In Which I Answer Your Friendship Questions

Each week this season on By Faith, I’ve talked with a guest about the ins and outs of friendship. I've enjoyed each and every one of my guests and the wisdom they've brought us. Today is perhaps my favorite episode, however, because my longtime friend, Jo Franklin, joins me to answer your questions for an "Ask Me Anything" episode. That's Jo and me on the top row with our two other good friends from high school, Natalie and Anne.
Here are the questions we tackled:
  • How can we maintain long-distance friendships?
  • How, as a pastor's wife, do I keep from feeling fragmented in relationships? How do I handle feeling left out?
  • How should we keep healthy boundaries in relationships and say no when we need to?
  • How can women who are same-sex attracted honor God in their friendships and handle their temptations wisely?
  • What's the best way to pursue friendships when you're new to a church?
  • How do you reengage friendship when you've been hurt?
  • Should we be friends with someone we don't want to be friends with?
  • What are some overarching truths you've learned about friendship?
You'll also hear how Jo and I met, why my hair was the first memory she has of me, and what embarrassing thing we did together that makes me laugh every time I think of it.

Listen to my conversation with Jo on iTunes or, if you're on my website, in the embedded player below. Enjoy!
