What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

As a therapist who has worked with girls for 30 years, I believe friendships are harder for girls to navigate than they’ve ever been. Girls need good, trusted guides to help them navigate the world of relationships so they can find their own sturdy voices of kindness and strength. Let’s Be Friends does just that. I’m grateful for the truth and wisdom Calyn and Blythe have shared in these pages, and I can’t wait for it to find its way into the hands of girls.

For your teenage daughter or the teenage voice inside your own head—what a welcome relief to hear this kind and relatable encouragement in Let’s Be Friends when it comes to the complicated area of female friendships. 

—Lisa-Jo Baker, bestselling author of Never Unfriended 


So many of our daughters struggle with the deep desire to make and keep great friends. Blythe and Calyn have created a practical and encouraging resource for girls to explore what God says about friendship. A much-needed resource! 

—Courtney DeFeo, author of In This House We Will Giggle, mom to two daughters 


Calyn and Blythe Daniel have created the friendship manual girls have been looking for to help guide them as they begin to independently establish healthy relationships. It is pretty, interactive, and most importantly, it points girls to God's word for how to navigate friendships. I have been working with middle school girls for over twenty years, and friendship struggles have been a constant issue among my students. Let's Be Friends allows girls a place to process, to pray, and to learn how to have a godly response during friendship challenges. I wholeheartedly believe girls need this book. 

—Christina Sachtleben, middle school teacher, spiritual life director, and mom to a daughter 


Let’s Be Friends is an authentic, relatable book for any girl who struggles with friendships or wants to connect with others who will respect her. The book can help readers better understand God, who knows her, loves her best, and created her for friendships. 

—Grace Valentine, author of To the Girl Looking for More; blogger, podcast host, and speaker
