hey there


Have you ever scrolled through Instagram only to see a bunch of ladies who are killing it in their business, ministry, or home life?

Have you ever struggled to find adult friendships? 🙋‍♀️

Maybe you’ve just moved, you’re in a busy season of life, or you’re an introvert who has a hard time starting a conversation.

Perhaps you’ve tried to make friends, but it seems like nothing is reciprocated or it doesn’t click.

Or maybe you’re walking through a difficult season that has made it difficult to maintain your current friendships.

Navigating friendship as an adult can often be tricky and even overwhelming at times – I would know!

So in today’s episode of the SHE podcast, I’m having a candid conversation with Amy Weatherly and Jess Johnston, authors and founders of Sister I Am With You, about finding and building close friendships as an adult

Meet Amy and Jess

Jess and Amy are passionate about helping women have real conversations about friendship. After meeting in an online writers group three years ago, they quickly became long-distance friends and when they didn’t see anyone talking about the reality of making and having good friends, they founded the online community Sister I Am With You.

Their latest book, I’ll Be There (But I’ll Be Wearing Sweatpants), takes a deep dive into how to cultivate relationships in the midst of life’s often busy and messy moments.

I love how much great advice these ladies brought to the episode and I know you’ll leave this episode feeling encouraged and ready to dig into your friendships (or find some new ones)!
