S5E4 Show Notes: A Little Companionship Goes a Long Way with Michele Howe

by | Jan 24, 2023 | The Love Offering Podcast Show Notes

Our relationships have a profound impact. We need each other, yet so many of us are lonely. But friend, you are never truly alone. The Lord is ever-present and the best companion of all. And He has given us people to live life with, however, sometimes these relationships can be difficult to navigate. Michele Howe is on the show today helping us to make thoughtful, prayerful choices about the friendships we develop and nurture through life. Join us today as we explore various facets of our relationships and how to cultivate community.



“You are a sinner in need of a Savior.”


“I was searching for everything but Him.”


“He is a Friend closer than a brother.”


“Be intentional. Life is short.”


“Do I have such a fear of man that I’m hesitant to share about the Good News?”


“We grow in community. We are interdependent on God and each other.”


“We are afraid to be authentic because we’ve been hurt in the past. A good relationship is worth the risk.”


“Are you friendly? Are you the kind of friend you’d like to have?”


“We often find our best friendships as we do life naturally.”


“Open your friendship circle to let others in.”


“You will become like the people you’re surrounded by.”


“We have an enemy who wants to draw us away from the Lord.”


“We are commanded to forgive but we don’t have to continue to let people hurt us.”


“You need a friend to mentor you, peers who are in the trenches with you, and a younger woman who needs your mentorship.”


“We need to be good listeners and sympathizers. We can’t just commiserate, we need to point each other back to God’s Word.”


“If I’m not spending time with the Lord, I have nothing of value to give my friends.”


“A little bit of encouragement goes a long way in our relationships. We don’t need a tremendous amount of time to make a significant difference in the lives of others.”
