  1. True. It’s the sharing of hearts–not just words or pictures that make US REAL FRIENDS & Even More so SISTERS!!!

  2. Dawn, congratulations upon the release of your wonderful new book!! The Gift of Friendship really *is* a gift, and I’ve had the privilege of reading every, single story. I loved it! I thought maybe readers here would like to read my review of it. Thank you for assembling such a wonderful array of stories, which testify to God’s gift of the friendship of women. What on earth would we do without our girlfriends?! ~Fondly, Lynn

    The Gift of Friendship, compiled and edited by talented author Dawn Camp, is a fragrant friendship potpourri. Dawn has gathered together a bright bouquet of beautiful women, who have distilled their experiences into the most passionate expressions of their hearts. Their stories are perfumed with love, compassion, caring, and forgiveness. Some are spiced with humor, wisdom, and wit. And permeating this meaningful mélange is the redolent love of God, which has motivated them both to seek friendships and to sustain them. Such transparent stories sometimes reveal pain, because the most exquisite potpourri is made from torn petals. And yet, as women have relied upon God’s healing balm, their friendships are saturated with the sweetest fragrance of all—the fragrance of Christ. Dawn has artfully arranged this compilation to include a vivid variegation of writing by some of the most gifted authors today. Though tempted to read this book in one sitting, you’ll likely prefer to savor its aroma more slowly. And no doubt long after you close the cover, its scent will linger in your heart, inspiring you to be a better friend. I highly recommend this book. It will be a wonderful gift for every woman whom you call friend!

  3. Dawn,
    Congratulations on the release of what is sure to be a great book! Friendships take time and perseverance. You must be willing to forgive, forget and just love each other! God knew we would need soul sisters to walk this life with us!!

    Blessings 🙂
