We Saved You a Seat: Finding & Keeping Lasting Friendships by Lisa Jo Baker

In today’s busy world, we’re wired to appear “fine,” warding off authenticity and shielding ourselves from judgment. We hide behind the hum of busyness to escape intimate friendships with the women God has placed in our lives.

We all yearn for authentic relationships and the opportunity to be the opposite of “fine” with people who cheer for us. But comparison, envy, and entitlement often stop us from pulling out a chair at the table. Friendship can be hard, making new friends even harder, and maintaining genuine friendship the hardest of all.

In this 7-session Bible study, Lisa-Jo Baker and friends from (in)courage explore our relationship with Jesus as the ultimate model for authentic friendship. Nothing shapes us like the impact of a friend—it’s how Jesus radically and intimately connects with us. Instead of chasing perfection, overcome your fear of being known and find the courage to connect.

- Explore your relationship with Jesus as a model for friendship.

- Debunk the myth of effortless friendship.

- Overcome the fear of knowing and being known.
