Why We Need Girlfriends


Every girl needs a good girlfriend, or two, or four, or as many as she can gather around her!

Let’s face it ladies, husbands are no good at commiserating over morning sickness. The only time they get that sick, it is their own fault, and they keep pretty quiet about it. But girlfriends will share their tried and true remedies.

Girlfriends know the precise level of honesty that you want to hear when you ask how you look in a new outfit or haircut.

Girlfriends know when you need a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Girlfriends can understand when you are so proud of your kids that you feel you might burst, and they know that you are not gloating, just proud.

Girlfriends share secret family recipes.

Girlfriends point out with a giggle when your teen is wearing sweatsocks with dress pants, and they know that it snuck past you on the pre-church inspection.

Girlfriends understand your need for long phone conversations about nothing at all.

What is your best girlfriend story?

I'm a Lutheran pastor's wife and mom to six kids, including young adult sons down to 8-year old twin daughters. My life is sometimes normal, and sometimes crazy; but through it all, I know that I am blessed! Some people say that I have my hands full, I prefer to call it living life with both hands full, and I love it!
