About The Better Friend

An inspiring roadmap for women craving deeper friendships, with keen observations and biblical insights into what makes for joyful, meaningful connections—from an engaging speaker, writer, and podcaster.

Women crave true, vibrant friendships yet so often feel we have to resort to one-sided relationships, shallow conversations, and cliques riddled with comparison and resentment. After years of coaching women and finding community after starting over in a new city, author and podcaster Grace Valentine offers heartening truths and practical insights for finding good friends and being a good friend.

Grace looks at the moments when friendships left her discouraged, overlooked, and hurt and she meets these common friendship issues with keen observations and biblical insights that show you how to become a person who loves freely and receives lovingly. With her signature upbeat storytelling, Grace will help you:  
  • Learn to receive the gifts of friendship well
  • Take the scoreboard out of friendship
  • Stop longing to be included at tables that Jesus would flip and discover the incredible friendships in front of you
  • Navigate one-way relationships in a way you’ll be proud of
  • Develop holy boundaries to love radically but trust wisely

Finding true connection and belonging doesn’t require a miracle. Friendship can be messy but also so joyful and meaningful because in the end, we are all better together.
