Jen Wilkin on the Mistakes We Make in Friendship

When I first started telling others I was writing a book on friendship, I was inundated with questions and topics they thought I should cover. One question happened to be the same I myself had considered personally: Is it ever OK to walk away from a friendship? I had some thoughts on it, and I did in fact address it indirectly in my book, but it is a complicated and complex question. So when I recently got to chat with Jen Wilkin about friendship, I put that question to her, along with some other complicated issues regarding relationships, such as:

  • What is the biggest mistake she's made in friendship
  • What she's intentionally done that has most helped her begin or develop friendships
  • What she sees are the main hindrances to friendship that women create for themselves
  • How we know if/when it's OK to walk away from friendship
  • How we can both give and receive "faithful wounds" as the Bible commands

Jen Wilkin is a wife, mom of four, Bible teacher, and the author of several books, including None Like Him. Find her online at her blog or Twitter. Listen to our chat at the link below.
