It was wonderful to get to know about the friendship among saints and to realize that holiness can be “contagious.”

This book challenged me to reach out to my old friends and to make new ones, revealing the true meaning of friendship. Emily and Michele share their lives, their experience in a very honest way and they talk about the virtues we need to nurture true friendship. One of the most interesting aspects of the book is to see the saints with their friends. We often here that the saints were good friends of Jesus. Sometimes we hear about their confessors, their parents, but I never thought that they had real human friends. Therefore, it was wonderful to get to know about the friendship among saints and to realize that holiness can be “contagious.”

Faith filled, easy to read, interactive, and full of great stories and insights!

Absolutely LOVE this book! The Friendship Project has helped me reflect on my friendships; not only my current friendships but also the ones I've had over my 42 years of life. It has been an eye opener;  thinking about the virtues of friendship and where I may have missed opportunities in being a loyal, prayerful and generous friend.  Initially when I began reading this book, I was placing some of my friends in certain categories as what kind of friend they are, but as I read on,  I realized I was to reflect upon myself and the kind of friend that I AM! Friendships are a gift and having faith filled friendships make them even more sweet! This book is not only for Catholic women but women of any faith and age! I have ordered many copies of this book and plan on giving The Friendship Project to all my friends, new and old for upcoming birthdays! I would recommend this book to any size church or Bible Study group!

Inspired by The Friendship Project, I reached out…

Being a part of the pilot study for the Friendship Project has been such an inspiration for me to be a better friend at a time when one of my friends desperately needed a good friend. Several weeks ago, my neighbor and friend tragically and unexpectedly lost her 13 year old son. Inspired by The Friendship Project, I reached out... I tried to be the hands and feet of Jesus to her. I continue to reach out to her to offer support and love. The Friendship Project prompted me to extend my love to her deeper than I would have, if I had not been exposed to Emily and Michele's inspiring message on friendship. Using the Eight Virtues, this book helps you to become the friend that God created you to be.

What a warm and wonderful book!

I found "The Friendship Project" informative and up-lifting. As I read the topics of prudence, gratitude and loyalty I learned very practical advice on how to enrich my current friendships and open my heart to new friends. What a warm and wonderful book!

Upon reading The Friendship Project my spirit feels encouraged!

Reading of these beautiful saintly friendships and real ways people apply these virtues I have found a sense of boldness. This knowledge has removed timidity by giving me concrete ways to be a great friend. I've never seen a book about friends who became saints - what an amazing idea!! Just ordered a couple to give to a few special friends who have been there for me in difficult times. Thank you for this!

A compelling case for the lost art of spiritual friendship.



"In an age that values social networks over face-to-face relationships, Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet make a compelling case for the lost art of spiritual friendship. They draw from a rich vein of personal experience and the lives of the saints to prove that the old proverb is still true: to have a friend, you must be a friend. Read this book to find out how."

How to find and invest in intentional and virtuous friendships.




"The Bible says that 'a faithful friend is a sturdy shelter and he that has found one has found a treasure.' The same goes for finding this book! We are all a work in progress, and while finding virtuous friendships can be difficult, they are vital in life. The Friendship Project shows us just how to find and invest in these intentional and virtuous friendships."

Inspiring and uplifting.




"We live in a technology-driven world where people are instantly connected, yet in our own personal lives, we often feel isolated and alone. The Friendship Project is an inspiring and uplifting answer to how we can be internally connected and equipped to form lasting friendships—first with God and second with others. It underscores the truth that happiness lies in living a virtuous life."
