Ep. 8: Battling Loneliness & Becoming a Life Giver with Pam Farrel

Unfortunately, loneliness is a normal part of life for many Christian women.
So many of us long for true friendship (and know it's an important part of being our best selves) but have no idea how to connect in meaningful ways with other women as we all are “too busy.”
What skills do we need to not only develop deep friendships but to be life givers to those who feel marginalized and alone? 
How can we grow in meaningful connection with others and share God's love, even in the midst of our hectic, busy lives?
battling loneliness | I am lonely | what to do when I am lonely | christian women friendships | making friends with other women | women friendships | how to be a friend | how to get more friends | how to build better friendships
That’s where today’s guest, Pam Farrel, comes in.
Pam has written a guidebook (7 Simple Skills for Every Woman) with powerful mindsets and practical tools that teach us how to relate to one another (and to this brave new world we’re living in) in a way that allows to us stay connected and busy, but still honors our boundaries and the God-given limits we must employ for truly vibrant living. 
I had a chance to sit down with Pam (literally in my bedroom podcast studio!) to talk about 7 simple skills women can use to overcome loneliness, develop lasting friendships, escape overwhelm and find a better life. 
  • 7 coping skills every woman needs to find calm and escape overwhelm
  • How to invest in true “life giving” friendships in a digital world
  • Why it’s OK to go deep with only a handful of women
  • Tips for finding friends and developing quality relationships when you feel alone and isolated
  • How to become a life giver to others (and transform the world one person at a time)
Pam Farrell is a bestselling author of 47 books, many of them with her husband Bill Farrel, including Men are Like Waffles and Women are Like Spaghetti, Red Hot Monogamy, and 7 Simple Skills for Every Woman (the book we reference in today’s episode).
