Episode 124: How To Handle “Frenemies”

We are repeating one of our most loved episodes from 2023 with our partner and True Girl founder, Dannah Gresh. Scripture tells us that Jesus was a good friend – He stayed in relationships even when they were difficult. Kori asks the question, “Is it possible to raise children to love Jesus, imitate Him, and be a good friend to others even when it’s tough?” The answer is “yes,” and you’ll hear some great stories to help you navigate the “how” from Dannah.

Ready to redefine friendship according to Scripture? Let’s go!

DANNAH GRESH is the founder of True Girl, cohost of Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth’s Revive Our Hearts podcast, and a bestselling author. She has written over twenty-eight books, including a Bible study series for tween girls and their moms. She and her husband Bob live on a hobby farm in central Pennsylvania.
