Friday Favorites

It’s Friday afternoon, which means it’s time for 4word’s Friday Favorites. This week, we’ve been talking about love, specifically about the differences in how men and women relate to one another. And boy do we have oodles of “love links” for you this week. First, we’ll re-cap what we talked about on the 4word blog.

Previously on 4word
On Monday, Diane disproved the notion that men are the uncomplicated gender while women are the emotional ones whose feelings are easily hurt. She said that “we tend to take typical male bravado as a sign of a big ego, but in reality, he might be feigning confidence in order to hide painful feelings of inadequacy.”

Then, on Wednesday, we interviewed Shaunti Feldhahn about her best-selling book For Women Only: What You Need to Know about the Inner Lives of Men. For those who haven’t read it yet, For Women Only details Shaunti’s extensive research about what makes men tick. In our two part interview (one, two), she shared some of those results with us.

It’s Coming!
Next Tuesday, Work, Love, Pray will be shipping to all of you who have pre-ordered your copy. If you haven’t pre-ordered yet, you can still do so from Amazon, Zondervan or All proceeds will go to the 4word ministry. Also, in case you missed the announcement a couple weeks ago, we have made Chapter 1 available as a free download from our website.

Around the Blogosphere
Now for those “love links” we promised. We have a section on our support page dedicated to relationships, and this week, we’ve added a couple more resources to that list: Ally Spotts and The Good Women Project.

Here are some of this week’s highlights from the aforementioned resources:

Up Next
Next week’s theme is “pray.” We’ll hear from Diane about the fruit she is now seeing from a difficult time in her walk with God. Then, on Wednesday, we’ll be interviewing one of our 4word Portland girls, Ally Spotts, about what where she is now in her own walk with the Lord. So stay tuned, ladies, and have a wonderful weekend!
