by Rose Mitchell
After sixteen years of marriage, Rose Mitchell’s husband divorced her. Suddenly she found herself single in a world geared toward couples. She fell back on her strong Christian faith for emotional support, but also prayed for strong friendships with other God-fearing women. Often, when she found such friends who were married, the friendships eventually faltered and died as the friendship and the marriage came into conflict.
Covenant Friendship reflects her struggle to find how to sustain and to grow such friendship. Guided by Jesus, Rose gradually found what changes were required in her own behavior to permit such friendship, and she shares them with us here. The process of spiritual growth may be painful, but it is necessary and ultimately satisfying.
