wiping away tears with each page-turn. The beautifully crafted stories in this book reveal exactly what I've found to be true: friendship can be flawed but still provide perfect healing. Friendship can be stretched by time and distance but still come back unscathed. Friendship can be brief but still have a lifelong impact. Friendship can be completely unexpected but still divinely planned. This lovely book reminds us that time with friends is healing time; it is holy time. And no matter how busy we are or how much we have going on, we must make time for one of life's greatest blessings."

Rachel Macy Stafford, New York Times bestselling author of Hands Free Mama

"In a culture that glorifies busy, The Gift of Friendship is a refreshing reminder of the importance of investing in relationships that fulfill the soul. This uplifting collection of stories invites you to settle in and rediscover why friendship truly is a gift. It's beautiful photographs and encouraging words make it the perfect gift (no pun intended!) for the girlfriends in your life."

Kayla Aimee, author of Anchored: Finding Hope in the Unexpected

"Reading this book is like spending time with a group of encouraging friends. It's full of laughter and tears, beauty and brokenness, inspiration and honesty. Dawn Camp has created a warm, welcoming place our hearts can go back to again and again whenever we need to remember we're not alone."

Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of You're Already Amazing

"I was late to discovering the deep beauty of friendships among women. I moved a lot during my growing up years, and later became busy with work and kids and, well, life. I missed out on some of the best moments I could have shared with a friend, simply because I didn't realize my need for it. Fortunately, a couple of friends stuck with me as I found my way, and I've come to know just how very much I DO need them. As a 'beginner' in friendships, I find this book particularly meaningful. It makes me appreciate the friends I have and makes me want to reach out and widen my circle even further. It reminds me of the treasures I have all around me: women who enrich my life with their presence and who inspire me to do the same for them. The Gift of Friendship is a book you'll want to give to every one of your friends, because you'll see your own friendships in the pages and you'll just have to share it!"
