Craving Connection: 30 Challenges for Real-Life Engagement is written by an impressive group of women who share their stories of connecting with God, friends and community. Each chapter is a vignette I could identify with, along with connection questions, question challenge and a prayer. At the beginning of each chapter is a challenge to consider, to engage and a relevant scripture.
There are a lot of relationship books on the market but I particularly recommend this one because it is written by real women, sharing real stories of their struggle and how they dealt with the particular topic.
The book is divided into three sections: Connecting with God More Deeply, Connecting with Friends More Purposefully and Connecting with Community More Intentionally. Within each section are the chapters, each short enough to digest in one sitting. I used them as part of my devotion time, skipping around to the chapter that felt most relevant for that day.
Craving Connection is for young women, mothers, retired grandmas and anyone else wanting to find those connections that enrich our lives and bring us closer to God. It’s a book that is on my gift giving list for my daughters and friends this year.
