Yes, God is your friend. The best kind of friend, actually. He's interested in the things you care about. He comforts you when you're going through a hard time. And He's happy for your when things happen in your life.
As with any good friend, the more you talk to God, the better you'll get to know Him. As you learn to listen to God's voice, you'll start to notice your heart and mind change too. This book gives you words to express what you want to say to Him.
