The Five Ws of Finding Friends
by Tricia Goyer
What: Be open to new friendships, always willing to take the first step.
When: Introduce yourself when you first meet someone new and make a point to learn her name.
Where: Friends can be found at work, at your kids' school, at church or around your neighborhood.
Who: Don't always look for someone similar to yourself. Some of my best friends are those older, younger and very much different from me.
Why: God created us to connect. Even though we risk getting hurt, the benefit of having a heart-friend is worth the risk.
