Many of us struggle to build deep friendships as adults. We might feel too busy, too nervous to be the first to say hello, or too anxious about being rejected or hurt to invest in others. But there is hope in the gospel that we can cling to as we build biblical friendships. In this episode, Krystal sits down with pastor’s wife, podcaster, and author, Christine Hoover to discuss the beauty of friendship and how to overcome the barriers we face to build it. You will be blessed by the biblical wisdom she shares and the encouragement she leaves with us as we seek true friendships rooted in the gospel.
