About the Book

The following are some remarks, both positive and negative, that young people have made regarding friendships:


• I have two friends, and they are real.

• My friend and I are confidential. I cherish that. 

• I have been disappointed by people in the past. I don’t know whom to trust. It is best to stay by myself.

• People are not what they seem to be. They are pretenders.

• They call themselves my friends, but they say bad things about me behind my back. 

• People are not nice. They start off good, and then they hurt you.

• A friend should support you when you are facing any difficulty, but I have never seen it.

• My friend is the best!

• We have been friends since we were toddlers, and now that we are teenagers, we are inseparable.


There are many more comments about the experiences of young people when it comes to friendship. Most of them are bad. This book, along with the Bible, will help young people to make the right choices in association.

About the Author

Maria Marchan was introduced to the Bible as a young child. As a teenager she started studying the Bible, and that study has been going on for more than thirty years. Although she has worked in administration for twenty years, in her private time she teaches a Bible study at her Sunday school. After resigning from her job, she extended her Bible studies to a public school in her neighborhood. 

Maria especially enjoys working with children and teenagers. She believes that while children are still young, if they are taught the biblical principles of life, they will go in the right direction. She has observed that many children do not have the privilege of having anyone to inculcate godly values in their lives. Her desire is to instill a love for God and His Word into children. 

She also reads books published by Christian authors, like Joyce Meyer’s Peace, Expect a Move of God … Suddenly, and Do It Afraid; Joel Osteen’s Your Best Life Now, Become a Better You, and I Declare; Roy Hicks’s Healing Your Insecurities; and books by other writers. She did a course at the Rape Crisis Society of Trinidad and Tobago and studied child psychology at the University of the West Indies, Open Campus, Trinidad and Tobago. She currently does volunteer work with children and teenagers.
