Book Review - Heart Sisters


Heart Sisters is for women who want to both be and have better friends and want a helpful guide to take them through the process.

Author Natalie Chambers Snapp uses her own and others' stories of successes and failures to illustrate what she has learned about girlfriend relationships. Healthy boundaries, honesty, tact, sharing, and agape love all play a part in being and maintaining a circle of close confidants. She also deals with the inevitable challenges that face many relationships including how to handle conflict; life changes like a new baby, move or divorce; and when it is right to "break-up" with your friend.

Discussion questions, space to journal, photos, and quick interviews of healthy female friendships are included within each chapter.


Natalie Chambers Snapp is first and foremost a follower of Jesus, then wife to Jason, and mom to one spunky daughter and two spirited sons with a crazy amount of energy. Choosing to follow Jesus at 27, Natalie is passionate about sharing the grace, mercy, and truth of God's love. She lives in the Midwest with her crew and tries to keep it simple by writing about the faith found in the everyday mundane. The outpourings of her heart can be found at www.nataliesnapp.com in the fleeting moments between being a wife and mother.

This book is a definite must read for women and women ministry leaders (in my opinion!). There is so much great information in this book on friendship between women and the things we can do to really make our friendships more meaningful and less stressful.

I really loved how Natalie is so open with her heart and so candid in sharing her stories. She gets to the heart of so many things and gives us so much direction is being a good friend, finding a good friend, and more. 

It was so helpful to me when she shared the diagram of Jesus' friendships. The inner, outer and middle friends. This clarified the different friendships we each can have in our life. She even goes into our real-life friendships and our online friendships. It's amazing how the internet has given us the ability to have friends around the world that speak the same heart language we do. I love that she goes into this kind of friendship.

Some of the other things she shares with us are boundaries, taking care of ourselves, and what to do if we have a conflict with a friend. Everything is from a Biblical point of view, which I really like.

This book would be so good for women ministry leaders. As I well know, we can go into the women's ministry thinking all is going to be smooth and perfect, but we are all human and have human frailties. This can be a shock when conflict arises in the ministry. She shares how to handle things in ministry and I really liked this. This would also be a great book for church or small group studies.

This book is one of the best I've read on friendship. I learned so much and was so blessed by this entire book. You really will be blessed by this book, too. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
