Author Biography

It may sound simple, but Angie Dent cares about people. She is passionate about helping others. It is that same passion for helping others that led her to write Just for Girlfriends!!.

In her hometown of New Orleans, there’s a favorite tasty dish, borrowed from different cultures, called gumbo. It’s a big pot full of chicken, sausages, shrimp, mild seasonings and bold spices. And it simmers long and slow in a thin, brown gravy. When you taste it, you feel good.

Just as gumbo is a mixture of many cultures, Just for Girlfriends is a mix of Christian women from all walks of life.

Angie wrote Just for Girlfriends!! to share different experiences from Christian women that would help another Christian sister experiencing the same.

Christian women are moms, wives, daughters, sisters, friends, bosses, employees, caregivers, prayer warriors, group leaders and many other things
in-between. Whew!

Angie wants Christian women to be refreshed and inspired. She wants her fellow Christian sisters to know it is going to be alright because God’s Word says so. And she wants Christian women to find friends within these pages that let them know,
“I’m with you.”

After a Christian woman reads Just for Girlfriends!!, Angie wants her to feel like she just ate a bowl of gumbo!

Just for Girlfriends!! by Angie Dent is a beautiful collection of stories about strong Christian women, and how their faith has helped them with life’s dilemmas. Sometimes we can struggle in our relationships with children and loved ones. Maybe there are marriage difficulties, or you feel overwhelmed when life doesn't go according to plan. This book will explore the possibility that if your faith in God is strong in the most difficult of times, then the answer will come in all manner of ways. The stories will shine a light in your hour of darkness, and inspire you to believe in the power of God to give you the strength and support you need. How can you revive a marriage that has lost it way? How can you build bridges with your children? This book is filled with inspiration and techniques to restore your faith in God. Also included are valuable discussion questions which will encourage self-awareness of your behaviour.

Each of the short stories conveys a very clear message that anyone can relate to. Belief and faith can sometimes be lost in the struggle of everyday life. Your vision becomes impaired. These stories will clear the murkiness and help you find a solution. The characters have been very well created, and the dilemmas and story lines are cleverly constructed. I could relate to the stories, especially 9 Months, where a new marriage is saved by being understanding and compassionate towards your spouse. Alaina's Ending was a beautiful story, reminding us to treasure the times we have with loved ones before they are no longer here. Finally, String Of Pearls is a heartwarming tale of how a parent supports their child through life. The affirmations at the end were motivational for me and the discussion questions will really make anyone question their own thought patterns.

Just For Girlfriends is a well written inspiring book. It is ideal for any womans' group of all ages. Angie Dent is a creative inspiring author who know how to captivate her audience. I love the discussion guide. It allows you to develop an in-depth dialog on the subject matter. I would recommend her book to high school teenagers and above. Great job.

Just For Girlfriends couldn't have been better written. It's an easy read book. All of the short stories are heartwarming and impactful. My favorite story is on page 57 called 'Praises'. It brought back memories of me and my mom's relationship and how she taught me God's power and strength and how to pray. There is a bonus story but I believe the bonus is the questions at the end of the book for each chapter. It would make a wonderful class room discussion book for a ladies group. God Bless You Angie

Writing style is fantastic!

I just finished reading Just for Girlfriends!!, a very, very good book! This is a collection of short stories that are very “real” and timeless in meaning and appeal. While reading, I was reminded that trials may come in life, but more importantly, I was reminded and reassured of guaranteed triumphs because of my faith in God. So, when life gets tough, slip on a pair of red shoes and be reminded that you are victorious!
