In her book, Heart Sisters, Natalie Chambers Snapp tells of a survey which found that 88% of 3,000 women polled believe there is an undercurrent of negativity and meanness with in the female culture. A high percentage of these women claimed to have been wounded by another. Snapp’s mission is to help her readers learn how to turn this around. She teaches them how to find and be heart sisters who care for and encourage one another. She teaches how to handle conflict with grace, how to forgive, how to set and maintain healthy boundaries, and how to know when it’s time to end an unhealthy friendship. She also teaches how to mentor the next generation of women, her reader’s daughters, so they won’t grow up to cause or know the hurts of the 88%.
Snapp closes the book with one chapter listing all the things heart sisters don’t do (and why) and another listing things heart sisters do. Both of these chapters summarize concisely what she’s taught throughout the rest of the book, so they’ll make a great quick reference for readers who want to practice integrating the concepts from this book into their lives.
In this book, Snapp shares her personal experiences as she shares the lessons she has learned. If you are looking for ways to strengthen the friendships you have or to develop some new ones, if you want to learn how to "be the friend you want to have," if “you are more interested in encouraging and supporting other women than you are comparing and competing with other women,” you will find solid suggestions throughout this book.
I received a complimentary eCopy of Heart Sisters from the publisher in exchange for this honest review.
