We are so excited to share our new book with you, This is our personal story of how we cultivated our own friendship over many years. It is our hope that as you read these pages, you will be inspired to invest in soul-shaping, heart-satisfying friendships.
In a time when many women feel lonely and isolated, Girls’ Club (Tyndale Momentum) calls us to embrace the delight and comfort that can be found in life-giving friendships with women—and to cultivate relationships that not only offer emotional affirmation and acceptance, but also inspire, educate, and stretch us to live out our God-given potential.
Told through stories and encouragement based on the authors’ experiences: Sally, a seasoned mother and well beloved author, her daughter Sarah, an Oxford scholar and new mother, and her youngest daughter Joy, a professional young woman pursuing her doctorate, Girls’ Club will speak to the importance of cultivating deep and lasting friendship at every stage in life. Join Sally, Sarah and Joy as they explore the power, difficulties, potential, beauty and satisfaction of friendships that help us live purposeful lives and that satisfy our longing for meaningful and intimate companionship.
From our hearts to yours, Sally, Sarah, and Joy
The Girls’ Club Experience, a companion to Girls’ Club by Sally, Sarah, and Joy Clarkson, is a guidebook for women of all ages who want to cultivate deeper, more satisfying friendships with other women. Believing that friendship must be cultivated like a garden, the authors have compiled tools and seeds—discussion questions and fun, practical exercises—to help readers start planting.
Whether you work through the book with a current friend, a new friend, or a group of friends, the chapters, discussion questions, and exercises are intended to draw you into deeper knowledge and trust of one another.
Our publisher Tyndale Momentum has generously provided the opportunity for one of you to win this amazing gift so that you can have a holiday in Oxford, and enjoy high tea with us at a lovely and celebrated old hotel in the historical center of town. We will have our own girls club time together, and will have a heart-to-heart conversation with you to encourage you. We will also provide insider’s input on how best to enjoy Oxford, and all the best places to visit.
