Friends for a Season?

There's something wrong with your friendship, but you can't figure out why. Is everything in your head? Unfortunately, toxic friendships happen to everyone, but we seldom identify the underlying issues while we battle confusion or the friendship breaks up.

Maybe you're left bewildered in the friendship's wake, paralyzed to move forward.

After wading through several difficult friendships, Mary DeMuth reveals the seven different types of toxic relationships and empowers you to identify the messiest relationships causing you the greatest anguish.

  • Face the reality of your broken relationship, and unearth exactly what went wrong.
  • Discover why you may attract toxic people.
  • Heal from broken relational patterns so you can choose safer friends.
  • Evaluate when it's time to press into a friendship or let it go.

You'll gain a new relationship with Jesus as you trust him to be your confidant, healer, and life-giving friend.

"Navigating friendships as women can be difficult and confusing. Mary DeMuth has written an excellent guide—showing us how to avoid 'deadly' traits in others while recognizing less-than life-giving traits in ourselves."
Joanna Weaver, author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World

"In The Seven Deadly Friendships, Mary DeMuth puts words to the friendship grief we have all encountered. She gives us space to work through our unique situations as we feel seen and validated. If you want to be equipped to identify destructive friendship patterns and gain life-giving practices you can implement today, you need this book!"
Melissa Spoelstra, speaker and author of Elijah

"In 30 years as a mental health practitioner, I've had the privilege of working with patients who have struggled with and suffered through relationships akin to those detailed in The Seven Deadly Friendships. Mary helps us identify those toxic relationships and then points us to seven life-giving practices to help us receive and extend healthy friendships."
Dr. Michelle Bengtson, board certified clinical neuropsychologist, author of Hope Prevails 

"With warmth and candor, Mary DeMuth writes about deadly friendships in a life-giving way. Her 'hard-won wisdom' will enlighten and encourage you to examine your own friendships. Everyone can benefit from this compelling book filled with scriptural truth and memorable stories that ultimately point to Jesus and the path to healing."
Judy Gordon Morrow, author of The Listening Heart

"The Seven Deadly Friendships is a great addition to any counseling center's resource list. Our center will be recommending it often. Mary DeMuth not only accurately identifies numerous traits of difficult people but also gives practical solutions to those who are struggling."
Michelle Nietert, M.A., LPC-S, clinical director of Community Counseling Associates

"Vulnerably sharing her own experience and that of countless others, Mary DeMuth points us toward finding and becoming healthy, whole friends. Learn how you can break free from shallow and toxic relationships, cultivating life-giving, joyful bonds instead."
Cherie Lowe, author of Your Money, Your Marriage

"Mary DeMuth is a gentle, wise and humane guide to navigating those ruptures, healing wounds old and new, and confronting the messed-up patterns that caused us to choose those friendships in the first place. The Seven Deadly Friendships is a bracingly truthful and deeply graceful journey into the past and the present."
Lorilee Craker, author of 15 books, including Anne of Green Gables, My Daughter and Me

"Like a traveler who found her way out of a dark valley, Mary DeMuth is a seasoned guide when it comes to navigating the rocky terrain of unhealthy friendships. Each chapter of The Seven Deadly Friendships is bursting with personality traits, character sketches, and personal examples that provide a detailed map of how to get out of the pit of friendship despair."
