In The Friendship Project, Faehnle and Jaminet explore the cardinal and theological virtues with an eye toward friendship. Focusing on faith, hope, love, prudence, gratitude, loyalty, generosity, and prayerfulness, they help us answer questions such as, "What does it mean to be women of hope, and how does that change our lives and make us more compassionate friends during difficult times?" and "How does prayerfulness teach us how to listen to and talk with both God and our friends, which helps us reach out to those we love?"
Faehnle and Jaminet answer these questions and more by employing Church teaching and telling us stories of their own friendships and those from the lives of saints and biblical women-including the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Elizabeth, St. Therese of Lisieux and her sister Servant of God Leonie. Not only will you be drawn closer to friends both new and old but you'll also be reminded how these friendships draw you closer to God.
Prayers, discussion questions, and a study guide make this a perfect resource for women's groups.

"The Bible says that 'a faithful friend is a sturdy shelter and he that has found one has found a treasure.' The same goes for finding this book! We are all a work in progress, and while finding virtuous friendships can be difficult, they are vital in life. The Friendship Project shows us just how to find and invest in these intentional and virtuous friendships." --Sarah Swafford, Speaker and author of Emotional Virtue: A Guide to Drama-Free Relationships
"We live in a technology-driven world where people are instantly connected, yet in our own personal lives, we often feel isolated and alone. The Friendship Project is an inspiring and uplifting answer to how we can be internally connected and equipped to form lasting friendships--first with God and second with others. It underscores the truth that happiness lies in living a virtuous life." --Sr. John Dominic, O.P., Developer of Disciple of Christ, Education in Virtue
