“My dear friend Jennie Allen shows us how to make true emotional connections with the right people so that our authentic relationships can be healthy for all.”—Lysa TerKeurst, author of It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way
In a world that’s both more connected and more isolating than ever before, we’re often tempted to do life alone, whether because we’re so busy or because relationships feel risky and hard. But science confirms that consistent, meaningful connection with others has a powerful impact on our well-being. We are meant to live known and loved. But so many are hiding behind emotional walls that we’re experiencing an epidemic of loneliness.
In Find Your People, bestselling author Jennie Allen draws on fascinating insights from science and history, timeless biblical truth, and vulnerable stories from her own life to help you:
• overcome the barriers to making new friends and learn to initiate with easy-to-follow steps
• find simple ways to press through awkward to get to authentic in conversations
• understand how conflict can strengthen relationships rather than destroy them
• identify the type of friend you are and the types of friends you need
• learn the five practical ingredients you need to have the type of friends you’ve always longed for
You were created to play, engage, adventure, and explore—with others. In Find Your People, you’ll discover exactly how to dive into the deep end and experience the full wonder of community. Because while the ache of loneliness is real, it doesn’t have to be your reality.
Jennie Allen is articulate, humble, practical, insightful and wise. Her thoughts will help you understand your role in friendships, and how to thrive and connect in a post-COVID society.
Christian community building
As someone who is no longer a part of the church, this was pretty difficult to relate to at times. It felt very bias from a Jesus-loving, and incredibly extroverted perspective (and I am a flaming extrovert myself). I wish the summary had eluted to how religiously centered this book is. Having grown up in a Christian community, I can attest to how “finding your people” is a feat become significantly more accessible… especially when surrounded with so many like-minded individuals. I got a small, few takeaways. Overall, I don’t feel my Christian sister who is an introvert or non-Christian friends would be open to the delivery of the messages this book offers because of the exclusive perspective it’s delivered from. I can appreciate the passion, honesty and genuinity of the author. She writes from the heart and shares her personal truth.
