Details: Product Description For so many of us, our friends are like family members--we lean on them through our highest highs and our lowest lows--but sometimes those friendships don't turn out quite as we hoped. Bible teacher Kelly Needham debunks our world's constricted, narrow view of friendship and casts a richer, more life-giving, biblical vision for friendship. In Friend-ish, Kelly Needham reminds us that we were called to more than halfhearted friendships and lukewarm connections. We need something more stable, secure, and sacred. We were designed for real friendship--but the difficult truth is that too many of us are settling for less. Kelly deconstructs what Scripture says about the gift of friendship and takes a closer look at the distorted view that most of us have instead. As she shares the lessons she's learned from experience, Kelly paints her own glorious vision of what Christian friendship could look like.With hard-fought wisdom, a clear view of Scripture, and a been-there perspective, Friend-ish teaches us how to:Recognize symptoms of idolatry and toxic dependencyBoldly ask for what we need from our community of friendsUnderstand and address the problems that arise in friendship--from neediness to discordRecognize when it's time to end an unhealthy friendshipReorient toward the purposeful, loving relationships we all crave that ultimately bring us closer to GodFind the friends you need and start to become that friend for othersJoin Kelly as she challenges you to view your chosen family in a new light, gain a vision of friendship according to Jesus, and finally enjoy friendships as God intended.

"Ghosts Of The Mountains"
Snow leopards are one of the rarest seen animals on the entire planet. These vibrant and beautiful large cats are known to scale extemely high altitudes. Their homes are situated in high, riggidy, and steep mountain tops. Only found in Central Asia, these cats live in altitudes that are higher than any Canadian mountains. Their large paws act as snowshoes and their large and heavy tails keep them warm during the winter nights. Only a few number of explorers were ever able to see these wild majestic cats because they mainly live in solitude.
A Beautiful Life, a journey or path transcended by an inspired soul, a flicker of light for an otherwise dim world.
