"To shine forever as an example to all women, that is the mythic and
collective legacy of all sisterhoods. How do we begin to reclaim
our sisters? We get to know each other in all our depths."
Brenda Peterson, Sister Stories
A virtuous sister who is a faithful friend is a sister-friend.
Within every friendship, there is a bond of some type which varies
from person to person. We may have many acquaintances in life,
but as the saying goes, "True friendships, like diamonds, are precious and rare."
Francie Taylor, Sister Friends
Women instinctually know how to nourish each other, and just being
with each other is restorative.
There is space within sisterhood for likeness and difference, for the subtle
differences that challenge and delight; there is space for disappointment -
Sisters share a bond unlike any other - thornier, but also tender,
full of possibility.
Joy McCullough, Blood Water Paint
Lets us not be divided by the color of our skin, but be united by
the color of our blood.
Sometimes when we met people we feel a connection,
a sense of sisterhood. And usually that sense is correct.
Empower, lift and fortify each other. For the positive vitality
spread to one will be felt by every one of us. For we are associated,
every last one.
I believe in the power of sisterhood, so be that sister that another
woman needs or when you need a lift, find a sister....
Cheryl Barton, One Sister Away
Of all the blessings sisterhood can bestow, I think the greatest is to be
known, really known.
Colleen Sell, A Cup of Comfort for Sisters
I am a living testament that deep, amazing platonic friendships can
and do exist between men and women, and my life is the better
for all of my surrogate sisters.
Hill Harper, Letters to a Young Sister
I aspire to be the best sister I can be - wherever we end up - this is
my heartfelt pledge of sisterhood.
Melanie J. Pellowski, My Dearest Sister
Since all females are daughters of a loving Father in Heaven,
we are truly sisters, which explains our instinctive feelings of sisterhood.
Marilynne Todd Linford, Sisters Forever
We've all been through the storms of life. What a comfort to know the
One who quiets the winds and calms the raging seas - and sometimes
uses our sisters-in-Christ to do it.
" . . . blessings aren't just meant to be enjoyed - they're meant to be
used and shared with those who have less. The Christian faith teaches us
that on this day a child was born so that we might have eternal life.
And at the heart of many of the world's great religions is the idea that
we're all better off when we treat our brothers and sisters with the same love and compassion that we want for ourselves."
President Barak Obama
Christian Quotes about Life
Storm Sister ... a friend who sticks close when storms hit her friend's life.
Such a friend might also go by the title of sister, longtime friend,
rediscovered friend, or acquaintance who offers or accepts friendship
in a crisis.
Rorvik, Storm Sisters
"Help one another, is part of the religion of sisterhood."
Louisa May Alcott
God did plan for me to have sisters of the heart. Heart Sisters who
didn't grow up with me but will stand up with me no matter what.
Heart Sisters who know my most horrible qualities and love me anyway.
Heart Sisters who aren't related to me by blood but instead by
the sisterly bond entwined between our hearts. Heart Sisters are just
as strong as - and in some cases even stronger than - blood sisters.
Natalie Chambers Snapp, Heart Sisters
I love the notion of "storm sisters" - soul friends who help us get through
life's most raw and painful transitions.
"'Life is true devotion to one another, loving each one as sisters and
brothers. Be first to honor others by putting them first,'
Paul says (Romans 12: 10), and this is a challenge in humility, too, this living to honor others."
Rachel Toalson, We Embrace Wisdom
Encouraging Bible Verses
"Best friends are important. They're the closest thing to a sister you'll ever have."
Birthday Wishes for a Best Friend
"She is the mother I never had, she is the sister everybody would want.
She is the friend that everybody deserves. I don't know a better person."
"Sisterhood - that is, primary and bonding love from women - is, like
motherhood, a capacity, not a destiny. It must be chosen,
exercised by acts of will."
"Badges mean nothing in themselves, but they mark a certain
achievement and they are a link between the rich and the poor.
For when one girl sees a badge on a sister Scout's arm, if that girl has won the same badge, it at once awakens an interest and sympathy between them."
Juliette Gordon Low
"There is space within sisterhood for likeness and differences,
for the subtle differences that challenge and delight; there is space
for disappointment - and surprise."
"Things do get hard and it seems like there is no where to turn to,
no one that you can trust to talk to, no one seems to understand you.
But I am here to let you know my sister that God understands..."
Shareta Berry, 31 Days Of Inspiration
"Sisterhood is powerful."
"But what Mom never told me is that along the way,
you find sisters, and they find you. Girls are cool that way."
