“These days it’s never been easier to connect with people,” says David W. Welday III, owner of HigherLife Publishing & Marketing. “The proliferation of social media and other forms of communication seem boundless. Yet, in the midst of all of this ability to connect, why is it that Americans are feeling more and more isolated? Could it be we have lost the art of truly ‘connecting’ with other people, that real friendships are on the decline – being replaced by a broad band of superficial ‘acquaintances? You and I were made for relationship! Something in our soul longs for a deep, abiding, trustworthy friendship, the kind that can sustain, even inspire you during those tough life seasons. In The Power of Friendship, you will be encouraged, even inspired, to seek out and pursue friendships that can last a lifetime.”
