“Thanks for coming to inspire our Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group. First, just hearing your story gave them great hope for finding purpose and living meaningful lives during the intense mothering they are immersed in at this stage of life. Also, encouraging them to focus attention on female friendships when they feel so stretched already between husbands and multiple children was so important because too often letting friendships go is the default mentality. Most of the moms are realizing that they need good girlfriends and with your book and MOPS they can start developing some lasting ones according to your Friendship framework. Thanks so much for sharing with us!
– Dot Chapman,


“I heard the author speak at a local event and even though I am in the counseling field, I heard some new ideas about female friendship that I had not ever considered.”
